I have MSI z77 MPower board.. Did anyone did it that way?? And know for sure that it is possible or not??

Sadly, not likely without modifying your case. I have the Corsair H110 and it just fits and is 52mm with attached fans

Joa3d43, what is your case fan and radiator fans configuration? Push-pull for the radiator I presume. Are the rear and top fans kept as exhaust? What about the bottom fan? Also, where did you place your pump and reservoir?

...as stated, it is not quite finished yet or I would add more pics...but here is a quick summary

1.) 200 mm top fan and 140 mm 'stock' rear fans are reversed - top and rear blow in biggrin.gif
2.) additional fan behind the case (where vid cards' connectors sit) blowing in - ditto for either 2x 120 or 1x 200 for the main side window (that's the hold-up as I am trying to locate SLI bridges longer than 12 cm - the Asus ROG MaxVEx has the extra slots if I can find bridges long enough)
3.) XSPC 360 / 60 rad stands vertical RIGHT BEHIND the front grills - has 3 'pull' 120 mm fans upfront and 3 'push' at the other end (mix of Thermaltake rad fans pirated from a Thermaltake 2 water Extr. and Noctuas).
4.) The other back panel (covering the CPU opening) has a 120 mm hole cut in right where the CPU / VRM location is at the back of the mobo...using a low profile Scythe 120 for that.
5.) First airflow tests show positive pressure of reversed system (but again, not done yet)...for now, keep bottom fans off to see if I need them or not
6.) Swiftech MPC 655 pump is elevated a bit from the bottom, sitting between rad and PSU
7.) Swiftech res is mounted 'half way up' (and just above pump) on what used to be the vertical bit holding the HD cages (2x HD and 2x SSD moved up top, 2 HDs underneath plastic cover, though not final yet)

...key will be the final location of tri-SLI cards as they are heavily modded but need breathing space - and side fans for them I finally decide on, subject to getting the right SLI bridges (placing the fans in a cut-out of the glass window)

Hey guys, ages and ages ago back in the summer I posted about the possibility of modding a Storm Trooper, well I started... got halted and then started again and have just finished it.

Got the original idea for it here after a google search on a window for the ST, took a couple of ideas from early pages in this thread and went at it.

I made a blog of what and how I did it, if you would like to take a look.

CMST Mod Blog

But here's some pics anyway.









So thanks for the ideas guys!

Edit: Oh yeah, the insides are comprised of:
Asus sabertooth 990FX mobo
2 x Gskill Rip Jaw 4gb 1600 RAM
AMD Phenom II - X6 - 1100T 3.1ghz (3.7 Turbo Charged)
Zalman 990NT Heatsink/125mm Fan
NVidia GTX480 1536MB DDR5
Asus DVD Burner
Rosewill Lightning 800 - 80+ Gold Cert
Sentry 2 Digital Touch Screen Fan Controller.

wow ive never really liked green lights in cases, but you managed to pull it off very nicely. It definitely gives a biohazard look to it. Now change those red leds on the power/fan control to green and well be set thumb.gif

Thank you for the positive feedback, to be honest I was very warey about the green, but I've always had blue and didn't want to go red, I gave it a shot and am happy with it. I think the UV blue cables help break up the green, which was the idea, a bit of variation.
Yeah I looked at changing the Red leds, not a nice job, have you ever looked into that little panel? pretty scary but is something I will be doing down the line, there are a few more tweeks I want to do, some custom cabling for true cable management and a few more UV bits and pieces to fill out the black spots, being careful not to over do it.
But hey, it's all trail and error right? the scary part was cutting the side panel since you only get one shot and replacements are not cheap.
All good though, thanks again! smile.gif

By the way, LED green strips supplied by http://www.modelersbrand.com/
Excellent product and even better service, highly, highly recommended!
