So here's the post to get this current. I put my listed sig rig hardware into this case. Let me tell you, I don't know how Syr managed it with two loops. I had such a hard time working the watercooling into this case, and I only have one loop! I really need to get a reservoir so I can use Syr's fill-port, that would make filling much easier. As it is, I filled it from my res-top and ran the pump little by little. A few weeks later my friend Underdog loaned me his 240 XSPC radiator. So I installed it along with my Swiftech MCR220 in series. It makes the front look much more even. I can't wait to get some 480 rads, then the front will look really awesome. Anyway, here are some pics I took before install as well as tonight. This case is still a work in progress, but it's getting there!
Here's my motherboard and loop installed on the mobo-tray. This removable tray is so
I ended up taking the lower card (my GTX260) out because I couldn't get my secondary slot to pick it up. The top card is my GTX275.
That's all I took for installing everything. Here are the pics I took tonight. This is the view I have everyday while I at my desk.
The dual radiators from the front. GTX275 folds with shaders at 1620mhz at 38C.
Here it is with the flash on. First, let me apologize for the fingerprints, lol. They don't show that bad unless there's a flash so I usually just dut the case off and let it ride. Also excuse me for the interior dust, I need to dust it (as you'll see, lol).
Now, you'll notice a piece of tape on the side of the front panel. That's because there were two small plastic retaining clips which keep the front secure. One of these broke shortly after I got the case; I'm unsure how to repair it. I'll have to post about that later. For now though, a small piece of tape works.

And here it is with the flash off. Mmmmmm, smexy!
Close (er) up of the pump!
This shot it looking up from the pump into the case. I just liked the angle, lol. You can also see the small fan I have on the VRM sinks of my GPU.
The PSU side of the case.
This is an angle looking down from the radiator onto the PSU.
And here's a picture of the hardware from the top of the radiator.
If any of you pay close enough attention to my cases, then you'll know that none of my cases are complete without my Batmobile!
Just my trinket from somewhere that ended up being my case mascot. Haha!
So that's how it sits right now. Again, if anyone wants closeup shots of anything, just let me know. I'm more than happy to take some! As far as the hinges go, I really love how the smooth hinges look. They make the case seem much more industrial and less ornate, which I think suits it more at heart. The smooth hinges let the acrylic become the focal point, and I like that. Thanks everyone!
