The way it is set up now the rad gets cold air from outside pulled into the case. The cooler air passing over the rad helps lower waterblock temps. Then that air is sucked out of the case by a 230mm and a 200mm fan. I got the coldest temps like this so i left it. My evga video cards also exhaust hot air to outside of the case. The only heat that cant be directly ported out is the actual componets of the mobo and memory however the case fans are working to remove all standing heat.

i would paint it glossy black or keep it the black that is because personally i think the case painted red does not look good, but good luck with your build it looks great thumb.gif

Thank you for your input. Ya know the black and red really is growing on me. Glossy black might be a great idea!

For those keeping score at home this case has:

3 x 200mm Cooler Master megaflow fans 110CFM 19dB
2 x 180mm Phobya G-Silent 18 ,700rpm Red LED Fan 100CFM 18dB (these are twice as good as the other cheaper Phobya fans but cost twice as much)
1 x 230mm Cooler Master fan ??CFM 19dB
1 x 80mm fan on a pump heatsink

i'd stay away from the nzxt fans... pretty high failure rate

As for NZXT everything I have ever bought from this company has been kinda crappy quality. The Phobya G 18 LED fans turned out to be really nice and one of my favorites in that size.

This is the True Gold Bitspower compression fittings:

The company was very good in service. I got exactly what I wanted fast considering where it came from. I had to cancel an order as well and they refunded my money very fast same day. I'd rate them A+ in service.
However for the money and looks the True Brass is close but not as pretty or shinny at 1/3 the cost and a week less to ship. *** On a side note I love the packaging and stamps you get from Hong Kong. It is so cool lol.

I would love to but I would lose a 200mm exhaust fan which is critical to this cooling setup. I could put the clear fan on the window but I would still be looking at a fan. I want a bigger monster size case so I might not do too much more on this build.
