Thanks guys, glad you all like it! the frame for the grill is aluminum and the expanded metal grill is steel. Check out my build log....

is the fan grill you made mounted down or just comes right up?

In the picture it is not mounted. I still need to drill holes, I'm trying to decide between screws or allen head bolts. not sure yet.

Quote from you "If you're taking the time to remove the top to install fans, I'd recommend also using a dremel or small hole saw (1/8" maybe?) to remove a small section of the plastic top cover right above the hole in the metal case roof (near the mid-line on the "back", i.e. the side that ends behind the MB tray NOT the windowed side), as this will allow you to route the fan wires down and do so very cleanly. On the opposite side from this hole, there is another one that is the perfect size for a "bulkhead" fitting and if you make a similar cut into the plastic top cover (similar to the one for the fan wires), you can easily use this spot for a fill-port mount!

ONE BIG PIECE OF ADVICE: Take a few pictures of EXACTLY how everything is laid out, as I had some difficulty getting the LED's for the HDD/PWR to properly align, which could have been prevented by simply taking a picture. Oh, and I would also consider, if using a radiator, to cut out the cross-braces, or at least some of them, as they block some of the airflow; it's not a huge deal, and I doubt it'd make much if any performance difference, but it MAY reduce fan noise.

Oh, and when you install the fans/rad, I'd use some thin (1/4-1/8 inch) compressible gasket, either the compressible foam type (usually has adhesive on one side) or the compressible rubber type, putting it between the case and the fans, the rad and the case, and the fans and the rad. Not only does it act as a vibration dampener, it also prevents air leaking out."

Wow, thanks for the info, actually I'm installing my radiator with its fins on the bay side. Since its tight, I was going undo the top and pop it in that way. I'm not so hands on as you, wish you lived near by, I'd be interested in some of the damping tricks. I would need to buy more supplies. I'm not sure if I'm savvy to to do cross braces. I'm not sure what those are. Also, you mentioned making a hole at the top for the fans, the top has a square box in the middle to route the fans, wondering if I really need to.

Ty sir, I love the PSU mount, gonna mount the SSD on to the PSU so that it will be visible, and the other 2 HDDs on the other side.

Anyways, I guess now we can say that a switch 810 has native support for a 480 rad in the bottom (I did not have to drill a single hole or anything)

I have the water 2 extreme in hanging position, inside the case, it comes with two 120mm fans so with my 3 140mm at top.
35mm long screws? would I need hex nuts as well???
the holes on the top of the case appear to be pretty big ( for the standard coarse threading fan screw)

The screws should work no issues. The holes are perfect and they give a nice sunken look to your screws.

Hey guys I need help ASAP.

I'm typing on my laptop now because my pump LITERALLY just fell apart. The pump came loose from the housing, I shut the PC of right away and water went spraying everywhere. I dont know if it's the pump, the pump top, or the orientation I had the pump it (mounted vertically along the back wall of the case). Please someone just help, I dont know what I need, but I unplugged everything, and shut it all down.

Plus side of this is I was gonna drain and refill anyway, negative is that I dont know what the source of the issue is

thanks for any assistance (I think im gonna air cool my next build haha)

I'm thinking its the pump top, because when I try and screw it back in to make it tighter for security, it overscrews and goes right back to being loose again...

Ok I ordered this one even if it's the pump

I'm WAY more confident in the 6 or so screws in the back holding than I am of one large backplate being screwed in...

I'm freaking out right now haha

I think you are on the right track, it seems to be the pump housing, specially the way you describe the way the screw just spins.

You don't have to over tighten the screws too much just get a good feel for them.

I went with the 35X for the reason that I did not wanna mess with pump tops.

make sure you let all your parts dry and hope nothing else went back.
