The window is hit or miss. I don't have a problem with mine at all, and have never cleaned it.

no from my onlineshop caseking.de i made rma to them. In germany we dont have a direct NZXT support i think. I also noticed that the windows is vibrating a lot. when the pump had contact to my case it was horrible.

You should have Dwood make you a cover for that bay res that says: "VESPULA VULGARIS". Have him cut it out and paint it and then you can have the yellow dye showing through it so it looks cool. biggrin.gif

Leak test was good!

I completed my cable management and hooked the rig up and it started with no shorts or electrical fires biggrin.gif. Temps looked great with exception to GPU2, it was idling around 50c when GPU1 was around 25 - 29c. I loaded up a game and instantly shot up to 100c and I immediately shut down the computer, drained the loop, and disassembled the GPU. This GPU is the non reference (No IHS) and I have the correct waterblock for it but it looks like I didn’t put enough Shin Etsu on it or the waterblock isn’t making perfect contact with the die. I hope I just applied the Shin Etsu wrong. I may have been too conservative, not all of the die was covered with paste as if I didn’t put enough.

I reinstalled everything using OCZ freeze since I have more experience with it and it spreads easier, but I have to wait till I get off work to refill the loop and check the temps again. Looks like I put the Shin Etsu on the GPU with the IHS correctly, temps looked great from what I seen.

redxmaverick, WhoKnew22, Knucklehead and socketus thank you for reply and help! As well as thanks to everyone else on the forum with the pictures and various other information you all have posted!
I think I am sold! I will definitely pick up the Switch 810 over the CM Stryker as soon as I can find it form under $150 or $160.

I will pick up the gunmetal color. I just have one question though: I'm planning on doing a gunmetal/blue themed build. I don't want to overdue the the colors or anything. I'm thinking of probably just getting 2-3 more blue LED fans in addition to the 4 that already exist on the case to light the insides up. Are there any guides or recommendations for doing this? As in color matching/keeping balance and all?

Also, has anyone ever used the NZXT Sentry LX Fan controller? (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811992004) what are some good recommendations for fan controllers of this kind?
