It's done with the sleeved NZXT led light. If I had to choose again, I would probably go for one of those high density Flexible LED Strip Lights instead.

I might do a mod to fit a second 420mm radiator in my Switch... Any thoughts?

I'm pretty partial to extreme modding, but even then, it has to make at least some sense from a fairly practical perspective.
Why not put the money into a nice 2500K or 2600K SB system and go to a 7970 or 680. Both would get you a lot more horses under the hood than you have now, and you could keep your already adequate WC system.
Just my thoughts,

You have some very good points. I'm planning on upgrading to an Ivy Bridge system and getting SLI 690s at some point this Summer so I was wanting to upgrade my cooling first. I was looking at putting the second 420 in the front of the case. I've removed the lower 5.25" bays and HDD holders so I believe there's room. If not, I can remove my fan controller and possibly do some dremel work to get it to fit.

Thanks so much +REP thumb.gifbiggrin.gif

IT Diva / Darlene - great look on your case, can't wait to see the end result!

Did I read right that you have the fans on top pushing air though the radiator into the case?

I am hoping to try a water cooling mod later this year and would have thought to exhaust out the top of the switch though the rad, is it better to intake? Does this not blow hot air into the case and onto the CPU block?

It pulls colder air though the radiator rather than pull hot air through it. I'm setting mine up the same way.
post #4129 of 13812
Hmm, good point. So do you only have one exhaust out the back and the rest are intakes through the rads and at the front?
