Your going to have to get something like this if you want to hear beeps on post. Not built in on the Switch 810

I wonder why is that? Nver had a case without speaker included now that you mention it.

I've been using all NZXT 140mm fans in my switch, save the hyper 212+ cooler (corsair fans).
Hook them up to a fan controller and you will be sweet thumb.gif
Even on full speed they don't make much noise and push a decent amount of air

Hmm that is a buttload of fittings Diva. Maybe I should try to do some extensions and leave the ports on the radiator facing the back of the case.

Got my EX360 with swiftech helixes in P/P mounted today, redid my wire management, moved the fan controller to the top bay and my optical drive down one. Hoping to get the raystorm mounted tomorrow and figure out where the pump and res will go. Will start a build log tomorrow, but between Sons of anarchy and working on my build I barely made it to work on time tonight.

If you use the short 90 degree adapters and extensions and then the compression 90's, you can get by with a lot less cutout on the optical drive cage, which could be easier to do. In truth, more cutout like I have doesn't have any negatives, and adds ease of installation and better airflow for the front fan, so it's pretty much a win/win. Cut the side brackets for the top bay as shown, and you can still use the bay for a fan controller, so it's not "lost".

Trying to put the fittings at the rear with the SR1 isn't going to happen in a positive way. The I/O box is in the way of just about anything.

The reason you can see some 420's with the fittings to the rear, is that they are rad brands that have the fans spaced 15mm apart, so that the actual length of the rad core is 10 mm less than a HardWare Labs series rad that has the fans spaced at 20mm. Those users had to drill 8 new holes for the center and rear fans, but the end result is that the fittings are 10mm further to the front than with a HWL rad, and for that reason, they clear the I/O box.

Here's a pic of when I first was looking at fitting my HWL 420 with the fittings to the rear:

Note that in this pic, I have already slotted the holes in the top to slide the rad forward a little bit, but when slid forwards enough to just barely clear the fittings at the I/O box, the top front fan won't fit because it's too far forward and hits inside the top trim panel.

If you used a fitting setup about like this, flipped around to the front, with 7/16' X 5/8" tubing, you could probably get away without cutting the optical drive cage, just the little side plates.

Quick off topic question for those of you who have purchased mdpc sleeve. Do I need any other tools besides the molex pin remover if I want to sleeve everything (24 pin, 8 pin, pci-e, molex, sata, and usb)? Did you measure all of the wires and multiply for the length of the sleeve or is there a nice round ballpark number that would cover all of the wires in my case? Lastly, is the mdpc sleeve worth the cost or should I go paracord? TIA

I usually measure out a length of the 24 pin cable, usually it's about 2 feet, so I order 1 meter for every wire. You'll need the molex tool (the pronged one) to remove pins from the cables.
Is MDPC worth it? Yes. Best looks, best fit, best heatshrink, best conformation to what you're trying to do. Personally, I'd set fire to my PC before using paracord. Some people like it, and hat's alright, but I don't. I've sleeved 6 PSUs, 4 of them using MDPC and the results are always better.

You get what you pay for.
