Sexy watercooling pics and all smile.gif still no love...

The next plan is going to be a new motherboard

A modified side panel for a larger window kind of like the switch 810

Fan controller for the radiator fans

Fully modular psu so I can sleeve the whole thing

Another 470 for sli

Probably another 240 rad, once I find a place for it smile.gif
