Interesting. I can honestly say I've never considered "red annealed copper". tongue.gif

Well....nothing is in its final location. Just putting it in the box to help make decisions. The main reason I have it setup this way is I'm still thinking about doing a murdermod style "luminous panel" for the floor of the motherboard side, and if I do, I'll need that bottom bay space available. Might have a logo cut-out of that bottom 5.25 bay plate and have the light from the luminous panel illuminate the logo.

But the AMS rad does extend a little bit into the 5.25 slot immediately above or below where its placed. Only on one side.

More of my new CaseLabs accessories. After I had initially purchased my TH10, the option for the XXL window door was made available. I picked up one for both the motherboard side and the PSU side.

This is the regular window:




And this is the XXL window:




I can see how some people might not like showing the extra space...because if you have a bunch of messy wiring there, it would just be distracting. But if you have some pretty equipment planned...it gives you a way to show off more of your build. I'm going to have the reservoir and AMS copper fin rad there...and the XXL window will show it off. I think I'll probably use the XXL on the motherboard side, but keep the regular window on the PSU side. On the PSU side, it shows a lot of the harddrive cages. Not ugly....but not particularly beautiful. After I get the sata data and power cabling done on that side, I'll take a look at it both ways and decide.

I think most people usually dislike the XXL because they have 5.25" bay devices that would stick back a ways: blu-ray, hot-swap hdd cage, etc; and it looks tacky to have the side of a bunch of metal boxes right against the window. In your case, it makes perfect sense because you only have a couple 5.25" devices and they are above and below the visible window. One thing I notice is how small your reservoir looks in there: are you planning to center it vertically or mount it with the extra motherboard stand-offs?

Yeah....it looks a little dinky. I actually had originally asked FrozenQ to do 400mm versions, and I changed my mind at the last second, and did the 250mm versions. Not sure if I regret that or not. It still may look acceptable once I finish everything though. I was planning on centering it vertically and if I do the lighted floor....everything raises up from the bottom an inch or so. The pump would also be decoupled in some way from the floor, so it would be even higher. I'm definitely not going to use the motherboard stand-offs, because it would create additional difficulty in sliding the tray out.

Plan B? .....get 400mm res's.
