Brave man, being the guinea pig with 7 rads, 150 fittings and lots of waterblocks. Maybe you could already set up a small trial loop with just a reservoir, pump, rad, the cheapest block and a bit of tube and some fittings? I'd hate to see anything go wrong with all your cooling hardware in one move...
This.

For discussion and closeup pictures, see this post....or peruse the whole thread from the beginning.
At some point this week, I'll be doing my REAL dye job that this entire sleeve dyeing thread has been leading to. Instead of some sample lengths of sleeve....I'll be dyeing 100 meters of MDPC-X white sleeve, and turning it into my beloved OU crimson color. I'l also be doing some heatshrink, some connectors and some tubing. The whole dyeing testing thing has been a lot of fun.

Just a quick question, I see you are using the unshielded male fan connectors, is there a reason you use those over the shielded versions? It would seem to me that the shielded versions will make a more secure connection for at least your fan headers. Yes, it does mean more work to put pins on the end, but it's not that difficult.

I probably should consider that, because I'm going to have a lot of male connections on the custom harness' I'm making. But wow....FrozenCPU is pretty proud of those. 75 cents each, without the pins? I paid like $5 bucks on Amazon for a pack of 100 of the regular male connectors. I might see if I can find a better deal on them somewhere.

Some pics of what the build looks like right now. Thank you to everyone who voted and steered me toward the crimson fan blades on white frames. I love they way they look in the case.

This spot is where I'll tackle the first custom fan harness. Something running right down the middle of these top two radiators, connecting all 8 of them to one cable going to the power source. It's something I can still work on while I'm waiting on my hardware.

And I'll also go ahead and get these little baby fans painted and doctored up this week. Need paint, sleeving and custom harness to connect them all together.

Nothing will be external. But I have 3 different size tops for this case. The standard, the 64mm, and the 85mm. So I could go this route, and still put a top on it that covers everything. What I plan to do is see how much room is left in the case before deciding which pieces go in the main compartment and which go in the top. Right now, I have the push fans in the main compartment and the rads and pull fans on top. But it will be covered no matter which direction I go.
