I took the panel off and put it back and i guess it clicked the right way because it stopped lol. Thanks for the advice though!!!!

2) i fit the 280mm radiator with 15mm hole spacing up top. if you dont use rubber grommets it will fit natively. If you really want the grommets (like i did) youll have to expand the holes on the case into ovals. Took me 15 min with a small file. Very easy. Pics of both setups somewhere in this thread, ill link them once i find them

3) yes there is. Well i think so anyway. you wont warp your motherboard. Youll be able to carry your case around without worrying of something breaking . the closed loop can either be quieter or perform better depending on fans. and by that i mean it will either be quieter than an air cooler, or cool better than an air cooler. Especially with a 280 rad. Your cooling capacity is directly related to your fans. You can fit 4 on a radiator. the biggest heatsink ive ever seen can only support 3. That alone would give the closed loop an edge.

Another thing that i think benefits is overclocking. It seems that in tests I've seen, watercoolers really come into their own when you start OC'ing the CPU. Agree with all your other points too. smile.gif

Yea no problem. I think it happened to me before when I first got the case. I just took it off and checked each of the 6 tabs to make sure it was correct. Bend it straight if you need to and you're all set.

In on this crew, gunmetal black. Will post a terrible picture of my bad job later when I get home from dinner. I shoved a ton of cables in the back and just jammed the side panel closed tongue.gif

Thanks guys- I think I'm gonna go ahead and go with the X60 since it's pretty much exactly the same as the H110 but from what I've seen the stock fans are a bit better and have PWM connectors. It also outperformed both the H100i and H110 in overclock3D's test by several degrees, especially with their 3960X at 4.6GHz. Looks like that 35% increase in surface area over a 240mm rad makes a difference. And yeah, having to remove an air cooler every time I move my case or worry about cracking my mobo would be a pain.
