Will do, I'll have to get some of that sticky tape to make sure it stays there as I don't believe the case came with adapters for screw holes.

Great C70 build...nice touch with the M3 Lee on the top. It's always good to meet a fellow tanker! definitely one of the most addicting pc games i've ever played.

Howdy, folks.

Name's Craig. I guess you'd call me a "legacy builder." Computers were always in my house growing up, built my first full system in the early 90's and second in the early 2000's. The machines always run reliable and long until they're technically irrelevant. Being 2013, I'm again at the top of my "cycle."

But I'm not here to write a book. I've picked up a C70 in military green. Despite my lifelong leanings towards AMD, I've got Intel's I7 3770k on the way along with a Gigabyte Z77X-UP5.

An uncommon motherboard choice here, I know. But my primary purpose for the machine is not gaming like many of you. Top usage will be zero-latency multitrack recording (via a Presonus Firestudio Tube and automated mixing board) along with secondary HTPC duties.

I'll happily post pictures as I piece it together, though I doubt it will impress as much as some of the rigs I've seen here.

I do plan to make this my first build with water-cooling. And to that end, I had a question:

The general rule of thumb seems to be 120mm of radiator for each block, plus 120mm more. Yet I see several of you using a 360 up top along with a 240 up front. Assuming you're cooling the CPU and one GPU only, why the overkill? I plan on mounting a black ice GTS 360 on the ceiling (which apparently only leaves space enough for bottom-mount fans), with a cooling block on the CPU and any relevant motherboard graphics chip (never worked with the Intel 4000 stuff before).

Again, not gaming, so a beast video card setup is not a priority. Though maybe I'll be swayed in the future. smile.gif

Appreciate the input. I did mow through 176 pages of the thread to educate myself a bit. I know better than to ask B Negative how he mounted his radiator and I'm aware another member is in need of professional help for his carbon fiber addiction. smile.gif

There are mounting holes at the bottom for 120mm and 140mm fans. Depending on the size of your PSU you can install a 140mm fan next to it. Or if you remove the bottom hard drive cage and the plastic support base you can install it in the forward position. Personally I have one in the middle by the PSU so it blows air towards my graphics card.
