. The routing is pretty standard. Picture the pump under the res ..ok so out of res to pump top ..then out to Rad then Rad out to block inlet then out to res inlet. All black tubing and matte black fittings. Shortest runs physically possible.

He's wrong about them looking dark orange. I have 2 strips and they look red. Plus they are bright as hell. If you wanted a custom looking led strip try modelers brand (he's on this site too, artisan).

I have seen that name ..artisan ..may have been in photo gallery.. yeah its hard to tell what's what with his reviews sometimes.. I'm leaning toward the green now to get that night vision feel. And the strips look easy to work with:thumb:

i swear, dude. its the little things that get you. ten bucks here, ten bucks there. screws, fittings, etc. it adds up almost as much as the components themselves. my last build was brutal. i will never again use fittings. going with barbs and these things, which i highly recommend, especially for an all black build as sexy as this one:

good luck with the build.

edit: i would do intake for all of the fans. i am a huge fan of positive pressure cooling, and it has been shows in a few cases that it actually makes the air flow REALLY fast out of the back of the case when you just put a grill on the rear fan hole instead of a fan. a fan just slows it down. night be a chance to do something cool and creative with the rear fan hole if you dont put a radiator in it.

I do have enough fans that i could setup 2 x 120mm spectre pro in front for intake,,,1 x 200mm spectre pro in side panel for intake,,,2 x 140mm spectre pro in bottom for intake and then your saying to also swap around the rad to intake at top rather than exhaust. and leave rear 140mm hole open,, no fan.. Indeed that would be a positive psi for case interior.. i only question the top rad fans ,, i like the idea for exhausting out the top, leaving 140mm rear open ,,no fan,, and intake with front,,bottom ,,and side.. I can always experiment to see what happens.. And so true about being Nickel and Dimed to death on the small stuff..thumb.gif

Yeah and the worst part is shipping. So many parts like fittings are small enough to not cost much to ship, but with how the companies charge what seems like a minimum amount regardless of size/weight for shipping, it ends up killing your wallet if you miss a piece and need to order up 1-2 small things in a hurry.

On the topic of pressure, I would say definately go positive pressure, but be aware that if you are doing top intake and have a lot of dust/pets/ect you will want to put a filter on that top intake (possibly the others as well) as it will get messy pretty quick.

Yes for sure positive psi in the case. I am exhausting out top and rear. Actually removing the filter in top so it improves flow out. Front and bottom are covered with manufacturer supplied stuff not great but at least better than nothing. Side panel is an issue and needs something..see there's more nickel and dimes right there..sigh
