Hmmm.... Now I wonder what that might be a template for?

Modified that PSU label a bit for my build. I think I'll use this. I couldn't find the same font that corsair uses so i just found something that is simple and does the job.

For my reference, print scale is 173 x 28.43mm.

Love the work and found the link you gave very useful for a filter. One question though, any particular reason why you decided to leave the fan mounts (filter housings) on in (on the bottom of the case). When I'm able to get my build up and going (mid of the month when I return from vaction) thats going to be one of the first things I do. Also, did your Res come with the long mounting screws, if not... what size did you use?

To answer your first question; I wanted to keep the cases stock filter arrangement. One of my themes for this case has been; keep everything internal. Albeit; you will limit yourself on hardware leaving the stock filter setup in. You wont be able to use those new OC Cool 540 rads, just the magicools, and you wont be able to use any mobo that extends beyond 9.6 inches.
Overall, aesthetically; I think internal filter mounts looks much cleaner, and I use the guide rails to easily remove the bottom rad from the loop for cleaning.

Second; my res came with all the hardware I needed to mount it. You cant see it well in the pictures, but I'm only using one of the U shaped brackets and a single mounting screw to the 5.25 bay. It gets the rest of its structural support from my fittings. It ended working out perfectly that way for me; when filling the loop, I can easily reach the cap on top the rez to allow air to flow in so I don't get back pressure problems while cycling pumps.

Those are BenQ XL2410Ts. Unfortunately I lost a lot of my pictures when I was making their brackets and modding the housings. But it should be apparent from the pics how I did it.
