jeez thanks for noticing!thumb.gif yes thats a u12p. i chose a thick dual rad with low fpi for quieter cooling without requiring many rads due to lack of space. i wants my cooling but i wants my quiet as well!

I have to say thats amazing. Coming from someone who spent hours just for my cable management, I cant imagine doing this.. Good job! You should check out my photos though, tell me what you think for my cable management, maybe give me some other/more ideas?

well im not the most experienced guy but i would propose turning the psu so the fan is facing down. its cables will be against the other side of the case and try to push them between the hdd rack and the sidepanel without the window. the gpu cables should go underneath the gpu, between it and the hdd and also cram behind the hdd tray. dont be worried about the space behind the tray, its more than enough for the psu cables! you just have to try and kind of spread them against the rack, dont bunch them up too much or you side panel will bulge out. and i personally prefer having the hdd at the lowest section, maybe the one before that.

nice. i did the same once but a 360. overkill for just the cpu, so i replaced it with a 120 rad . . .

i mounted the 120 where the 120mm fan normally is installed and mounted a 140 fan just behind the front cover. it is a black ice i bought from axipher and it fits. if i ever water my gpu, i prolly add another 120 like i did on my intel rig.

yes . . .



only one hdd. the black ice is thin and it fit plus there is room for a fan between the case and the front cover.
