I have white LEDs biggrin.gif I agree though they beat any other colour hands down because rather than flooding the case with a sordid colour they just allow the individual component colours to stand out.

My friend bought my old Elite 430 and he's adamant to have red LEDs in there but requires me to do the cutting soldering wiring and installing.

I have white CCFL's. I prefer them to LED's as the tend to give very clean light.
White is the only colour lighting I could see myself having.

I decided to go with a Corsair H60 water block and 2 Cougar 120mm fans for the front (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835553006).

Made the purchase yesterday on Newegg, should be here on Wednesday, which will give me a fun project for this upcoming 4 day weekend.

The whole reason I bought this case was because I WANT to overclock. My i7 3770k doesn't do well overclocked without some serious help. I don't want it to go over 80c, and it gets up to 79c on stock voltage and speeds with my current cooler.

I have some Arctic Silver 5 laying around. When the Corsair water block gets in, would it be beneficial to use my Arctic Silver 5, or should I leave on the pre-applied stuff that comes on the water block?

I have high hopes for this thing. I have an i5 2500k being cooled by a Cooler Master V8 CPU heatsink, and I'm able to OC it to 4.4GHz without it going over 60c. I'll be upset if my i7 doesn't beat that with this water cooled block!
