One other question while I'm at it, how would you guys rate the stock dust filtering of the case?

I found the internal mesh a little to restrictive so I removed it. I still found that just the standard metal mesh works well as it is.

Get one you won't be disappointed with it. For a small case it can swallow more than it looks. as for filters, they're ok. if you need more you might want to consider a new vacuum cleaner as well wink.gif definitely highly rated from me and at a very good price. It came down to this and the Corsair carbide 540, after looking at both cases, I went for the xb on price and moddability.

I finally found time to begin to get the watercooling loop into my rig. Rig specs are in my sig. I've been building watercooled and extreme cooled rigs for 10+ years, but this is only my third case build. I'll post more pics later this weekend when I get the pump and res located and get the rig leak tested.

Are you just running a single 120 and 240 radiator in this configuration?

Yes...but with cold air inducted thru the case. In philly it's getting down to -6 to -10C at night for these last few weeks.

Pulling in air from outside somehow?

Oh boy.. The itch is back -_-
Im seriously considering venturing into acrylic tubing!


this is an older pic, but my setup still looks more or less like this.
My plan is to change the tubes: 240rad->GPU, GPU->CPU and CPU->120mm.. leaving the tube between 120->res and pump->240 since that would be a pain in the old butt to replace with acrylics.. and wont really be that visible.

Only stuff I can get my hands on is:
EK - HD Tube 16/12mm - 1meter
EK - HD Adaptor 16/12mm - 6pts
anyone have any good / bad stuff to say about that?

Since Im going acrylic, I will probably add some dye to the coolant.. any suggestions? was thinking red since that is kinda my theme here..
Mayhems deep red.. would that work with cheap distilled water (+ silver coils) or does it need to be added to mayhems own premixes or something?

Thanks thumb.gif
