I asked about the Komodo Barbs earlier.

Today I found a great deal and got a 7970 in a Swiftech Komodo water block for $250. I spent the whole evening setting it up, I did have to cut some corners but for my first step into real water cooling I think I did well. I'm a little paranoid about leaks, especially since I shaved off layers on the H220 tube to be able to fit it in the barbs that came with my 7970. The temps are really good, my 6950 with a custom cooler usually idled around 40C but the 7970 and i5 3570k both stay just under 30C.

I'll buy an extra radiator and real coolant rather than distilled water some time next month.

The case is an Arc Midi R2, it fits the H220 well but you won't be able to put in all the screws.

Bonus points if you can show me how you did it on an Arc Midi R2 case!

With the Arc Midi R2 it would be as simple as installing the H220, making a template and doing a little cutting to the top grill. The fan are slightly above the fill cap, so there's no modding other than an access hole for filling. You're lucky to have a case where you can just install the unit, doesn't seem like anyone has posted about a HAF XM install yet, so I guess I'll post pictures after I do mine.

Edit: Here's an image with the unit mounted in the Arc Midi R2 and the fill cap visible.

That.was.perfect! Seriously, perfect visual, thank you. I just need to figure out how to make the new hole there look clean.

Consider the whole jar of bonus points yours!

$200 ?! Ha! You just gotta love supply and demand... no way in hell I'd ever pay that, though.

In the image I linked all 8 screws appear to be in the proper locations with the H220 offset to the outside edge. Here's the full article, they don't mention having any mounting issues.

I have an MSI Mpower, much like a saberthooth for example it has a rather large heat spreader (big thing just above the CPU). Due to that the mobo impeded me from putting the H220 in what otherwise would be the regular screw holes, I basically had to put the radiator farther away from the CPU on the roof of the Arc Midi and use the mesh as the screw holes. Its not really a big deal, its better than putting the fans on top of my old HAF 922.
