Thanks for pointing that out, freitz. rolleyes.gif It's the lighting I was using, tried to get rid of the yellowness as best I could in CS6, some photos turned out better than others. I still liked the angle and how you could see slightly in the case, that's why I still used it.

Its a great shot. I thnk some of it is this monitor at the office just checked on my phone and I didn't notice it nearly as much. I had a lot of yellow in my pictures because of the lighting.

Well thanks. I would have gone for some outdoor shots (like I have done in the past redface.gif) but was a crappy rainy day yesterday. Maybe in the future when I change things around. wink.gif

Really nice case and build. I like how the blue plays with the white case and fittings. Do you think the bitspower res was worth the price? I've been eying one for my build.

Thank you. I think the BP reservoirs are great, this is the 4th one I've used. Sleek, sexy, and built great. They're not all that expensive IMO either, for example the 150mm BP all acrylic version is $39.95 from FCPU while a 150mm EK res is $49.99 from FCPU. But the EK res has a lot of ports, probably adds to the cost. Either way, yes the BP is worth the price.

Thanks for the reply. I may have to get different res for my S3 build. I have a 250mm EK res (left over from another build), but the ports are off-center on the top and bottom, so it doesn't center over the pump. It may also be too large. I'll most likely get the bitspower setup like you have.

Lastly, I'm organizing a light box right now and was curious to what wattage bulbs you are using and are they tungsten or CFL? Thanks.
