Great looking build! All RoG, all the time. biggrin.gif

The only flaw I might mention (and it's really just a matter of personal preference, I suppose) would be building a rig that size, putting it on casters and putting the Aquero in the bottom bays. Me, I'd have to have that thing up top and center stage, all up in my business and such, and I'd love it and caress it and...er, ahem...what I mean to say is it's far too nice a piece of kit to hide down near the floor. Right, then. tongue.gif

Why on bottom
This rig will be on my desk, thats why i put aquaero on bottom
I tried on top and center but to high to reach it

Another point, keep this space to install another rad

Makes sense. I saw casters and assumed it would be on the floor. I'd be to askeered to put a case on my desk with that much stored kinetic energy. tongue.gif
