Check Amazon for strip LEDs. You can find a roll for ~10 bucks. You can wire them up in anyway you like and it is cheap!

I'm not too knowledgeable with watercooling, as I don't need it, but here's a basic setup. A bit on the expensive side, though.

the insert actually sits on all four sides of the frame but I might make a few adjustments as i doubt the aluminium will handle upwards of 30kg

You could always make the upper part of the frame where the insert sits into a basket...

If he is doing 3d Modeling, would definitely benefit from going to at least the i7 3770k or maybe even going socket 2011.

Unless you're doing raid 1, a 4TB drive is cheaper and takes less space than 2x 2TB drives.

Why? You pay $150 more per card for similar GHz and less GDDR RAM if you get the 7970 GHZ...

The point is to mirror the two together in case one of the drives fails so you don't lose any data.
