Thanks man!

And whoops I guess I hadn't reinstalled the IO yet when I took the picture.

When you order the high airflow front panel it comes with the dust filter built in smile.gif

As for the Monsoon res, it's a little deceiving from that picture, it's not flush with the aluminum, about a quarter of an inch inward. I am thinking about taking my original front panel and having it water cut using monsoons template and fixing it to the front of the res like a previous poster did. It's so unbelievably clean when you do that...

I have mobo/cpu/gpu blocks. I'm running 2x 240mm EK PE radiators up top and up front. I have a EK Pump/Res combo that I was going to mount to the front radiator, not a huge fan of the 5.25 Pump/Res look. But in our case being as cramped as it is, i'm thinking about it again.

I may switch out my current GPUs for 980 TIs and W/C as well, if I go that route I will cut the drive bays out and run a 360mm XE (thicker) and then mount the pump and res a little higher to clear the top of the 1st card. Cause I can't run a thicker rad and pump/res because the limited space between the GPU/RAD.

Looks awesome though!

Thanks man. Yeah I mean I originally wasn't a huge fan of the drive bay res setup and was looking at more of a setup like yours. What I've found though though is top 240 rads don't always fit because they tend to block the CPU power plug on the mobo of the asus vii matx. The rad has to be pretty damn thin...

One thing that might be pretty sick is to mount the res on top, horizontally, and have it run the length of the window. Stick your 240mm rad/fan combo in front but I don't really know what kind of airflow that leaves you with. Meh just kinda the way it is when working with micro atx cases.

I haven't thought of the CPU power nightmare yet.. mad.gif

Hey guys, I'm planning to watercool my build and I need some advice.
In my rig at the moment there is one HDD and one SSD, both in the hdd cage. Both 5.25" bays are free. So I have a i5 4690K and this would be the first component to be watercooled, since my 960 (EVGA 04G-P4-3967-KR) doesn't have a full cover waterblock (right?) and anyway wouldn't need watercooling that much I'd say.
I'm planning to put in the case a 2x120mm radiator, cpu waterblock, pump and reservoir. No gimmicks. Now I have some options:

(*) Radiator on top, 1 bay pump-resevoir combo (I heard they are difficult to bleed and fill?), hdd cage left were it is now.
(*) Radiator on top, pump and reservoir combo like EK-XRES 140 DDC or similar mounted on top of the hdd cage (will it fit there?)
(*) Radiator on top, pump and reservoir combo like EK-XRES 140 DDC or similar mounted on the floor of the cage or against the front fans (are there holes for a ek 120mm fan to 50mmx50mm adapter?)
(*)Radiator at the front, single bay pump+reservoir combo and hdd + ssd in the other bay with an adapter I already have...

What do you think is the best solution? I generally like ekwb for the design of block and stuff, but I'm open to alternatives..

Hey David,

I think your best bet with this case is a dual bay res/pump combo. I personally went with monsoon and an alpha cool d5 pump...stupid quiet. The only thing I'll say about mounting the 240mm rad on top is be careful because there isn't a lot of clearance and depending on what mobo you are using it may actually block your cpu power plugin etc. As far as bleeding and filling the drive bay res you have to take the front panel and io out to fill and drain, which sounds like it's a pain but meh it's just a few minutes.

If you're set on using the 3.5" HD cage then I doubt a 140mm (14cm or 5.5inch) res/pump combo is going to fit in front, especially if you are using the ssd cage as well. I also like the idea of moving the hard drives to the 5.25" dvd/cd bays and going with rad/fans mounted at the top and pump/res combo in the front. Ultimately it's fun (and a little frustrating) working in this case but pretty rewarding when you're finished.

This is how I've got mine setup. Good luck!
