I finished the build last night, I'll post some pictures later. The pictures arent that good because the camera hates being pointed at lights and it messes it all up. I'll see if I can get some decent pics.

Here are some pics.











Not the best cable management but its not bad I guess. H80i was much harder to install than I expected.

Looks great . . . cable management looks nice an clean thumb.gif

Just curious, what issues did you run into with the H80i as I will be installing the same cooler into mine. Any advice of potential problems would be welcomed.

Cheers

Thanks, I had a few problems with it actually.

First, I wanted to install it in the normal position where the back fan would be, however in this position the CPU block doesnt fit on properly because its so close to the radiator and the tubes are kinked. Secondly the cables that are fixed to the block, for the CPU fan header and pump power, are really short so you have to make sure you have a SATA power port somewhere near the top of the case. I barely just about stretched that cable enough for it to fit, Also, the block requires a ton of force in order to make it even start to screw in to the backplate, I dont know why. The cables on the included fans arent very long either. I didnt bother to plug them into the CPU block I just plugged them into the fan controller on the case. Some people have issues with plugging them into the CPU block, plus that gives it a messier look.

Overall its not bad though.
