Corsair's website has 540 parts for sale, but they only show parts for the black 540, not the white (which I have) or silver.

I finally got the right measurements smile.gif
I tested it with carton if it fits.
but see yourself smile.gif

of course the front will also be covered.

As material i use this :


its white tinted plexiglass. the light can shine trough it a bit so it will glow nicely at the end.

My two ccfl's and the converter will be changed to some high density flexlights. the flexlight will be blue or white and be under the cover.
They will be connected to my fan controller so i can control the brightness and can turn them off if needed.

The cages on the bottom should still be usable. I hope that the harddrives wont get too hot, but if so ill just put them in the back of the case and mount a little fan to exhaust the warm air from the case.
Hope you like it biggrin.gif

So, I got most of my new stuff in today. It will be interesting to see how that 295X2 fits with regards to the space available for the front radiator. The specs say the length is 12.09 inches, I started putting together a list of water cooling parts and came up with what someone else suggested. The Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 Full Copper Dual 120mm Radiator for the top and the XT45 Triple for the top. Is there a recommended size on G 1/4 barbs ID/OD? What would be a good pump/res combo (money doesn't matter). Sorry for all the questions as this is my first adventure under water.

I may not even attempt to try and cover the case until college in the fall starts up.
Still trying to decide between thin metal that can easily be mounted within, or wood to go with a stained look.

Where? All I can find is the top grill for $10. Have a link for more parts?

As long as it isn't smaller than 1/4 any tubing will work just fine. The differences between 1/4 and 1/2 are extremely minimal in flow and temps. Not to mention with the tight spaces you are going to be working with, the thinner tubing will work better because it's easieir to work with. My primochill 3/8x5/8 works really well for bending. I assume you are going to be picking up the aqua computer 295x2 block? That thing looks sexy. After seeing that I was half tempted to sell both my rigs and get an x79 gene with dual 295x x2's and have the ultimate mini powerhouse.

Thank you!

Know if they have the front panel available anywhere? The part where the 5.25" bays are not the grill side.
