I'm going to look into making a 3.5" bracket to mount a hard drive there. Either that or I'll mount the one HDD that I plan on putting in my system in a 3.5" to 5.25" adapter and put it in the fixed bay. I plan on putting my flow sensor on the pad where you put yours.

Thanks @jacknaylorpe for all of your replies. right now I have my 360 xspc rad mounted right to floor. Once Ac cool rads come in I will use platform should help quiet fans down to.

Is there a way to get another pwm hub? Would like one for each rad.

Sadly no plastic on the inside of the window I was really hoping that there was plastic causing the haziness.

The window on mine is hazy, too. My guess is that the the plexi was either installed before it was properly finished, or it was subjected to a harsh cleaner after assembly (glass/metal cleaners like Windex actually damage plexi very easily). I was thinking about ordering some polish to try to clear it up...

All done!

Now I hear coil whine from my PSU frown.gif Didn't start until after I moved it off the floor back onto the desk. Hopefully it will go away soon.

I have the same problem with my PSU there's no coil whine when you place the PSU with its fan facing upwards but as soon as you put it sideways or fan facing downwards it produces this pretty annoying noise

Ah cool, thanks for tip on sawing, might have to have a look into it! Did you do any hot bending or did you do all the turns with connectors?

Snap! I did the same, best way to go IMO, as I will need the disk space at some point

What rad are you using and what did you use to cut the holes?
