The part that I mean is pointed out by the red arrows: Help? (Click to show)

why dont you use some black or white plastidip on the yellow?

the spray is non-conductive so it shouldnt mess up anything smile.gif and if you go for white you could also use it on the mesh in the front of the case

whats the thickness of the bottom rad btw?

to OP great nice clean build, I got the same case and shall be modding it soon enough.

if I could make one recommendation, the hose to the top rad. I would switch the hose so they weren't overlapping.

the slight kink/bend makes it look unbalanced.




or if you ever felt like it add a 140 rad for rear exhaust so it went gpu block - 140rad -360 rad - block

this is my plan tbh

Hmm that is a great idea! I'll order a can tomorow.

It is a 240x60mm Alphacool radiator. The top one is a 360x60mm XSPC radiator.

That was my original plan, but Highflow deleverd the wrong fittings (a 45 degree instead of 90 degree) and had to wait 3 weeks to get the 90 degree one. This is a quite solid solution until I get the 90 degree fitting, there aren't any kinks at all.

A 360x60mm radiator plus a 240x60mm radiator already is quite a overkill for two or even three components, so why would I ever add an extra 140mm radiator? It will destroy the clean look as well.

I see.

the only reason I mentioned the extra rad was to fill the space at the rear exhaust, there is a rather large gap there.

and it actually looks decent from seeing everyones rigs that have done it.

ill shut up now, nice build congrats!

You could add low speed fans just to keep fresh airflow.
