Nearly done. I just need a new pump top and compression fitting. It's my first water cooled rig and it surely wasn't easy but I loved it smile.gif

Sorry for the blurry picture. I took it late last night and my hands were shaking (nerve damage)

Really nice looking. Well done!

Ive been thinking about giving the rigid tubing a whirl at some point. It really looks cool.

Thanks!

It will not fit. Mine is a tight fit with the XT45. I would recommend that. Using 1400rpm fans and below there is not a significant difference in cooling capability. The XT45 does extremely well...

Also, I think you would want the AF fans for the front. There isn't enough restriction in my opinion with the front panel on that you would need the SP fans. They really are for radiators only as far as I know.

I could have wired up an esata at the back, but that's just it, at the back. I wanted some free hot swap bays because from time to time I want to reformat a drive or see whats on an old drive of mine that I have laying around, trouble shoot a friends drive, etc. Sure, I could pull out my external caddie that I already have, but I would have to climb behind my case, plug it in, pull out a power cord, I'm lazy that way. I did however decide today to forgo the optical drive. I was even looking at rigging up another full face plate cover mod for a slot load drive but in the end, why? I have a few games lying around on disc, an odd music CD to rip or an occasional optical disc to burn but I can do that easy enough on an external USB optical drive....that only takes one plug, and its on the front so not as much work.

Thanks for the fan recommendation. I think I'll stick with my AF fans.

Anyone have experience with an Asrock board and a push/pull config? It's looking like my setup is going to be 90mm thick, and that seems to be too tight according to this. Any ideas?

So I was ripping my fans of my radiator last night to finish up their sleeving (which is done btw stay tuned for epic photo OP). And as I was doing this on my top rad, I noticed...something dissappointing. I know this has come up before, and I think I'm going to now purchase a demiflex filter for the up top radiator. @CorsairGeorge a while ago asked why some of us users weren't satisfied with the top mesh. Well I guess I would fall into that category now and I will show why. I would label myself as sort of an extreme user with 6 fans P/P up top on my radiator running anywhere from 900-1800 RPM on those fans. Here are some results after a month or two.

Preface: I know I'm running a 30 FPI rad which will accumulate dust faster, and for the average user the mesh top is probably fine. I'm not sure what the reasoning is for the finer filters on the PSU and front panel but not the top but it is obvious it makes a difference. Again, I think for the average user the dust filter is fine, but if corsair wants to appeal to us extreme users they might want to up the filter screens a bit more tongue.gif.

Here is the radiator. Clearly dust can be seen in the non deadzones of the fan.


Here is the filter, I know the picture isn't good but you can see there is some dust filtering but still not enough for effective dust filtering.



I still love the computer case I got an awesome deal on it so I'm not complaining, but I wanted to share with you guys some real world results about the top filter.

PS: again, stay tuned for pictures I just need a cloudy day and there should be a lot!

Noticed that on mine as well and on an impulse, i purchased the demciflex filter kit for the 750D
