Submitted this to PC Wars hoping to get on the "TechSource" Channel. See the link if you have any interest in it. I highly recommend the channel.

More then willing to take some advice on watercooling parts. I tried out the new EK configurator and it is pretty slick.

Original Setup of the computer before modding.




Cutting out the 5.25 drive.






I had to bend out the "ridge" on the back. I knew I was covering it up so I didnt worry about the pliers leaving teeth marks



Creating the PSU cover. I originally used silicone but found some Acrylic Cement later on




Painted the cover black.


Back cover of case installed. Just drilled holes through acryllic piece in areas with existing fastner holes in case structure. Stopped by local hardware store for nut/bolt combos, chamfered the holes for the fastners to sit decently flush.



Finished!....ish...... gotta get that watercooling!

This case is such a pain in the ass. I already regret I went for this surrogate full tower instead of the real deal.

1. 60 mm thick radiator in the top + 25 mm fans = the definition of a tight fit. This will depend on the specific motherboard, but with my Asus P8Z68-M Pro the radiator slides in with literally no gap between the fan and the RAM socket latch. It fits, but you'll be hard pressed to put a sheet of paper between the two. 5 mm more clearance would be a life saver here, and I could put a fan grill and a silicon vibration dampener gasket.
2. With this radiator you can't put the rear 140 mm fan. This really breaks my heart. The 140 mm rear fan won't clear the radiator fan by 2 mm.
2.1. You can put a 120 mm fan, but only if you turn the rad around and put the end with fittings into the 5.25 bay. In which case I wish you luck connecting the tubing. I will attempt it, but I'm not too optimistic.
2.2. Removing the 5.25 bay is a pain as well. I know it's doable, and I also know I can't do it without damaging the case cosmetically too much.

P. S. To be clear, I'm not as much complaining as informing people who want to build a liquid cooling system in this case. And if you have suggestions for the rear fan problem, please do share.

Awesome! Cool idea cross-connecting the PCI-E power.
Aren't those graphics adapters begging for some liquid cooling?

Late comer to this thread --- and late comer to this forum in general!

Seeing how everyone takes out their HDD trays, I'm wondering if anyone is willing to sell me theirs smile.gif

You can maybe get a few bucks for something you have no use for smile.gif

FYI, I live in Canada, I don't mind paying cross boarder shipping from US smile.gif

Thanks in advance!
