Thank for your replies guys. Stuff is making allot more sense now smile.gif

So my current plan is 2x Push only UT60 Radiators Pulling air into the case from the outside.
Then a 140mm fan in the back as an exhaust.

How does this sound? smile.gif

Or am I being daft making them push only? Should I go for 2x Push Pulls?

Edit: Fast_Fate, your case is looking amazing so far!

Push/pull does give about 10-30% better performance depending on rads and fans....thumb.gif

There is a comparison of various radiator sandwiches that compares push only against push-pull with the same kit.

Your build is looking really good! Subbed!

Was it easy to make the notches using the dremel?

I was thinking of making a big hole with a drill bit and then using the dremel with a grinding wheel attachment to bore it out a bit.

It was actually really easy - Aluminium is easy to file down
I used a half round file all the way - you need to go pretty much all the way to the bend for clearance of the plugs.
Then smoothed the filing off with the dremel.
Now that you mention the drill bit - that would have been a better first step thumb.gif (less filing to do), then file an dremel to finish.

I just bought a S8 can't wait, the cosmos II looks big but is actually pretty small inside... this looks smaller but has more room! (from images I've seen, never seen it in person).

I'm just moving a system over until I finish paying off school tuition, than I'm going to start building a new PC (current hardware is about two years old, started building just when the gtx 680 came out and it was impossible to find)

Now the only question is.
Asus Rampage IV Extreme Black Edition
or
Asus P9X79-E WS

You can't go wrong there. I'm deciding between the same two boards. I'd probably go AsusP9X79-E WS......unless you want to watercool the board. Then I'd go BE.
