Brilliant plan, with the side mounted 280, and having the reservoir fitted through the shelf.

Back in Town after finished job few days early biggrin.gif
Thanks for encouragements fellas thumb.gif
Great to see progress on everyone else's build too - great stuff wink.gif
Had heaps of ideas to try out while thinking about the build while away so got to trying some fitting last night.

Plonked in a spankin' new AX1200 - if it ain't broke don't change it, legendary PSU thumbsupsmiley.png
and you can see I temp fitted 3 more E-Loops with their clear shrouds in place.



I put the PSU in first because I wasn't sure what would / will end up in the lower 3 Flexi-Bays
So what's behind that bloody cover plate that seems to just shoved there - what's he hiding questionmark.gifquestionmark.gif
Well yes - you can see a tube res sticking up so it would be a safe guess that other stuffs are there also.

Blue-ray, Bay-Res which will end up with lighting (white or red ??) and Aquaero 5 is what you can see from the front biggrin.gif
Pity the drive tray copped some nasty scratches - will try to polish out later, but unlikely redface.gif



And on the inside there's a couple of D5 pumps - 1 x AquaComputer for some monitoring and 1 x Swiftech MCP655
They're mounted on an EK Dual Loop top but running them in series.
Pump placement was tricky and is (again) just plonked in until I make a bracket during the "construction" part of the build (still in mock up and ideas atm)
Had to leave enough room for both the PSU cabling and the Blu-ray cables to fit.
The end result is best I could have hoped for tongue.gif




and to round off this update, some hardline plumbing....
The old school way tongue.gif
Reminds me of headers in the engine bay thumbsupsmiley.png

Looking great! What are those clear "shrouds" between the fans and rad? What do they do?

Cause that's the best way to do it, man smile.gif Especially on a case with plenty of rear ventilation, all you need is intake to have fresh air from outside the case flowing through the case and creating enough positive pressure to help minimize dust but to also force the air out the back. In a decently ventilated case, all you need is intake for the best airflow and then all of that intake will facilitate more than enough passive exhaust out the ventilated back. He could get away with no exhaust at all, honestly, but like me and most others, he put a single exhaust at the back just because it makes use feel better and it looks good, plus the back panel is the one panel that's dedicated for exhaust (fans intake from front, top, and bottom and all of that air naturally heads for where it can escape, which is the vented rear panel), so you wouldn't want to put an intake there working against the rest of the fans. Since the entire rear panel is vented, the rear exhaust isn't really doing a whole lot, but it might help a bit in facilitating the exhaust.

The E-Loop series are not designed for use as pullers - they make a horrible noise when close up against anything in pull mode.
But put some air space between the fan and rad and they're all apples

Exactly this ^ and so well explained. +1 for you sir thumb.gif
Basically you want all your rads to have cool fresh air blowing / pulling through them.
If the case has adequate ventilation - this is the way to go for best possible temps in your loop.
