Yea it really opens up the case with that window, and yes grabbing some white u-channel trim off ebay, do you know of a better site to get it from, because I got my black u-channel off someone on Overclock.net before, never ordered it myself.

Yea the HDD cage removal is so much better, Once I put a 140MM THICK Rad in the front in Push/Pull its going to look unreal and function amazingly! The sleeving of the front connectors, I'm just going to make them black and out of the way, this is a client build so there are budget factors, and time factors, so I will make sure you cannot see them that's for sure!...

Although white and blue sleeving would look unreal with the UV coolant, and tubing... thinking.gif (Problem is I want to do everything to make it the best and don't want to blow the budget, as I'm pushing it with the custom loop as is blushsmiley.gif)

Yup that's why I got it, I've always wanted to use the XS-PC res, it's always looked great in pics, as well with the liquid and LED's in the res. It puts a "reason" to look at the front of the case, as well makes use of the 5.25" drive bays. If you are going to have a optical drive you need something else in there cause those just kill the look in every shape and form. This build has requested a Blue Ray drive, so not only does the res bay take away from the focus on that, but your 100% correct, it helps with the tubing routing, spacing and with this small case, I'm going to be using every inch to make it as spacious as I can smile.gif

I am ordering this Rad vs a 120mm rad, the testing of a single 120mm VS 140MM rad is quite astounding in performance, as well this Rad is extra thick for best performance as I was unable to put a dual Rad in this case.

120 vs 140 radiator test



Thank you for the comments, please keep them coming as I will be adding more pics, this weekend and making a big order Sunday wink.gif

Just changed the config a little to replicate this build, I'm going with pastel not UV now and bigger tubing to show the liquid inside smile.gif The fittings/tubing & liquid are the same as this build smile.gif
Note: This is not my build, it's what Im replicating wink.gif

Thank so so much, this is a pretty big Mod for the small case I chose and am really happy with how it is coming, please note the Ice blue pic is not my build, but I'm modeling this after it smile.gif


Because of all the blue and white builds that look good had white backgrounds I decided that this case would look a lot better if the interior was white as well for a cleaner look, as well the blue LED's and blue liquid will really pop off the clean back wink.gif



















The modding of the front for the 140mm thick rad looks perfect wink.gif They shipped me the wrong Rad though they gave me a 120mm instead! Ugh so gotta wait to start assembly until I get the right one, After 4 layers of paint, then 3 layers of clear Lacquer for protection she looks beautiful smile.gif

I'm going to Paint the Rad White as well and the Fans I've chosen are going to really pop off it wink.gif







I chose to go with some Silver Compression fittings, and 5/8th Tube to get the largest diameter in order to reveal the tube and separated liquid (pastel Blue)


















I can't wait to get to start mixing the Mayhems Blue and fill the Loop!

Thanks man These fans just arrived today, 4x's 140mm + 1x 120mm, they are really cool I've never seen them before and are going to go with the build so perfectly, took me a long time to chose these and definitely like my choice, waiting on the Rad (had to RMA from dazmode sent the wrong one) and then the painting of the last parts starts and then assembly this weekend wink.gif

So excited, It has been directly modeled after this build awwe inspiring I can just stare at it... I'm making a smaller compact version but will look very similar once done. (hopefully rolleyes.gif)
This is the build I'm replicating (Click to show)




Here are the fans I got for the build cougar 140's and 120's

They do look fantastic, and against the white they are going to look unreal, something about blue and white that is just pure beauty wink.gif

I have done the majority of the painting and lacquer on the parts, the cspc top came out perfect and so did the GPU and Rad wink.gif

Stay tuned, starting the assembly soon!
