I wouldn't paint it.
4RTEX, even not having this case, i was studying the possibilities of install a full custom water cooling it the FPS case.
Considering that the GFX will have a full waterblock, and normally good waterblocks like EKWB, are way thinner than the stock coolers.
So, the bottom can fit a 1x240mm slim radiator, like the magicool G2, that is only 27mm thick.
The top of the case can also fit the same 1x240mm radiator, just need to know the high clearance between the PSU and the top of the case.
The space between the mobo and the PSU can fit a tube Reservoir/Pump combo.
So, i think that the FPS case can handle a 2x240mm full custom WC system, to cool the CPU and the GPU very well
.


That's about on par with how I look at the case. Honestly, if you did it right you could probably fit 3x240mm worth of rads in there with this side bracket. If I ever get my hands on one of these, I'll have a heyday with the thing...

Every opinions counts and I consider every input I'm given.thumb.gif

The top will fit 27mm rad and that's it - that's the space between top and psu plug. It would have to be running with 1 fan there, unless I start thinking of going to SFX support for extra space. I would recommend max 140mm x 37mm rad at the top where my H80i used to be.

The bottom will do what you are saying but actually a bit more. GPU water block makes the card 1 slot (correct me if I'm wrong), so you would be looking at extra 12mm I think. It would make this space at the bottom about 65mm.

I like it unpainted. I might even open up that side with a window or whatnot to show it off.
post #154 of 542
I'm a fan of the unpainted too.. It's just that little extra to match the front handle/stand, and with it painted I feel like it would make the interior too bland with the straight darkness.

It provides a nice contrast. thumb.gif

Well there's the end all. As we all know, Wu-Tang clan ain't nuthin' to fugg with. /EOT biggrin.gif

I'd like to clarify that when I say painted, I mean painted in an accent color, similar to how I recommended painting the band on the front. Preferably, they'd be the same color, like a white or blue, and the rest of the case would be painted to contrast well with that.

So, 1x140mm on top instead of 1x240mm rad.
And yes, thin water blocks normally makes the card 1xslot clearence, giving more space for a ticker radiator.
And @timerwin63 said right: i totally forgot about the side bracklet radiator! Imagine, 2x240mm + 1x140mm radiator! That's more than enough to run a 4790k massively overclocked + GPU high overclock AND maintein the fans under 900rpm for extremely silence operation, plus low temperatures.
Really amazing case.

I'm working on possibility of selling this case through a computer shop. Fingers crossed they take me on board wink.gif

If this current case meets its destiny, I will be looking at designing exactly what you described - FPS-CASE0
