Sup torqueroll! I love the 90 degree look as well. smile.gif Yes! You can see it spin and spin and spin. It's quite nice actually.

Yes I used the EK UNI 120mm plate to mount the pump to the radiator and it's perfect. It's weird that the pump is only being hold on by two screws, but it's so firm and solid I'm not going to complain. thumb.gif

This is an Alphacool UT60 240mm so it's a 60mm thick radiator. smile.gif

Thanks for the reply. I just ordered the Alphacool 45mm rad for my build. I may try to do push/pull.

It would actually help. A thin rad in push/pull config will most likely outperform my push config 60mm. Granted, these are 1150 RPM fans so they're not really dissipating *that much heat. In any case, lookin' forward to seeini' it completed. smile.gif

I can't wait either. I was going to go with the 60mm, but I though I might run out of room doing push/pull and wouldn't be able to fit all the cables through the mobo holes.

I actually measured it out and almost bought the 80mm radiator, but then found out it would completely cover the mobo cutout! So... there goes that idea haha. I could've forced the cables under the GPU or something. Either way, it's lookin' fantastic already!
