Since I am in South Korea I have two options which is the one wc company here or shipping. Either way they work out to about the same but it's def a bit more expensive then if I lived in the states. I am looking at the white Nemesis 480GTX but the cost is what turns me off as I could get 2x EK 480 PE's for not much more. Nemesis 480GTS is same price as the EK's but the flow restriction tells me no don't do that. Do I grab one 480GTX or 2 EK's or 2GTS's or 1EK and 1GTS? I have Nb-eloop b12-3 that will be used on them. Opinions please, thanks!

Any reason to have the top pushing air out? Since there are dust filters...

I Love the PE rads, and they perform well. The fatty Nemesis would probably perform better single rad vs single rad, but three of them would be more than just a little overkill. Three 480PEs will likely get you close to, or the exact same temperatures, due mostly to the nature of the overkill. Also clearance above VGA bridges makes fat boy rads in the top a bit of a pain...look at Chiobe's or wermad's builds to see what I am talking about. Not that it cant be done, just that room to work gets eaten up quickly. So there are benefits to each. (IMO) If you are not doing more than one or two GPUs in a loop, there is no need to pick a rad based on metrics other than restriction and aesthetics. If you are running a 5960x at 1.4V and 4x Fermi GPUs or 4x 290x, then you might start looking at performance.

All rads intake, and use front and rear for exhaust. Negative pressure bad... m kay. Makes much dust.

Can you guys give some temps and overclocks with these monstas please. These rads today are giving great performance and temps so I just don't see the need for these massive setups. I have modest 4.3 on a 3930k and 2 670s oc'd and I'm barely hitting 73-75 with just 2 SLIM 360s. Im not knocking your radiators, I'm really asking where it benefits your rig personally. Or is it just for overkill/aesthetics (which is totally fine)

Silence is priceless. A Monsta480 with some 800 RPM fans vs a 240 with push/pull deltas may (in theory) perform similar in temps, but which one would you rather sit next to? Its not raw temps alone that need to be taken into consideration when deciding on rads.

Note: I am not using fattys, I am on EK PE rads with fans at 1000 RPM

Edit: it looks like the hole spacing is 1" inch apart arranged in a square. Haven't found anything that's close online yet.

Apollo Casters. I really search and found they make a lockable pin style caster with a 1" x 1" plate. Ordered 4 (@$18) and they work PERFECT! Screw holes mounted up exactly with the case.

All of my rads are push mode using Gentle Typhoon AP15-GTs. I have the fans paired (12 fans) to 6 2fan connectors and hooked to a NZXT 6 Channel Fan controller.

Its pretty sturdy tbh.

These pics have got me sold on this case now. + rep

I wish thermaltake would ship review units to the top youtubers and increase the visibility.

With this case, positive is recommended if plausible. Especially if you have rads under the mb b tray.
