What do you guys think about the Armor LCS VE2000BWS? http://www.thermaltake.com/product/C.../ve2000bws.asp
Does it affect the cooling since the radiator is mounted inside? any temperatures improvements

You'd be much better off just getting the regular Armor and using a custom water setup.

They have a saying in the PC community, "If it's water and has "Thermaltake" anywhere on it, it's crap in a box."

Completely disregard whether or not the radiator being mounted inside is an issue for ambient temperatures. That's the least of your concern.

If you buy that case, your MAJOR concern will be:
How long until there's a bog in my loop and my processor starts idling at 75c?

I sure hope this water block stays together so I don't spill liquid all over my system.

Are my ears bleeding? This pump is loud.

Thermaltake = Good brand for cases, power supplies and some CPU heatsinks.

Thermaltake Water Cooling = Joke of community.

I personally like this gem on Thermaltake's website-
"Utilize thermal concept of automobile and place radiator in front of computer chassis"

Yeah, because automobiles stay on top of a desk.

I hope they realize the point of automobiles having radiators in front of the chassis is because when you're moving FORWARD, getting frontal velocity, air can get pulled in from the front. It's called PHYSICS. Unless your PC has a 220 horsepower V6 engine, a driveshaft, and you plan on putting it on the freeway and using it while it drives at speeds of 45 mph or faster, I really FAIL to see how having a radiator at the front will mean better cooling than it being mounted in the back or outside or on your head attached to a sun visor.

Oh and I like how they claim that water block is "second to none". I'm sure D-tek Customs and Swiftech agree.

At least they have a warning at the bottom to not drink anti-freeze.
