I would have gone with the new Danger Den Fatboy fittings as they restrict flow less than the Dteks. Thats about all I would change really.

Where do you plan to put that monster of a rad?

Good question bro I was hoping you guys have some suggestions... I was thinking of cutting out 3 holes on top of the case for 120mm fans, then install fans inside the rig (below holes) and rad right on top of it. there is enough room above the psu for fans, but not the rad

/off topic: I was intrigued by the title WC parts... the second thing that came to me was water cooling, the first was .... what the heck is a toilet thread doing on OCN?

Otherwise nice good luck with the setup, I wish you at least 4GHz

You are right.... I never thought of that Here in the United States we don't use this form of abbreviation (WC), only Europe does. I know it because I'm Ukrainian myself and have been to several countries in Europe. Good Point though!

if you want to use the radiator externally, I wouldn't even cut fan holes on the case. Blowing hot air from inside the case through the radiator will simply push hot air through the radiator. With radiators, you generally want to pull air through them and if possible, cool air. Since it is external just mount the radiator on spacers and the fans on top of the radiator to pull fresh cool air through the radiator and just drill 2 small holes to guide the tubing from the radiator into the case.

You have a point there, I really dont need the hot air inside that case. But I really wanted to make it look clean. What If I create a separator/firewall between the rad and internal components, which would direct the ambient temp air through the front panel without mixing up inside? Let me sketch it out...

you might not have to. you could mount the rad on the rear with Swiftech RadBox MCB-120 Revision 2
that case is tall. i have it in silver. too bad the screws easily strip the holes on it. the panels and my vid card screw holes were stripped.

Also, I think the GTX block had some type of corrosive properties? I think I heard many people replacing the top with an all copper one. Maybe some other people could enlighten us. Any else remember this?

The aluminum top of the swiftech apogee gtx actually does not come in contact with the water. People just switch it over to the copper to be safe. Copper also looks better

The swiftech product that actually caused corrosion was the swiftech stealth v1 (gpu water block) and swiftech tried to pass it off as gunk in the water block.
