Thanks a lot for the answers thus far, as well as the patients. I have an IT background, but I have not done case or serious cooling/overclocking modding since my old K6 system a lifetime ago

Tough180SX, I was looking over your link with the build you are currently running, and this im sure is a REALLY stupid question, but how did you mount that MCR vertically there, and are you still able to use the slot for optical drivers or whatnot? Also, what do you recommend using to cover drilled edges to keep potential cuts to a minimum?

Also, I used http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/Produc...5&ID=1640#Tab0 in my old 3/8 loop (VERY basic water system), is there something of this nature you can recommend for 1/2ID systems?
No problem!

As for the rad thats vertical, I used some basic L-brackets I got from the local hardware store from here. The screws and holes that I used to mount it are under the plastic top cover on top of the case so there are no problems!

As for your cooling system, I never recommend kits if possible. Each kit has good and bad parts so it is easier to piece it together yourself. If I had to choose a kit, here are some possible choices:
Swiftech Ultima
Petra's Tech CoolKit Elite
* If you go with one, shop around for the best price.

PS: Don't ever buy anything Thermaltake again! =P

There's roughly 4.5" from the top of the case to the top of the mobo. The Monsta is over 4" thick, so there may be enough room to mount it, good luck getting fans on it. I'm going with a Feser X-Changer triple with 6 120x20mm Loons in push/pull.

Has anyone had a cooler back plate short out the mobo?

question; If I buy this case, is there anything that I should get? Are there any optional fan areas, where I can add a fan?

and how well could this cool my gpu over an antec 900?

edit: and would you guys consider getting things like a fan controller, etc.?

There's room to add a 120mm fan in the drive bay. I ordered a blue one to mount between my dvd drive & my fan controller, I'll have to make a bracket for it.

I ordered this fan controller, it has enough wattage to push the big 230mm fans.

I doubt you'll see a big improvement over your 900 if you have your 900's fans set up right & have good wire management.

Maybe my link didn't go where I thought it did, or perhaps you didn't actually go there, I did not, nor will I EVER have, a prebuilt water system (made that mistake 3-4 years ago, never again), that was an inline temp guage. There used to be a excellent shop local to me who dealt in all aftermarket cooling, that was all they did, and he recommended that part to me, and it has worked well. Do you know of one that support 1/2 ID tubing, or maybe a bay mount one that isn't too flashy, just so I have an live water temp.

Also, with where your pump is located, did you saw off the bottom of the HDD rack? If so, what did you cover the bottom with to remove the sharp edge problem. Also, with your vertical rad, was/is it very difficult to get optical drives in the front, I have 2 opticals and a sata hot swap rack which I use religiously, and I do not want to lose.

Follow up on http://www.frozencpu.com/products/87...?tl=g30c95s160 in the Specs section, it says to not mount it with the nozzles facing down because of air accumulation, that makes sense, but wouldn't all radiators have this risk? I assume it i nothing to worry about, but I wanted a second opinion.

Ive got my pump in the same place as touge without removing the bottom half of the HDD cage, jsut passing the tubing through the holes (1/2" ID just fits though)

Ive no pics of it finished yet as waiting on one more part thatll be here next week then ill thow up a bunch of them.

How easily and how cleanly can the HAF 932 be painted matte black without taking the whole thing apart i.e. rivets.

From what I've seen very easily since its a large case, so you won't have to worry about painting cramped spaces. I'm about to do the same and it looks billions of times easier than painting my CM 690 or Antec 900

I actually started with the Swiftech kit. All I am still using from it is the rad and pump. You will not be able to use any of the 5 1/4" drive bays with a rad in the same place as my GPU loop one.

I did saw off the bottom of my hard drive cage but that is because there are two pumps down there. Like Bio said, the tubing will fit through the holes with just one pump, that's how I used to have it with one loop.

As for the mounting of the rad, I did have a problem getting the air out but it did not affect temps. My whole computer is getting rebuilt right now with a new case so no more worries from me. Just as an idea, the rad that is upside down is the GPU/NB loop. I had two 4870x2's and my Bloodrage NB on there and my temps on my GPU's didn't break 50C at full load while folding or running benchmark/stress tests.

Your exactly right. Mine is sawed off because I have two pumps down there. I had it the same as you when I was running one loop.

Look at my build log. I painted mine without deriveting and it turned out good. Just be careful with runs on the tight spots.

I've just found out that Chilledpc.co.uk are based about 5 minutes away from my house

With my HAF arriving early next week it may very well end up with a black powder coat too
