You mean the 5.25in bay tool-less button doodads? Throwing white in there might look alright but here is an idea... take the holders off, take them apart and just paint the buttons themselves red leaving the main body black - that would look pretty cool with your Black/Red scheme you have going. I'm having a hard time seeing white mixed in there but hey - it is your build

I think light blue, dark blue and gray highlights on black with your case would have looked incredible to go with that P7 board of yours.

Way ahead of you about 15 posts ago . Yeah I saw that but you know, I'm happy with my custom window. In your case with the custom two-tone at the CD bays and stuff, I could totally see this window being a quick and easy upgrade to consider. Like Paraleyes said to me, buy two (so both sides match) and the just put something behind the window on the motherboard side panel (among many other nice ideas which I know would consume me hahaha)

Question to ALL water cooling people here.

I have heard something argued for a long time, but no one gives a **REASON** why one way is better, or does it even really matter.

Where in the loop should the res be, and most importantly WHY? Everyone says one way or another is better, and when asked the answer I get is a couple variations of 2 answers 1 - "Because it is better" wow, that helps, or 2 - "Think about it nub, it is obvious" still no WHY.

Can the more serious water people give me a solid reason why please, or tell me it is preference and really does not change that much.

Thank you so much guys.


i know my way around a water loop as some of you know, and I haven't personally seen a major difference, infact my current setup does NOT have a dedicated res, just a little like 6oz thing on top of my pump.

Indeed you did. I missed that one, this thread goes soo fast. Also saw your comments and yes I like the original HAF922 window version as well as the way you did your MOD cause it does keep the design of the case flowing better.

Have you thought about placing a 120mm fan on the lower section of your window mod?

I have my res right before my pump for the following reasons:

It makes it easier to prime the system because you should never run your pump dry and having my reservoir right in front of the pump made this process super easy.

Position wise it just worked out best that way - does the reservoir HAVE to be in front of the pump - no probably not.

Making sure I always have a nice supply of water right at the intake on the pump is really my main reason to have it where it is.
