At the moment, even with the solid window and case closed up, the entire system is running quite nice and cool. The NB temp gets up into the low 40s but that is nothing a little spot fan couldn't take care of. I think I'll stick with the solid window for now but when I start looking at overclocking, that is where I may need to add some extra air oomph across the Memory, MOSFETs and Chipset heatsinks.

More pics as requested:

cpu/mosfet


I wedged the reservoir under the video card to stop it from bending under the weight of the waterblock.


Coolermaster R4 120mm fans on the radiator needed to be slowed down with a fan controller because they vibrate like crazy full speed even with a rubber gasket. Also the 90cfm/19dba is a lie. They are more like 30-35 dba. Side note: The Thermalright X-silent 140mm fan really is inaudible and works great as an added intake.


Radiator fans on 1 controller nob and the cathode switch mounted in a CD bay cover

pics w/ side panel are on page 288 for those who missed it.

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.
I put my res right before the pump also for the same reasons as HAFenvy. Just makes it easier to fill

I'm working on my first loop right now and like they said, it makes it easier to start off cause you don't want to run the pump dry. Another way I look at it (maybe wrong) but I will have my res above my pump, so the way I see it is having gravity pull the water down towards the pump can't hurt it. Also, if the res was right after the pump, think about filling up a pool, water may not flow out with as much pressure as it went into it with, while having the res before the pump is like having the garden hose go through a lot (block & rad) to fill up the res, while the pump is right there to pull water from the res.

This is how I logic'ed it out lol. Someone correct me if I'm wrong

I own that book too. So yeah, same page here!

Furthermore, if you are concerned about the position of the res within the case, it makes no difference whatsoever where it is located. You can fill a res located at the bottom of a case just the same as one at the highest point of the case just as long as the only part of the loop open to air is the res you use to fill the loop. See below, my restop/pump is located on the bottom of my case and the lowest part of the loop and I filled the system completely just as so. I'm not sure if that was even part of your question, but it was a huge concern of mine when it came time to fill my 1st loop here.

I wish the 932 could have had a larger window on the side. I've always wanted to be able to see my parts, so logically, I went and got a HAF 932, of course.

Well you know what needs to be done... get cutting.

Hehe, my parents were already annoyed that I painted the interior, plus I don't have a dremel or easy access to the clear material, which I think most people use Acrylic.

I actually used Lexan for mine (got it cheap) but you can get small sheets of Acrylic and Lexan plastic at Home Depot and other hardware stores

I didn't figure it mattered THAT much, but thanks for all the input on it. I ahve just ehard some people be VERY adamant about it from time to time, so I figured it couldn't hurt to ask.

New Cable routing from me.Bit of an upgrade this week hopefully in the form of a new GFX card (Sapphire 5850),fan controller (Scythe Kaze Master), Vogel's wall mount for the big screen so I can finally use both monitors.I'm just waiting for the 5850 to come into stock and I'll go get the rest of the stuff then
