I think I've seen pictures of your Sniper with the internal radiator installed, but I can't find them anymore... If I remember right, you had both the radiator and the fans inside, correct?
I'm wondering if it's a good idea to put the fans on the outside (in the handle area) and get a thicker (50m) radiator instead of using one that's only 30mm. Advice I've been given on other boards say that a single 2x120 30mm radiator isn't enough to keep two GPUs (or even an i7 and NB) as cool as they need to be.
Has anyone tried to fit a 3x120 inside the Sniper? I really, really don't want to run anything outside the case, but I've been playing around with overclocking the i7 now and water cooling it is now something I'd like to entertain as well.
The thing is, I only game about 20% of the time, and general light usage (e-mail, web, photos) about 30%. The other 50% of the time I'm doing CPU intensive stuff like rendering images in Terragen, POV-Ray, etc. I konw a single 2x120 radiator won't be able to handle both GPU's and the CPU, so I'm looking for my best options considering I want to keep everything inside the case (including the handle area
