Oh and one more thing don't get suckered by the XXX and Extreme versions of the XFX 5770. You can use MSI Afterbuner to overclock the stock 5770 to 1030/1350 quite easily. They don't run stable much higher than that anyway so why pay money for something you can get for free?

So, did I miss something or is what I'm about to ask part of how you did the fan switch? Or was it you?
I put one of these switches in, the cathode kits usually come with a round switch, I'm not a fan of them visually..

All you need to do is measure the size off and dremel a hole the size of the switch and it pretty much snaps into place and sits flush with the panel. Pics below..

Anyway, my question is, have you told us how you've connected the side panel fans into what looks to be the back of the case? If you have, please link me to where you posted it.
Basically I have two 3 pin fan extensions running off a molex behind the RH side panel, they come out the rear hole behind the psu. Since those photos were taken I have tidied things up a bit with some braiding as shown below, you can also see how I have kept the cables tidy on the side panel also...

Then, do they sell a different model in Scotland or did you not have a hard time getting the Corsair pump mounted letters up in this case? Ok, I remember getting it that way but the tubing definitly hit the side fans. So, what'd you do?
It was a little tight at first but a flexed them a little bit and they seemed to soften a touch which has taken any major tension out of them. They sit just shy of the fans when the side panel is attached give or take a mm or 2, so a close but perfect fit.. tried to show in a photo but hard to get an angle to show their position...

Thanks! I like photography, but only got a small camera now (DSLR got stolen so to speak) so I have one of these, with the flash off on a little tripod, takes a nice longer shutter speed to get the shots with the lights up


I think that answers all the questions so far

Ok, I'm re-posting this. Found it last night befor I crashed-out.
Now, this thing is a copy of their Hyper 212.. I guess; But They've Re-designed
it with '6' copper tubes, what he says in this. If you guys can make out any more of what this guy says. A little hard to understand him.
Sorry about the link, didn't know how to Embed the video or it wouldn't work for me maybe. i think I just don't know how to do it. Anyway, ck it out.......

That’s pretty clean, Repton.

But you know you can tap a CCFL (or any 12V power source) to the LED switch so that one switch toggles all the lighting. Here’s the link to the discussion.

The V6-GT>>YouTube- CeBIT 2010 : Rev up your cooling with the Cooler Master V6GT
Glad he asked about the tilted scales. Not that I am switching back to air cooling, but if i came across one I might have assumed a possible defect. Well, as I said before, air cooling heat sinks seem to be at its highest efficiency with the Hyper 212+ design as the foundation. Smaller, more detailed, specifications will now be the biggest differences between each model, IMO.

@Repton: Good stuff bro. I like the custom switch you put in the front. BTW I think we've got the same cold cathode LED. Mine looks just like the one you're using (unless they all look like that).

I still need to get myself a false floor to cover up the cables that I cannot hide. I saw the video of the CM HAF with a false floor (discussed earlier; stolen from OCN members) and I like the idea of not covering the PSU completely.

Nice install on that switch Repton, but you'll get much better airflow with that fan if you remove the drive bay shields
