I think the 280 rad fit in there so nicely, I just can't wait to see it in action. biggrin.gif

I know what you mean about the plastic, it really was a pain to cut my top panel too. Even on the slowest speed setting, my dremel started to melt it as I was cutting.

Good news on the custom water loop thumb.gif

I have to admit though that after more than 48 hours of loop bleeding I was still unsuccessful to remove the bubbles trapped in the line due to the odd setup I have. I was attempting to modify my Corsair H50 with the 280 rad with no fill port or res. I was essentially trying to create another closed loop system with the H50 pump and 280 radiator but I couldn't for the life of me bleed the loop properly so I got fed up with not having a computer so I put it all back together. I will attempt this again soon when I get some money. and I might just make a real loop out of it.
Meanwhile some pics of my fine work. biggrin.gif
The 280 rad snugly fitting inside the top bezel just as I imagined it. tongue.gif

I used to own an Asus Sabertooth 990FX, I like the sticker so I kept it. lachen.gif

In regards to your temps, Perhaps I will try reseating my unit and see if that helps.

I have two fan controllers because I have 10 fans to individually control and the six fans on my GPU's are by design found on these heatsinks for my GTX480s as they can get really hot on stock.
ARCTIC COOLING Accelero XTREME Plus II

Edit:
The fans on my GPU are controlled via MSI Afterburner. thumb.gif

Also Edit:
For real though, you don't this many fans for good airflow I guess it's more of an E-Peen kinda thing like "Woah that's alot of fans" but it really is overkill and it can be quite loud even at their lowest settings. I did cut a hole in the bottom of my case for that 120mm fan. wink.gif
