This is my setup today, I will be swapping out the EK reservoir for a Danger Den and will be swapping out the Noctua fans for TFC Triebwerk fans ... so stay tuned.

I'm awful at taking pics ... these just don't do it justice.

Those are actually good pics, but... what's wrong with EK's reservoir?

Oh, and don't forget to fill out your system specs in the User CP (link at the top of every page, on the left click Add System). Welcome to the forum!

Nothing is wrong with the EK reservoir, my thinking is that there is plenty of space inside the case next to the m/b to install the DD. The benefit in doing that is 1) decrease the amount of tubing and 2) free up a couple of 5.25 bays. The only negative is that I need to find a good flow meter (the flow meter inside the EK is my favorite part about that reservoir). But is it me or are there just not many good flow meters out there?

Lol sorry man They are getting better with colors, I say another year for quality fans with multi colors.

You can always get what soda480 is switching over over to the TFC Triebwerk fans, they are not white, but they are clear at least. They would be perfect and I would get them if they had a red ends on them.

Very clean setup. Great components in there as well.

Question for you, were did you put your raptors, in the bottom HDD cages?

Since I removed my bottom cage and found out after my build was complete that the raptors do not line up with the quick release rear attachments, I removed two of the rear boards and dremeled out the rear of the HDD case. I am still able to attach the boards if need be for later use, just with a bigger hole in the middle.

Would highly recommend against the TFC Triebwerks, they got one of the WORST ratings in the bit-tech fan round up. They are noisy and need to a fan controller unless you want to be deafened. They are also ridiculously expensive.

Aquacomputer has a good flowmeter; it's basically a Digmesa with reworked internals and casing, and different openings so you can actually use G1/4" fittings/barbs with it. It's not too accurate at lower flowrates but increases in accuracy as you go up (note that if you get it, set it to 158 pulses per litre for software monitoring; minimum flowrate is 40 litres per hour). Plus it looks good and isn't as restrictive as other offerings (and you can run the water either way through, unlike Koolance's meter).

My main concerns with the case that I have been reading about.

1. Power supply alignment and placement issues.
2. Expansion slot alignment issues.
3. Motherboard and alignment (standoff) issues.
4. Sticky Power Button.
5. Hot Swappable and SSD's issues.
6. SATA backplate issues with hard drives (BSOD or faulty backplate's).

Can anyone comment on the following listed above. Oupavoc listed that these were first batch issues and should not be appearing or happening again but posts on Corsair's forum reveals that the first batches are still floating around. Why is there no recall for the faulty first batches that have certain lot codes. I also remember Oupavoc mentioning that NCIX is currently on the 5th batch (as of his post at that date) but I checked the stock quantities and the Toronto Warehouse has roughly 58 in stock and any one of them could be remanants of the first batches even in the Vancouver warehouse.
