weirdly enough, i think the yellow wires of the PSU compliment the loop very well.
so i guess that i shouldn't get a rad that get near the 286 mm of the RX 240. (which is why it's so tempting to get the monsta 240 which is 279mm long but it has top and bottom plugs which add to that)
really liked your idea of the stealth dual bay res, makes it very clean with the front panel and the controller.
i have thought of maybe getting one of those xflow 120 or multi-port rads for the back whit would make a cleaner look if i'd manage to connect the top rad to it with a short and clean connection. (the real question is weather it's worth to get a 280 rad for that or just use a thin 360 one, with creative mounting, instead of the two top and rear rads)
and the controller IMO really sines if you have at one bitfenix LED fan to create some light or glow effect and having the ability to turn it on or off at a whim.
the only problem i see with your airflow setup is that it would quickly suck a noticeable amount of dust which would mean that you'd have to at some point (which would come sooner with that negative pressure) to tare down the loop to dust it.
yeah, the NZXT sleeved LEDs can do a lot for a rig to have a nice glow. (plus no ugly inverter) i actually consider having RED LEDs on the CPU block (xspc raystrorm) and pump top (if i'll have it) and having white NZXT sleeved kit. (also clear tubing with red dye) is it a good idea or should i consider going red lighting? (and i find it very annoying that for some unknown reason blue is the easiest lighting and scheme to do and red is quite difficult
i'm now really considering doing a similar tube routing like you've done but maybe having a 45 angle on the gpu block and from that to the top m5f block (but the angle fitting wouldn't be directly facing the block but instead to the right and maybe creating a nice looking curve effect like some do)
also, are those extensions or custom sleeved cables? (and thank you for doing the measurements
. i suspect that the 279mm length spec is true but the height of the G1/4 plugs is the only unknown thing so by only measuring these might suffice)
This should totally be the spec to measure cases (instead of all the full/mid tower thingy)
