I was thinking about making a black carbon fiber cover for it, and wanted some input from you guys for the following:

1 - I'm going to incorporate a 120mm fan to one end of the enclosure to help keep the pump cool. I was thinking of keeping the end open that butts up against the HDD cage and placing the 120mm fan on the opposite end (facing the power supply) since it is visible. There is a front fan that pulls cool air in as well as a side fan and the pump is directly over the bottom chassis vent grate. The power supply pulls it's own cool air in from under the chassis as well and is exhausted right out the back. I don't think the warmed air exhausting onto the power supply will have an impact. Thoughts?

2 - Should I leave the enclosure solid black carbon fiber or incorporate the ROG logo in red carbon fiber, similar to the drive cage cover shown here:


It's busy enough inside so I don't want to over clutter the build. In your opinion, would the logo add to the aesthetics or detract from the cleanliness?

As always, I appreciate everyone's input and criticisms. In the end, it's my build and I have to look at it everyday, but I want something that others enjoy looking at as much as I do. biggrin.gif

I'd simply hide the ssd you have in the hdd cage in the back of the case, pull out all the hdd trays and move the pump there. Then you'd just have to "continue" the black cover plate you have on the right all the way down and declare victory. The front intake fan would keep the pump cool too.

Oh, and no to the rog logo. That would def make things way too chaotic.

Zoide.

Yes it's done commonly, however you will have better results with your drain port if it's connected to the absolute bottom point in your loop.

For example, if you have a radiator lower than the reservoir, you will be able to drain the loop fine, but water will stay in the bottom radiator.

Interesting thought, but not do-able. There are three other SATA HDDs you can't see. Also this system will be increased to another SSD in the near future. Also, I'd have to move the Res, which isn't possible do to the bay res being used for the CPU. Interesting thought though for a future rendition of this case thumb.gif

EDIT: Actually, I don't think it is. I'm almost sure the build I was looking for had a white case (perhaps a Shinobi XL).

@ TampaChaz, the pump looks like it fits well where it is. I'd perhaps just dress the pump up with a red bitspower kit and clear acrylic top wink.gif

I finished my water cooling a little while ago but now noticed I have a something stuck on my cpu block. I did a proper radiator flush but i guess I didn't get that guy. I'm pretty sure it is just the radiator dirt your supposed to flush out.

Should I be concerned about it? Is it something that requires immediate attention? Could it cause any sort of corrosion? It doesn't really bother me so I was just going to get it out the next time I clean my loop.

Got a pic? Does it look like its disrupting flow? How are your temps?
