Yes I did do them myself, I used a simple adjustable circle cutter drill bit to do them. They I polished them off with my dremel. I think they turned out great, a little rough but overall pretty good.

Thanks for the input of the Zerex Tyler. Is anyone have a positive yes or no though? Taking apart my block every other month would be sort of a hassle...I will get some more pics up when I have some more time...I am ordering a bunch of stuff guys so look for some surprizes in the next week or two!

Looks great, I have the same case in black and I painted the inside black also. I also changed the standard case LEDs to blue since I have 3 blue bay devices. It looks great in the dark! Btw, if anyone wants blue LEDs to replace case lights or anything similiar, I found these for super cheap! 45 cents and just about ANY color you could imagine (even bicolored). Very easy to swap and they look fantastic. (takes all of 2 minutes) Btw, people also change their cd drive lights and stuff,but I haven't bothered yet. Anyways, great company to deal with. I actually just sent them $2 in the mail and told them to keep the change lol.

No problem, I looked around forever before I finally figured out what size the LEDs in cases were and also a site that will sell them for cheap. All the other places I found were either $6 bucks per LED or you had to special order and they'd only sell by lots of 100. The company in that link are really great to work with and answered my email right away. They also shipped out my LEDs the same day they received my cash in the mail. To clarify for anyone reading this, 3mm is the size you want

To polish and smooth out the inside diameter of the holes I used my dremel with a soft bit it comes with. I'm not sure what it is called, I think just a polishing bit, but it smoothed it out nicely.

Ok guys I was going to save the surprizes for when I actually recieved the items but I figured I may as well give you insight to what's comming anyway. Attached is the rest of the parts I will be getting to complete my rig. There are a bunch of minor things like fans, some fan extender cables, but the big things are my new PSU, my Gskill UTT (BH-5) and my DD pump. These are probably all the parts I will be needing to complete my rig and I should be getting most of them in a week, maybe a little more. I also was looking for those Abit Otes Ramflow things for my RAM because I will most likely be pumping the voltage past 3.5V because of the memory chips, but I couldn't find them seperate from the Fatality mobo so I found an alternate one at Xoxide. It's a little too flashy and big but it will work cooling my RAM.

What does everyone think? Comments please!
And a big thank you to Formed who made that awsome intro picture at the beginning of my first post, everyone take a look!

Lastly can anyone tell me 100% that it's okay to use Zerex with my Storm WB?

Well zero, hopefully you didn't already order that RAM Cooler, why? because you can mod somthing MUCH better, I know you already have the skills to mod, so that isn't the problem, the problem is finding a way to get your fans over your ram, most of the serious people on the fourm about ram cooling use 60mm, 80mm fans and rig it to where it is directly over the ram, thats what I suggest to you, and its alot less costly.

For example, check out this fan: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835150007

Its cheap, and has a pretty good CFM rate, ram manufacturers suggest 10CFM - 15CFM to cool ram, I suggest 20CFM+, I've got a 25CFM fan and it dosen't get warm around my ram whatsoever. Thats just what I suggest, I think bigval and crash do that, but I'm sure they'll suggest that over a crab ram cooler. (I wanted to get the exact same thing, they told me not to)

Ok well I already have a 30CFM 80mm fan that I don't use for anything that I could mount over my RAM somehow... if I can find a way to do that over the RAM cooler I will make my own. Thanks for the suggestion.

Anyone know about the Zerex?

is there a water cooling type o' block for ram?
cuz that would solve some problems

how exactly would someone mod a 80 mm fan to fit over the ram?
just like anchor it blowing on the sticks?
or make some sort of AIT funnel

cuz Ive sorta planned one out and im looking for suggestions

Well, why do they say you can't use Zerex w/ your storm, from what I've read it PREVENTS corrosion, and w/ that distilled water you're going to have to have somthing to keep it from getting dirty (right?). So, if I were in your situation I'd use the zerex. Or somthing like it.
