Looks OK to me. Not sure I like the case at an angle like that, but meh, that's just me. Otherwise it looks fine. The really important question though, is what kind of temps are you getting..?

temps are idle 29-30 max load was 42c, the case has to be angled right now because the shelf has a lip on it so i wont be able to open the door, i am going to cut the lip soon.

I have that EXACT case and I plan on installing WC soon. Was it a cramped install or did you have enough room in there? Also, with that kind of shelving unit, you can fix the door problem by placing the PC on a piece of 3/4" plywood. It should clear that lip then.

i didnt even think of the plywood, thats a good idea. It isnt that cramped. no way will the radiators fit in there though. my pump and res fit pretty good, there would be even more room if i had a 5.25 drive bay res and a pump that didnt have to be directly attached to the pump.

edit: i only had to drill 1 hole for tubing, the rest went in through empty slots in the case where a pci device would go.

Sweet. Here's a link to my current WC project. I will update it more this evening when I get home with pics of my current parts and such. It's kind of a dual project. I am going from air to water and from AGP to SLi PCI-e. Should be fun. I just need a few more parts and I can begin the WC part of it. I only have the new Mobo for the PCI-e conversion part and I really want to get the water going first while I wait for the new nVidia cards to come out.

Hold on big fella--step away from the saw!

I was about to make a random comment about how you must be a Costco fan too, since I think I have the same shelving unit--cheap, sturdy and nice (from China, the rising economic force)

Anyway, if you do have the same unit, all you have to do is flip the shelf, and the lip will be on the bottom, and you'll have a nice flat surface!

I hope I caught you in time, because that lip is important structurally...

Thanks for the pics, and the info on your experience and temps.

Where'd you get your rack from again? I have a similar one that I got a while back from a foodservice warehouse cleanout.
