This is not a dumb question at all.
Do you want to know if you are able to take the rig on the plane?
I can confirm that with the most airlines (Qatar, Lufthansa, Condor, Cathay Pacific) this is the case.

Does that help?

The best that I know is that you can take one in your regular luggage. We (my girlfriend and I) did that when we moved her PC over. Clothes were put around it as packaging and in the hand luggage.

Well mate thats an easy one.

If you may just tell me the hardware your would like to install and i´ll be happy
to give you my opinion about it.
But my real answer if you dont have any clues wich one to choose is that you decide on your personal style of asthetic. That depends on the room your monitor, mouse ect.

To tell you my experience with flying.
My family lives in Minnesota near Minneapolis so i try to be there once every couple years and normaly i take my pc with me.
In the time before my VULCAN i had a nonbrand case near the size of an VULCAN. I transported it as handluggage but had to pay a small fee becouse it was slightly over the allowed weight. The important thing is that is has the correct measures for the luggage space inside the plane and my experience on that is that they allow it (2 times tested)

Have a nice day!

Hopefully this quick photo edit will help..

You should get slightly better flow within the closed loop. Can't guarantee better temps, but there's potential for a few degree temp drop, and less restriction within the loop.

Hope this helps..

Wow, bro thanks for the advice!
I will try that this weekend!

I originally did not do it since i thought that the hoses would touch my video card, but i see that maybe they wont after all

Thanks for the advice!

If you get a non modular, you will have wires all over the place, and most likely have a hard time with cable management. The case will fit a ATX power supply with no problems, but you are limited to how many wires you can shove behind the motherboard tray. You will most likely have to force all the cables into the front 120mm fan area.

Bro, yes, those are the temps i am getting, i have two fans (push/pull) configuration.

I actually made the same question in another forum.

I think that is the best performance it can get. Can you post a print screen of the HWTemp software showing the temps you are getting?

Guys, i have a question and there is no better place to ask in the world than here...

Could any of you that have painted it give me some guidance as what do i need to paint it (type of paint, what areas are painted with what, etc)?
