The tubes are very stiff, but it will reach and mount there. And you will probably need the fan power extension cables I mentioned above.

Here's what mine looks like:

Edit: Airflow seems fine. 33c idle with all fans directed inwards and a closed chassis isn't hot is it? (22c room temp)

33c idle is fine. Looks good, and your fan orientation makes sense. The side mesh is your exhaust.

I did it the other way round. I have a 200mm fan on the mesh to pull in air and all others are set to exhaust. You may have noticed that I added a push fan to the radiator. More cooling and more blue lights.

Your case just looks astonishing! where did you get the screws to hook up the 2nd fan to the radiator?

I'll try your airflow setup when my 200mm fan arrives, my cpu just went 51c at hottest during stresstest and that was at stock speed so I'm not quite satisfied yet

I got a little bag of 6-32 x 1/2" screws from Lowe's hardware, and those worked fine on the inside holes. I also got some 1" long thinking I could go through both holes at each point, but those were too shot. Perhaps 1 1/2" for that.

Probably looks better with the shorter screws anyway. Just takes a little more work to get them in there.

Also, I don't know if are aware of the 200mm fan issue, but the NZXT fan is the only one that fits those holes correctly. There is no standard for that size unfortunately. I used black twist ties to hold my Coolermaster fan onto the rubber mount. made sure they were tight with some pliers and they are barely noticeable.

Well I took the first step in watercooling my rig. I bought a used BIX360. It shouldn't be too hard to imagine where I'll put it, but if you need a hint, I'll need to find a new way to carry it around. I'll have pics of what I'm thinking of sometime this week.

I'm not a overclocking expert, but I have it running comfortably at 3.6GHz. I have had it as high as 3.95GHz previously, but just for quick tests with my previous air cooler.

Temps stay at 70C or below when folding or gamming. They approach 80C when running IBT, but that is very exteme and still OK.

I'm going to reseat it and apply some AS5 and do some more benching. Didn't have that handy the first time.

I should add that I don't think this is the cooler you want for high overclocks like that. I got it mainly for size, and am also very happy with the low noise level.

That's what some say, but I can not find a definite answer.

With mine it seemed that a lot of heat builds up in the graphics area as there isn't much exhaust. The 200mm just pushes all the heat to the back where it just sits.

Are you graphics card temps any good when under load?
