No problem man, I just have one request, pics bro when you have the set up lol

Just make sure you register your parts, some times you might get a cool rep and they will green light an RMA that wasnt registered but that is happening less and less lately

Thats a perfect loop! You will be happy! Have you decided on how to mount the reservoir? I think mounting it to the fans would be the best way to go. The radiator you have there is thin enough to allow for fans and a longer video card smile.gif

Can you let me know how those 45's and 90's are..they look huge!

@ audioholic

Thanks! I plan on mounting the radiator to the front of the case on the inside with the fans on the outside underneath the shroud. I will be cutting away or drilling holes in the case so that there wont be any air flow restriction through the rad. also im going to do two tests on the temps ( one with the foam that is behind the shrouds grills and one test with the foam removed to see if it makes a difference. I'm dead set on putting the fans behind the shroud but if it proves to cause too much restriction ill have to try and move them inside the case which I really dont want to do because of space issues.

as for the Monsoon angled connectors, ya they do look a bit on the large side but I did some research and looked at reviews and I believe they will fit just fine, they look bulkier but they dont seem to take up much more space than the other brands do, plus they look really cool! biggrin.gif

This is my layout plan
the 3.5" drive bays will be gone and the 5.25" bays will have the bottom cut out entirely so that the rad will fit, I hope to use the top bay for my HDD and mount a future SSD on the sides of the cage.

Mounting the fans behind the shroud is easy! Have you seen my log on it?
the loop looks good!
one suggestion would to get say a T block and run a drain tube!
also cut the nasty plastic on that shroud you'll see what I mean!

Thanks and no I haven't seen your entire build, but how is the air flow with the fans behind the shroud? also are you talking about the plastic alignment pegs around the sides or the crisscross design that's on the lower half of the shroud?

The crisscross part smile.gif Check out my build log...It pretty much shows everything I did(I think) tongue.gif
I had air coming into the case through the shroud and out the top..worked out really well smile.gif

Did you order the stuff already?

I skimmed through your build log but I couldn't find any part where you cut out the crisscross. I will most likely do it since I want to remove the foam stuff from behind it to get unrestricted air flow. I haven't ordered the parts yet, i'm waiting for another paycheck so that I will have buffer money in case of an unexpected bill or whatever, luckily that will be next Friday so I will order it over next weekend biggrin.gif

also, just in case, what hardware (length, width, pitch) am I going to need in order to secure the fans to the rad ( or are they normally supplied)? just want to know if I need to make a Lowes run before I get too caught up in the build.
