Finally got my HIS 7970 x2 put in along with my my new Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H on Friday. The only thing I don't like about this case is your only option is that you can only use HDD or Power LED and not both at the same time. Is that correct? Or did I read the manual wrong? Feel free to fill me in? Otherwise this case is clean and my rig looks fresh and very clean.

Hi I placed the pump in the 5.25 cage.

But there was not the perfect place so I installed the pump on top off the HDD cage

Generally speaking you want the reservoir to be positioned higher up than the pump so the water falls in to the pump and helps with the flow of water (IIRC)

Hey guys, I am new to this, can I get a little advice...

XL R2 full size case

Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H motherboard with 3 spots for fans (3 spots I believe).

My case came with 3 140mm fans, and I received 2 more of these exact same fans from Fractal Design. So I have a total of 5 fans.

I originally connected the basic 3 fans to the case's fan controller plug, and that's how I have been using my pc. Is that the best way to utilize the fans, or should I use the motherboard's connectors?

How would I want to connect the remaining 2 fans I recently received?

Thanks.

I would run two front intake and one side intake for gpu with rear exhaust and maybe top back exhaust also. Is your gpu a blower type? If so you could alternately try intake in the top position and see if there is a difference. Might help to have more intake if the fronts are filtered and the gpu is exhausting case air also.

Your mobo has a pwm cpu header, a voltage controlled cpu_opt (that probably mimics the cpu fan...not positive on your board) as well as voltage controlled sys_fan 1-4. It looks like maybe you won't get as much control from the sys_fan 4 compared the others. I would use the mobo headers if possible though as they will most likely give you more control options.

Looks fantastic. I really like the neon green and the subtle lights, leds are not overwhelming like with some rigs.
