To be honest, I think that's only because there is only 2 fans included. But, if you add 2 140mm fans, air flow wouldn't be a problem.

Bitfenix says they'll be releasing in canada hopefully by late december. They also released a side panel window for the colossus which is great because then I won't have to mod my current one, but I'll be moding bitfenix's side panel because I'm going to change the acrylic color.


Sorry about the lack of pics, I dropped my crappy camera and it pretty much broke, so I'll be going to a pawn shop or somewhere and pick up a new camera



EDIT:

I decided to go for some cheap Adata "gaming" ram instead to save some cash. I also am going to get SLI'd GTS 450s or GTX 460 768gbs instead of a 6850

Thanks!.

MDPC-X sleeving came today!! I missed the post man since I wasn't home when he came, so I'll pick up the package later today.

Here's what I ordered from newegg (cant screenshot on this netbook since low resolution)

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152181

ASUS ENGTS450 DIRECTCU/DI/1GD5 GeForce GTS 450 (X2)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121393


SeaSonic X650 Gold 650W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151088


Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226102


AeroCool Shark 140mm Black Edition
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835129057


This is for a gaming rig. This is a list of what I got from performance-pcs:

-EK HF CPU waterblock (black acetal nickle)
- 6 Primochill 5/8 OD clamps
-8ft black primochill tubing 7/16id 5/8OD
- 2 bitspower compression fitings
- 4 bitspower barbs
- XSPC pump/res 750lph
- EK 140mm radiator


I decided not to cool the gts 450s as adding some sound dampering foam is much cheaper and better for my cpu as well as my wallet. Hopefully I can get everything by thursday and so I can get everything together, but sleeving will probably take all of my time and so I won't finish until after christmas


Thanks guys

Picture Time!!!



Went on vacation to marco island florida for the weekend. Awesome place


Box from performance-pcs. These guys are only 5 hours away from me and I didn't even have to pay tax . Stuff came in a day which is awesome.


Foam peanuts are cool

Stuff I got. I ordered 2 extra feet of tubing since this wasn't enough.

140mm EK radiator. It'll be external since it looks cleaner inside the case

What you're looking at is the XSPC pump/res thing. I figured that it's enough for my loop.


Finally, the EK HF black/acetal block. Very nice quality!



Some distilled water...
