One thing to note: Make sure you have airflow over your mosfet/nb/sb heatsink now you have that chunk 120mm rad in the way. You don't want those to be melting while you cpu chills out. NB and SB usually have temp sensors you can watch, but your power circuits are usually not monitored for heat, and are just as vital for your machine.
Thank you very much. Right now I have an 80mm fan cooling mosfet's. Thanks for the rep

Gentle typhoons are on the way. I have been lagging on painting the case because of work but it will be done in the next couple weeks.

Brave? Why? Is the case rigged to detonate if he cuts the wrong wire?

Are you opposed to having that rear fan/shroud mounted outside the case? I know you wanted to keep everything internal, but thats what I'm considering when I WC my 902.

I am opposed to that, I am keeping everything inside the case. This project just keeps getting delayed that's what Vegas will do to you though.

Sanded with 3 coats of self etching primer on it. I will sand the primer and reapply again tomorrow then throw some black primer on top of the self etching. This build should come to an end rather soon.

The point is to keep the case I have been a fan of this thing since day one. It will look less cluttered without the shroud on that 120mm radiator the entire cpu block will be exposed.
