Np man, welcome to water cooling.
And the red tubing, gotta have my red somewhere

Thanks! I'm excited for the semester to be done, so I will have saved up my money, and have somewhere other than a dorm room to start building!

Modding a 360 into any large case shouldn't be to hard. You could be fine with a 120/240 but it just matters on what clock speeds..etc you expect to get out of your system.

Its my first build, not sure how overly comfortable I am with modding a case! For the phantom I'm pretty sure the top drives need to come out and cut a hole in the back.

And bl1nk, yeah, wait is killer! I'm quite excited! What are you going to your loop?

Well first I'm going to paint the inside of my case black or maybe white and then do some accents in the opposite color (haven't decided on what color scheme yet). Then I''ll be buying a thinner rad so I can mount internally and rearrange a bit. Also want to get to sleeving wires. Yea.. a lot on the to-do list.

It might not hurt looking into some cases more water cooling friendly, I kind of wish I went with a bigger case for more rad room.

Sounds like a fun project though!

I'm looking at some other cases, just kinda sucks because I REALLY like those two. I may go for a corsair obsidian series 800D...but I cringe at its price. Spending quite a bit of my budget on a case would sting. I have looked at the cooler master cases, I like the 932 except for the insides not being painted, and I am so incapable of that its hilarious and something feels just off about the haf x.

And inb4 someone brings up Lian Li...I would have to replace all the blue LED fans. Some call it picky, I say ill have to look at it for years

800D is a great case for water cooling also on the note of the 932:
Black Edition

Book marked that! You sir are quite epic, I can't believe I never noticed that!

And the 800D is a great case for water cooling? Does it justify to hefty tag? Just curious if you know xD

Yes it does, to some. To me, ehh.. not really. But that's just my personal situation as I would rather spend that much money on something else and I'm not fond of the 800d's looks.
