Good work so far, I do have one question though.

Why are your fans on the front rad exhaust? I would think that you would want them to be intake fans.

Thanks to ask question first.
I wondered if it was better to exhaust or to intake.
If I intake, flow will be better in the case but hot air will go on hard drive and mobo. I was thinking it's was a better idea to exhaust.
But, it's my first water-cooled built.
So, if it's better to intake in front and exhaust in rear, I will reconsider fan/rad position.

Hi!

This week I was thinking about the front rad, I search for a way to improve the look of the front.

I searched in my electronic's wardrobe, I found 3 whites 12v leds stripes.





As I do with fans, I heatshrink wires for a better look and add a molex.



After that, I installed behind front rad.





Now it's looking like this when it's power on, but maybe I will add a frost to soften the leds.

I love the amount of LED's you have just laying around

About exhaust/intake, just make sure you don't create negative pressure inside your case, I think exhaust is better, but make sure that you have a side fan intaking or bottom fan (near the PSU) or some fans bringing air in.
Are you using both rads or only one?

For rads, yes I will use two.
Front will exhaust like rear and I will add a fan in the bottom middle to intake.

Update

I finally add a soften on led. It's looking like this, I've put alway on the highest part of led to see difference.




There, final installation of the rear rad.



Front look like this, but screws will be painted don't worry.




Because the two rads are exhaust I need an intake, I chose to install in the bottom. I made the hole with a dremel and it was easier than I thank. I will be a Thermaltake Thunderblade fan for the moment. I heatshrink fan's wire in red.




With the new emplacement of the intake fan, I had a problem to setup the psu. So I switched the psu emplacement to upper than the stock position.
