i would have painted the inside olive drab to match the mobo. looks good though.

edit: so the 2 front fans are exhaust? what is your airflow like?

I chose the 912 for the smaller size, I have a small "man cave" and space is precious.

I also have plans to do the inside Olive Drab and sleeve the psu and cables at a later date.

I chose to switch the front fans to exhaust because the H70 recommends pulling cool air in thru the radiator into the case. This may change in the future.

Can you orient the radiator with the tubes coming out the bottom instead? I don't know if Corsair recommends against this or not. You might be able to have a fan up top exhausting the warm air that comes out of the radiator's pull fan. That way, you could switch the front fans back to intake like they should be.

I'm thinking of getting a closed-loop no-maintenance liquid cooler like that (though I'll probably go with the Antec Kuhler H2O 620 if I do) and that's what I plan to do.

Edit: I've got two standard-size 120mm fans exhausting up top in my 912. Would those clear that radiator and its fans? From the pics you posted, it doesn't look like it, but I wanted to make sure.

I believe you can move the radiator to any position.I just put mine this way because I wanted the corsair logo to be right side up.

Also you could fit 1 of the 120s up top but not 2. You could also try mounting the rad on the drive cage wich would leave you room for the 2 120s up top somebody else on OCN did it this way.

Nice build! I too built my first rig inside the HAF 912 ( I love it's manly rugged looks). I agree the front fans should be intake with a single fan (if any) expelling to the top I also utilize a side intake with a single front intake. But hey variety is the spice of life.
