How much room do you have between the motherboard tray and the right side panel?
Thanks. And there's not very much room. Just enough for spread-out singly-sleeved cables.

Subscribing now.
Thanks.

Nope, I have a Rasa RS240 kit and a RS120 on their way that will be going in. If you aren't familiar with that kit, it consists of a dual-bay reservoir/pump. The 240mm radiator will go on the bottom and the 120 on the front.

It might be a couple days before the next major update. My watercooling stuff should get here tomorrow, and after I make sure it will fit right, I'll be ready to have it painted.

And, in the department of learn-from-my-mistakes:
1) Make sure the bolts for the case feet won't interfere with the bottom radiator.
2) Don't cut the window hole too close to the back of the side panel or the window won't clear the back panel of the case when you try to mount the side panel on the case.

I'm still not sure whether the second mistake I made will come back to haunt me even after I attempted some repairs yesterday. Let's hope not.

EDIT: I dropped the case off to get powdercoated. Because going with the flow requires flexibility, the images that I'll be posting in a couple days should be a surprise.

Updates? 5 days is more than "a couple".

Sorry for the delays. Also, I hope it's not a disappointment, but I'm putting off the watercooling and Sandy Bridge. For now I'll just be reusing the parts from my backup rig. I've got pretty much all of the painting and sleeving done, so the end is near. I just have a few things coming in the mail that I need to finish it for now, so I should have an update later this week.

Thanks guys!

The mod is done... for now. It didn't turn out too shabby if I say so myself. I'll be taking some photos later and posting them late tonight, so keep an eye out.
