How do you fill your res if you put it at the back compartment above the PSU, there is no space? Do you fill it externally and then mount it?
Here is how I fill the back of mine got the idea from frozencpu's air540 that they used to sell. Also going back to your last question I have a PE 240 on top push pull and PE 360 push with fans outside of the case. No modding to make them fit. I have since removed the push on the top rad cause I felt like it wasn't all that necessary.

Here is my build log it might help if you want to do a pass though like mine to fill.

Must be the fittings I am using. I couldn't get a 360 rad to fit up front without probably cutting out that hard drive bay.

Nice builds all.

Hi,
could anyone help me with the clarification ... what is the CPU cooler clearance? Based on spec it's 170mm but it looks like it's more than 185mm. I am doing something wrong with the measurements?

Thanks,
aepseidhe

Well the time has come for me to move on from my custom red, white, and black Powder coated and painted 540. It's time for a change though. Off to Fleabay she goes. It's been great guys.

Hello,
I am trying to get some replacement motherboard mounting screws, does anyone know the size? Is it 6-32 x 1/4in? or is it M3.5 x 6mm?

Thanks in advance!

How did you mount the fans on the bottom. Double sided tape?

How did you mount the fans on the bottom by the 5 inch hard drive cages? Did you use double sided tape?
