Alright the good stuffz! Raystorm installed...

HS removed.

Thermal pads added and TIM removed.

I kept the Sparkle back plate for the 560. Needed to take out some of the rivets for it to fit.
450

Screwed up the first one. Might get some black paint to cover that up. But at least it has a backplate which makes the whole thing look a lot better!

for the coolant, just go to safeway or a supermarket and get a gallon distilled water for 99 cents. Then add a silver strip that costs maybe 5-6 bucks.

edit: nvm you bought the coolant already

How much PPD does it put out? Around 30K? Assuming you overclocked the 2500K ;]

How much tubing did you use? and would the 240 rad fit on a 400r, it's 4mm thicker than my H100 which I was able to fit, yet it rubs against the 8-pin

Sorry there nick, hadn't seen your reply.

Hrmm, I dunno about the 400r. Having never worked with the case I'm in no position to tell what does or doesn't work.

As for tubing, I got my standard 10ft and had 3 ft left over... so 7 feet. But buy 10 anyhow. Costs nothing and you'll save yourself some headaches.
