I see. I don't think I got an instruction booklet with mine. In any case I can't find it and don't remember seeing one, but who knows? It might have got lost in all the packaging and excitement.

I don't blame you for wanting to show off the rads, but I'm very happy with my 480's in the pedestal. I just got tired of working on crowded cases. When I add the RX240 inside that will be plenty of "fill" for me. Or you could put a pedestal on top, that would show off the rads some.

On the Aquaero, I don't understand if you think they are too much trouble? Most of my problems were of my own making due to lack of knowledge, but I'm pretty comfortable with the unit now. It's like the ultimate in monitoring/control devices IMO. Plus lots of stuff to tinker with if you load up with flow meters, inline temp sensors, etc.

For the motherboard, well I'm a big Gigabyte fan but sometimes they take more tinkering with than some folks are comfortable doing. But otherwise for 2011 either Asrock Extreme 11 or one of the Asus boards I guess. Someone at OCN did a review on an Asus WS board, let me look......."Asus P9X79 WS SSI CEB" sounds like a solid board, you should read the review if you consider something with different colors than the other Asus boards.....he says it's rock solid and a good overclocker as well.
Blue and Black, but you could get a ROG board for Red/Orange.

Still I would consider the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP7, I think that orange would look great in a black case!....and some MDPC orange sleeve.

I've read those, but I was not born in the 1920's when they were popular... Im not that old.



However I have one of those.

"like" - not "are" XD

I got a look at what the 2 480s look like in this case, man are they short !!



I took the top off, ala the switch, to screw the rad in place - so much easier ! Fun, taking out that many screws wink.gif





and yah - I luv that orange showing thru the black vent - the bottom one is filtered by a Silverstone ... does it mesh !

Yeah the silverstone filters look good. Im using them on all my intakes. However how thick are those rads they look so thin in that case?
