Firstly.... that's a metric tuck fon of pages to get through. I've dabbled in this thread many times but not through every page.
There's a lot of good info, and I've registered just to say thanks to those putting up first had experience and advise.
I've had this case for a while now and I've luckily found myself in the posession of a EK 240 kit (RGB), watercooling has been my long term goal for my rig but that initial outlay for the components has prevented me from moving forward.
I've bought a GTS 360 to go up top, I'm just waiting until payday so I can buy a few more fittings and a GPU block. I'm reluctantly going soft tubing as they're the fittings I've got, but hardline will be done at some point.
So my set up will be:
PE 240 Front
GTS 360 Top (panel rested)
EK block for 1080FTW2
EK Supremacy CPU block
EK Rev 140
Now that the Evolv X is out, there's little point in getting my panels cut or doing it myself, I'll make up the cost by selling the x62 and the case, throw a few extra notes in and I've got an even better looking case that I don't have to mod (I hope).

This is one thing I've not seen whilst scanning all 198 pages, would be interesting to see if people have done it, I've thought about it and running it out back or through the top... but that defeats the point of wanting it on the front I/O.
Again, big thumbs up to most of the solid posters on here.
