Side Rad installation

first the HDD bay mounts need to be removed, and when that's done, there are 2 mounting brackets for the side rad.

you dont have to drill holes for a normal cylindrical res, The one am using is a pump mod res , so I had to drill holes to mount it the way I did.
I used the stand that I got in my Pump mod kit to mount the whole thing.

The New 360 rad:

Also I returned my Bitfenix recon fan controller and got a Phobya 30W fan/pump controller.

Recon really sucked, the touch screen wouldn't respond and Fan speeds would fluctuate rapidly. I don't recommend buying it.

Really hard to find a Aplhacool nexXxos UT60 full copper 480mm rad, every store is out of stock in Australai. How close is phobya G-changer 480 v2 full copper in performance with the UT60? Cant find any reviews on this rad at all..

I have seen both of them and I really think they are made by the same company!!!! I maybe wrong but I could not tell the difference in the 2 rads when I was looking at them!!

Okay, but I found a review of the 360mm V2 here: http://martinsliquidlab.org/2012/04/14/phobya-g-changer-360-v2-radiator/

It looks likes its a bit behind the UT60 and In the conclusion the guy who is reviewing the rad is saying that UT60 is made of copper and the phobya rad is made of brass. It dosent make sense cuz the 480mm one reads as "full copper"

those are older reviews and might not be up to date with the Rads..

Bought a Seasonic 1000w Plat but it had a defect in the casing so I exchanged it for a Corsair AX 860i because I have decided to not ever go Dual GPU because GPU power has been increasing by a lot more than the current games need. I might be getting the R9 290X If its around the $599 price tag.

Also Pics of the psu.
