I hacked up my Haf-X and installed a new Phobya Xtreme 400 Rad. It should look sweet after I paint my case.

I used a jigsaw to cut 2 circles in the top of the case for more airflow. I don't have a before hand picture shot but the opening is a small rectangle. It seemed kinda odd because 30% of a 200mm fan is blocked off by the case. I had to let the Rad breath so it got chopped. Poor design by Cooler Master IMO.

Hmmm. What FPI is that radiator? and perhaps get a fan controller?
The FPI from the pic seems quite low so u can get away with quite low CFM fans, and perhaps do it push pull?
Ferrari red seems cool

I have a question, since I am a total NOOB to water cooling..... If my Rad is the highest point in my loop then how the heck do I fill my loop completely? Will I need to Tee off with a fill hose that is able to move higher then the Rad? Sounds like a dumb question but I don't under stand how people have Rads high in the case while using front Res with fill ports. Wouldn't the water push out the fill port if you open it and the loop goes higher then your res?

The res must be above the pump and before it as well. In a CPU/GPU setup the most simple way to run your loop would be like this.

RES - PUMP - RAD - CPU - GPU - RES

Radiator placement is optional in the loop but considering the location of your ports on the radiator I would follow the loop order. Just my

Consider watts per channel and how many fans total. Also you will probably want to purchase or re-use some fan connectors if you do not have the same as the controller.
