I hope my current project turns out half this nice. Very good looking build.

Re. the Wye fitting. That appears to be a good place to drain the loop down for cleaning, etc.

Just the opposite, it's used as a drain. Because the Res isn't the lowest part of the loop, I realized that draining the loop would be a pita, so I put that Y with THIS at the other end of that tube. It drains fairly easily now...

You have a push/pull on the top rad, how do you have room for the MB? BTW, very sexy pics and I like the your FightingFish a lot. Sometimes I wish that I had never put the false floor in my Rocketfish.

I measured before I cut the top. The rad is actually not centered on the top panel, but offset away from the mobo side of the case about 2-3mm. It's just enough to have about 2mm clearance with the mobo and still be able to connect the 8-pin connector and clear the v-reg heatsink.
I played with the idea of doing a false floor for a while, but eventually decided against it, especially since the bottom rad is one of the main exhaust points for the case (I know that's a big no-no, but the 38C load temps on my videocard tell me it's all good

Aside from that, once again, excellent job.


Yea, those lol I had bought 2 more black ones and I lost them!
I also have a one piece AC Ryan grill, but I dunno that I like it, and the mounting holes aren't lining up right anyway. Either way, a fix is coming...
