I have actually decided against the black tubing since the closest I could find to pure UV tubing looked very blue. As a result, I am changing my theme to UV green + UV blue to have some contrast between the standard colors.

doesn't matter know tho... can't wait to see the results
Didn't see this one but he's in the UK anyways so shipping would probably be a lot and the condition is quite vague. Thanks for the notice though.

Of course I will, you know the only reason I bought this case was to send it to you right after.

Requesting Input: I have some more funds leftover so I'm trying to decide what's the next thing to buy. Out of parts I still need the sound card, optical drive, and fan controller, but I also have nothing for watercooling as of yet. What do you guys think I should get first?

I would say save up till you have enough cash to buy the watercooling in one big bunch. That way it saves you money on shipping and you dont tease yourself constantly by having a half build water cooling loop sitting in a cupboard collecting dust.

Hmm, I guess you're right about that. I guess can run the CPU on the Intel cooler @ stock for now (I know, eww...
)

But for a dual loop system then $1000 sounds about right.
Yeah, my bank account is not looking forward to that too much.


I'm probably going to buy the entire CPU/Mobo loop first then wait a while and buy the GPU loop.

So here's something interesting. I actually just found a Dual Bay Dual Loop MCP355 Pump Mountable Reservoir from XSPC. This would make setup really easy but I really like the look of two single bay reservoirs instead (if you see the OP).

Take a look at this and tell me what you guys would rather go with (include aesthetics, ease of use, and performance):

XSPC 5.25" Dual Bay Reservoir - For Dual MCP355 Loops



Here's an example I found:
