Water-cooling setup suggestions & review

Official Site and collection of reviews CM.com CMStorm.com

"If we had to sum up the Storm Sniper in one sentence, we'd do that by saying that it is an extremely practical and easy to work with case. Cooler Master claims to have spent countless days at Lan Parties to gauge the ins and outs of what gamers really want in an enclosure. We now say that this is no idle boast as we can see the Sniper as a must-have item for gamers who want to replace their current enclosures with something infinitely more practical." -Hardware Canucks

"In terms of its cooling capability, the Sniper bested an old favorite of mine, the Antec P180 series. The open mesh design and 200mm fans, offer incredible cooling performance without sacrificing noise levels. If this is any indication of the things to come, the CM Storm division may quickly become a new favorite among gamers and enthusiasts." -Hardware Reviews

"I have very little (if anything) bad to say about the Cooler Master Sniper. This is one very nice case. It has loads of room and is relatively light. It gives the end user the ability to remove unwanted items, add in needed items, and reconfigure fan locations." -Legit Reviews

Where to buy? Unfortunately it appears to have been discontinued.

I've been looking for a replacement for my Antec 900 which recently died... poor case, it served me well. But I saw this thread, and after looking at everything else knew this was exactly what I needed. I ordered my case yesterday off newegg, so add me to the club!

With a new case I need a new name. So I'm switching my build from Azriel's Fist to Exitus of the Vindicare.

I'm picking one of these up on Wednesday, going to have some fun with it. Might paint the inside black, I'm going to ad a 240 rad instead of the top exhaust fan, and depending how it will fit, possibly a 120 rad on the bottom just infront of the PSU. I'll have the blue LED Cooler Master fans + UV cathodes with UV green fluid and tubing. I'm stoked.

Thanks everyone for your interest thus far. Keep it going!
Yup! I actually like the way it came out too!
Anyone got sum suggestions on more things i could do to improve on it?

Edit: I was actually looking for a certian color orange and i couln't find it and gave up and went with green.

Edit 2: Ok guys I got a problem that needs your help! I have a Zalman ZM MFC1 fan controler that I want to use in the drive bay but this case dose not come with drive rails and the locking pin will not line up and there is no access to mount screws.
Any thoughts???

I haven't a clue on what to do with that. Would the included 2.5inch converter kit possibly work? What's wrong with the Sniper fan controller?

I went ahead and purchased this Lian-li HDD case to increase airflow, and will post pics and updated temps once i get it configured.

For all those switching over from the 900, welcome! Keep the pics coming so I can create a link to them through your name on the member's list.
