    Open to sudgestion and advice regarding layout/build.
    Looking to have a neat and tidy build - simple black and red theme.

    Spent a couple of hours with the dremel this arfternoon to fit the shrouds with the Thermochill PA120.3's. I reckon I may put the outlets at the other side of the case from there they can go straight up to the XSPC Res/D5 which I want on the right hand side ,looking at the case from the front.

    Jesus Christ! You could seriously rent that thing out to a small Italian family! Might get noisy in there though with all the Mumma Mias and pizza making and such...

    Looking forward to seeing what you do with this bolter, its gonna be epic

    Hang on, i see cable management being a problem here, can you put it behind anything?

    Oh and where is the HDD rack?

    I have CM Stacker830SE which was my frist watercooled PC, beautiful case, but I really a wanted to be able to mount the rad/rads internally. Have been looking at the Mountain Mods cases for about a year before I "pulled the pin".

    Your a thinking man Woot, yep where the hell can I hide them? As long as there black and neat I'm not too fussed about hiding them
    They ship with HDD racks that mount directly onto any "spare" 120mm fans, I have chosen to go with a SilverStone CFP51 Bay Converter for HDD.

    The right one is obiously yet to be mounted in the face plate.

    How much?
    The case only was $569 + extra bits (grills, filters, black screws,etc)
    Postage to NSW including insurance $280 (very well packed)

    Its a big sucker alright, I've bought another desk just to fit it all on.

    And Edifers S550's yes FTW!

    You reckon a single D5 (in that XSPC Res) is enough? There will be only the CPU block (Switech GTX) and the one Koolance VID579, not really huge or restrictive IMO.

    The Day Sandy died (Intel recall) I got my Mobo, whats the odds!

    Anyway its got 4 sata3 so I just want it going, way too much hardware to leave lying around.

    I have been doing the thankless task of cable sleeving and even replaced an LED to red in my Blu Ray which was quite satisfying.

    Now my CPU water block, painted Red, though a lot of colours in the photo's aren't true.

    And mounted
