    well, I evaluated this problem, and thinking on that.
    but because of the galaxy power supply have 1 big 130mm fan and another 80 mm fan, both pulling warm air out of the case, I supposed is enough. I have room also to add another 80mm fan pulling air out of the case.
    BTW after the first assembling will be done I'll be monitoring the temps on the down part of the case to see if it is ok.
    Have all the fan on the radiator is a way which i prefer aesthetically, and think also that the pump is designed to handle higher temp the real one into the lower part of the case.
    BTW if it will to high, after test, I'll change the fan side on the radiator

    Looking good! This has been really helpful for me - I was thinking about building a system a lot like this myself. Did that hard drive rack come with the case? Also, did you have to make the 5.25" mounting holes for it? Or was it already like that?

    Good stuff.

    To be honest, I'd probably have the dual rad blowing in, while the triple is blowing out. That will equalize the heat transfer a bit probably. The heat coming off the dual will be negligible and really won't affect the triple's cooling capability, because you'll have the PSU exhausting as well. Try out different ways and see what works the best.

    the hard drive rack is came with the case, and originally is positoened in the lower part ( were i'm placing the radatiaros).
    I didn't do any adjuntive holes for mounting, I just used the original hole and screwed in same 3mm spacers ( take a look to the pics )

    I would prefer finish first, and evaluate the effective temps, if somthing is wrong, I will change the orientation of the fan . Wanna waith because to change the fan orientation, cost me a lot of work ( umount the rad, redoing the hole, and prolly make some adjuntive holes to the case...)

    this is the result

    and, this is the solution to mount the little pump

    prolly I iwll need to modify the pump-plate, to close the side of the case..

    That's not your primary monitor on the last shots, is it?

    Good work with the case.

    Thats a very very nice looking case, And gives me alot to think about now that i have my TJ07, question though, did you leave the two 90mm fans on the rear? And whats the entire machine like for noise? As currently mines all on air, and with the exception of my two Raptors, its very very quiet.

    Again, nice work, and hope to see more from you.

    Yes i leaved the original 90mm fan (rear and top) but controlled by rehobus.
    About the noise, for my idea of PC it is not properly quiet, but for his howner it is really quite because before this rig, he had a single stage cooled PC for daily use, this one is ok for him :). And with all the hardware inside the rig I think is no possible to make it more quiet

    Great looking system.. Love the specs, but have you thought about using just one display on the front of the case instead on the various thermal sensors. It would create a far cleaner look overall.
