    Haha. The problem with the pump has been fixed and no i couldnt have used a 90 degree barb because there wasnt enough clearance. I took out the drive bay above it and i'll upload some pics of it late. It's still pretty tight though so i think i'm going to find some coolsleaves for it

    I think what you're saying is add a bottom window. I dont really want to because i want to keep everything as stock from the outside as possible. And if i just used molding and not plexi then my radiator fan would suck the dust straight up through the bottom of the case. But thanks for the input

    That and you'll kill your flow rate. Just make a few cuts, or rotate the pump body 90* on the mount, so that the tubing comes out the side.

    Pretty tubing you've got there. :hip:

    Exactly. With the length of the tubeing, the three radiators, and the three blocks i simply cant afford to have a 90 degree barb in my system. I've fixed the problem but i need to upload the pics from the camera that is at my dad's house.....ugggh. The tubeing is some of the best stuff i've seen/worked with. EVER

    hehe i really need to see how you got those rads in there... I just got my case in the mail yesterday and not kidding that i took 20 minutes just to stare at it. The features are incredible. I really have to give it to antec for a high quality case. Someone mentioned the flimsy front door but its actually quite strong. I was surprised. Now i have to figure a way to mount my vandal switch :p

    The plastic on the bottom of the door that latches to the case is "flimsy" I removed the doors dureing the entire modding process and set them aside so they wont be damaged. The bottom rad is easy to mount if you remove the bottom harddrive rack and the mounting for it. The top rad i havnt dealt with yet and the rad on the back will be outside of the case with the tubes leading in. You can mount one more rad in the bottom front if you use some zip ties instead of bolts or drill out the holes in the grill for the fan. You can also mount another rad underneath the psu so the 120mm fan from that will pull the air. If 5 isnt enough then you can remove the second harddrive cage and mount another rad there. The only cuts you would have to make to mount these six rads is the back grill underneath the 120mm exaust for tubeing and the floor beneath the Psu to allow airflow to the bottom rad. You also have to drill out the rivets for the bottom psu cage and if you are like me drill out the rivets for the 3.5inch bay inbetween the 2 hd racks and make 2 straight cts on the bottom. If 6 rads isnt enough, there is lots of room on top for some dremel action. :D Hope that helps

    UPDATE 8/30

    Fixed my Outlet problem. Here's a few pics to show what i did.

    Here's the first to rivets holding the 3.5inch cage that's in my way.
    [​IMG]

    First rivet gone
    [​IMG]

    Second rivet gone
    [​IMG]

    Another "hidden" rivet. It was covered by my aucoustic matting and the matting had to be removed and replaced to drill out the rivets.
    [​IMG]

    There was alot of grunt work (basicly takeing off pax mate to slide out the cage) that i didnt take pictures of because i was tired and just wanted it fixed. So i have a pic of the the finished product instead.
    [​IMG]

    As you can see the drive bay has been removed from the mid-section and now the hose has more bending room. I've ordered some coolsleves and i think that will keep the tubeing very sturdy with this tight curve. It's Blue so it'll match the tubeing as well. You can see in this next picture it is much better than before but still slightly kinking.

    This case was just made for watercooling
    [​IMG]

    I realized this update was sort of small compared to my others so i took this time to take some pics of my workspace and the chaos of modding.

    I thought what you had in mind was a window on the bottom. This is the case flipped upside down. And thank you
