    After a long snowy weekend I am done.

    Placing the pump was a rather tight fit.

    Building in this case is great. If something is in the way, you just dismantle it...

    I have mixed feelings about the result.

    It is quieter, that box is ticked.
    But the tube layout which looked good in the InWin 928 somehow does not look right in the be quiet!...

    The res came out nice...

    ...but I somehow dislike the RGB gadget in the PSU floor (too big) and the fact that the long tube now runs directly in front of the rear fan.

    Well, I'll live with that for a year or two, while I come up with something new :o:

    I think it looks great! Very nice. If the back tube bothers you, is it maybe possible to rotate the top radiator and put that tube in the front? But in a way, I like it lined up next to the four tubes coming out of the GPU/CPU. For the bottom RGB, maybe just put a piece of window tint on the bottom side, to make the pattern more subtle??

    Again, I like it and think you did a great job.

    Thanks, Karrek.

    Tube in front does unfortunately not work, because the routing under the PSU floor would clash with the pump.
    I will probably change the rear fan to a smaller 120mm non RGB fan. Than the contrast is not so big.

    I like the EK Vardar X3M. Looks kinda bad ass to me.

    Maybe I put another one on top of the RGB - just for show.
    Or I remove it entirely and put a fan instead. The case is designed for that anyway.

    Need to play around a bit. Those are just minor things, easily done...:thumb:

    Yep. Changing/adding a fan did the trick - at least for me.

    Bottom fan is also non RGB, the illumination comes from the RGB gadget in the floor.
    Performance wise this fan is absolutely nonsense, it blows air against a flate plate :duh:

    But hey - who says case building needs to make a whole lot of sense :grin:
