    Thanks for the comments guy. I also prefer the older lian li cases, they really are something special in my eyes when it comes to simplistic design...

    More cooling-paste is NOT better, or it'll work against its purpose as many of you already know

    Now lets mount that pretty EK-block

    All ready to make itself useful in my rig

    Then it was time for getting the mobo ready for that h2o

    The power-cabling to my harddrives have always been a clutter due to un-customized lengts, so I decided to make my own cable to make it look better.

    This is what I started with, an old power-cable and a buch of push-on sata-connections from AC Ryan
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then I started connecting the cables at the correct lengts
    [​IMG]

    All done, lets start hiding those colorful wires with some heatshrink
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    All done!
    [​IMG]

    Now lets see if it fits

    I decided that I not only want two fans in the bottom of the case, but also a slimfit Black ice dual rad. That means that Ill be needing to make holes in the bottom of the case for passing through the tubing, and I came up with something to make it a bit more interesting...

    So what might this be? Anyone who remember this geometry formula from math-class...?

    hmm, still no clues?

    Allright then, its a set of tinted plexi dougnuts with screws in a pentagon-pattern to complement the res-unit in my system. They will be mounted around the holes for the tubing in the bottom for the 2nd rad.
