    thanks its been a few years since I've been in the pc world. Sadly tho i wont be getting any more parts till after christmas, Just had my one screen die on my amazingly 2 weeks after the warrenty is up so having to pick one up tomorrow.But gives me a chance to figure out how im going to route water lines and figure out fittings and fans before i order them.

    So a little progress update. The rads came in so i gave them some paint and put them on the case so they won't get ruined sitting around, also redid the PSU cover and tested out a new placement for the screen.[​IMG] [​IMG]

    thinking so due to where ill be sitting and where the case will be positioned itll be visable. The screen will be used to monitor temps and loads

    I have been looking at adding a screen in my next build, to show the temp.

    Ya i figured since the case doesn't have any bays and Imma have a 360 rad in the front i could put anything behind the front glass so i decided on a screen
