    lemme guess, pump rattle RMA?

    ...anyways, I posted it in my build log thread but I figured I'd post it here too. I finished setting up my computer's water cooling loop today

    Woa, how did you guess? Are you psychic?

    Seriously though, yes - it had a rattling pump. Was supposed to ship it last Friday from work but the guy who handles our deliveries thought it would fit better in his truck. Took me a good amount of phone calls to track it down (especially since all it said on the actual package was "Privat"). It's on its way now though. Hopefully.

    Considered adding some cathodes? Or turning on the lights? Or using camera flash (but that'll just reflect off the plexi)?
    I can't see anything :S

    I actually liked the non flashy dark imprint quite a lot. Looks more elegant in a way. I'd be tempted to keep it like that .

    I don't even want to suggest watercooling, because that just looks sexy as it is.

    So am I actually. I'm temped to add some faint white LEDs just to light up the components though.

    Also, I almost forgot (continuing Cyan's trend):

    Looking good Marest, crossing my fingers that your new H80 is noise free!

    Decided that my previous pictures didn't really show off the cable management or cable extensions, also took a picture of behind the motherboard tray.

    Build log here.







    Hehe!

    Finally another person who has their Seasonic installed upside down. Quite pretty Noteworthy considered adding the GPU to the loop anytime soon?

    Nah, I don't think so, the temps are fine they way they are, I think more tubing in such a small case (small when considering what loops that size are normally installed in) would make it look cluttered, not to mention, I'd need to buy a new pump/res, as I doubt the one that comes with the RASA 750 is powerful enough.

    And yeah, it's "upside down", but I wanted the fan pointed down. :/

    Well I feel bad because you did all that work to accomplish basically what an H100 does >_<
    As for the PSU, I only say "upside down" because the big decorative X is on the other side and Deltrus came waddling along to giggle at my seasonic sticker ruining my looks (pfft). Our cases have a nice, filtered bottom intake specifically for the PSU so it would be silly to install it any other way XD

    Regarding the NZXT/Bitfenix/whatever sleeved extensions...I considered using those, but sadly the cables sprouting from the PSU still look mismatched and wierd. So it's either sleeve the whole thing or GTFO for me!

    Finally got my 4 fans ordered with my fan controller controlling all of them

    Including a fan controller built into the case

    I would recommend - cooler master sickleflow 120 mm fans they move so much air and are silent when they are controlled

    I used to love going to the beach during summer, until Greenpeace started trying to push me back in the water.

    Oh I know, that was fairly deliberate. I did a water cooling loop for the fun of it, basically.

    So..much..side ventilation...

    I agree with Sickleflows. Dirt-cheap, silent, push air, LED's that don't blind you, I run 3 of them in my case
