    Usually it's push or push+pull.
    There's no difference between doing Push or Pull. Little difference again by doing Push and Pull, if you have pressure optimised fans.
    Apart from people using LED fans, most I see with custom watercooling are doing it pull. If you want a concrete example, Linus Sebastian.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiaQD0AAMnk @ 11:45 - This might help you out a pci express stopper. Also it depends on the plastic latch on the pci express slots I mean Asus uses better quality and it "raises" the card more than on Gigabyte motherboards.

    Is this a dc2t or DC2O? :P

    I would disagree with this. Push/Pull combo will yield better results even if using a pressure optimized fan in almost every situation.

    See: http://martinsliquidlab.org/2012/01/...-testing-v2/3/

    I realize you said little difference but it's normally 2c+ difference which is a pretty decent amount when it comes to watercooling.

    According to Linus Sebastian, Pull is better than push.

    But not for performance reasons, only due to the trouble of dust removal/accumulation.

    Nope but it's the exact same, just a lower clock speed.

    Im using a noctua nh-d14 which is apparently a tiny bit higher than yours at 160mm and that just fits in my case, because the fans only 20mm wide. I had to use screws that didnt come with the fan though, think i used screws from the nh-d14 that werent for my motherboard.
    Only NZXT 200 mm fans can fit in this case (the design is a bit smaller than a typical 200 mm), and their only orange LED 200 mm fan cannot fit into my side panel because it will hit the cooler if I try to close the panel.

    CPU: AMD A10-5800k
    Motherboard: ASRock FM2A85X Extreme 6
    Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB OCed to 2133MHz
    Case: Cooler Master Storm Scout 2 (best case I've ever owned)
    PSU: Antec BP550
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master GeminII
    Video Card: None
    Hard Drive: Antec Green 1TB (what, I'm on a budget)

    Runs games very nicely, but I mainly put it together for running virtual machines. I'll be upgrading the janky hard drive and adding a 7850 when I have the funds. It runs Windows Server 2012 quite swimmingly.

    Yeah i have an nzxt phantom myself, http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...1#post20010454 (link to my set up) i took a couple of pics for you and anyone else googling phantom side panel fans since i had to do quite a lot of research myself.

    If you have a look on that fan i linked earlier most people reviewing it bought it for a phantom. It was tight though, and the screws i used were only just long enough. You also need to drill the holes yourself since the fan comes with the holes only partially drilled, theres a thin layer of plastic over one side.
    I cant see an orange one though, only a red one http://www.amazon.co.uk/Xigmatek-XLF...0334609&sr=1-3 Though the leds arent actually coloured, its just white leds that light up the coloured blades.
    That said though if you temps are fine id just go with a side panel http://www.amazon.co.uk/NZXT-Phantom.../dp/B006FW0LQA there pretty cheap and look good.

    So I went to a store today. It sold chromed copper pipes. The 600T build I had recently has also been moved over towards a new computer case. (More on that another time.) So the loop's out, I don't have a working computer because the reservoir and pump couldn't be installed anywhere, etc. The loop's not filled even.

    Deciding I might as well give it a try, here's the first attempt's outcome.





    Oh, and the new case had some space restrictions it turned out. Would've been fine if it was a smaller graphics card though, but the fans had to be installed a bit funny in the end... Anyway, to put it into perspective of how tight things are here...

    Dude, that CPU is going to last you like 6 years.

    To be fair, these tubes are easier to handle than normal tubes, in a way. Though I'm definitely ordering the bigger multilink connectors from Bitspower, since they'll almost certainly hold the tubes better, and have two rubber gaskets I believe.
