    The pump/res is staying where it's at. It is held in place by industrial strength velcro, so it isn't going anywhere.

    I'm not sure if I'll add a GPU waterblock or not, I may, eventually, but there's no plan to as of right now. I may have a pinstriper paint those letters white though, so they match the color scheme. The only upgrade that I have in mind, as of right now, is adding another Vertex 3.

    That would be _epic_. Seriously. Do it! Or you could probably remove the sticker altogether

    Crossed and crossed. Any alternative route would've been worse off, and probably outright crossed.

    I tried to not cross them, but the tubing would kink every time I tried to use the inside barb on the radiator to the in barb on the CPU block.

    It's a loop with three sections of tubing. The not-crossed route is obvious and they only reason he went with the alternative was due to the cheap Rasa kit tubing having kinking problems.

    For future reference, PrimoFlex LRT 3/8" ID 5/8" OD makes that bend easily

    This seems like a really roundabout way of saying "PrimoFlex LRT would've been able to make the bend" -.-

    No, because there's multiples ways to make the that loop order work. Somebody already mentioned the 45-degree elbow fitting option. There's also the option of flipping the radiator around. I just found it funny becauseyou made it out to be impossible when the solutions are relatively simple. My preference is for a simple tubing change because elbows add flow restriction and you never know exactly when you might add a loop component and be forced into an even tighter bend.

    Still waiting for my 3570k to arrive (I'm still hoping IB will be worth it...), but here is a minor update on my build:
    - All components more or less mounted in place. As I said, still waiting for the CPU.
    - Cable management done. Spend around 50 cable ties (not kidding). I would not recommend the FT02 to an inexperienced builder unless they don't mind having a cable mess. I guess the sleeved cables do add to the bulky-ness, but still. Getting the 24-pin connector to not cause a huge bump in the side panel was pretty exhausting.

    The specifications are (or will be when it's done):
    - Silverstone FT02
    - i5 3570k cooled with an H80 in push-pull
    - ASRock Z77 Professional
    - 16GB Corsair Dominator GT (8-10GB as a RAMDisk)
    - ASUS Radeon 7970
    - ASUS Xonar DX
    - Samsung 830 128GB SSD
    - Corsair AX750

    Would love to hear the specs on that goe3n. I can already see the 2x Asus Matrix cards which look SICK (get a shorter SLI bridge that doesn't bend in the middle so much :P) but the rest of the specs?

    Has nice glow in it! (think those dual matrixes make it)

    I'm baffled though, where's the pc in the second image? That small box on the left certainly isn't the one above!

    I thought the picture's temperature as well as the hole in the wall gave it away, but I'm pretty sure the computer's on the other side of the wall.
