    I just got the same exact case though with the normal Horizontal MB possition. I wanted it like how you have it with it right in the middle and the 3 fans above the mb tray and P/S below. Though didnt have the patience to wait till mid October for the custom back. I originally was going to order the brushed aluminum like my former MM case and just get an extra panel and cut it the way i want the back panel but ofcourse they were out of stock on the back panel in brushed aluminum and i had to just order the case in the wrinkle black insted. Love that finish but it makes it like impossable to now make the panel myself as it would trash the finish. Its either leave it alone as is or flip the back panel 180 and have the mB tray at the bottom but then the tube lines would be crazy going from the bottom of such a tall case all the way up to the top of the rad.

    I'll probably get the back panel made later on but damn will it suck to redue the water lines afterwards lol.

    Are you sure they'll all fit side by side?

    Oh and great idea of sticking the tripple drive bay in the rear out of the way of all the rads! I also would of loved the all quad rads in front without the odd ball drive bay on it. I guess it would be odd having it at the back bottom but really, how often do you use the DVD drive?

    If you cant fit rads side by side on that case i'll be sending the case back to MM! hehe. I'm sure you can as i've seen a few pictures with many rads in the past.

    Yes

    Front panel fitted , I have to assemble all most everything then take it apart and reassemble. 75% of my builds theory but I measured 3 times cut once. But even then some things don't add up.

    Some panel p0rn for ya . The Pics aren't the best the lighting in the room sucks.

    Nope not internally the simply not enough room (and they don't make it bigger), but you could externally , Filter>Fan>case>rad>Fan, this was my original though , but seriously I can't run the numbers I can't find my excel but as it is now it about 4 quads overkill Cooling for standard usage. And max OC/gameing its still about 50% overkill. But I never have to mess with the fans off silent even while running heaviest anything ;-) also planning on upgrading next year so this will have the headroom for max OC/sli/xfire and never have to adjust the fans off silent.

    So going through the trouble/expense of adding 24 fans to the system for no gain added noise when I had other things to spend money on ..well.

    Gotcha.. So one could only do tripple rads on top if ya got the front full of quads and fans.

    Ah.. doh, you got the black anodized finish. Mines the wrinkle. Looks nice.

    Sweet.. I cant see why you could'nt get some fitting to fit between them like a 90 or something. I could feel a headache coming on just trying to figure out where to either vent or get cool air in the case for both the front and top. Prob have vents on the sides so air could enter the case and exit through the rads. If you did just a pull only it would be easy to clean the rads of dust build up that way.

    Ofcourse you could rotate the rads around so the fittings would be at the back and the bottom of the case.. Would be alot harder to bleed the air out of the rad that way though. Plus a mess with the tubing.. but you could dasiy chain the rads on the front and have them run into a large tube res and the rads on the top daisy chain together and run to another port on the same res. That would seriously cut down on the tubing. hehe.. crazy though but looks tough.

    Simple really , Front panels are cpu loop top are gpu , connected with Koolance adjustable sli video card spacers. In-SLI-SLI-Out . Pump/res are mounted on bottom set of rad holes in between the rads them self with undesigns infinite vertical.

    As far as cleaning goes those filter meshs are outside removable. Modright filterright

    Air is pull intake in front and back. Push out top.

    I spent months planning this case. Only major change since i finalized is the pumps/rez.

    never had any luck exhausting through radiators. Always warmer inside the case, could drop a few radiators, and pull ambient air through and have same/better temps... just throwing that out there.

    Positive pressure more in then out will help also the back intake are aligned to blow cool air over along the top rads so they intake that as well.
