    Hope it works out, I had 6 radiators in mine, one was exhaust, removed the sixth, and temps improved, all that rad was doing was warming the fluid up. lol My case temps my are 4C-7C warmer than ambient.
    Now temps look good, considering the overclocks and the voltages, lol and a 68F room.. furmark with post processing.

    Six rads only 1 exhaust ..... I think I can see the problem there, it was out of balance.

    All 3 of the rads up top are exhaust in mine.

    Fittings P0rn ;-)

    Most of the fitting I'm using.

    And I have to say coming from BP black matte. The koolance fitting are just in entirely different class. Its like moving from Spray painted to anodized.

    I guess i should of asked someone if they had some spare BP matte black fittings laying around as i have a ton on the way. hehe. Much more costly then regular shiny silver fittings forsure but i wanted the fittings to match the part there attached to. So i've got all shiny silver for all the blocks and black for the pump tops,rads and res. So a half and half setup hehe. Prob would of saved a Ben or 2 with all silver fittings. You live once.. enjoy it.

    Be careful of the black i overtightened a few and had to use tools to get them off the black is very thin. Allthough they allmost look better with the brass/gold highlights. Actually after this build i will have a few spare.

    Aw hell, your compression fitting-solution looks great! I wish I had a project like this to work on... my HAF is somewhat hopeless w/o modding the case.
    Signatures make my posts look huge... but I'm not humble enough to completely remove my signature, so I kept this note explaining it.

    you can persuade her with the DSLR + lense purposes are for investment and you and your wife can use it for taking pic of everthing that you love and moves(i guess). and give her example of really nicely done pic that will convince her that dslr is truly worthed for the family

    anyway nice project

    Very nice build, overkill is always good. I love the rad setup. And hey, if you have any fittings left after you want to get rid of, let me know. I dont live very far from you.

    I've been rethinking my Plan. my original one was to add fill lines and power reset on top panel.



    But the more i look at the case the more i don't want to ruin the lines of the front/top.

    I'm thinking of placing the buttons with the drain port on the spare PS hole acryilc/mesh on far right down here. As it is now Lamptron FC-2 and drain port are there. Its either that or over in the optical bays with a fan inside instead of mount at panel.

    New pumps arrived look great And red impeller.



    these not so happy with.











    The tops a Soild hunk of metal weights as much or more then pump res combined. No fill port hole.

    Only 2 g1/4 holes on side and the way there cut you can't use compressions without extenders or angles. The lip of the cutaway is way to close.

    I guess I'll have to keep my koolance res and work something out.

    * Gabe from swiftech already said these are addressed in new revision .
