    Lookin' Sharp!

    The PSU Cover looks like it was totally meant to be there. Very Slick.

    Temps look good too. Great looking build Vinnie. Looking forward to seeing that second rad in there!

    Well installed the second rad yesterday added a drain tube with ball valve shutoff Also replaced all the stock fans with Corsair quiet High CFM Green LED
    I need to cut the shroud cover after installing the second rad up front so it will slide back in its hitting the rad
    I could have raised the rad and gained maybe inch, but it would have still not been enough.
    Temps a a bit better as well click on the pics attached for a closer look. (After that I am done!!!) lol!

    Looking Good Vinnie!

    I'm trying to figure out where you put the drain tube and shutoff valve. Is that the third line coming out of the pump/res and headed towards the top of the case? The one that looks like it goes up behind the 5.25" drive bay?

    Yes that's the one, I will pull it down and take another pic with it down I screwed in a barb to the outlet of the ball valve, so when I pull it down
    I can slap on a longer piece for draining purposes only. Going to cut the shroud today and cover that mess lol!

    Got it. What's your plan for "topping up"? Will you pull the top cover off the Res and funnel it in? Just asking as your drain tube would seemingly be too low for a fill tube...I seem to recall I puzzled about this same thing when I did my first loop, and simply used the top of the res for topping up. I've never figured out the drainage part...lol

    I used the drain hose to top it off it was so much easier that way, just left the top cap off and filled it from the hose
    with a turkey baster lol! and just closed the ball valve when I was done and screwed the cap back on. The intake at the top
    has slotted opening under the cap making filling of this res very difficult from the top.

    I cut the shroud with my dremel after testing that on the old shroud to make sure it would work it came out pretty good.

    Added a GPU cover for the top of my two EVGA 960 FTW video cards and added the second rad to the front
    after modding the PSU shroud to make room up front all done now I can complete my review of the case.
