    so you run watercooling and u still use fans?

    edit: nvm, but still you really dont need 3 fans on a radiator, one should do you good, i used to have 3 fans on mine and then i took them off and my temps were about the same as if i just had stock cooling, but after i put just one fan back on my radiator my temps droped to the same temps as if i had all three on there

    hey did you mod the hard drive compartment and PSU area?
    Because I never see a case that design to hold a PSU and HDD like that.

    Nope, at first I couldn't locate your PSU until took a close look at the HDD bracket and there it is tucked beside the HDD.
