Paul,

Really, really like the no-nonsense white case, and your cable management is impeccable.

If it was mine, I'd be tempted to go to the local appliance repair shop and get a nice chrome badge...say Frigidaire or Maytag.

Better yet -- Speed Queen. (A highly regarded brand of commercial coin-op washing machines and dryers)

@Alan, thanks for the kind words, this Kraken x60 you speak of, is this any better than the new Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme I was looking at? I suspect they all do pretty much the same job.

@ Lady F, lol at the name change, thing is with a white case it shows up the wires even more than a black one, I felt I had to get it right. BTW the screw head is black, the casing of the PSU is in a matt paint but the screw has a slight shine to it and I believe it was a light reflection that made it appear like that.

@Gary, yeah it's a 140mm fan that you can adjust the angle on to blow air at your GPU or PSU or whatever you like. You can also fit a 2nd one below.
Paul,
I have run (1) H50 (1) H100 (2) 2.0 Extreme's and (1) X60 Kraken. They are all excellent at what they are. The 2.0 Extreme's I like for the thicker than H100 240mm rad. more surface area better cooling. To that extreme (pun intended) the 280mm X60 uses two 140mm fans and in the NZXT case line up they fit like gloves and in yours you may also be able to run in push pull.

Ok thanks Alan, I will give that one some serious thought, yeah the 140mm fans fit great in the roof and I am sure I could run push pull no problem at all.

Depends on the case, Gary. Some are built for it (like Paul's), some have to be modded to do it and there is always the option to mount 1 up top and one externally on the back. That's what the rubber gromets are really for on the rear of the case. External rads are usually more efficient than internal ones. Paul's case is made to pull the bottom drive cage out and it is perfectly set up to put a 240mm rad there. He can also put a 360 or even a 480 up top, although that's a tight fit. His case was built for 140mm fans up top, which means he can easily fit a 280mm rad or even a 420mm rad in the top.
