Paul, that really does look great I have been watching mine and with the psu in upside down it seemed to get a warm spot between the graphics card and hard drive cage. So I flipped the psu over, threw a fan in the bottom to draw in and turned the pump around. I think that should do the trick. When I get the better fans for the rad, I will add another fan up top for out take.

Thanks Guys.

@Doug, I always have my PSU with the fan at the bottom, I think it's best that way, but as long as it's not gonna suck a load of dust in if it was on the floor say. My PC is up on top with me so it's fine. Looks good Doug anyway, nice cooler

I certainly would have Gary, shame you don't live a little closer, I expect the shipping would cost more than buying a new case lol.

Thats one of the reason's i got rid of my Crabide 500r. The hot pocket behind the optical bay's was pretty darn hot man and i could feel it through the case, Psu was face down too. I'm thinking it's due to the gpu's chucking their exhausted heat through the right side of the card's

I thought it might be from the card but it never did it before. It started when I add the 920 as intake and the psu upside down. It is not hot, just warmer than the rest of the case. Maybe adding a fan pulling out up top might help. Who knows but I decided I didn't like the upside down setup

As long as one of these wasn't inside your case, your probably fine.

then I would come back with this

So far it is working. I think the fan at the bottom made a difference as the psu was fan up for a while and when I added the 920 as intake is when it came about. I will still put another fan up top though.
