    Steve, could you squeeze a half height lappy style drive in?

    Not sure Alan. But I just thought that I could use the top bay, that has the fan from the rad blocking about 1/3 of it, for the extra bay on top for access, that would leave the bottom bay for a DVD/CD. But I'd still like to place it inside the case somewhere other than ihe drive bays. I think.

    With just a little extra hose drape or some QD's the res. in the drive bay you can slip it out just enough to do water additions and changes.

    Steve- very nice rad choice, I am sorry,but I dont like the bay reservoir choice, its just my own oppinion. And hope it servers you well,but they are very hard to fill and drain...no offence.

    Not a problem Joey. That's what I didn't like about the kit. But, it was the only choice, so build a similar spec kit, would have cost much more. But, life is a compromise, to get something you want you have to give up some things you don't want to. But, is it a viable option to put the reservoir some place other in the bays, such as just above the floor?

    Aslong as the res is above the pump(not here of importance) but dont let it make your tubing to far,you will loose cooling

    Small tip Steve (and anyone else that may find this helpfull) If your gonna use clear distilled water,make sure you have enough killcoils. General rule is one per 1litre, so in my case for example, I used more then 2 and a half bottles of water,it worked out at around 1.8 litres, so I use 2 kill coils. Secondly,if possable put one kill koil in your res,and the other in the tubing behind the rad. But you can have both in the res.

    I'll admit, I had to Google "kill coil"... I've never had any experience with water cooling before. Found a rather amusing link in my search though: Petra's Tech Shop. Read the 'instructions and ingredients' section...

    Congrats! Post some pics, I am very eager to see how the build is going! And another very small tip, I think Michael (Terronium 12) will be able to back me up here, you will fill a res up to the top,start the pump and refill it up again, and when all is running smooth,and great you will notice after about 2 days the water in the res has dropped about to 3/4, don't worry,you dont have a leak,the radiator just had allot of air in ti and it is starting to get pushed out,so wait a week and fill it up again.


    And this part is only for Yussi, When are you gonna post those rig pics? Or should I come and take them myself! (or atleast chicken out and send someone to take the pics)
