I love that you have that carpet cut out and the wood panel underneath for your rig. I'm guessing your PSU fan is mounted facing down?
Yea the power supply fan is facing down sucking air in and exhausting out the back.

Its $140 which is why I balked at first. Im glad I sold myself on it though. The thing is a beast. Literally. It weighs about 5lbs.

I just need to upgrade to the Deathadder 2013 mouse so I can complete my trinity of green.
$140 IS kind of steep for a keyboard....looks like it was worth it though. I'm going to investigate to see if they have any in blue.

You can't see it in the pics but I also have a second radiator on the floor on my case, a 240mm rad which is pushing air from case outward, I may end up changing it in the future to suck air in but I am too lazy to do it because it would involve me taking out my massive as water resevior, I totally under judged how big it would be and it's definitely a very snug fit.

I just love the attention to detail that is all. I have a buddy who messed up his rig because he built it with the PSU fan facing down and put it on some plush carpet he had in his living room. LMAO.
Anyway....I never really liked putting the PSU fan facing up and sucking air from inside the case and blowing it out. Granted it is sucking warmer air away from the components but it needlessly heats up the PSU for no reason IMHO.

You rich multi-monitor folks....pshhhh....:grin:
Those monitors costed me about 220 bucks total, I got them on clearance at BB, originally 170 a piece. I need two of them for when I work from home. AOC 22in 1080p IPS monitors.

Yeah....looking at your pics the reservoir is quite big. I can see it in the top right corner. Dude.....like I said before liquid cooling just looks so damn complicated. I want to though....because I live down in Arizona where the summer is like hell..LOL. Going to need to change my case too....ahhhh.....:smash:

I know all about Arizona heat I lived there until I was about 6.

On a side note, since we are all posting our rigs I think it would make sense to get a some steam invites going. Asc about to add you on steam now.

The 2012 Edition was Blue, but I dont think they sell it anymore. In 2013 Razer shifted all its peripherals to green to match their brand.

I think the master race folks crippled the website for a short period as it was just not loading at all for me, every other website was fine however.

Anyone going to get Dark Souls 2/Steam?
Or The New Borderlands/Steam?
You know actually I might get both. Never played Dark Souls 1....will I need to in order to play part 2?

Damn! That sucks. I would get the green one like you have, but with the blue LED fans on my rig my setup will look like a multi-colored UFO taking off. LOL.

You know I wanted to ask you what your average GPU temps are under load? Your case is sweet but it looks like a REALLY tight fight.
Each Component is vented independently and the case has tons of airflow. Here are some more pics. Ill get some temps for you shortly.


GPU and PSU Venting


Top of the case.



Case Rear


And as you saw in the other photos the CPU vents toward the other side.

Thanks.
Okay. I think it was just the angle that had me somewhat confused. That is some wild design work but it works. That is really cool.

Another thing I wanted to ask you. When you do the liquid cooling how often do you have to replace the water in the reservoir?
I'm still not entirely sure on how it all works. I'm a water cooling newb sorry.
I am going to change it every 6 months because I am anal, but you can do it annually. All it is is distilled water straight from the pharmacy with a killcoil which is a thin strip of silver that protects against algae growth.
