At the top and bottom of the case. There is enough room at the bottom (barely) to fit between the psu and frame. Then the box for the cathode tubes I just zip ties to the back of the case where the space for a tube resevoir would go.

Thanks. And for wiring I actually got a sleeping set and worked them over the existing component wires. Want to get a modular pay to get individual sleeved wires

Exactly my reasoning. You can grab a Samsung 250gb Pro for $100 why would I go HDD to run a system?? I only use about 20gbs of it anyways. As for the Pentium. Cheapest Pentium Mobo combo with 3.0 usb and HDMI on board was $120. Got biostar with 2x 3.0 and HDMI for $80 plus expansion card to grab 4x more 3.0 via backplate on card and front head female on card to plug in USB for front headers that came with case. Yeah it runs like a laptop chip at 2.0 (pushing it), but for what I use it for, that's plenty. I added a 40mm fan (rigged' it!) atop the heat sink and 2x80mm in the back to OC the small chip at average speed of 1.7ghz. LED strip added. Gots to have the LEDs.

Plan to use the Ttake 500 once I upgrade main desktops PSU to full modular over 650w

Yeah. Waiting for build 3 to upgrade desktop PSU. Will take the Ttake 500 and swap it for the cheapo.

Never looked twice to be honest. Took a little while to configure correctly. Is it worth looking into due to how deep my library data has gotten? Don't want to waste time for minimal difference especially if it will erase current user data.

Preciate it.

I think I will take the top 2 140m fans off the top and take one of the two 120 out of the pull side of the rad and put the 140 on the bottom. Seemed to run better with only back fan pushing out of the case. I flipped the 2 140 fans to pull air in, and this was better than out. IDK I hate having spare parts around that I can use, especially since I can only use the deep silence 140s on top to use both. Maybe I just take one down to the bottom, flip the other at the top to pull heat out and take out the crap 120s on the bottom and the bottom 120 on the pull side of the rad. Lots of options with now over 10 case fans.

Yeah. Found this. Would look bad. Was hoping for a full plate to take on VGA water cooling. The inly other thing I can think of is mosfet/chipset. My system temp seems to be running higher when relating to temp of cpu. It got up to 40 yesterday under pretty stout loading. Would you ever justify mosfet/chipset cooling? If so, how the h*** do you get it to match your board?

Took a second look at the aesthetics. Added quite a bit including updated GPU (still feel like this was not necessary for the use but just had to do it). Re-wired everything and added blue cable sleeves. 2x blue cold cathodes and replaced back fan with a blue led fan. Looks a lot better, but always adding something. Wanted to ask, I know water cooling the GPU would be pointless, but can't shake the urge to want to do this if for anything to make it look cool. Do you know what I can use as a block? Can't find an answer for this anywhere.

Right?! Fios is insane. Although setting up Linksys AC1200 sucked. Have to bridge mode it and use Fios crappy interface.

See update. Updated GPU. Frankly I didn't need it, but it just didn't look right. As for cable management. Let me tell ya, that is stupid hard to accomplish, especially since my 2 year old gets all up in there when i try to re route it. Next piece will def. be a full modular PSU. Got some blue sleeves and rewired the whole thing and replaced back fan with another (blue LED). Added cold cathode x2 that are blue. Added another 1TB 3.5 (have 1117 movies, 2409 TV shows, 180 music videos, 24000 songs and 10000 photos). Anyways thanks for the post, peer pressure to justify GPU upgrade if anything.

Hehe... See update. These replies were getting to me. But didn't go too overboard. Back out of of GTX 960 4gb and settled for the 750 ti FTW 2gb.

Would have opted for i5 and cut back to a 3gb card (I admit, I am in the minority on GPUs since I do little gaming. More of a cut the cord and stream to 4 smaller builds). Props: wiring is pristine (seriously). Nice to see a 128 SSD. (easy to over do these then to realize you, your mom, your wife and your gf don't have that many apps/programs. I got like 6 TB of HDD, but once again, I watch a ton of media. Advice: get out of the closed water cooling system sooner rather than later. Took me 3 months and a busted H100i to figure this out. XSPC Raystorm runs about $30 more for 240mm radiator kit. it runs on average 5 degrees cooler. with .3 ghz increase on CPU.

True. All that chedda and you got a closed system. Look. Props on the whole thing, trust me I would be happy to have this rig in my budget, but man you got to finish the race. Freakin take that thing off, shoot it and go and grab a DIY kit (I got XSPC Raystorm w/ 240 mm radiator) grab some tubage, some coolant, 6 fittings or so and hell with your seemingly budget, a GPU bracket, RAM bracket, anything else bracket you can find and rename this thing PC Envy. Also, what's going on with Wireless adapter? You can't be running this thing on wifi right? Anyways... Like to see that something like this is out there.
