    Ahh! My chipset is watercooled. I'm composing an article that will have a better shot of it.

    I moved the 120mm from the back, relocated it to my upper rad pulling air out and added a second 120mm. Load on 8 cores before was approaching 60C with Prime95 running on all cores. Now it's just a smidge less at 59C. Still very quet though. Nothing like the ThermalTake tornado.
    System: ASRock P67 Extreme6, i7-2600k @ 4.6 GHz, 16GiB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600, Galaxy GTX 570 & EVGA GTX570 in SLI @ stock, 120GB Corsair F120 SSD for Win 7 Pro x64, WD Caviar Black 1 TB for everything else, Lite-On Dual layer DVDRW, Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1200W PSU, CM690 II advanced case.
    Accessories: ACER 23" WS LCD + ACER 21" WS for web/TS/etc. DIY 4-way monitor stand. Logitech G35 headset, Idelazon Fang keypad, Logitech G9 mouse, Zalman FPS Gun mouse, Logitech Extreme 3D Pro joystick, momo racing wheel w/ pedals.
    Water Cooling : Replumbed to one single loop. Apogee GTZ CPU block, MCR220 w/ 2x Panaflo 120x38 'M's, MCR220 w/ 2x Panaflo 120x38 'H's, MCP350 w/ bored over Alphacoool top. MCP220 drive with second MCP350 in series w/first. 2x MCW60 GPU blocks Temps: TBD

    I'm hoping to do a full water cooling setup in this case very soon. I want to keep this 930 running at at least 4.2GHz throughout the summer. So far it's been stable but who knows once temps rise another 30F.

    A wise purchase it will be. It has made it through two other case reviews, one of which that's a full tower to publish Monday. There was at least one thing (if not more) that made me keep the water cooled system in this one. Superb case, I couldn't be happier with it.

    Am about to buy a 120.2 rad to go in the bottom bay to add to the reserator as it doesn't quite fulfil my cooling needs - nearly but not quite

    I don't see why not. Haven't tried one, but it's a 120mm fan hole. You can only go so wrong there.

    You got a GPU bracket too eh?

    I couldn't get mine to clamp my cards, and it just seemed like a waste of room.
