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.

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

Does this case play nicely with the Corsair H50?

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.
