Good luck with it!
Clear tubing. I like the look of coolant inside clear tubing and reservoirs rather than colored tubing, and there's more options. Because the case is orangish, the blue might make a good contrast because they are color negatives of each other. I'm thinking white will probably win out though.

While hard tubing would be cool, it's beyond my time capability right now.

I was actually wondering if it would be feasible to put copper hardware in that build that's been flamed for the 'rainbow patina' effect.
There shouldn't be any fans visible through the side panel. I'll put a Gentle Typhoon up top for exhaust and airflow over the VRM area while the Silverstone 180's are buried under the rad and not visible.

As for flame patina'd copper, that's a cool idea but it might be a bit much for this color of case. And again, beyond what time I've got to put in this bad boy right now.

I just realized I've got one week until Borderlands 2 launch. If my oldest boy gets home soon, I might get him to help drain my loop tonight and see if the mobo will fit.
