Well, just waiting on a couple other small items to arrive then it'll be ready for leak testing, I could do it now but I may still make a couple of small changes and I want to be sure of everything before I fill 'er up

I managed to get everything to fit inside with the side panel closed which was trickier than I expected and I still want to do some closer mearsuring to see if I can shave a few inches of tubing off here and there. I sorta wish I stayed with 3/8" tubing and fittings because squeezing 1/2" in the Typhoon 3 was a challenge, but I'm still pretty happy with it overall.

I'm open to any suggestions or criticisms you guys have

How does that tubing bend when you close the panel? Any chance of kinks?

I was wondering the same thing. That is one beast of a machine.

I was just wondering.. myself ^.

Kruz why not use a rad box and be safe..

Though Kruz.. looks sexy.. red.. my fav. :p .. lol

Oh sorry one more thing Kruz.. why have the rad push hot air inside the case, isn't it supposed to be push air outside..

I guess that is one Baby Head approved build :D

Nope, no kinks, that was the challenge but the Bitspower rotary fittings for the GPU solved that, the lower side panel rad tube just tucks in when closed, I have to give a little lift to the top side panel rad tube so it doesn't kink but other than that, no problems.

Rads should never push hot air inside a case. If there is hot air coming out of your rad you have insufficient cooling, you need more rads.

I really wanted to keep it internal....as for the push?...have a look here and you'll know..
Now THIS is what I call air cooling!

This is true, however, there is already a 120.3 with push pull at the top of the case so it is sucking air out, the ambient temp in the basement is about 67 (even in the winter) so the air being pulled in from the side going through the rad will be cool air and being sucked out the top and back. If I don't like the temps I'll switch it but I don't think it'll be an issue.

Yea most basements are usually cool.. I remember one time I clocked my e8400 to 3.5ghz in summer time in the basement on air cooling, with temps not going above 40C on full load.

So Kruz.. how much did it cost you in total.. please.. :)
