Ok, back to more seXay images...

To mount my Rad Grill / Case / Fan / Radiator sandwich, I use our M3 x 35mm length socket head stainless steel screws. These fit perfectly without the worry of piercing your radiator fins.

Hmm...personally I would put filters in there to stop stuff from falling INTO the PC when it is off. Dust and such.

@ Digikid, you can add your own filters. I personally keep my rigs running 24/7 and never set anything on the top.

fyi: in case anyone wondered..

I was going to set-up the fans in Pushing configuration as illustrated in photo of radiator outside the case, but decided later they would work more efficiently Pulling because of the circular openings in the rad grill design. I now see that posting that photo led to confusion, sorry! It was a long day yesterday. I've heard so many different opinions on which approach is better. The truth is everyone's hardware components, fans, and environment is different. What may work for them, may not work for you. If you're really curious, then try out each approach and record both your internal and external temperature and compare :)

@ martin_metal88, I do commissioned custom cases for a living. There is special plans for this one

@ HumorusPrawn, uniformed colors bore me, and these colors contrast nicely.
