Default Clean Build on Corsair 800D

Hi all! Just completed my SB build... Tried to make as clean as possible. Should I put more lighting effects? At the moment the only lightsource comes from the fans on the top part I did OC to get it running at 4.5 stable and reasonable temp 40 - 60 max. Hanging H70 on the top, I guess better temp and smoother fluid running through the pipes than vertical.

Main Specs:
- i7 2600k @ 4.5GHz
- Corsair Dominator DDR3 8GB 1600MHz
- Sabertooth P67
- ATI Radeon HD 6970
- OCZ Vertex 2 160GB
- Plextor DVD-RW
- Seasonic X-760W
- Corsair 800D

At first, thought Water Cooling, but not for now...
Cooling specs:
- Corsair H70 (fans replaced by Sanyo Denki SanAce)
- Corsair AirFlow Pro
- Enermax Everest
- Noctua NF-P14 (reversed)
- Aerocool Touch 1000

Nice looking build. Personally I don't think it needs any more lighting.

Thanks Guys, yeah, I don't think I need more lighting there, as I usually leave my desktop on at night, I don't want to disturb my nap.

This is quite possibly one of the cleanest builds I've ever seen!

One question though: Why did you place the H70 on the top exhaust, and not on the back?

Well, I did that as the fluid spreads evenly through the fins, smoother sound, better temp; just like the regular radiator setup.
