Default GUREN KNIGHTMARE HAF X - first watercooling build

Hi guys, i'm new to the forum, i'm from italy (sorry for my poor english) and i've just completed "the first phase" of my first watercooled build, hope you like it
I'm thinking to make some modification in the future, such as replace the motherboard (AsRock P67 Professional is a great card btw) and take a new EVGA Z77 if a fullcover block will be available. I need also a Bitspower black valve and a T matte black adapter to replace the one i have now (silver and black nickel that doesn't looks great with the other matte black fittings).
Pls leave a comment or any kind of suggestion are highly appreciated, thank you very much

let's start!

Very cool! That's quite a bit of radiators you packed in and around that HAF X. If you feel so inclined, that'd be a great addition to our 20th Anniversary photo site. Be a Part of Our History - Cooler Master

Very nice! I love the Lamptron Fan Controller display in red thats awesome! Just wondering obviously this is the video card you used:

EVGA GTX580

But does it come with that sweet ass backplate?!

Also have you looked into this side panel? It'd show off more of your insides!

Haf X Side Panel

Cheers,
Chomie.

here's some pics of the res+ek dual top+2 pmp400 with koolance heatsink (i have to cut one side of the metal body for fit the 2 pumps) and i've also added two temperature sensors under the pumps (Laing DDC get's hot when flow rates is high).

hi chomie, thank you

yeah the video card are EVGA 580GTX Hydrocopper 2 (1,5gb version, not 3gb), and yes, the backplate is included :
EVGA | Products

i've bought them on july 2011

the side panel with big window is nice, but now with the side 200mm fan i get a good internal airflow for cooling the motherboard, that get a little hot when i remove the sidepanel with the fan.

That looks very awesome. I'm very much a fan of the minimal type cases - but something about this looks very futuristic.
