Looks great. I can't really say I would have done anything different except maybe went with corsair SP120's just for looks. The one thing I like the most is how you modded the HDD trays to stay there but still house the radiator! :D

P.S. Sexy waterblock

Outstanding design and craftsmanship nice to see someone doing his best work and thanks for sharing. That's pretty impressive it being your first mod. Do you have access to a machine shop?

Nope... Just a garage with all the tools ;) I did all the cuts with a Dremel zip disc and sanding bits.
