I don't plan on destorying my case to put a couple big ass rads in either. I'm planning to make use of the top 3 5" drive bays.
Maybe some black sleeving as accents on a few cables. I like your idea, can't stand not having a couple optical drives. Besides, I think TTL's front rad is so monolithic that it becomes more of a big black brick rather than something cool lookin. What color tubing/coolant do you plan on using? Can't wait for more updates!

Smile CPU Power Cable Sleeved!

So after about 4 hrs of play'n electrician I was able to put together my first completely custom cable.
This is an extra long 32" 8pin CPU power cable. I used 18awg white primary wire female ATX pins on both ends. The blue end goes to the main board to better match the main boards blue male connector. The black end goes to the PSU Seasonic Platinum 860.

I have it leaning up against 1 of 5 Feser Triebwerk 55mm thick fans.

Smile Front Radwich Setup

This update shows my plan for mounting my front rads
I had to cut a little bit at the bottom of the 5" drive bays to allow space for my rads


These next 3 shots show how the rads will be positioned






This shot shows the rails I'll be using to mount the rads


The rails will be J.B. Welded to these brackets that bolt to the rads sandwich assembly.

More updates after the J.B. Weld dries.

No, no, no, we don't use door shims to mount rads! That's a good idea for mock up, actually. I might "borrow" that on my next build.

Today I'm trying to finish J.B Welding the aluminum brackets for rads.
Time to start sleeving that rats nest of a front IO panel as well.

This project is coming along great Hooded! Very crafty place to mount your radiators. This this is going to have some massive cooling potential!

Nothing is in stone yet. I just found some other fans for he outside of the rads that will allow me to use my Feser Triebwerk 55mm fans in the center of the rads :)
