Actually the Ocz PSu came that way. I'll take a closer look at it and let you know.

Lol. I haven't had a chance to rig up a small uv light to highlight the gpu water block yet.

Did you buy it new? If so then it's not stainless steel. Even if it's not it could be conductive so keep that in mind.

it won't fit any other way :(. Although I do have the rear fan as an intake, and the cpu is pulling the air up. So it does quite a good job at keeping it cool.

Man I love Lian-Li cases!!!! You could almost fit one of those passive tower WC kits inside what's left after you've got all of your kit installed..... :)

I'm guessing that the cpu cooler won't fit front-back with the chipset cooler installed.

Did you notice any improvement with the OCZ mem cooler? I got one for christmas, but it didn't seem to get me any higher mem settings.

I haven't really tested my memory much, so i really don't know if it helped. I keep them at @ 5-4-3-4, 500MHZ with 2.08V. So not too much heat coming from the mem.

The memory is Team Xtreem PC2-6400 btw.
