I'm going to put the pump on it's side so the output is pointing up. Then i can fit a 90' compression fitting on the bottom of the res and drop it down a bit. Another 90' fitting on top and that'll free up a lot of space for the slim 240 rad and slim fans up top. Then i'm going to slot another slim 240 rad on the front, not sure if there's gonna be any fans in the front or not depending on space. I should be able to get the same slim fans in there.

Then i can start thinking about cable sleeving. I have all the sleeving but no tools. It's all gonna be done in a blue dense cable sleeving. 

I also want to make a 90' sheet of alluminium to slot over the psu and cover all the way to the edge of the hdd enclosure to hide all the cables, pump, cathode boxes and the bottom of the res. Although i did think about having the res mounted horizontally along that cover. Haven't really decided yet.

Once i have all that sorted i want to get some blocks for the motherboard, get those modified ready for fitting. Also sort out another gpu to go in and waterblocks for those.

But the icing on the cake is going to be the side window. I want to get it very lightly smoked with a light etch of a madcatz logo. Considering there's a Sabertooth mobo in there it seems quite fitting. The logo should only be visible at certain angles and in certain light.

So much to do and so little time and money. lol
