You can read all about it here... http://virtualrain.blogspot.com/

This case has been great to work with. The side fan tray door is ideal for mounting a pair of low-profile rads. 8)

Note that I built a mock computer out of wood for doing a proof-of-concept, tubing, and leak testing.

Note, my wooden motherboard and expansion cards fit well... I just hope I don't run into some of the same issues other owners have had when it comes to mounting the actual electronics inside! :?:

The blog has more pics and info on some of the other mods I made to the case... http://virtualrain.blogspot.com/

Stay tuned for more!

I'm also hoping to get my 830 WC-setup ready, but I need a custom waterblock and that's quite difficult for me as I don't have any engineering experience :)

Which rads are you using? I tried doing the same thing with a BIP II and Scythe-F fans, but the holes in the radiator wouldnt line up with the holes in the fans. Did you mod the rad/fan to be able to get the rad to mount onto the bracket?

Hi sorry I haven't been around for a while...

The rads I'm using are the BI GTs... dual 240's. They are the only rads thin enough to be sandwiched between the fans in the side door and the cards in the MOBO. These rads have mounting holes on both sides for standard 120mm fans but since I'm using 140mm fans, I had to drill custom holes in the fans attach them to the rads first and then mount the whole fan pair + rad assembly into the door.

For tubing, I'm using Masterkleer 7/16"

@Virtualrain.... maybe you can offer some suggestions on how I should approach this build.  I like your idea of installing the radiator on to the side
