Default Diagram for TT Armor Case with Custom Water Cooling. Coments Please

Here's the schematics for my plans on my new water cooling system arriving in about a week. I was going to go with having the rad on the outside, but decided that inside would be best for appearance. Plus it being outside could be dangerous.

All the tubing is half inch so i may need to reverse the rad/resivior so that the hoses don't kink.

Also, the fan above the CPU is connected to a heat sync that cools the NB and SB on my Striker Extreme, and I'd prefer it remained there. Also, the fan in the upper left hand corner is actually on the inside, couldn't do that in the diagram because of the PSU/HDD Cage block.

Ultimately the GPU (8800GTX) will also be WCed by the same loop. Well, comments or changes that you'd make?

I've already received the system and assembled it months ago. It's the water cooling system that's new.

I meant the water cooling setup, how the things are arranged.

Looks nice. Maybe you'd want your CPU Fan to point to the right .

Take a look at the pics for a Striker Extreme :-P There is no heat sync on the right and the one on the left is inaccessible. It's not a CPU fan, but a fan by the CPU.

i dont know water cooling for computers.
but wouldnt the cool water line need to come from the radiator? like a car?
ie the blue line would connect to the bottom (or where ever) of the radiator instead of the resivoir (hot in from cpu/cold out thru pump back to cpu) and the resivoir would connect solely to the radiator? the resivoir itself doesnt do any kind of cooling, it just holds the fluid, so cool liquid actually wont be coming from there.
this is my idea of how it would work anyway. thats how cars work.

i say bring cool air into the radiators, not hot air from the case into them...then use the rear fan as an exhaust.
