i might mount it on the inside. dont sound like a bad idea. but then it would be hard to fill. but then i could always buy a reservoir.

how do the cables look?

7.5 maybe 8/10

You have some annoying small stray wires all over the place, tidy those together and tuck them out of site. And buy a black Sata cable, the yellow one is just distracting.

Here's what my case looks like now with my new card. I couldn't do much better because of the bottom mounted PSU and the length of the wires.

not too bad, but i give you a 6/10 clean up those wires beside the HDD bays and possibly route them under the mobo tray if possible.

They should have them but i would check out some local comp stores first,Might save you a couple bucks.

I had to order my 12v online as none of the stores around here carried it


Heres my very last attempt at this crap as i'm not even gonna bother trying to get it any cleaner.

Put in an ocz vendetta 2 and removed my zotac 9800gt as i'm thinking of selling it.
