V8 works great... IMO its the best cooler you can buy cause its not awefull looking like the Noctua and it performs really well. performance + looks = winner

Nice build! The interior paint job looks very sharp and it is obvious you put a lot of time and effort into a great job!

Very nice. What steps did you take to paint the interior? What paint did you use?

yeah it does look cooler than any other cooler on the market but it's just a bit overpriced, i would rather get the CC or the dark knight anyday especially since CC comes with tx-2 already. And all three cooler perform very closely anyway.

Wow that is beautiful. What case is that? I like the black paint job and I like the blue LED fans.

sorry i thought the sentence sounded cooler that way

love the paint job, it's as if the black interior takes away the clutterness of the computers cables, even though your cable management is awesome you can tell it still has that effect.
