    Who says you cant run a H115i laying on top of your case, works just as good like this as it did in the case!

    280 Rad is in there tighter than a goats bum around lonely ranchers. Have shorter extensions on the way to pull the inside of the elbows closer to the fan. I really wanted the fittings on the opposite end but there was just no way to get them in there. May have worked with a 260 Rad but I needed at least one beefy rad for the heat load.

    Had to put the fittings for the 360 on the bottom, too tight up top. A little dusty ATM. As you can see Im getting some filtration in the bottom where the hot swap bays have been removed. I have no use for those bays. Tried to put another Rad down there but just too tight, Could probably get a slim rad but no fans.

    Where are the Fans for the 360 you ask? They are on the outside. I pulled the filter out of the outside and the 120MM fans just do fit in there. Already had one wise crack, you have them in backwards......No I have them to pull air through the rad. Have seen a lot of people over the years worry more about looks than functionality and have them set up with the pretty side out then cant figure out why case temps are hotter, Duh huh, you are blowing the heat load from the radiator right into your case simply creating an ever increasing delta. Ill get some stickers to cover the ugly Fan ratings on the back of the fans, otherwise they look fine. Im intending on pulling the grates out of this and the top cover and painting them red too.

    Fill port didnt work work out exactly as planned, There is a metal plate hiding in there. Longer double male connecter so it will sit flush and the extender can come out. This will work in the mean time if it doesnt get here before Im ready to fill and leak test. Had the fill port been 5mm longer the nut wound have went on the bottom.

    Smaller EK Xres revo 100 is about all that would fit and still be able to keep it in the case. Its sporting a PWM D5 pump so it shouldn't be an issue. If I need more I'm going with a dual D5s in series and taking the reservoir outside the case.

    This looked like some bada$$ lighting. Will be one of the last things to go in. I swore I was going to keep this build simple. Funny how that never works out. Had the CPU held an OC at 4.6 Ghz and the temps stayed reasonable I would have left it alone. But at 1.375Vcore and running real bench the CPU temps creep up FAST! May just be the IHS as its instant from 30C to 80C, like 5 seconds after hitting all cores to 100% load. If I back off the Vcore and the clock it still gets to 70C! If this doesnt work it will be delidding time on the CPU.

Im thinking Saturday afternoon, overnight-er that night into Sunday will be the day of reckoning. Just gathering up what you need is a PITA. Not like Home Depot where you can run out and grab something.

    Of course changing my mind after a part has already been ordered, arrives then before it even gets here Ive ordered something different. Worse than an old Italian lady picking out curtains and yelling at you for not staying on the plastic carpet runner!

    Im OCD when it comes to getting something I started finished. Some folks leave projects going on for months on end, some start and never finish. Me, It drives me nuts until its done.

    Justin,
    Awesome build, the 540 has been my favorite case of all time, I recently got a 740 which is nicer except you cannot put fans in front of radiator outside of case like you can with the 540 if you remove the filter, I have stuck with AIO in the case for ease of build but these cases are great, very easy to build in unless you go custom loop
    I am really like the M8E Assembly but i had already purchased an Extreme before the Assembly was released
    looking forward to see your build completed

    I have a nice Lian Li 343B in the basement that is even easier to build in. Room out the wazoo and more acceesories to set it up just how you want to on both sides. This one had Two Black Ice extreme rads, 240 in the roof and 360 in the front. As always HOT AIR GOING OUT OF THE CASE, NOT IN IT!!I Two CPU blocks, Two GPU blocks (8800GTX) and blocks on both the north and south bridges. Was going to just do a refesh on that case but as you get to be an old fart like me you appreciate compact. I wanted this one on my desk not on a separate table. I looked for a long time and when I came across the 540 I fell in love.

    Here are a few pics of my old rig with the Lian Li 343B. I may resurect it with the next Generation after X99 if I get feeling froggy. Very nice and modular case, just BIG! The two D5 pumps were sitting in the drive bays on the PSU side. Yes this is a dual CPU set up!

    More Hardware pRon.

    EK Maximus Extreme Full cover block came in today. I was torn between going with the clear or acetyl top then after looking at the sample pics over and over I just decided the black with red fittings just suited the look better.

    Love the nice and shiny blocks, makes the corsair blocks look pretty sad.

    OK, shut down until further notice. Corsair H115i is now back in its box and will be looking for a new home. *Graphics cards pulled and the madness has begun. One block on, one to go. I was a bit surprised that there is very little done on the memory chips. Two of them have nothing at all and the other 6 has what appears to be a crappy attempt at a heat spreader. That barely touches the edges of the rest of the chips. *I'll take pics as I'm doing the next card. I left the original back plate on but removed the UPC stickers that were an eye sore.


    SLI Block





    One Down one to go
