I have to agree on losing the RAM cooler, but more from an aesthetics perspective than anything else. It makes the entire rig look busier than it needs to with little practical difference being made.

Otherwise I guess I would have to ask why you would go with a 900D for hardware like that. You could probably have gotten all of that into a more sensible case OR gone with a custom loop that would have looked WAY better. I get the whole changing hardware a lot thing (sort of... X58 doesn't seem like EVERYTHING gets changed out frequently x-p), but there is almost none of the potential of this case being used. Just seems like excess purely for the sake of excess. Don't get me wrong though, apart from the RAM cooler it LOOKS pretty good actually, and those temps are lovely on your hardware as well.

the ram cooler is no more , all though i do like the blue accent on top of the ram.


i use to have the 800d and things got a little cramped plus my brother wanted a new case so i gave him that.

so i thought id upgrade the case and then do my own water cooling loop , that didn't pan out but the case did get a upgrade.

as for the x58 its still my favourite board, iv had 2 or 3 other systems in this case since i got it and a few different graphics cards (gtx465's, 5870's 680's 780's) . so for me the full loop just didn't make sense

folding is live for team 98860 hitting around 220k-330k ppd

closed loops are just simple and gets good results, the gtx 680's fully loaded are hitting 43 degrees.
Understandable, but if you like liquid cooling I personally would think it would be easier to have a nice loop and just get different water blocks when you change parts.
