Badass indeed. I just finished a watercooled build in a phantom as well, except it was a red/black theme. Great job with the runs too!

Cool. Surprised you didn't go with just plain white or red LEDs. Why blue?

That's why I don't buy them, to be honest. That, and the premium price tag. I could handle that if they made them with some more appealing colors though. I understand maintaining a brand image but... come on, Noctua!

 

Also, this is a nice rig. I know a lot of people think blue LEDs and stuff are tacky, but I like it. Did you have any trouble with the loop, OP?

We didn't take too many pictures but I can get some more if people are interested: http://www.overclock.net/t/1456276/build-log-roger-ii

I'm not completely sold on the lighting but then again I've always been picky about lighting, especially UV.

sick build. hows the 820? im using the 630 and love it

To build in? It was OK but we ran into a few technical difficulties that stopped us (Components not being compatible with the case+leaky 45 degree rotary fitting). LOVE the cable management space in the back though. The big window+built in lighting and fan controller makes it a REALLY awesome deal! But when your talking about a $200+ case...haha

That build is baller.
