Good looking tower mate, very neat.

How do you find the Emermax, Ive heard pretty good reviews about them
Thanks guys.

The ELC240 was very easy to work with, the only fiddly bit was mounting up the CPU block due to its backplate having no tape or anything to keep it on the board. Apart from that I can't really comment since this is honestly the first all-in-one water loop I have used in a build so I have nothing to compare it to. It is very quiet though, both at idle and under load, and it keeps temps in check to the tune of 70degC or so under full load in Prime95 at the 4670K's stock clocks. From memory it has a 5yr warranty on it, too, which is awesome unless I'm wrong :) (it's very late)

Having said all that, I'm going to try a Swiftech H220 or H320 the next time a build calls for watercooling. They apparently have a much stronger pump and I have read that you keep the warranty even if you cut into the tubing and extend the loop.

Just a touch over $2000 in parts, $2100+ including shipping. Pretty happy with how it turned out given the sleeved cables and lighting were pretty much the only non-performance-oriented purchases.
