Looking over the case, it is noted that putting water-cooling in this case is simple, very simple. My previous setup was basically thrown inside and ran like that, and was able to achieve pretty good temps. This time I decided to go with higher quality parts, and simply go all out on the case and modify it not only for performance, but for ease of use. It is pretty easy to spot the weak spots in the case. The mounting of the Maze2 is pretty bad, as the nylon bolts are not ideal in my opinion. Replacing them with metal bolts solves that problem, but introduces the fact that installing the maze2 involves running a nut down a bolt that is far too close to the outlet barb. Another problem the comes up is the front bezel; While not the worst I've seen when considering it is not intended for water-cooling, but for air-cooling. Introducing a huge radiator in the front of the case is... less than ideal. The doors on the side are a pain in the ass to say the least, the process of removing them is downright tedious. While some suggest bending the clip's on the door, this is not the most ideal solution to me. This case is heavy, heavy as hell. While I cannot really reduce the weight all that much, I can definitely make it easier to move around (p.s. don’t flood me with "ITS A FULL TOWER" in my email box please, thnx). One of the biggest gripes I have with this case is that it is very ugly. I did not like the looks of the case much at all, and thought it could be improved greatly.
