Nice box, simple little water cooling system and plenty of room to work.

Looks good and I bet fly's along effortlessly as well.

Just a question; isn't that back exhaust fan counter-intuitive?  The h100i at the top should create plenty of airflow - unless you use it to push air into the case, but that'd be hot air...  Otherwise it may just be messing with the airflow, plus you could be pulling in dust everywhere. (generally a positive pressure is recommended, pulling air in through a filtered intake)

The back exhaust was traditionally placed there to pull the air off the cpu heatsink...but that's the past now :)

By the by, I went the water-way at the last update, too.  h80i .  Love it.   :D Very effective.

I built system with directed flow ( see pic #1 ) it works great with the ( Fractal Design R2 Silent Fans ) as there are
No fans in the front of the case it uses a Zone Design ( See pic #2 ) of Airflow

Totally Recommend Corsair 800D Obsidian Case and the Fractal Design R2 Silent Fans 120mm & 140mm
