assembled the radiator and fans for a push pull setup.you might notice that the inner fans are slightly lower than the outer fans. This is to accommodate my gtx 465 which barely fits (thats how small my case is !) of course, these cables will be sleeved.. might give daz's new sleeves a try although I think I still have some mdpc-x leftovers.

had to remove the fan sticker for painting and I actually made one out of printing paper but removed it to daisy chain two fans together by soldering it straight on the fan pcb(one set of cables for fans on each side of the rad)

copper heatsinks for chipset and VRMs which is necessary since the vrms on the dfi gets hot even on idle.
