Hi cmbarba. Please read the reply I made to pedagogy. The dust filter does fit with the Shuriken 2 and there is no obstruction with the fan blades.

I've left the CPU dust filter in place. It does fit and there isn't any obstruction with the fan blades. Maybe the dust filter and CPU fan housing could be leaning against each other, which is quite hard to visually see, but I haven't had any issues. I've added another photo to the collection showing the CPU fan opening on the side panel for reference.

Awesome share. I've watched some of his videos. It does make sense what he says and that confirms the reason why I choose the blower style cooler

I plan on getting the ROCCAT TUSKO monitor bag to carry all my stuff around. I haven't got it yet so I can't comment on how good it is

Could you tell me what your voltage is set to? I would be aiming for around 4.0GHz as well

To be honest I don't have any good source that has done any testing over which cooler style is better. There are plenty of debates online on which style is better. I did see Jay2cents mention on youtube about using blower style coolers on his Node 202 build video even tho he didn't have one at the time. There are a few open air GPU coolers builds on this site as Jerome54 mentioned that you could check out. In my mind I just picked the GPU cooler that would work better in theory. Either way both styles will work so just pick the one that you prefer

I agree with you it does look out of place having AIO and a custom loop. I'm considering swapping in a single 360mm rad, or keeping the 120mm and getting a 280mm rad, and having the CPU and GPU in one loop. I wonder if I'll get better or worst temps tho? In theory I think having two separate loops will be better for cooling but maybe the larger radiator would compensate for that. Not exactly sure which root to go or just leave it as it is and live with the insanity. LOL
