I would do this...but my pump is a ehiem 1048. It would struggle to get the water that high in the system.
The window was purchased. The whole case side comes pre windowed.

If you look at the last pic....you can almost make out where my "fill/bleed" tube is..it was rather easy to fill. Took about 20 minutes to fill and about an hour to bleed.

Nice work.
If I was you I would put a 1" or so shroud between each fan and the HC (should be enough room in your case to do that). Could lower your temps a couple more degrees...

Good work, clean and all. A good example of "how it should be done". Shows people that watercooling is nice & easy.

The heatercore is the one sold by D-Tek, or at least it's the exact same model.
TheWiz: you're not using 100% of your heatercore yet. You'll benefit *a lot* from shrouding your fans. My bets go on a few °C down...
