Aplus CS-Blockbuster Storm

the Aplus CS-Blockbuster is a X-QPack clone.
I call a X-QPack my own, but for this mod I wanted the Aplus CS-Blockbuster
it's the first time I've finished a case mod, since years! and after a long time my mainrig is aircooled

Components:

Aplus CS-Blockbuster
Enermax Liberty 550W
Abit AN-M2HD
AMD X2 5000+ BlackEdition
Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme
MDT DDR2-800 4GB
Zotac 8800GT Amp Edition
Creative X-FI
Samsung SATA HDD 2x500GB
Samsung SATA DVD-RW

First some pics of the CPU and the 8800GT

there are three switches at the back of the case
1. fan (top and back) voltage: 5V/12V
2. turn on/off top fan
3. turn on/off fan LEDs and the small display in the front, that shows the casetemp
I added a eSATA port to the I/O-shield
some cuttings to the case and to the cpu heatsink (just the corner next to the PSU, 20 fins from the top, around 5mm)
and I found a new place for the second HDD

Hello,

I'm new here and sorry I bring up this old post again, but I have a question about this mod.

I bought myself a case like this (the Apevia X-Qpack2, which is a case that's about just the same, except for the outside looks, but internally it's just the same). And I'm going to use my Ultra 120 Extreme in it. Now the case didn't arrive yet, and there's 1 thing I'd like to know before my stuff arrives.

I see you managed to put the thermalright ultra 120 extreme inside this case, and put on a fan. But is it possible to make a push-pull (2 fans) confoguration with this cooler and case?

Thx
