mav2000, you were my second choice for MOTM. Great work.

Also, I wish I had bought a ATCS 840 back when CM was selling refurbished ones.

Rest in peace, Syrillian.

Thanks man. I guess it's EOL now, so it's going to be far more difficult to get one. Great case which needs only a few minor adjustments.

Hey everybody!

Me and my ego just wanted to share some effects of the work I done recently to my rig. HERE is a permalink to the initial build that I did a year ago. Over the year I did several mods and upgares. Just finished putting everything back together and that's how it looks now:



























I'm going to start a full LOG for this built - link in Sig - all comments, ideas or critique will be helpful. THNX!

Does anyone have a video or instructions on how to put the case back together? Getting it back from powder coating this week and want to make sure I don't screw it up!

Thanks!

I don't think there is such a thing. But no worries, there are enough people from all around the world than help you fairly quickly should you run into a problem.

The only thing that I have to help you now is a series of detail shots from a german review.

Just because you are paranoid, don't mean that people aren't out to get you!

Here is a question for you guys that have replaced the top two 200mm fans. I like this case and I've owned it for about 2 years now, but it is constantly making vibration noises. I usually remedy this by a soft blow to the offending area and it goes away for a minute, a week, a month, its completely random for how long it goes away. I've tried everything I can think of, insulation, silicone dampening material for the screws etc...

The vibration is absolutely centered around the two 200mm fans. Recently the fans have exhibited a pulsing or wheezing rhythm (I know its hard to describe). I've about had it with this case, but I was thinking about replacing the top fans with 3 120mm fans. Before I spend 40-50$ on new fans, I was wondering has anyone else experienced vibrations or changed the fans and had success? Thanks guys

I recently had an issue with one of the top 230's. It started running "uneven" and it caused a slight vibration. Barely, but noticeable. I was planning to replace all the original 230's to LED versions anyways, so I did.

When I was taking everything apart I noticed that the black mesh covering the top fans was a little bend (probably my 18 moths old nephew) and that was most likely the cause of vibration. I gently straightened it out, put new fans in and there is no vibration at all now.

New fans might have fixed it, but I'm pretty sure if I would put the old fans in, the vibration would be gone after I fixed that metal mesh cover. Try that.
