Yeah, looks great. Was it difficult removing those parts to paint? The u channels really did put a nice touch on it.

actually no Bitfenix made it really easy to do so there are just little tabs under all of the mesh strips and the mesh fan exhaust on top the same way. the Bitfenix logo on the front was also really easy there are just 2 clips holding it on. Bitfenix made it like this because they are planning to if they havent already are going to start selling pre colored strips and bitfenix logos for the shinobi but not the big exhaust on top but jusr be careful when bending the tabs back as they can break easily 3-4 of mine broke which is ok since there is like 8 for each strip so they all went back on just fine

Maybe one day when I have more free time to tinker I'll give modding a shot. Looks great though. Any shots of the final product with your set up in it?

Hi everyone, I'm back.

Finally received the H80 and got everything together. I took some pictures showing the case's limitations.

The Corsair H100's rad not fitting on the front fan slots (too tall):


It's also impossible to have the fans and the rad one on each side of the grills. Because of these plastic "walls", you have to put everything inside (which is not possible either, as pointed out before):


For that reason, I think the top of the case ought to be rethought. BitFenix could also get rid of the "sandwich effect" in the process:


Another problem: if you don't use flat-head screws for the backside fan, you cannot properly close the door:

That's good to know. I've never used those holes to mount my fans, but I can see why it wouldn't work if you're using those screws for a radiator...I think. I'm going to have to check out my set up when I get home. I'm sure I mounted my h50 in there in one of them.

As far as the top mount goes, would it be possible to mod those walls to fit the radiator there? The only other concern is putting some holes for the tubes to run through too.
