When I get this case I plan on having filters for all the intake fans (Cats and whatnot) but do you think it'd be advantageous to replace the mesh with other filters or keep the standard mesh/filters?

So did you cut out the metal mesh? I was reading it's a 30-40% drop in airflow if you leave it in versus cutting it out..

thats only with a light oc of 980/1500 on the cards, cpu stock atm, but ive tried the 5ghz temps and i wasnt going over 72 im prime
Khal, very nice build all around. Looks like that cable cover works well. Great job.

I just bent the fixing tags and lifted it out, I can re fit it if I want to but there is no need as it looks just fine whithout it.

For those living in Italy and badly wanting to get their hands on this bad boy, I have an awesome find!

Here http://cgi.ebay.it/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...=STRK:MEWNX:IT you can order it from the UK and believe it or not it costs less, shipping included! Not to mention it ships within 5-7 business days (a hell of a lot better than what italian e-tailers promise us).

I just ordered mine, can't wait to finally complete my new PC!!

Elysium seems to be quite amazing case and I'm planning to buy one. I plan to equip the case with Silverstone's air penetrators, but it's unclear wether the front hdd cages support 140mm fan or not. In pictures I can see some other screw holes besides the holes that are for 120mm fan. Could someone check does it support 140mm?

Regards,

Legis
post #257 of 1907
yes Legis it does, it supports a 420 rad which has 3x 140mm on it

I heard some people have had problems with the NH-D14 fitting in this case. Apparently the side-panel fan gets in the way. I hope this isn't true. I just ordered this case and the NH-D14. xD
