Posting in...

Got my Elysium about a week ago as part of my Bulldozer build.

Had the current gear, 2 CD drives and a Zalman ZM-MFC2 stacked into an Apevia X-Pleasure... Oh and Crossfired 4870's.

Whacked it all in this case and HOLY-- ... WOW.
So much room!... I can put my CCFL's back in and everything! And it has WHEELS! XD

I bloody love this case. Its amazing. Huge and beautiful. I think this is gonna be my last chassis for awhile...

GPU temps dropped 10^C and I pumped it up another 70MHz on the core, 25 on the RAM to a total of 950/1,400 on the 2GB 6950. Temps don't go over 70^C... Its insane.

Oh, and yes... That IS a modded H50. wink.gif
After lapping my 955BE, H50 and doing the mod, Prime95 at 3.8GHz 1.4v dropped 10^C.
Running Prime95 at 3.9GHz 1.5v right now... Apparently C2's won't go over 3.8. wink.gif

I think you definitely should at least try managing those cables. I know its hard because its so big but O_O thats insane, its like the Amazon in there!

Just kidding, I know a lot of people don't really care, and I'm glad you're enjoying the case and the H50 mod is pretty awesome biggrin.gif welcome aboard!

@Darth- Thankyou thankyou. XD
And its not all THAT bad... I've done my best. XD

Most of it is the two CCFL's, the LED strip and some fans.
I'm going to upgrade the PSU eventually, which will also involve moving it from top to bottom as this PSU's cables were too short for the bottom position.
This is my first chassis with any kind of power management and it'll take a couple of iterations to get right.
Have purchased an Asus Crosshair V Formula and when that goes in I'm going to redesign the cabling routes.
I can hardly get the other panel on as it is. :S Too many unused connections... Two 6+2 plugs are bigger than you might think. >.<<br />
Pic attached: Old build w/ 2x 4870 before one died.

Yeah, and unfortunately good cable management can be difficult even with cases designed with this in mind.
I have almost achieved that much-sought-after "no cables" look (making sure that every inch of visible cable is painted black to blend in with the background), but the PC is sitting on my desk with the right panel DETACHED because I have not yet managed to make them all fit in that tight space!

Of course, I should mention that out of the 12 5.25" bays only 1 is free (and I plan to use that too in the future). And I have only 1 intake fan at the front; the remaining bays are occupied by 3 fan controllers, power meters, a gazillion-in-1 card reader with USB 3.0 and eSATA, multiswitch, Blu-ray drive... yeah, a nice long list biggrin.gif

I could post pictures, but I still haven't installed my CCFLs so the lighting show is not yet complete tongue.gif
