Would temps stay the same, or maybe increase slightly?

I don't think you will see much of a difference.

Considering that this is one of the largest cases out there, I was expecting to be able to mount 140mm fans AT THE VERY LEAST!

And how am I supposed to mount my SSD??? No, my SSD did not came with an included adapter!

This case is close to perfection, but I would like to see Xigmatek address the following points in a future revision:
  • support for fans of at least 140mm in every location
  • at least one 2.5" removable adapter in each HDD cage to allow easy SSD installation
  • a FULL plexiglas window - what is the point of making a window if you're going to cover most of it with a fan mesh???
I mounted my ssd with velcrow in the back, and it works fine, I think the pictures are somewhere in this thread, I'm not exactly sure where though.

They barely overhang over the board even with push/pull on the RX rad. I haven't considered mounting the rad on the bottom because that is where I plan on positioning the pump.



The rad is closer to the optical drive now but overall layout is the same. Looking at it now maybe I could put the rad where the psu is, have the pump next to it and hmmm...pondering

Still in the process of tidying my cables, but today i decided i wanted a full window and this is how it turned out! Excuse the bad quality photo and the messy loop , I ran low on tubing so couldn't achieve everything i wanted to!

Anyway,

Crappy photo indeed, but the window looks very nice

I was hoping to do such a mod since the beginning, got any tips on how should I do it on this particular case?

I just took out the fan and mesh on the side, marked where i wanted the window to finish, which was where the existing mesh finished, and just cut a straight line using a dremel and a cutting piece! Took me a whole of 5mins, And the plexi glass only set me back $15

Imo window is slightly too big, ideally 5,25 bay area shouldn't be exposed. For that reason, if you plan custom window, windowless version of that case is probably better.

I do agree with this, Using the non windowed version to cut a window would come out much better
