A few first assembly pics. Please don't mind the photo quality my camera sucks I know lol.
dscn1823g.th.jpg


Also first time playing with a fan controller. The Sunbeam Rheosmart 6 has both manual and PWM control even with non PWM fans. Many usable possibilities with this setup rated at 30 watts per channel.

Wish I would have went ahead and installed the new foam grommet over the second CPU opening, but decided to wait till after sleeving and wire manage goes through a finial clean up.
Came up with another good use for the 1/16 foam,
dscn1832j.th.jpg
dscn1833g.th.jpg
used a thin card board template to make a nice seal for around the upper mounted 360 rad. In my case I found a slight unwanted intake draft (dust etc) was traveling just between the 140mm width and the 120mm rad width (same with length). Nice difference in air flow/temps after removing the inner filter element in the top fan cover. Also trimmed a piece to cover the Top Drive Bay Caddy opening (not adhered).

Here's what I came up with to rid the upper rear (unused) power supply mount and it's unfiltered/unused fan opening, plus an alternative to get those funky azz USB 3.0 cables to the IO Panel.
dscn1818k.th.jpg

I have to admit, I was really concerned about the temp difference in coming to this case as my last setup was an external mount. The entire system actually runs a lot cooler in this case especially under load. Quite amazing! I also discovered that with this fan controller I leave it on PWN mode and than set bios fan control to silent mode and it actually maintains all temps even under load but even more quiet than it already was.

As with any air moving monster dust is always a problem so I do have filters on the way for the left and right side cover fans. I am temporary using a clear plastic wrap to block those stupid slits that come in the side window until I decide what I what to do with them. While most of the inlet areas are filtered, there's always room to improve. The entire 200mm fan area will have a filter as well as the mobo fan and replacing the water pipe grommets in the rear with solid plugs w/no slits to leak. I might seem a little anal about dust but I bought this case only to have a cleaner, less maintenance internal rad mount with good air flow (sorry Corsair 800D). I'm not disappointed at all.

The stock case fans seem to work well for me as far as air flow and noise and temps, I'm not into all the lights anyway, just not my thing. No real reason to upgrade them so far. This was another surprise!

Now, if I could only decide what color tubing to go with lol.

Care to add me to the club?

Hey guys!

Im about to bite the bullet and order this case.

I was wondering a few things though (i have read through the 54 pages but i probably missed it).

1) What is the internal height from the Floor of the case to the Top.
2) Can the drive bay supports (the actual metal sheets that have the holes for the devices to be screwed in) be completely removed? (either rivets or screws)
3) What is the distance of the drive bays to the motherboard (considering an XL ATX board is used)?
4) What are the dimensions of the Hard drive cages? And can anyone provide pictures of one of the cages from all sides?

Thanks in advance guys.... hope to be part of the club soon... ( i will be, but i do hope its soon!)

I'll add more soon. In the meantime here's a small video: http://www.flickr.com/photos/7701429@N06/6457506605/in/photostream
Here are some more photos:

Now that's a job well done! Inspiring!

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I am not entirely done though, I have some CCFLs that I haven't installed yet and I want to paint as many parts as possible (the edges mostly) with blue UV paint.

Has anybody tried to fit a 140mm wide radiator in in the front where the drive bays/expansion bays go? I just got mine yesterday, and am for sure putting a 420 mm Black Ice GTX up top and would like to put a 280mm in the front drive bays, but I just don't know if it will fit. It says the radiator is 6.02" wide, and I measure I have about 6 inches of room. A 140mm fan will fit in there, but I didn't know if the radiator was wider than the fan. If it won't fit then I'll just put a 240 there.

This build should be epic when it's finished. I'm going to try to make it look really nice with all braided cables and a nice red black theme with red led Yate Loon high speed 140mm fans. I will post plenty of pics as it becomes a reality.

The gap between the two towers is intended for a 5.25" drive, which is 135mm, so you couldn't quite get one in - Shame.

Received my Elysium yesterday, fitted my ATX inside it and jheeze does it look big..

Another thing I spotted, is the second CPU-cutout has been covered with a grommet.

I also plan to go water - with a 420 in the roof and a 360 up front. I Cant wait smile.gif
post #537 of 1907
I want that grommet !!!!! I wonder if they sell me one don't know why they didn't do that in the first place.
post #538 of 1907
Yep should have been added from day 1, looks ok if you keep cables clear from the rear
