They're also good for keeping high airflow for drying those little spills when filling biggrin.gif.

For the rest of your questions, I cant comment on wear.. I just havent owned it that Long.. My personal take on it so far is It does take some slight modding to fit SOME rads but i love doing mods so this is the case for me.. Would perfer the window to be solid plexi.. no fan.. but thats another mod. the hard drive bays are difficult to slide in and out... The positives far outway the little negatives.. Theres just so much room and the cost for this case is low so i have no regrets.. Good luck on your decision.thumb.gif
Oh if it came in white i would for sure buy again..That is if I had the room for another one:)

Thanks for the answer and the pictures.

I think I'm pretty much settled on black alu strips and no window. You have no idea how good the picture of the black strips suits my plans thumb.gif

if you want to mod the non window is the best buy! you can always add. that was my only issue because of the window. the rest of the case for the money is first class, just remember its a cheap quality built case. with endless mod options

happy building!

Yea, not expecting CaseLabs build quality from this but it'll do for me.

I have grown a bit tired of windowed cases. If it isn't done properly it often looks terrible and all those little details and touches cost a lot of money. But the main reason I'm not going for a window is because I want to place sound dampening throughout the case.
I'll probably make a PSU cover as well to tidy things up but that's about it. Externally I have a great idea but not going to spoil the surprise yet thumb.gif (will make a work log when I do start the modding but for now I really want to focus on some failed exams I have to redo rolleyes.gif )
It won't be anything major so you'll still have the most heavily modded Elysium I reckon tongue.gif

Well, it still lives, fortunately.
Cable management is nonexistent frown.gif, and I also had to remount the GPU water blocks a couple of times to get temperature somewhat back to normal (without taking off the damn bridge, since I didn't want to refill wth.gif, and one GPU still has hot spots at the core, don't know how that happened, quite sure the mounts are good).
Well, I suppose the next upgrade is two more U23xx monitors. I think I'm done messing with the loop for a while now.

Yeah, I was planning to replace that with the good old base from stock cooler, but what am I going to do with this (and the old air TR T-Rad2) sad-smiley-002.gif?
