Congrats. It's such a great case to work inside. Remember CaseLabs is still a fairly small company and it might take a couple of days to ship. Be sure to get a machete to get through all the packaging LOL.

I've got a build log going on mine and I'll have an update tonight on it. Check the log section for Reactor 07.

I can't say enough about the case. Yes, it's huge, but it's so worth it seeing your ambient temps way below any other case you've ever had.

Please stop talking about the M8. I'm really tempted

but I won't be able to afford it for my next build Performance over look for me and since the GPUs won't be water cooled right of the bat, I don't think the M8 is worth it.

Oh and forgot to mention, moving up from a 800D case. the 800d is truly a grate case but tbh, there isent simply enough room to work with. Sure ull get ur stuff in, but be prepared to get some cuts and blister. So this M8 im sure will give some breathing room !

Thanks It's a labor of love and hate.

That's a lot of gear your putting in. Those Rampage Extreme boards are so pretty. I wish I had one. Depending on the Rads you have, there should be space enough to mount them without cutting.

Did you get the Radiator mounts?

There are several of us who move from the 800D. And honestly, after having done so, I don't regret it. The 800D is a pretty awesome chassis, but it's nothing compared to an M8.

yes thats true, altho i didnt buy it all at once. been using them awile now in my 800d
with a 360 at top of case + 240 in bottom.

got desent temps @4.3ghz
cpu idle: 31
cpu load: (rendering, as i dont play games): 50 / 60c dependeing on scene
gfx (not oc - as i do not game): 30 / 33c depending on how long the renders go (some times 7h+)

quite big jump from 30 to 50/60, and hoping to improve that.

Still no Tracking numbers How long has it usaly been taking for you guys who ordered from caselabs, to get your's shipped ?

/cheers !
