^whatever image source your using is complete garbage and takes years to load just use overclock.net's image server.
Edit: after waiting about 15 minutes on these images to load im insanely impressed that water cooling looks like sex very neat and tidy thumb.gif

Of course it depends on how long is your DVD/Bluray...
I will have same issue when I upgrade my PSU to a Seasonic Platinum 860W, but there might be a solution:

It will require modding the back of the case to allow the PSU to exit a bit, either using that accessory or using a custom one if you have the skill to do it.

For such a mod I would rather go with a slightly bigger case. Im thinking of using the Silverstone accessory for slot loading dvd drive which is only 150mm long. This should leave enough room.

In any case, my current dvd drive is 170mm long added to the 175mm from the psu makes 345 leaving 37mm (from a total of 382mm) clearance for connectors. I think this should work anyway.

Obviously anyone's comment with pictures or first hand experience with similar set ups would be greatly appreciated!

Its shocking how much I had to review every part I was planning to put in this case to make sure they fitted, hope it works out after all, I really like the case. The other option otherwise is the considerable bigger and heavier fractal arc mini :/

Hello,

I am receiving my parts today, so I will be able to provide some pictures soon smile.gif (I am only missing the GTX670FTW which is not ordered yet, should be there in 2 weeks max - in the meantime, I will be using the integrated graphics on i5 3570K).
Unfortunately as I just moved from my previous appartment to a house, I have no Internet connection for at least 1,5 weeks (I still can connect from the office).

Just a quick question for the cooling. I have 1 Noctua NH-U12P SE2 with 2 fans for the CPU (and/or case), which setup should I prefer :
- Push/Pull on CPU, no rear case fan
- Push on CPU, 1 Noctua rear case fan
- Pull on CPU, 1 Noctua rear case fan
- No fan on the CPU rad, 1 Noctua rear case fan

I precise: no overclocking of the i5 3570K intended so far.

Thanks for your input & regards,
Julien

Push on CPU, and rear case fan.

Then your VRM's and other motherboard components will have direct airflow and the warmer air can be exhausted out of the chassis!

Since your PSU is under 180mm it will fit nice, maybe unscrew DVD/5.25" bay while you're doing the cabling and then push it back for easier cable handling.

PSUs over 180mm will hit the angle in the structure so they wont fit, that's my problem when I upgrade to the Seasonic Platinum as they are 190mm in length frown.gif
Well, it wont be first time (or the last) that I cut a case, and having the PSU extend 2-3cm on the back wont be that much.

The Lian-li extension is only as a template/idea, as it extends 6cm, its too much for me.

Looks great dude. What radiator is that in the back? 120 or 140mm?

Which size phobia is that behind the 180?

Thanks for sharing

Radiator on the back of phobia is 180 mm. and the phobia is 120 mm. biggrin.gif

So I wasnt using my silverstone fp55 hard drive braket anymore but thought I could use it as a vent to get more air into the case! For the mesh I used window screen material.

700


My 670ftw was getting close to 70C in 78-80F ambient and figured out it needed more air flow at the top of the case. Added a 120mm fan on low and got temps down 5-7c and when I was comparing, the cooler temps with the 670 were at 78F ambient. The card did good with no help in ambient in the 72F range though but in the hotter temps guess the case was getting warm up there. The asus dcii 670 was similar regarding temps, only difference was it was silent so I dont think its a cooler issue, its just the top of the case collects the hot air. My gtx570 dcii had no issues and to defend the 670ftw the only reason I want to be far away from 70C is thats where it will kick you down 15mhz, not that the card was overheating tongue.gif

Wait so the rear radiator outside in the back is a 180mm? Could have sworn it was 280mm or 240mm. Nice so your doing 2x 180mm radiators huh? Regardless very creative layout thumb.gif

Mind sharing some pics of how you mounted the rear one? I have the 180mm magicool and am assuming the fans you have on it are smaller than 120mm?
