I am new to the forum and new to building my own systems but I am not really new to computers at all! I thought I would post some pics here as I have recently come towards the completion of my build using this case but I ran into some unique problems when trying to mount the Corsair Airflow Pro with my Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme radiator mounted to the top of the case. In the end I bought a custom rad mount and moved the rad to the front of the case and it cleared the room with no issue, The build is not quite complete and has cost me about $2000 so far. I will post pictures in the RigBuilder and on here as I get to that point.
- In this picture you can see that there is virtually no clearance for anything above the RAM as they sit with the fans mounted. This proved to be an issue as I wanted to mount the Corsair Airflow Pro system over the fans. I know they are not necessary but I wanted to flash this case out a bit.
- In this picture you can see that I have removed the fan cages and I have bought a small mount that allows me to stand the radiator towards the front of the case and it is currently pulling cold air into the case to keep with the natural airflow. I was actually able to keep the SSD tray in place without issue which was a win seeing is how I want many more SSD/HDD then I thought I was going to end up with. With the rad moved over to the front I am seeing slightly better temps with the Thermaltake software as well (liquid temps).
- In this picture here you can see how it looks with everything routed for the most part. I am soon to get my UV lighting kit in and I have to get better fans for this case but I like the way it has turned out.
As I mentioned I want to get better fans for this case (Corsair AF/SP) and I have to install the UV light kit I have got then I will post some final pictures. If you want to see the specs for this build please go Check out the RigBuilder. I hope this helps someone.
