Well, my build absolutely isn't as nice as Owl's vision (which I'm a huge fan of) but I am extremely proud of it nevertheless. Sorry my camera sucks.
And I did some case modding that I think George would like to hear about - if he's reading, of course.
My cooling: XSPC RX240 in the bottom and some Swiftech 120 at the back exhaust. Komodo 6900 on the GPU, XSPC Rasa on the CPU.
Case mods, in a nutshell (covered more in depth below): Custom window, lucite - cut along the seam and bolted it on. Cut a notch out of the mobo tray for the case cables. Cut a hole out under where the HDD cages go for a 120mm fan.
My notes about the case:
1) I love this case.
2) Raise the top compartment (under the mesh) by 10+mm. I completely understand the compatibility with the H100 and its ability to drive sales of both - which I think is a masterful plan - but there has to still be a way to keep this absolute compatibility with the H100 while making it compatible with non-corsair radiators. I'm not asking for an RX240 to fit up there, but enough to get at least a slim 240.
3) Because it would hurt nothing and help at least a few people that buy the case, put one more filtered 120-compatible hole under the HDD cages. You'll see the hole I Dremeled for the second fan on my radiator - unless it's a feature you're specifically reserving for higher priced cases, which I suppose I can understand too. It just definitely helped me out for the configuration I wanted.
4) Offer a side panel with a window rather than the big..bulge. Enthusiast cases without the option for a window makes some of us sad. My Antec 900, with its utter lack of cable management, was embarrassing - definitely didn't want a window in it. However, the fantastic cable management opportunities and black interior make this case gorgeous inside. Not being able to see the work a lot of people put in to their interiors will turn people away from this case - yes, towards more expensive Corsair cases - but also toward comparable cases in the same price point that, while lacking other features, have a window. It can be a deal-breaking omission.
5) This is my biggest note - The cables from the panel at the front of the case should not be routed through the top grommeted hole next to the motherboard. There is a gap where the 5.25" bays meet the motherboard tray - if you are looking into the side of the case it is at the top left (or back) of the 5.25" bays - you can't slip the cables through it with it's stock design. However, I took a little bit out of the motherboard tray with a Dremel and was able to fit every cable through it - even the big USB 3.0 cable. This freed up the top grommet and, honestly, makes the interior look much cleaner. I attempted to take a photo below, which may or may not show what I'm talking about.
Anyway, here's my build - once again, I'm proud, and would be happy to added to the club
This is what I was talking about in note 5 - I drilled this small..notch, really out (or just extended the hole) and it made a huge difference. Opinions welcome.
Thanks for looking, I put a lot of time into this and as much money as was humanly possible (though I would've like to have had a lot more!). But this was what I could do.
