I was thinking the same thing, i got mine less than 2 weeks from the 540, but when i saw it in real life i didnt like it,
the only thing that's awesome about 540 is the cable management, since the PSU is on the other side.

I think I got mine 3 weeks before, the manag ement is nice but I also think it has way more cooling options air or liquid. And it's not an oeiginal form factor which I like

CPU: i5 3570k
Mobo: MSi Z77a-G45 Thunderbolt
GPU: MSi Gefroce GTX 660Ti PE/OC
Memory: 8Gb Corsair Vengeance
Hdd: WD Blue 1 TB
Ssd: 120GB Samsung 840 Series
Cooling: H100i push/pull with Corsair SP 120 High performance eddition

The only thing im interested in cooling would be the CPU and taking out the H100i for something custom. (Hence why i did a side window lol)

have you made any plans yet? a pump is about $80-100 depending mainly on retailer(or a dcp 4.0 pump with res for less than $100). a res is as cheap as $25 and up to whatever you want to spend. a block is $50-60 depending on which you want. tubing is another $25-30 and fittings(if you use barbs) can be about $15 up to $50. a radiator on the other hand, will run you about $45 up to $100 depending on brand and size. fans, lol at the thought. cheap and good or expensive and slightly better($7 each up to $30 each). give us a ballpark monetary figure and see how many people chime in for set-ups.

I may snag another 660ti for a good SLI scale before custom loop but its worth it if you want to max out your chip potentially.

Probably under 300 (Give or take-not to strict of a point). Im just curious to see how people utilized the space in the 500r, thats what im a little worried about is space.
