Maximus VIII Ranger,
i7 6700k
H100i V2
Asus GTX970
16GB DDR4 RAM
single SSD & HDD
DVD/RW etc.

Will this all fit in comfortably within a 600C? I love the idea of the clear window on the right of the unit as my PC is sat to the left of the rest of my entertainment system. We have to be able to show off our builds right?

I also have colour changing LED strips to fit in somewhere although not sure which would be the best position for them,

I have almost exactly the same build with you except for the DVD drive and I'll be running an Asus GTX 1070 OC Strix. The 600C is one of the top case choices for me however I am hesitated about it because of the inverted layout. My OCD simply can't just ignore the upside down ROG logos on the CPU and the GPU. lol

I've been reading a lot of reviews online about this case. Most hardware reviews definitely praise the design idea and in testing its a very capable case in terms of noise and cooling but almost all user comments echo your own. The top mounted PSU just isn't the fashionable thing to do.

I'm liking the idea of the very clean finished build. Having no wires on show is my ultimate goal plus the right hand window suits my set up. At least we get to see the pretty side of the GPU instead of the circuitry you normally see in a standard build. I do have the same concern about the GPU text though, surely somewhere will sell an ASUS sticker etc that we can retro fit to make our GPU's look the right way up?

At least ROG send a huge bunch of stickers out with their gear. I'll have a look when I get home to see if they can be used to alter logo orientation. The illumination though is a different story.

If these inverted cases start to become a trend for all manufacturers then maybe a rethink in how components are being branded is necessary.

Yeah Corsair is starting to make parts with replaceable inserts like their water cooling block and such. I've decided to go with the In Win 303 which is a pretty similar case.

Is the insert on the H100i V2 replaceable? I've noticed I don't have an illuminated ROG symbol on my mobo. Not much text is upside down either so apart from the logo on the GPU and the cooler it all looks ok when inverted.

Yeah corsair supposedly is making replaceable inserts with different colors for their V2 stuff. I don't know if they'll make inverted one though. I have the Maximux VIII so the rog logo has RGB and very big lol.

Is there different versions of the Maximum VIII? Mine is the Ranger and no logo. The H100i cooler has illuminated text which is programmable so thinking about it I don't think it will be possible to invert it. Still not a problem for myself but they could be losing a lot of potential customers who don't like the configuration

What case do you have now. I have a 400c and I do agree the h100i v2 hoses are really hard to work with. I had to bend the hoses by hand with some force. It's hard to work with but I like that it's built so well
