First let me say I love the case, but have one question and one complaint. My complaint deals with the system they use to hold the hard drive in, in the hard drive bay cage bay. I cannot for the life of my keep the rubber from sliding over the top of the little pins, causing the pin to push out. If the pin is pushed out, it will not slide correctly into the 3.5" hard drive bay. And My question has to do with the movable fan adapter in the back. Apparently these do not offer pwm control. However, I am getting a swiftech h220 which has an adapter that does offer either 7 or 8 pwm fan control. They also sell these adapters for $10. Can't I buy an extra adapter to replace the nzxt one, and run two adapters with pwm controls. I am thinking about mounting one on each side of the back of the case to make it easier for cable managment. Below is a picture of Swiftech Unit.

I can't help you with your HDD as I'm only using SSDs with 3,5" adapterplates in my case which just works fine, so don't know anything about that problem but I can tell that it is no problem to replace the fan adapter. It's only fixed with some velcro and it shouldn't be an issue to do the same with your PWM-adapters.
That swiftech adapter looks nice. The big minus on the NZXT adapter is that it doesn't have a 3 pin connector for the fan controller. The one you have posted does thumb.gif

Thank you. that is the info I was looking for. For ten dollars it is worth it for the extra controller, and the H220 comes with one also. This is my first build so I will be asking a ton of questions here. Once I get all the parts (all but H220 will be delivered by Monday) and am going to mach everything up. My next step to think about will be which sleeved cables to buy. I dont want to waste money and buy things I dont need. I am looking to do a red and black sleeved cable combo on the PSU and Mobo hookups.

BEFORE any idea to buy you always need to view reviews and tests by people. If you would do this, you would know that inside H220 is standart DDC pump, which noisy and it was confirmed by users and TTL review.

H220 pump louder than any solution on the market, the only way to make it quieter is the resistor on 12v line or 3-pin port on the motherboard or fan controller.

Which sleeved cables to buy? Corsair PSU + cable kit or BitFenix Alchemy cables or DarkSide cables.

If you had done research and red reviews other than TTL you would see the pump is quiet. In fact everybody, except TTL mentioned how quiet the set up was. The noise TTL heard was the air passing between his big ears. Check out Martins Review and Linus, and you can see how the pump is quiet. For an OPEN, PREBUILT, all in one system, it is great to get started out on watercooling. By no means can it compete with a custom loop or some higher priced kits. However, it is perfect for what it is, which is a first time watercoolers tutorial. Custom loops are out of the question for me because I do not have the experience, and closed loops are out of the question because I would just go with a Noctua instead.

yeah just watched Linus video, to be honest Im using dual ddc in my build
I found the noise level is still OK (FYI I'm a silent freak)
best thing about ddc is the heat dump to the coolant itself is less than any other pump
thats why it runs so hot from the outside

great choice on the fans, but I just cant bare the color biggrin.gif

I agree and can empathize, but usually getting angry doesn't help anything.

LOL. Noctua just amazes me how they can have such a great product and awful color scheme. I could only imagine how many more fans they would sell if they just went to all black. Like I said, I am not excepting miracles from the H220. That is not why I am going to buy it. I am going to by it as a learning mechanism, and gateway into a custom loop. I would expect that by this time next year I will have a pretty trick WC set up, at least compared to the H220. Getting an H100i is just point in my case. It wont teach me crap about water cooling as it is a sealed unit.

If compare the sound level from H220 pump and from usual Corsair H100i, last one is quieter, probably even inaudible. I watched other reviews and my advice about lower voltage was right. You are trying to build rig with dual GeForce Titan, H220 and want debate with me what's better?) Man, H220 is sealed unit from the box, there is NOTHING better in kits than XSPC D5 with thick 360 radiators, plus it's MUCH MORE better investment in future WC loop. After XSPC you can buy another 60 mm thick 240 radiator and upgrade your loop potential for performance or noiseless options. With H220....man, nobody will buy thin high FPI radiator unless there is no choice or already have it.
