Anyone done that yet?

No point, plus how would you mount the 140s?

I have not never had watercooling system and Im little interested (not about those Corsair WC kits, because they dont perform that good and doens't even look that nice) but I don't have any idea how much the costs would be, if I would want to cool my CPU and one GPU?

Depends on how much you want to spend. You could spend $190 on the RX360 Rasa kit and ~$110 on a GPU block and be pretty much set or you could piece it together. My loop is probably upwards of $800, lmao.

Thanks MooMoo! Yep you are correct Jesus, I used the brackets included with the EK res. Used one hole already in the motherboard tray for the top bracket, and drilled another hole for the bottom bracket. I also have spent way too much on my loop, much more than expected like a few hundred dollars. doh.gif

That's crazy I've got that exact same finger print on my case. I think they must be picking them up when the coating is still hot, because the print is burned into the rubber. One of my retention/spring clips is broken too.

I'm PM'ing you regarding this issue. Sorry to hear that things are not as well as they should be. frown.gif We'll make it right for you!

Just got my case a couple days ago and I have to say this is an amazing case! There is so much room in here yet it's only about as big as my HAF 932. I love the LEDs on the rear I/O and I love even more how they are powered by a SATA connector rather than your typical case with molex. So I can just hook it up to the harness of SATA power going to my HDDs rather than running a molex chain up there just for that. The adjustable fan pitch is awesome and cable management was epic, so many grommets means there's so many options when it comes to cable management.

Now for the negatives, the window and the exterior paint finish are fingerprint and dust magnets! As soon as I took the protective film off the window the static turned the acrylic into literally a dust magnet.
I had some difficulties installing hard drives too since the pins on the drive sled that go into the mounting holes of HDDs seem to be just a tad too big to fully fit it. I compared the pins with the drive sleds of my Coolermaster HAF 932 and they are indeed a bit thicker. That made HDD installation a bit of a pain since if the pins aren't in far enough so the top is flush with the drive sled then you can't slide the sled back in since the top of the pin will hit the side of the drive cage. Took me ages to finally sort that out.

Now for some pics:

I've had a couple of issues with my Switch810 as well.When i first opened the box,a little piece of plastic fell off from the packaged case.Tried to find where it came from but no luck.Also,one of the clips on the SATA power connector for the rear LED was broken and was barely hanging on.On a funny note,instead of a fingerprint,i had a really long piece of hair stuck between the front plastic and the rubber on the front bezel LOL.

I took the side panel off and rested it against a wall when I was building the rig, a few hours later when I was finished the window looked like one of those cell phone screen protectors that you dropped on the carpet. I finally managed to clean it well enough to put it back on the case.

The 140mm fans would mount on top of the case. I have screws to go from the outside of the fans. The 360 rad and 3x 120 fans inside of case.

I had exactly same problem, I couldnt get them them in so I used screws instead. The windows is little dust magnet but it doesn't bother me, you can alwasys wipe it easily smile.gif

Huh, I did not have any issues with the HDD. Here is a tip if you had a CM HAF case. I left my SSD mounted on teh SSD brackets from the HAF case and they work perfectly in the switch.
