I like the Switch and its design and features but the 800D is just massive and gives me a lot more room to work with. I am mounting the rear 360 rad externally via a Swiftech radbox so that's a non issue as i may mount the the pump in the PSU heat zone.

With a case such as the 800D, or even the Switch, there should be no need to mount a 360 rad externally, they both (especially the Switch) accommodate most 360 rad's no problem.

It looks like you would have to cut the 800D up considerably in the bottom compartment to fit more rad, whereas the Switch will take the 360 and 240 right off the bat. I therefore have a Switch 810 sitting at home as we speak. Just waiting for some more parts before I make the transfer.
The only thing I don't like about the switch right now going from a 650D is that the overall build quality is lower. The side panels are sometime a PITA to remove and put back on and the plastic parts are meh. Otherwise, looks great for watercooling.

since you are doing the external rad the 800D is a good choice. It will help keep your air-cooled components cooled. wish you had gotten the switch but i understand your choice.

LOL not when your running 2X360 rads and i don't like how deep the 360 rad sits in the Switch case above the 5.25'' bay i am very anal about this stuff.

I am cooling the following -

i7 3770K 4.5Ghz-5GHz

670 FTW X2

Yea I can understand ya there. Not many cases available that will run 2x360's natively. I cooled my 2700K and dual 570's with a 360 and a 240 no problems, but dual 360's will be boss. Best of luck to ya.

Almost a month since I built my rig, and I have just one question to ask that I never had the chance to.
What is this light for? It never comes on, but yet I don't know what it's supposed to be for.

Well dang, I thought I did everything right..
Looks like I have to find out how to get it working.

EDIT: Alright it seems like my HDD light is broken, it's connected correctly to my mobo.
Oh well.. could it be because I have an SSD and HDD, or it shouldn't matter?

Well guys, I ran into a little problem while trying to attach my 240 rad to the bottom.



I have one of those x flow rads with a port on each side. So it takes up a little more space than a regular rad. One of the ends of the rad keeps on bumping into that thing I circled.

The only power tool I have is a drill. I was thinking of drilling holes very close to each other at the bend and making it like one of those sheets of perforated paper. Then I would just snap it off. Would this work?

Is these some kind of drill bit I can buy that will let me cut into this?

Thanks for the help. =)
