A user here reported he was able to fit his Black Ice Stealth 420, so I'm wondering if the SR1/GTX fit in the top without modification. Oh well, hopefully someone else will try this.
Black Ice Sr1 and GTX should line up. Both have the 20mm spacing needed to match the 810 holes.
Others are 15 or 16 mm...Too bad there wasn't a standard spec for the mfr's to follow.
The only problems are if you mount with the ports at the back, they are too close to the I/O plate to run hose. Best way is ports at the front. Also, you might want to either cut a hole or totally cut away the non-removable plate in the optical drive compartment. I seen on youtube, the NZXT CES 2012 demo had an oblong hole cut for the fittings and tubes. But still, if you don't cut the whole thing out, it blocks the front fan somewhat.
I've got a GTX 420 coming soon. Can't wait to get started on this bad boy. I have the black version 810.
