I have to ask. Why are you putting your GPU in the last 4x Pci Express slot? It should be in the first 16X slot. Your really really handicapped in that 4x slot....
post #184 of 1026
Been there since March and never had a problem and i play for hours almost everyday, but right now im only running only one SSD, when i open it to install the other SSD i will switch it to the 16x slot

Ok guys. It's nice to have a club to ask. What are you opinions on the front I/O and door?

 

I do love the door, have as much stuff in the 5.25" and forget about it, nice and clean. Double hinged is a awesome bonus.

 

But I'm not fond of the lay out/location of the I/O, or it's looks for that matter. It has a after thought about it:

 

"Let's make a sexy clean case with a door that covers the whole front!"

"But wait, What about the power button, etc?"

"Lets cut a whole in the door and stick it in there."

 

How it's it's quality on the I/O? I'm looking for a Cosmos 1000/S/II style front with it mounted to the top front edge of the case and can be used with the door closed and doesn't interfere with it's operation. I want to be able to plug both YubiKeys in the front and use them both along with some extra USB for stuff. I have though of having a modular USB hub on my desk but I don't like them and I have enough ports to not have to split one. Don't get me wrong, it does look good in it's own way.

 

Another thing I was wondering is how do the removable panels feel? Latch solid, no flex, come undone when bumped by accident?

The quality of the front I/O panel is good IMO. Definatly has held up better than my old Antec 300 front I/O ports. However, I dont tend to keep USBs plugged in the front. Plug in for use then remove them. Yes, having to remove something plugged in the front to open the door can be a PITA. But again, I dont use the fronts very often.

As for the removable panels, the sides. Are rock solid on mine. I dont have any vibrations and close very good. My case also came with sound padding on the frame that would contact the door to help eliminate any extra vibrations.
The only panels that I think could use some work, are the removable panels for the front bay drives. You have to pop them out from the inside for the most part. But then putting them back in. You can accidently push them in to far past the detents or get then crooked easy. All requiring a removal and careful placement. Could be better IMO.

Well the only reason I leave my YubiKey's plugged in 24/7 is because they are my passwords. I only have my master pass for LastPass memorized, Windows and soon to be Linux will use one key to log in with. Currently I'm running a cable from the back and constantly unplugging one to switch tot he only and it's getting old fast. So being able to plug them in side by side as opposed to stacked would be awesome. And I don't want to do any modding. I'm burnt out on it. I just want it to work.

 

I knew the doors had nice padding and same with the removable fan panels. The ones that cover the fans are the ones I am more concerned about being nice It will be mostly likely that the top will be off but would like to know the side would be going anywhere.

Aaah, ok. Those panels. My top has been off on it since day 1 for my H100. The front on mine is perfect/fine. No issues with it. The side one I have not had any issues with it either. Never had any rattling on it. It is off now since I am folding 20-24/7 now for my 7950. Just removing the panel drops my temps on the 7950 ~5*c.
