I kinda wish they made the fan filter white as well. It would have given the entire case a cleaner look.

but after getting my card under control, the thing seems to run in the 50's c, clocked at 4.22. thumb.gif I'm pretty pumped

also managed to toss together a build photo:



only thing missing is the 640 gig WD caviar black hard drive

Nice rig thumb.gif

Could you post some pictures?
I'm interested to see if you've managed to mount a Hard Drive properly whilst using a big tower cooler.


Should hopefully be migrating to this case in the next few weeks!

Thanks for the pictures!

Just ordered a Node 304 and the P8Z77I-Deluxe board, I will be itx by this weekend biggrin.gif

If I can't fit a Hard Drive in one of the cages, then I may consider getting an H80i, not sure yet though.
I'll post picture when I am finished.

sweet. so the d14 will fit fine as you can see. only problem is my card pushes a lot of hot air into the case. when gaming the processor will get warmer than usual. I just have clocks turned down now. I plan on delidding the ivy fairly soon so I will be able to combat some of the heat. its nothing near dangerous, but still something to keep in mind if your card is not a blower style card that pushes the heat out of the back of the case.

Will the SeaSonic X Series X650 fit with a full sized GPU?

Not without modding a bit. If you take the psu bracket out you can actually slide the psu over enough to work. my power supply is a bit bigger than that seasonic. but be warned it is a tight fit. my cables do touch the back side of my card.

What about a CORSAIR HX series HX650 with an almost 11in card?
post #619 of 7059
I use a HX650 with the GTX660TI POWER Ed by MSI

fits nicely, and the cable plugs don't touch the card....

The 660ti I want to use is 10.7in vs the 10.43in of the MSI 660TI, will that still fit?

Do you have any pictures of the psu/gpu area in your case?
