Really love that case, just built a rig with one of those this past week, ton of space for cables, drives and everything. Nice build you got here.

Thank you! This case is very big.... I like the layout and extra room it has for cables etc behind the motherboard tray.

I did have to cut the sleeving off of my 24pin Mobo connector because it was a tight fit. Now that the cables are spread though it works like a charm!

Thank you also. I guess that my room classifies as a man cave? I just did a set up vid on my YouTube page. I would do pictures but it's a big mess with finals this week!

Ignore the lisp I got stung in the lip by a bee and it was very difficult to talk.....

Welcome mate and fantastic looking rig.

Thanks again guys!

After awhile of using it I have barely touched the HDD and am planning on purchasing 3 more Force 3's in a Raid 5... I plan on having this for another 3 years so that should fill up easily.

On another note though... A new Retina MacBook Pro would be nice wink.gif Too bad the ****ed thing costs over 3k!

Thats a lot of great parts for a first build man , I wouldnt change anything if you can afford it ( I mean thats a lot of Ram , blu ray , 240gb ssd , ) ... its gotta cost ya but its a sick build , I like anything with a Switch 810 anyways , I think with a rig like that eventually your going to outgrow and out clock the H100, I did and my stuff isnt as good as yours. But for now thats really a top dollar rig !
