. I really like the contrast between the red/black theme, great minds think alike. I went with a full red/black interior theme for myself other than the case, everything is either red/black. Red being the smaller of the two (more black with splashes of vibrant red).

Thanks to everyone for contributing to the 'official owners threats'
Im planning on doing a whole new gaming rig, its gonna involve some
Sabertooth z87 - Socket 1150
Intel Core I5-4670
Corsair AX 850
Corsair Force GT 120
Prolly about 16 gigs of ram, crucial or corsair not yet decided..
But more about that will follow later when i get things sorted out soHere goes the question:
Will i be able to fit a NZXT x60 Kraken with the Corsair C70 case? (Top mounted - pull config)
Ive seen some do it - but what sort of modding is actually required, i cant find any detailed info yet..
Ive heard reviewers talk about a little modding for it to fit - ím hoping that some of you will be able to advice me on this.
If you haven't ordered yet, I do have some suggestions for your build. The Kraken will fit with no problem for starters.
I suggest you save your money and jump on a 3770K, prices are going down for them as they are the previous-generation but they aren't destroyed by the temps that all Haswell chips are plagued with. The only Haswell chip I will own is the one in my new MacBook Air. The performance boost from a 4670 to a 3770K will actually be more than the performance boost from the next-gen increase. First being the 3770K is unlocked and overclockable and the second is because the 3770K has hyperthreading where as the 4670 does not.
The PSU should be fine but I don't think you'll be needing anything over a 650 unless you plan to do Crossfire in the future which a 750 would suffice. I use a 650 for my build right now.
There are much better SSDs than that and if you want performance and proven reliability, then go for a Samsung 840 Pro. Fast read/writes and lasts forever with a fairly good price. The best SSDs would probably be from Intel, amazing with reliability unmatched by any other company.
The Gigabyte 7970 is amazing, I own one of them in my other build. They run cool out of the box and their performance is amazing. They also overclock easily and really well with low temps.
Most build nowadays feature 16GBs of RAM that it's becoming the norm for PC custom builds. It used to be an extra thing to have anything more than 8GB, now, it's common to see 16GB and the 32GB are what is the next level stuff. I recommend G.Skill RAM however over Corsair or Crucial. G.Skill RAM overclock really well and I have never had a problem with them unlike Corsairs where they starting causing crashed after 1 1/2 years of use.
These are my suggestions to you, my next suggestion is if you are okay with it, you could save some money by going the NH-D14 or SilverArrow route instead of a CLC. Or the Corsair H100i, which I have and I will tell you. It is extremely quiet and it runs my CPU 12C cooler than the prev-gen H100.
