My replacement handles came in today and they were in superb condition. I can't give NCIX bad rep as they did provide decent customer service and delivered on broken parts as promised.

I wish it came a few days earlier so my fallen case isn't slightly skewed, but that is partially my fault for putting my case near the edge of a desk and expecting defective feet to hold up watercooled stuff.

You're being gracious. Did you tell NCIX the whole story or just that the feet were broken?

Zalman CNPS9900 MAX, comes with a red or blue LED fan:

CNPS9900max_b_01.jpg
It JUST fits on the oddly positioned CPU socket, albeit sideways, but because it is so narrow, including the fan, it blows air toward the right-hand side and is off-center, so the front-to-back airflow can pick up warm air and carry it out of the case. It in fact dips slightly into the BitFenix Spectre Pro 140mm fan I have attached for rear exhaust, but it's 2-3mm away from the fins, so nothing interferes. I am actually using it with a Noctua low-noise adapter, so it's completely inaudible (~750RPM vs. the usual 900RPM+ for this fan without the adapter), albeit keeping my i7 3770 temperatures at 36-40C, load up to 55-60C in games, but if I remove the adapter, the fan cools really well. I'm perfectly okay with those processor temps for every day use where I prefer silent operation.
Won't interfere with tall RAM heatspreaders, if you have those.
Anyway, the heatsink looks beautiful! It's full copper, nickel-plated to look black. Please excuse the mess of cables - still awaiting my final power supply.

Installation is actually a breeze. Forget the bracket under the motherboard - just use those plastic black square things with holes, insert screw-mounts into them. Insert those into the motherboard heatsink screw holes, and hold them in place with your fingers as you flip the motherboard face-up. Gently slide onto a table and mount the heatsink on top. Use LGA 1155 screws to attach the heatsink, et Voila!

Your casing looks amazing, i love it, good work

I only said the feet we're broken, but they were going to send the replacements out already anyway. I can actually straighten it out by screwing in the side panels, so it's almost straight. It's really not worth the hassle trying to argue for a replacement case when mine works just fine, plus I already modded the front panel, so I'm sure that voids all warranty.

I think Xbournex wouldnt have an issue but if you believe it isn't worth the hassle I see what you mean. Is it the panels or the frame?

It's the frame. Since one of the bottom back corners fell into the floor it made the bottom of the frame go forward. For the door panels, the top screw area is flush with the case frame, but the bottom needs to be screwed in so that the back frame is straight.

It hasn't ruined any functionality of the case and it's not a big deal for me. I'm just happy the case handles came in and are a lot more sturdy than the previous ones. This is gonna sound like BS, but if anything, it has made my case unique since it is now like the Leaning Tower of Pisa. (<-- lame, but it just made me laugh wink.gif)

Kokin your build should be called "IBM-5100" or "[John] Titor".

You should also replace bitfenix logo with this

Great idea!

I'll have to think of a way to fabricate that logo.

Was at the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle this weekend, a TON of white Prodigy cases were on display for multiple game booths, very slick! Bitfenix must be so happy with this product!

Now to wait for the Bitfenix Ghost thumb.gif
