So far my components are:

ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe
Intel Core i7-3770K OR Intel Core i5-3570K (not sure yet)
SeaSonic X750
Samsung 830 Series 128GB SSD
EVGA GTX 690

I want to add a Corsair Liquid cooling system, like the H50 (if I can still find one) or any of the H systems. Which Corsair systems are plug and play with this case?

Thanks
I love how this will run Metro 2033 @2560x1440 at like 50FPS and its an Arma 2 rig... rolleyes.gif nice system though

My rad is finally painted and I'm letting it dry before I do one final spray. I'm going to be painting my GTs soon, but I'm still struggling with the c-clip. My flathead precision tools aren't being nice to me right now. frown.gif One GT successfully painted!

NCIX was pretty quick to respond, but they said the same thing to me. The good thing is that it isn't really a problem for me since my rig will be stationary and I'm just happy that I will get replacements.

It just seems to get caught on something for some reason. Mine fit very well after I fenaggled around with it for a bit, and after screwing it in, it's as flush with the back as can be.

I'll have to try that. Looking at it now through the sides, the cables are only bent where the heatshrinks end, meaning that there is quite a lot of room left. Thanks for your tip and +rep. smile.gif

X-650/660 is really quite tight fit, sure it does fit without any mods but couldnt feel comfortable when had to force it in place quite hard to get secured. So what i did was that added single mb standoff to each corner beetween case and psu plate to give it that small bit free space needed to get it in easier without forcing anything.

At a cursory glance, I've made a few assessments;
1) I'm not sure if the H80 will fit on the rear fan location (as exhaust) as well as allow an intake fan on the rear-most top fan location.
2) I initially had plans of having 2 top intake fans, 2 fans on my H80 and a 230mm intake on the front, all being driven by a BitFenix Recon controller. I thought that this would work, as I didn't think I'd need the 5.25" bay in place for the Recon to fit - not sure why, but that's what I thought. Looking for opinions on what I should do - have the fan up top and just run all the fans manually, or keep the Recon and control the other fans (top-rear intake and 2xH80 fans - if they work together - and the 230mm front intake)
Can anyone offer any advice?

I haven't seen a response for this so... I had exactly the same configuration in mind but it wont work frown.gif

I ended up with the H80 on the back with push / pull but even without the second fan it blocks the top fan bay. You might be able to use a single fan mounted outside of the case with only the radiator inside but you then have to worry about getting the cables back inside. There's also the option of mounting the fans in the top outside of case but then you lose the nice grill smile.gif

my pictures coming soon...
