Awesome build. What size rad/gpu can you fit in the front? It looks like a tight fit. I was hoping to maybe get a RX240 in there but upside down so that the ports are at the bottom. Do you think it would fit?

i think every single DD case can be customizable any way you want, just need to talk to them before placing an order (i think, dont quote me on that)

and please man, i know you are busy with real life stuff.. BUT update this thread any moment you can please..

the RX240 wont fit upside down. i wouldnt even fit if i had mounted the fans inside the case. and with the rx240, youre not gonna be able to get anything much bigger than a 670-sized pcb. its best to get a half-sized rad esp since kepler runs so cool anyway.

i've got this machine up and running at the moment but im not really happy with the way ive done the loop. im also getting the front panel re cut to accommodate the fans mounted on the outside. and being an acrylic sheet thats already been cut once, im not sure how it will turn out.

also, my CPU clocks are absolutely ****. getting a max of 4.2ghz with this i7 3770k.

any ideas if its just a bad silicon or would it be the mobo?

Probably would be a lot more expensive though and it isn't a cheap case in the first place rolleyes.gif

Hmmm. Well I also have an EX240, but I have 570gtx so it is longer than the ultra short 670 pcb. Would I fit? They should have made the case like 20mm taller haha.

it wont be that much more ex if you get custom stuff from them. i got my panels in a different colour config than the ones listed on their site. ended up being around 30 bucks more.

the front panel will not fit with the fans mounted outside, thats why im looking to get it cut properly. and, unfortunately, a 570 will not fit in this case with pretty much any rad. it has to be a short pcb if you want to water cool it.

DD also make a MATX version of this case. you might be able to fit the 570 into that one.
