Well I the cards isn't the problem. I'll have those when it's time. I'm just haven't decided on them & I won't go with a 690 cause it's 2GB & I've had three 670 2GB cards already...

Thank you George, that will be awesome. thumb.gif

Now here is where I start having problems a few more MM on the top would have made this case even more awesome (Comfortable space to mount a 60mm rad in push pull), That is my grief with the switch, that you put in a lot of effort towards a a great product, a little extra headroom would be nice.

There are some 57Mm rads and those would be just perfect in this case and i'm pretty sure people will come up with creative ways to mount rads that don't have native support.

Will I get this case - Yes
Is it more than what I would need - Yes
is it a great deal - Heck Yes, $350 is a steal (not paying extra for USB 3, HDD mounts, couple fans, and filters or rad mounts is a lot of savings)

Will there be an updated top (3rd party pretty sure there might be)

Anyways putting the conversation of what size rad will fit in the top lets all just wait for the official confirmation (Yes I'm guilty of jumping the gun and not waiting)

I apologize if my post offends anyone and with that said, I cant wait for this case to come out so I can transfer my build from the switch to this monsta.

George and team great job on the case, keep it up.

Exactly. I agree completely and feel the same way on all points.

This case looks awesome. I don't watercool, so I wonder how good the air cooling will be. George had said the airflow will be much better than the 800d. Hope so!
post #1885 of 5816
Thats what makes me so curious too ! Airflow.. .might buy it for my next build! lol

You've got to remember that those water cooling components are going to out last most of the hardware in your case. Other than the full cover vga blocks. I think that its well worth it for higher overclocks and complete silence.

With that logic why even buy the 900d to begin with? Its not necessary for air and you could argue that the money would be better spent elsewhere.

Once you get a couple good rads, a decent cpu block, a solid reservoir, pump and a good case then you don't really need to spend more. If you are the type of person who ALWAYS has to have the latest thing, then yeah its a lot of money. But there are some people who are still using TFC rads and some of the previous cpu blocks and are just doing fine. Only thing you have to change for sure is maybe the tubing once a year and the GPU block when you upgrade.

I did try. I bought the rad, fittings, cpu block. I was about $250 deep and was like...I didn't even buy the tubing, pump and gpu blocks yet. Ouch. Had to put the plan in reverse.
I could have bought a used GTX 690 with that additional money if I completed the loop. A few extra MHz can't replace a better CPU or GPU(s).

I'm not buying the 900D. Just interested in it's design.
Just got my Cosmos Pure in yesterday, and I'm more than satisfied.

I feel you on that. I make money with my computer, play games on it & it helps me with a lot of everyday things. I need a good safe place to house all this goodness! 900D is sturdy, I own a 650D & a Switch 810. The 650D is leaps ahead of the Switch far as strength & looks. The 650D is an Elegant case. Quality & Construction is like no other case I've seen. I'm planning on having it for 3 or 4 yrs hopefully. Praying they don't make anything else, getting hard to explain things to my wife when she look @ credit card statements....

George and team great job on the case, keep it up.

See, the thing is, we could play this game all day, Why not add a few more mm for a Monsta rad in push pull? And while we're att it, why not make it work with 38mm fans in push pull? And then we might as well make it compatible with 420mm monsta rads in case they did that. And what if somebody wants 140mm monsta rads? Then what if somebody creates a 90mm thick rad? or a 100mm thick rad?

You see where I'm going - at some point, you have to freeze the specs and actually put this thing into production, otherwise you've just built a refrigerator-sized PC case that has radio controlled wheels so you can drive it around with your iPhone. Basically a Dalek.

I remember the requirement was 60mm thick rads with push-pull, so I'm pretty sure 110mm was the requirement. It might have grown due to other size limitations (optical drive height or ID height), and if you remove the top mesh, you can stack fans and rads on the outside pretty easily, so I'm fairly certain that people will be building ridiculous watercooling systems with Monstas in it one way or another.
