i cant wait to see some proper reviews and build logs on this. one review in particular i am mainly looking forward to and that is by Mr TinyTomLogan over at TTL towers. some great work done by him. I hope you will grace us with a work log Master Freez

I'll do my best. The only factors now are money, new camera and 900D availabilty

While what you are saying is true in some cases it can hardly be applied as a general rule of thumb for positive vs. negative air pressure.
It's All highly dependent on the specific setup and number of fans used as intake/exhaust and their positioning. For example in my current case I have 4 intakes and 1 exhaust, and when I turn all the fans to max RPM for benching air is thrown out of the case extremely fast.
Another consideration for people who watercool all the main components (CPU, GPU/'s, whatever else you wish) is that a slightly higher ambient case temp has a negligible impact at most on watercooled equipment, and anything that isn't worth watercooling won't suffer much either.
Just the benefit of less dust itself is worth any temp penalty for me. My previous case had negative air pressure and it was horrible trying to clean every crevice like the front bay slots and USB sockets of all the dust that got stuck in them.

yer i thought the controller would be powerful enough but its always worth getting another opinion. i have found a 4 way splitter with no molex to power so i think i would be using a fair few of them. i think i would just be using 120's throughout as i know they generally have better static pressurefor rads than 140's. Just out of curiosity why would you put 140 on a seperate channel to the 120s, is it because the 140 would have different rpm and power requirements.

also i was wondering if anyone has any ideas about where to add some colour accents on the 900d. previously i was thinking about spraying the mesh of the tj11 and inside the midplate fan housings, along with the front bay covers just to add a bit of colour and contrast. however with the 900d the mesh covers a large space so instead of colour accents it would be more of a block of colour.

Smoked plexi would probably be the easiest and best looking IMO...

Does this have rubber feet? Case is gonna be heavy with fully watercooled, so should be better to be able to slide this case on a floor, wheels is one option, but those ruins the looks of this case.

post #2137 of 5816
Looks like I'm getting this, another 480 rad, speed down my fans to 500 rpm and a light box as middle plate smile.gif

Great job Corsair!

Smoked plexi...good idea! Not sure about where i can get smoked panel.

The only problem for me is that it should be cuted in pieces to get it ouy any time. Also i will try to cut hols for BitsPower Crystal Link tubes.

Mounting....no idea how to do it.The only easy way is to drill holes and tap them for screws,

not sure they would even need tapping, if (like me) you dont have the tool. you could just drill a hole and use nuts. right angled brackets seem to be an option, its just where to fit them as well.

Nope wheee.gif Nuts will not work in this case when your bottom part is filled up. So the only easy and fast removing plate way is only the screws outside( Other way is double sided tape like from MNPCTech but it will be hard to remove, need some pretty good pressure to get parts of mid plate back.
