You can fit a 240 on the roof and maybe a 240 on the bottom so unless you plan on running an external rad its not an ideal watercooling case.

You can fit a 240 at the top (it has to be a thin rad, a thicker XPSC rad with push pull will not fit with the z77 sabertooth), a 120mm on the exhaust fan, and a 120mm at the bottom of the case. It would just be messy compared to just running a 480mm in a 900d.

Anytime you have to cram small rads like that in a case its not ideal but will get the job done.

Hopefully he makes the upgrade to the 900D!

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.


Ummm..ok. nothing you said is at odds withe what I wrote. whatever combination of fans you have creating negative pressure,it's still neg pressure. 2) I made no reference to air cooled or water cooled, or the relative impact of 1-2 degrees. I said:

is the equivalent or confirmation of my statement :

so, anyway...I agree with everything we said. biggrin.gif

Level 10 is a Gimmick Case, it's not Ideal for water cooling or top of the line air cooling

I'm not sure, probably nobody said that it's hot swap cages. You can't install Windows from USB 3.0 ports unless you will add your controller drivers inside image or onto another flash drive. So this time you need this USB 2.0 ports. Or in the future you can try to buy 5.25 top bays for 900D, mod it and put only 3.0 ports by that way. Usually motherboard has two ports (2x2), but there is 6 ports in the bay, so probably you will need PCi-E controller or connect long USB 3.0 cable with adapter to mb plug trough pci slot cover....
that is what i said......it is enough for TWO usb2.0......i dont know why corsair only give 2 usb3.0 and then give 4 usb2.0.......just i said.....it looks really stupid that put 5.25 inch usb 3.0 ports cover in the bay..... if it can be four usb3.0 and only two usb2.0 my Rampage IV Extreme will be very happy!

for the HDD cages......hoping there will be hot swapping backplane! please.....( if the HDD tray can be metal it will be even better!! even though it will be costy but who care?? at least i dont care the price as long as it comes the best quality and features!)

More than likely it's only two USB 3.0's up there for cost reasons & Mobo USB's Headers. All Motherboards don't come with two or more USB 3.0 Headers. Mine does, but you have to pay a hefty price for it. Case wouldn't fall @ the price point of $350 if it was four.

On another note, i think the case can fit a mobo like the EVGA SR-2 easily. Which is awesome to be honest.
They improved air cooling with these 2 (3?) fans intake on the front of the case. It's not bad, considering the 800D was completely worst (No Offence George, it's a great case). They learned of dust filter problem too, and corrected that with a side-removing system.
Vertical PSU, god damn it's awesome ! the 900D main part... huuuuge space for watercooling stuff, but fromm the picture George shared with us, it look hard to do Push-Pull with 6cm Rad like EK ones.
To complete, i think this case is an awesome one, i don't want to compare it with CaseLabs ones because you can't compare these beautiful cases.

So Corsair, you'll have my money for this case. I just need to know the release date now smile.gif
Really really really good job with this case George, love the work smile.gif

 

 

I haven't a clue what the 1st sentence means. A computer case is a computer case. It holds the components that make up a personal computer.

If it holds an EVGA SR-2 then the form factor would be listed and, undoubtedly crowed about by Corsair.

You're right. Both the CaseLabs and Corsair cases are beautiful. The CaseLabs is everything you could possibly want in a completely configurable, lifetime compatible case for any form factor motherboard you can imagine, with an extra kit for the highly uncommon HPTX. They use no rivets, so you can take their cases apart and mod any part you wish as easily as possible, if actually neccessary.

CaseLabs will sell you a preconfigured case to your needs. Not cases that fit only what they determine you should be using according to their standards. You, the customer, tells them what you want and they'll sell it to you.

All the difference between a Yugo and a Rolls Royce. You actually get what you pay for. Not some wysiwyg type case you buy from NewEgg.

Your CaseLabs case is built, for you, in an American factory to your specifications. Not in China by a company that just says that they're an American company.

Top quality doesn't come cheap. Never has. But you'll be assured that what you receive will be exactly what you need and/or want. No compromises. No immediate modding to install what you want.

Yes, I was quite happy with my 3 Corsair cases. But now I've had my eyes, and mind, opened to what a computer case should actually be. One that's made for me, not the masses.

Once you unpack that huge shipping crate you'll understand more than any written word or picture can tell. That CaseLabs is the epitome of custom computer cases. That's when you'll start adding up the money that you wasted on all of the other cases you've bought and then think, "I could of bought a CaseLabs case and saved all the hassle, wasted time and money trying to make them work the way I wanted."

Once and for all, you'll know for a fact, that you've just bought your 1st real computer case. And, most likely, your last case ever.
