stock cpu cooler looks a bit out of place, but I assume its going to have a water block soon?

While building my rig I was looking for ideas. That's when I came across this thread.
I must say that there's some great rigs showcased in here. thumb.gif
Completed the build about a week back and here are some shots.

Did anyone else have some trouble with cable management? just got this case and cable management iisn't as neat as I would like. I tried to route everything through the back, but then I couldn't manage to get the back panel back on wihout it flexing/bulging likd crazy.

Yeah back panel is a tight fit. If you take a look at a lot of the cases on here it is defiantly possible to have good cable management. I recently assembled mine and it's very tidy. I'll post a pic up some time.

I was a bit disappointed that by have two top fans I couldn't mount a cd drive in the top drive bay and I had to use a 120mm fan on the other side because the 140 fowled on the radiator. I think if the roof was an inch taller it would be perfect

I remember asking the same questions a few pages back in this thread smile.gif

This is what the 300R is currently looking like, mind you, i'm running a 3770 non K, thus still on the stock cooler.

Any of you guys had a problem getting the back panel on after running the ATX cable behind the tray? For some reason, the HX620's ATX cable is one bloody fat bastard, I have to literally pry the back panel back on every time I have to do any cable management.

A little while later I happened upon duct tape, and then i just duct taped all the errant cables to the back of the tray, mind you the side panel still slightly bulges, but it fits pretty well. You just have to make sure you have no cables blocking the part where the side panel "clips" go into the chassis (I noticed moving cables away from the bottom and top rails where the side panel clips in helped a lot)

If you put the radiator fan on the other side of the radiator, you should be able to fit another 140mm in the top.

It will be pretty tight, but should fit. This is what it looks like for me, I have an H60 too (although not V2) and two 140mm fans in the top. Nice rig by the way. smile.gif
