Done.

My main concern is the cable management of the R3. Say what you will about it, not having removable disc-cages and having that TIIIIINY space behind the mobo-plate is really bad. And buying an R4 when you already own a 6 month old R3 seems stupid.


Well you can see my rig. If you had that and 300$ you obviously had to put on your computer, what would you do? (Probably deserves a thread of its own, but Ill start here smile.gif )

Removing the disc-cages is as easy and using a 3mm drill bit and drilling out pop rivets.
I have R2 and yes, there is no extra space, but there is enough for cable management if you use a little logic in arranging cables... like putting the main mobo cable where no other cable have to go over or under it. I'm running 7 HDDs, 2 optical, 4 case and 3 CPU fans with 2 PWM cable splitter with a TX650v2 with cables fitting no problem.
