Nice looking case and as well all of your builds!

But too bad Cooler Master's customer service and rma is downright terrible and especially what nickt1862 went through whom I feel for him by his frustrations that show in his posts from his 4 case in a row ordeal and just unbelievable. I know how he feels being I own 9 Cooler Master cases and the ordeals I've had to deal with this company.

I hope that you all enjoy your cases and not to be offensive hope that you never have to deal from the potential malfunctions from that pressure touch power and reset switch array as in my opinion are not as durable as the old fashioned much more proven mechanical switches which can be cheaply and easily changed years down the road verses in that time period that PCB can potentially no longer to be had.

First boot after installing my hardware + W/C in the case..
Everything seams to be running fine, and at extreme low temps!! biggrin.gif
CPU: 20 c idle, 34c stress test prime95 (granted that I'm running in stock config atm..)
GPU: 33 c idle, 42c stress test FurMark (also stock config)
Will post pics when I got my OC back and ran some tests smile.gif

But looking really good at this point!
a bit noisy for my taste tbh.. think im gonna see if I can lower the fans a bit without hurting the performance.

Uhhh....thanks I guess. I'm not sure where you get the idea that the power switch is a pressure touch though as mine definitely has a mechanical switch too it. There were some people originally upset because it acted as a pressure touch when they forced 140mm fans into the front of the case causing the button to bind, but there's most definitely a travel to the button and a noticeable mechanical click when operating it.

Here is the final look (I think)


With Flash/Without Flash


With Flash/Without Flash

Here is some info on my old temps vs. my new

It is worth to add that my air cooling did pretty well too smile.gif
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
ARCTIC COOLING Accelero Xtreme GTX Pro
(the stock cooler easily got to 80-90 degrees AT STOCK clock :O )


CPU Air Cooled 2.4@3.0GHz
Idle: 36, Full load: 70


CPU Water Cooled 2.4@3.0GHz
Idle: 26 Full load: 50


GPU Air Cooled 670@740MHz
Idle: 41, Full load: 67


GPU Water Cooled 670@740MHz
Idle: 33, Full load: 45

Now THAT is what I like to see!

Just ordered a Fan Controller, hoping to bring down the noise a tat and still keep some good cooling scores

Thx for all the good ideas and info for/about this case!!

Edit:
Oh yeah.. almost forgot to post pics of a little side project tongue.gif


Upgrade from old Old INCREDIBLE OLD Logitech Media keyboard (yes.. that is its actual name biggrin.gif )
and a Func from before they "died" with burn marks and all in all worn out, mouse mat
To: Logitech G710+, the new Func Surface 1030 XL and ofc new gliders for my G5 Mouse tongue.gif

GaMbi.

Wow 9 Cooler Master cases!  Anyway thanks for "feeling for me" as I've gone through enough and much more than most would tolerate for sure.

 

All I can say at this juncture is that we'll / I'll see what happens or not next.  I'm looking to acquire two new cases from one or two lucky company's who earn my business, so fate will determine this. smile.gif  But I will not wait long at all as my (i7 build) now in parts that cost enough is not going to stay collecting dust as it's all there to eventually use and enjoy very very soon.

 

The switches you speak of is sought of a pressure switch but more than likely a popped up foil depressing a tiny black surface switch underneath that white assembly on top where the front panel button engages that.  How durable it'll be remains to be seen, but being that I'm a bit old school I wouldn't have minded a regular mechanical switch for both power and reset for the reasons you mentioned.

 

Thanks for your thoughts.

Now you'll have to find room to install a HAF XB case in there. tongue.gif j/k

Thanks Nick. TBH, I really really would like to add a CarPuter. But I am clueless. Even more so when dealing with CANBUS vehicles. redface.gif

Very nice. I love the colors and the look. This case is so sexy with all the goodies on top.

Similar to what I am building, but.... I am stuck at work and my final WC parts are sitting on my doorstep. I have been waiting to finish my XB for a month.

I am so useless right now.
