Just a change of case, no new components other than the white NZXT LEDs. they were on minimum brightness when I took these photos though guiltysmiley.gif

Probably going to put some more white into there as the blue is a bit over powering the white, but i want there to still be blue.


















What are those blue fans and the cpu heatsink? loving the look.

Okay, ordered my case, should be here soon, keeping my fingers crossed. A few questions though...

I got the mesh top, if nothing else I will use it for passive cooling.

Is there a guide somewhere to painting cases and parts of a case? I would love for a blue/black theme.

Also, I won't be doing any extreme overclocking, mainly moving most of my current PC into it which is an A10 5800k, Asus A85X-V pro board I think....etc etc....Since temps won't be a HUGE issue, is there a good looking aftermarket cpu cooler out there? (blue or black theme preferrably)....

Also any tweaks or DIY you all think that I should know of regarding this case? I'm already going to take out the hotswap bays, and PROBABLY use an external cd-drive, not sure yet. (I hard use CD's anymore)

A Xigmatek Dark Knight would be quite fitting if you replaced the fans

Those are Xigmatek Crystal CLF-F1251 fitted on a Corsair H80. I bought five of these for my Cooler Master Elite 430. You can get them in red, blue, green and white

Hello.

One quick question to the CM212Evo users.
Does a cooler CM 212 EVO fit with a MegaFlow inside the case?

I have a friend who has one, and there is no problem to change our coolers. V8 and Hyper 212.
post #1636 of 10491
the 212 evo & the top 200mm fan wont fit i think
post #1637 of 10491
you can find a slim 200mm somewhere but i can't find the model back

With the 212 or the EVO you have to use a 20mm thick 200mm case fan. This one to be precise: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835345003

You will also have to jerryrig it to get it to stay. For reason CM thought it would be awesome to use non-standard sized 200mm mounting holes in its case.
