Another new XB owner here.
Waited for this case almost 3 months. Dealers here really take their time. jealoussmiley.gif

I'm currently running a stock Intel CPU cooler (I was on water before). But I will probably soon buy Noctua NH-D14 because this stock cooler is waaay to loud. :x
And stock CM fans are also incredibly loud.wackosmiley.gif



P.S. Nice keyboard, eh? biggrin.gif

Yea i took a look frown.gif bought them more for looks, but now that i have them i'll give them a try and replace with some noctuas if anyhting goes wrong. I have a question though, caught the post you snagged about replacing the power led thumb.gif , think its a 1.8mm ? Anyone have a size and or type for it ?

Tried contacting cooler master support about the size of the led in the power button, will post if i get a reply.

Made up for the lack of 3.5 bays by getting a 5.25 to 3.5 converter, giving me another 3.5 slot, easily covered by the stock 5.25 cover.

Also, a normal-hole layout 200mm *will fit* with a little force to get two out of 4 to line up. No vibration noise so far on this 200mm XIGMATEK.

Case is virtually silent with the fans I've chosen.

Specs:
Intel Core i7 3770K @ 4.5GHz @ 1.225V
Corsair XM3 4x4GB @ 1866 @ 1.55V
2x SLI EVGA 670 FTW @ 1280/1800 on both
Corsair AX860 PSU
2x OCZ Vertex 4 128GB SSDs
2x Seagate 2TB Barracuda, 1x Hitachi 1.5TB
NZXT Kraken X60 w/ 4x Akasa Apache 140mm push/pull
1x Enermax TB Silence (non-PWM, still silent) as an intake on the back

What fan is that on the top there? The white LED one.

I am considering getting this case... one thing I was wondering is how you can use the motherboard tray. Does it provide ESD protection when working on it out of the case naturally or do you have to take other precautions when working on your motherboard?

I have had mine out dozens of times with no ill effects.

Thanks for the reply. I have been reading up on ESD and PCs and supposedly you can damage your board or components with static and not even be aware of it. It might degrade your components in a way you aren't even noticeably aware of. That's not a huge issue but would like to avoid it if possible.
