post #2661 of 10491
All my parts arrived a few hours ago! But I wasn't home to sign for them, So now I have to wait a few hours before picking them up. This shall be a fun build, I'm considering doing a build log (Pics and stoof).

I really want to buy this case, I am just curious.. do the side panels scratch pretty easily? I had a CM storm scout as my first case and i remembered it getting pretty roughed up quickly... same with the side window which really did not look great for awhile. I know the cm parts store sells almost every part pretty cheap though.

Really considering it for a haswell rig, a swiftech h220 would fit easily right

The coating on this case is pretty rugged stuff. It's a powdercoat not paint, and it's pretty thick. I've had mine since they came out, and I have yet to have any kind of scratches or visible wear. Still looks factory fresh. thumb.gif

For the ppl asking about W/C for this case, I thought I would throw in my two cents

I recently switched some components in my case and here is my results


changed from: 2x140mm + 1x120mm BitFenix Spectre PRO and HW-Labs Black Ice - GTX 280
to: 3x120mm Noctua NF-F12 and HW-Labs Black Ice GTS 240
witch improved my temps a great deal and left my build dead silent!

1x240 rad (30mm thick / 30FPI)
1x120 rad (30mm thick / 30FPI)
3x120 fans

Under W/C
Q6600 2.4 @ 3.0
Nvidia GTX 275
Prime95 running over night: 45-50 degrees (compared to around 60 with old fans / rad)

I would guess one or two more GPUs wouldnt bring the temps up too much?

My build log can be found Here if anyone is interested smile.gif

Man, that's a pretty slick build you have right there smile.gif
I am nearly finished with my W/C, should be complete on Monday, after EK sends me the right freakin' length SLI adapter for my cards...

What kind of tubing did you get? Brand and size-wise, I mean.

You can see all the components used for this in my build log that I linked to smile.gif there are also some more pics wink.gif
but just to make things easy: XSPC High Flex - 19/12,7mm (3/4''OD 1/2'''ID)- UV-Blue

Nice! That's the same size I'm using, although I'm going with UV Green MasterKleer tubing. In my planning, I have noticed that this particular sized tubing doesn't like to bend too much, or at least my brand doesn't.

Question about your build, though. What is your loop order for your W/C? You have a lot of long running tubing through there.
post #2669 of 10491
ress->pump(in the basement)->240->CPU->120->GPU->back to ress
Come on ;D they are not that long.. ok two of them are (240->CPU and GPU->ress) but having those long, will allow me to have the rest really shot smile.gif
flow seams good
I AM thinking about getting some angle fittings for some of the components.. that would bring down the length of some of the tubes.

yea, they don't kink easy, or tough I had a sharp bend from ress to pump that kinked on me frown.gif fixed easy with a bit shorter tube / softer bend
but then again, I havent tried any other tubes.

suggesting another loop?

*edit* oh, you mean that they DO kink easy when bend?
Mine doesn't.. one of the main reasons I chose them.
