Thanks man, Is that just in push config? do you think you would have enough room for push pull?
post #3092 of 10491
So I am done with building my rig. First off I want to apologize for the stock cooler (will be ugrading to a Seidon 240M push/pull config)
Also sorry about the wires, the fan wires will be removed when I get a fan controller.
This case is so easy to build and it looks so awesome. Wires are pretty easy to move around and get them where you want them. Can hide almost everything under the motherboard. With the removable motherboard tray it makes it much easier to do stuff under it.

Booting time is about 10-15 seconds. Haven't really taken the time, but damn it's fast.

Specs:
Gainward GTX 770
Intel i5-4670k stock
ASUS Z87-K
HyperX 3k SSD
8GB Vengeance 1600MHz

I'd like to thank people on this thread for showing off this incredible case and making me buy it.
Any tips are of course highly welcome. Could add more pictures if requested. Will update when I get the new CPU cooler.

I have just a push configuration with two scythe gentle typhoon 1850's mounted between front panel and case. If I wanted to do a push pull i have plenty of room as most 120mm fans are 25mm thick (unless you opt for thicker fans obviously).

*Note: My GPU is only 254mm which is smaller compared to some of the cards that have larger coolers or even the Superclocked GPU's

Hello fellow CM HAF XB owners! I just completed my latest build using this case. Got it to look the way I wanted with minimal modding (only had to remove the 5.25" and SSD drive cages). Also removed the mesh on the top panel and replaced it with a sheet of acrylic for a nice window look. Overall very happy and impressed with this case!

To those of you with water loops, what do you recommend I do/get to add an air trap? I have the Swiftech h220 system and I added a single 120mm rad and my 7970 is water cooled. It is extremely difficult to get all the air out of the loop because, I think, the way the 240mm radiator is mounted with the fill port to the side. The rad has a reservoir on it.

Thanks much, Ramsey! I am pretty satisfied with the temps on this build. I'm not looking to break any speed/temp records with this one, just something that looks and runs cool. I have a mild oc on my 3570k of 4.3ghz and after 30 minutes on Prime95 the hottest core hit 81 degrees celsius:

The dual GTX 680s are oc'd to 1215mhz and after 30 minutes on Unigine Valley the top card peaked at 56 degrees celsius:

All in all I'm happy with it! biggrin.gif

Has anyone else been getting color glitches in games since nvidia update 320.18?
post #3100 of 10491
Any recommendations on ssds? I want fast, reliable, and under $100. I'm thinking 60gb should be plenty, as it's only for use as a boot drive for Win 7 Ulti.

I've been leaning towards the Mushkin enhanced chronos deluxe 60gb, as it is very fast, and only $80, but I don't know it's reliability, or if Sandforce is still something people should avoid.
