Alright, awesome. Thanks for the measurements!

So.....



Just got the loop finished today! I really do like this case, has ample space for everything, only casualty on it was my MSI 670 which I had to bend that decorative black shroud that was on it so it didn't hit the fan, but other than that, it works out pretty well for what I wanted to do!

Would also like to mention, the Maximus V Formula fits completely fine inside of this case. Even though they state it as an "extended ATX" board, there's still about an inch of space before the edge of the mobo hits the edge of the motherboard tray.

I"m seeing more reviews on newegg with people frying their HDD's in the X-dock, this is really making me nervous if I ever wanna try to use mine.

Lareson, can you post another pick so I can see how well that eATX mobo fits in?
post #444 of 10491
Sure, this is probably the best one I have that shows the mobo in place with how much room I have:



Mind you, the Maximus V Formula is a faux E-ATX. It has to be classified as that as it's bigger than the ATX standard, but it's not as big as a true E-ATX. From the screws on the far right side, it only stick out about a 1/2 inch more than a standard ATX size board. A real E-ATX board will not fit in this case.

A couple pages back, a guy took out the xdock board and just used a regular sata cable and sata power cable. It seems like the board is only held in by a couple screws. So you can do that if you fear that your x dock is faulty.

I thought I'd share how my temps are going.



Seems to stay pretty cool, with only about a 10C difference between idle and full load. Much better than I was getting with my H50!

Maybe find yourself an old hdd that you don't really care about to test both docks for a few weeks, I know that option sounds strange but that is what I plan on doing. I have an 80GB drive that is really noisy and slow. I will never use it for anything else so it's going to be my test object. I myself need the X-dock feature for many reasons so I am going to remove my pcb plate and check all solder points/ resisters (if any) for defects just in case.
