I believe it will hold a d14, but not with a top 200mm fan installed. It will be tight. It also has a lot of room for graphics cards, pretty much any card will fit barring maybe the 7990.

While the case is far from large, the top compartment with the main board is very open. Airflow is very decent for it's size.

That said, airflow by default in the lower compartment is frankly poor. The PSU has a fresh air intake, and you can use 80mm fans too cool the internal hard drive cage, but there is no way to cool the hot swap and 5.25" bays without modifications to the case. It will also be full of all your PSU wires that are being routed to the various portions of the case.

2: you MAY be restricted on overclocking with only 240+120 radiator, but you will be able to run same / higher OC with this vs your H100 + silence your GPU.
3: Still not the full name wink.gif The thing is, not all Nvidia GeForce gtx 770's will work with the reference XSPC cooler.. so we need the full name or product number to help you out with this.
If you dont have reference PCB on your 770, you wont be able to use the XSPC witch only fits reference. EK has probably made a cooler that will fit your card if it is not reference.

*Edit
Hmm, might be a Nvidia card then. should be reference smile.gif
Try to locate the product number on the box, should revile its secrets.

1 - I am going to replace the H100 with a custom loop... I really like the layout of the XSPC combo of the res/pump. Also I want the 120mm rad with a little thickness to it and a 240mm rad to replace the h100 rad... the way I was going to run the loop would be res/pump>240rad>cpu>120rad>gpu then back to the pump/res
2 - the h100 isnt connected to my gpu i dont think theres a way to connect it if I tried. But I think with the cpu I will get better temps when at idle and also with a load.
3 - the gpu is def a Nvidia card I checked all over the card and the box it came in 100% Nvidia....

You mean a panel entirely made from acrylic? Not that I'm aware of.

My XB EVO finally arrived yesterday! I was so psyched to get started I gutted my old tower immediately, but then had to stop because there was dust build-up in most of the components and it was too late to properly clean all of them. So I'll resume tonight, and hopefully will have the whole thing assembled by the weekend.



Also, a question. I have a 3.5" smartcard / memory card reader that I'd like to keep using, but the only external bays in the XB are 5.25". Does anyone know if an adapter like this would work with the XB's 5.25" bay? Or should I just look for a new 5.25" card reader?
