Yeah the panel is definitly not anything special. It is a bit better than what I have been using though. Ill get the ram and the monitor for $150.

If it doesn't fit. Then just cut out the front panel and hang the rad on rad mounts. should be able to pick up an extra 3/8" of space to fit the 7990 in

I don't think I need to cut out the mesh, isn't it "removable"? From pictures, it seems to be held by bend clamps of sort.
Guess I'll see this week when I get it! biggrin.gif

not the mesh. The front of the main case. Although if somone with a uncut case can measure from the I/O panel to the inside of the front of the main case. Then by deducting the depth of a H100I, then you'll know if your 7990 will fit.

It was mentioned earlier that someone with a NZXT Kraken and a 7990 only had millimetres to spare. The Kraken is 27mm thick and the H100i is 30mm thick from what I remember. You might need to get the dremel out.

Otherwise I'll probably try to screw the whole radiator plus the fans on the outside of the case where the mesh is suppose to be. I've made a lot of thinking.. and hope that this case does the trick. I will see when I get it =)
Will be an interesting build.

Ere a fun case to make some fresh ideas on mods, casting your eye over this thread. You'll see a lot of differant ways people have come up with for mounting rads in the not so little XB. Have fun with your build and don't forget to throw up some pics when your done.

I will try to remember the pics as I go along the way, usually forget to take pictures more to post them tongue.gif
I've had my eyes on Bitfenix Prodigy for some time but realized that I would run into complications. First, needed to buy a new MB, and CPU + the case itself. So this case gave me the best option. Right now I'm housing the components in a Fractal Design XL (not the R2) this one was the first release/batch of the case. It has the wall/floor between the MB compartment PSU compartment.

I've already done that. It's ~13 1/8" from PCI Bracket to Front Rad Mount. ~333mm

 

I posted pics of it in here a few times

NP. I think the Kraken comes in different sizes.
