That is why I proposed the Switch 810 White / Black / Matte Black / Gun Metal $169 with Dwood Switch 810 pedestal


Without Pedestal

And I changed the Cooler the H100i for the CPU and have went with this case.
COOLER MASTER HAF X RC-942

And with that, I shouldn't have to take out any fans the tower comes with to install the H100i ??

Grab either the 830 or the 840 Pro not the 840 since its slower and less warranty.

Because your idea of what is good and what isn't is totally the same as what everyone else will think. /sarcasm

Cases are not like CPUs and RAM, after a certain point, it's all preference. Give someone a list of what is good, and let them make up their own mind.

Hey guys after looking closely at the 810 Switch with people who have it set up it looks so slick and clean. Think this will be the one to get for sure now the question is, where would be the easiest place to put the H100i Corsair water cooler at?

First of all Lets get one thing straight, your sarcasm isn't needed unless you have some constructive criticism wink.gif Since he narrowed it down to H100i the switch 810 would be a much better choice than a Haf X rc, I also posted pictures and videos to prove my point but it was mostly to show how the cases differ and at the end he may go with either case he wants or even his original choice the T. level 10 Gt which he picked. Next time if you have something to contribute, please by all means do so rather than trying to show yourself off rolleyes.gif

I didn't try to show my self off, I said let him pick the case he wants instead of forcing your opinion on him. wink.gif

That is my constructive criticism.

As much as I like the HAF series, and the XM in particular, I also make certain that I give them a lot of choice after stating my own opinion. You could learn from that. rolleyes.gif

The best place would probably be above, straight-forward setup but not limited to. You could in the future upgrade to a custom water loop or switch to air cooling, it's all up to you and Dwood can make you a pedestal for either putting extra components I.E Radiator / PSU or whatever floats your boat, here has many options just contact him and let him know what you want. Now there are other cases than the Switch 810, you could make a seperate thread where you have other OCNers propose a case for your build and why it would be good for you. Post your components in there so everyone knows what you are working with, set a budget with some criteria like color / size, etc. So far your setup is looking awesome just as long as you are happy with and in now way you feel like i pressured you into getting anything. Good Luck with the build.

Ok, I am going to be the bigger man here and drop it since this is going nowhere fast and in no shape or form is helping the OP.

Thanks I am going to do the above setup just put it ontop.

Look forward to it and I thank you all for the help.

I'm glad I decided on the 810 though in all honesty, with the water cooling, it will look so much nicer through the window, with the other components, not a huge fan covering everything.

All this is what I am running with my old GTX 570.

Sony Optiarc 24X DVD Burner

NZXT SWITCH 810 White

Western Digital WD Black 1tb 7200 RPM

CORSAIR HX Series HX750 Gold

ASUS Rampage IV Gene LGA 2011

i7 3930k

H100i

Windows 8 64 bit

Samsung 840 Pro 128gb SSD

SAMSUNG 16GB (4 x 4GB)

GTX 570 SC (Upgrading to 780 when they hit retail)

Grand Total: $1,730.66
