Kinda sucks that this case doesn't have an eject button for the optical drive.

If you press on the face plate with enough force, will it eject a disc?

This is going to be a HTPC case.. there will be times when I will turn on the PC for a brief second just to remove a blu-ray rental.

The only thing I do not like about the case is the slim optical bay. I just use an external enclosure for a blu-ray optical drive.

my build:(i haven't got all photos uploaded yet, i will post as they come)

Before i put the side panels back on:


The only part of the sleeving that worked:


My bad attempt at cable management:


With the fan panel on:



This is still awaiting water cooling, proper sleeving and some minor soldering (i broke the on button).
Does anyone know why my bitfenix fan needs to be push started? how can i fix that?
sorry for taking the pics with a rotten potato

nice window, very neatly done. Now you need to put in a great looking cooler to admire with that window wink.gif

yeah, it will either be a nzxt havik 140 or (more likely) a WC loop.

So I just changed out my Galaxy gtx 670 with a Sapphire 7950 dual-x and I couldn't be happier with the temperature results. I now never go over 65 C even at full load with the card overclocked. This is with the fan speed set at 40% which I can't hear over the 180mm top fan on low. Much better then the 80 C or higher I was getting before.



That window is awesome by the way. thumb.gif Might have to add one in the future.

nice card. with the window, just remember that if it's any higher than mine it won't fit.
i'm attaching a bong cooler to my pc soon.

I plan on using this case for my next HTPC build.

Here are the components that I have lined up:

i5 3570k
asus 5850 direct cu video card - currently own
8 gb gskill ripjaws x - currently own
corsair HX620 psu - currently own

what would be a good mobo & cpu h/s to buy?

I would like to O/C to ~4.4ghz - if possible
Also, the ability to boot/shut down via IR remote - I think that means CIR header support?


Thanks for the help.

heatsink: hyper 212 evo, fits perfectly but will block one ram slot.
mobo, asrock extreme4-m
second cooler option, a giant bong
