What block? Probably just minor trimming, or if its plastic it will probably deform enough to work w/o modding.

Same as yours bro XSPC Raystorm Copper. Is it fit without modding the backplate?

Although I'm using the Asus P8Z77-I I will be using a EK Supremacy CSQ or possibly my current Swiftech Apogee II. My theme for this build is going to be blue and white kind of with all silver fittings and I was going to be running mayhems blue dye. I was planning on running all CSQ design blocks/pump tops as well.

Very hard to promote this case, I guess it will be only me from Malaysia who are buying this case..

Many said cannot fit ATX PSU, cannot fit long GPU, bla bla bla..

This is clearly a case for a COMPACT system that can fit highest performance but smallest possible HW.

Others also complaining on the price and compare it with ordinary mass production case.. that is sick..

For me, I'm buying CS because it is a piece of art. Every inch of the case is made to perfection. The design is very well thought. All the planning to production is done by enthusiast for enthusiast. This is the best and 100% pure ITX case.

Thx Aliff! thumb.gif Agree that some limitations are there & necessary given the size, but no need to compromise performance. What graphics cards won't fit within the 267/301mm limits? AFAIK all modern 2-slot cards are under 301.

For my Raystorm Copper I did mod the backplate quite a bit for the mobo. Not sure if its an old design (bought it used) but the proximity of the plate to the solder on the back of the mobo made me nervous so I trimmed around the msata port and covered it in electrical tape to be certain nothing would short out.

Alif my man, you asked what block I'd be using..

well - to be honest I'm a lil skeptic as to which route to go with my clients except for my bro's build - I've been looking into the Heatkiller Black chrome 3.0 edition. There were a couple of reason for going with that block - one was its color scheming and the other was that the block doesn't need a backplate to add pressure to the blocks mounting.



In fact I contacted Watercool.de and they said as of late 2010 they stopped supplying the backplate in their package since they now provide bolts to mount behind the mobo. You could yet get the backplate but at an additional charge. No backplate means the option to add that msata without any modding.

* for my bro's build a lil teaser;
white tubing
Heatkiller 3.0 chrome/black
Heatkiller GPU-X Black/chrome
rad - would want to go for an AX series, but the ports seem to conflict with the top end of the case...might need to PM SLE

Also need to dig up those screw dimension for the AX rad's thinking.gif

I suppose the one reason I'm able to promote a bit of this case is due to the fact that the space my client have at their disposal is at a premium. so a smaller footprint case is all you need for a nimble and functional desktop/workstation. Suppose the people you talk to have more than 600sft as their bedrooms tongue.gif some food for thought in order to promote the case to a different crowd - get my drift aliff?
