I opted for the IV Gene-z over the V Gene because I found it for $90 over on the forums. I really couldn't justify spending at least another $100 for the V as I didn't think the extra features it had were really worth that price tag.

Thanks for the interest!

Oh thanks for the reply, pics can't wait biggrin.gif and I understand you

The front will only fit one 140mm or two 120mm fans. So don't buy four 140mm fans!

Maybe I am wrong... Some reviews say it will only fit one 140mm in front but AnandTech says it will fit two. I get my case in about an hour so can check for sure.

We'll see how it goes. I ended up buying an H110 cooler (kind of defeating the title of the thread) once I read that it's compatible. It's here, and so is my monitor. I have a couple pictures, but they're coming from my iPhone 4 and I can't quite figure out the lighting. Does anyone have any advice on how to take nice pictures?

EDIT: Found a thread. Put white on your monitor, aim it at your rig. wink.gif

Here are some long awaited pictures. Keep in mind that none of them are of the new case since that's here later today, but they do include the parts I will be/am currently using.

Going to bump this in anticipation of the new case. It's going to be another7 hours untilI can start building.

The build is done! All I need to do is get (a) fan controller, which one of you should recommend to me wink.gif to hook up my final fan which is currently lifeless due to a lack of headers, and swap out the PSU for an AX650 with sleeved cables. Other than that, this baby is good to go! Maybe a bit more cable management, but this thing is DONE.

Good question! I tried to do that for 30 minutes b efore I realized they're not using a full size 280mm rad. The 280mm can only be mounted the other way around. They're using a 240. There just isn't enough clearance for the 8pin 12V cable if the tubes are on that side. Hopefully you like the build and it was informative! If you want any more pictures of anything specific or some information about something specific, go ahead and ask!

Oh I see well it still looks great and I am really loving the case and the build. I will let you know if I have more questions thumb.gif

Very nice setup you got, thanks for sharing images and info with us.
I am extremely tempted to get this case, probabaly already would have if Newegg had it in stock (never purchased anything through NCIX and they seem to be the only ones who have this case, is their customer service and delivery speed as good as Neweggs?)...

Anyway, to my question concerning your build/this case....
I was planning on doing push/pull with H100i in front of case (already have it, along with 4 SP120's) but my video card is same length as the one your using and not sure if this would work. What is the length from the end of GPU to the front interior of case? Is push/pull with H100i a bad idea in case this small and best just to mount on top of case like all the images I see? I have seen unboxing videos saying that 240 rad can go in the front, wish there was an image or video to demonstrate this to give us an idea on what it looks like and how much space is left.

Thanks again for sharing your build with us, I really like it looks nice n' tidy.
If anyone can answer questions above it would be greatly appreciated as I am doing my first build and had eye set on 650d till this came out, now I'm undecided on which to get the 650d mid-tower or this large micro-tower.
