Finally upgraded from Z87 to Z170 (and from Win7 to Win10).
However, since I havn´t really needed an ATX motherboard for almost two years now - and since I was on a smaller budget this time - I decided to go ITX.
But I also love me some room in a case to work in, so I kept my trusted Air 540. This combination lead to something what I would describe as the ugliest system I´ve ever build.
But I don´t care too much about the looks any more as long as its practical and imo there´s beauty in its uglyness. lol

Hey guys I'm about to migrate my components into a new Case. I searched for many cases and the Corsair Carbide Air 540 was the only one that caught my eye, I was set to purchasing it when the new Corsair Carbide Air 740 got released, now I'm stuck with which case to choose, they both have their ups and down, the 540 is smaller, more simple looking, cheaper, the 740 has a hinged door which I love. The two cases share very similar layouts in terms of interior , but the exterior:) look different so I don't know which one to choose. Please let me know your honest opinion on which case is the better one. Thank you !smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gifthumb.gif

Anyone using a D5 in the PSU compartment? Could you post pictures and cooling information (blocks and rads)

I was running dual DDC pumps with XSPC res tops mounted in front of my psu. The gpu/m.2 ssd loop pump gave up several nights back and I'm debating just replacing the pump and installing heatsinks on them or switching to a single loop with a D5. I'm seeing about 4"x6" of space to place a pump at the bottom in front of the psu total footprint with just taking a rough measurement with my pumps still installed.

I was thinking the EK-XRES-100-REVO-D5-PWM or EK-XRES-140-REVO-D5-PWM but total height is an issue with the 5.25 bay above so I'm not sure the total height with either of these. Another issue is the exit position of the ports with what appears to be only 4"x6" (rough estimate) of space to work with because of my Revo 1050W psu.


So if a couple people could post up links to pictures of their D5 installations in this case it would be greatly appreciated so I know what I'm doing. Gaming on a HD530 is.... well taxing lol. Want my 1080FTW back and my 3440x1440. thumb.gif

I had an EK XRES 140 (pre-REVO) combo mounted on the top back grid (wasn't using the 2.5" cage). It was ok, just a bit difficult to fill. A 100 tube would have been better.
