My previous case was 500R... :) It was a nice case. I had a problem with the side panel not being closed properly due to my cables so I had to sell it.

I said "OR" and pointed to the pic as I don't recall the name of it so I couldn't link it, sorry for the confusion, I was asking feedback for all 3.

Also thanks for the tips, and from the looks of other builds this case seems to handle fairly well w/ WC w/ no issues I take it ? Was starting to worry for everything I was running if it would be wiser to go for the 900D or if this case would be fine up to 3x SLI OC'd Titan + 4960x OC'd ?

Sorry for all the questions, as I go back and forth returning things to the store, I have a 15 day limit, so the more I learn , the more I apply.

it's definitely wiser to go for the 900D. this godzilla swallows everything.

The Phanteks Enthoo Primo should be considered as well. If i didnt just get this 540, i would definitely be all over the enthoo primo

I'm coming from the Bulky Cosmos, but the II definitely looks like it changed things up, the more I looked @ the 900D the more I Understood why it achieved the status of TOP tier. Though given that I was initially opened a thread asking about casing and was between the Cosmos II and the 900D but someone came along and recommended teh 540, after a while of looking at it , I kind of fell in love.

Mainly due to this , and the separation, I thought was super cool, and ingenius as it was thinking outside of the standard tower casing.

I saw that but , if I would go tower I'd probably end up with the 900D, unless Corsair ever announces the 1000D.

I mainly just want to confirm that this case will do my rig good. Since I'm starting w/ a CL Corsair h100i and contemplating on WC, I think I may be out of time though to return the h100i in time, but if not I might. If so then I'll use that until I get my next titan, from there I'll probably change it up.

If I end up the h100i and later add in WC blocks for the GPU's and get a setup going, I could just get the CPU parts later for the CPU block and extend it over. I swear to god the amount of decisions going into this are crazy, I remember the old/nub days you just walk in look for the most expensive/effective part and grab it and you're done lol. So much coordination/planning, research and everything else just to go into a great rig, I love it!

In the end I'm sure I'll be more than satisfied. For now though its merely ask the questions, don't pretend to know more, and keep an open mind. I love overkill, but at the sametime I love aesthetics too, and sometimes aesthetics are my BIGGEST weakness....
