Would like to join this club. I picked up this case when I became interested in overclocking and wanted to give my old system some breathing room.

Meet my old system.


This is part of the reason I'm looking to upgrade the internals (e6750, gts 250, kingston ddr2 800 value ram, ribbon cables, somehow still able to get bf4 running and kinda playable [don't ask about settings]). Included in this upgrade would be the switch to custom water cooling with ONE goal. To put a large tube reservoir in the mobo side of the case be it where everyone wants their 360 rad, in front of the gpu(s) on the back wall, or wherever that puts the res on display.

This would be my preferred res http://www.xs-pc.com/reservoirs/photon-270-tube-reservoir, but am open to more workable options. From what I've seen, though, I think it will be hard to beat it for aesthetics.

Excited to be working with this case whether I water cool or not and anxiously await the well earned retirement of this 6+ year old build. (it may not even retire, have some friends that this would still be an upgrade for and I still have its original case rolleyes.gif )

Wow. My dream build, pretty much. I had to swap the Tis for 780 Classifieds and drop the 4770k down to a 4670k though. Looks epic. What resolution do you play at?

What sort of temps are you getting? Trying to pick a 120mm fan for the front intakes, heard great things about the Noctua range... But I don't knew if I can live with the brown!

Has anyone had any experience with these Phobya (Noiseblocker) fans? http://www.aquatuning.co.uk/product_info.php/info/p15211_Phobya-NB-eLoop-1600rpm---Bionic-Fan---120x120x25mm--.html

I'm guessing they are just a re-branded standard NB-Eloop so check out the NB-Eloop B12-2 B12-3 reviews as the RPM of the Phobya falls right inbetween those models smile.gif I've got 7 eloop b12-3's arriving today, looking forward to getting to see them up close - Adam

I have one of these fans (well, NB Eloop B12-2). They have a great build quality, good bundle. And they are really silent. I'm using them as case fans so in terms of airflow, I will not be able to help you much.

Anyone tried a Tundra TD02 cooler in here? Specifically with the Z87 Maximus Hero board? Looking to see if I can fit one in push/pull.

Wicked. Let us know how your temps go, too! By the way, are you running your Classys on stock clocks?

Alright so here you go guys, i drove down to frozencpu.com in east rochester, ny. I live around an hour away so i decided to drive down for some custom work.

I get there, walk in and i see a nicely painted orange and black corsair carbide air 540 case with 2 rads in it, after that someone helped me and I told them who i was looking for and they immediately found him and then they told me I can walk past the employee only sign and come in into the back where i chit chatted with the guy who was going to do the work, and how he was going to do it. I was even allowed to sit there and watch!. He told me that the side window make break during this because corsair used really thick ones and that most manufacturers dont make them this thick, but rest assured he said if it broke that he would replace it!

After that we had a nice chat and I watched him work, and then i told him I also wanted to have a fan and a wire grill put on which he put on for me. (I FORGOT TO BUY A 140MM FAN FILTER -_-) and because the wire grill was big he had to get me some long screws which he didnt charge for.

The fan i picked was somewhat on the spot, i had 30minutes to research the best 140mm fan so i picked a akasa viper.

Heres the work! all for the low low price of 46$ and this included the fan and grill.





Results!

It ended up dropping the top cards temps by 5c and bottom by 3c as exhaust, as an intake it dropped the top card by 9c and rose the bottom by 3c, which is perfectly fine and helps alot!

Exhaust max temps at 1280mhz each card and 1.212V 77c top, 60c bottom.

Intake max temps at same specs as top 71c top 64c bottom.

temperatures before 80-82c top 70c bottom.

this is with the antec spot cool turned off which is the small fan you see in there, i need to take it out lol


also when i walked in this was the case i saw\
