So had to join up and submit my pic. Some of you may have seen it floating around the internet but here I am.

I will start going over the 300+ posts in this thread after I post.

Enjoy


Nice!

My XSPC stuff just arrived today. I'm also planning on mounting a Photon res in that areas, but using the smaller 170 and keeping the exhaust fan. And you acrylic guys have GOT to stop posting pictures, it's luring me down a dangerous path.

Yes! Very nice Treble20, gave me an idea for my side panel. Maybe I will paint it silver, like I have done with my grills as well. Not sure though so we'll see! Enjoy reading through it. I did it the other way around, reading through the whole thread(took me about a week) and then registering to post.

Watercooling pre-stage at 20%.



Waterblocks arrived, one is installed, taking a smoke break then the other.




The rest of my water cooling bits from another vendor won't be here until tomorrow. Kinda sad to look in that empty case (running off onboard graphics) but the end result will be worth it.

Yeah, his build has left me with a sudden urge to paint the inside of my case red to match my grills and overall color scheme better.

Hey all.

Looking forward to being in the club soon as I fell in love with this case the second I saw it.

But I have a few quick questions to ask. How is dust in the case? I know it's different for everyone, but generally without there being filters for where the HDDs mount on the bottom or one for the PSU, how is it?

And another one I'm worried on is the airflow. I currently have 3 NF-A14 FLX fans, and I'd like to use them over the stock fans. I run them at max 1200 RPM, and it says the static pressure is around 1.51. Would that be good enough or should I stick with the stock fans?

1) At my college house, where it's all carpet and I dont vacuum a lot, it can get moderately dusty. But I clean it out every other week, though I could probably stretch it to every other month if I wasn't so OCD.

Being at home-home, where it's all hardwood floor, dust is almost nonexistant.

I have the HDD/ SSD completely taped up. And I am using anther acrylic panel for the PSU side. There's like an inch between the side and PSU, so I dont think it's suffocating for air.

2) Those fans are great, much better than stock. I am using 3 NF-F12 PWM on the front and the overall system stays sub 30c.

Thanks! Hopefully I will order this today or tomorrow. It's $116 on NCIX now with a $10 off "new customer" coupon. Since I am also OCD I think I'll just buy a magnetic filter for the PSU side. AnandTech's review on the case seemed pretty good too, which makes me want to buy it even more. The only downside he said there was with the case was with the noise levels with the stock fans, but hopefully these NF-A14's do a much better job at being quiet.

By the way, post more pictures of your computer! My jaw literally dropped when I saw it. thumb.gif

A14's are awesome. Had them on my H110 while it was in this case. Now it's going to another build. Which, will probably be all Noctua fans. The color has kinda grown on me. :/

I have always loved the color. The color is just so unique and I love how quiet they are. None of my friends like the fans, but I think really when you plan your parts out carefully, you get a sweet looking system like trama has. Noctua fans FTW! thumb.gif
