Does anyone have the White version of the case? i have been told by some that the window is only slightly tinted but all the pictures i have seen it looks VERY tinted and would like to get peoples opinion that actually have the white model as to how tinted the window actually is.

All windows are tinted the same, it's just less noticeable on the white case because it's white instead of black.

Finally ordered my 4770k CPU, paid more than I wanted 335 but will get it on tues from Amazon.com and I got to use my bitcoins though gyft.com

I'll post pics on tues, and some temp testing for my gpu's and the new fans compared to stock Air 540 fans.

Greetings Programs.

Long have I lurked around these forums, searching for a case to call my own. The sleek and small Phenom M? The ruggedly eccentric HAF XB? Close, but no cigar. I might be showing my age here, but there's something delightfully "Wargames" about the 540.

So I'm speccing up a 540-based build to replace a geriatric Dell that p*ssed itself and died on me a short time ago. It'll be my first ever build, but I have no access to workshop tools et al. I'm a character animator and motionographer so while it needs to have some punch to it - I also want it to look good sat on the end of my desk.

I've seen some fantastic and inspiring 540 builds here - ranging from that looks slick! all the way up to oh my god this can't be happening!! watercooled insanity. You all seem to help and encourage each other and that's nowt but a good thing.

Just thought I'd pop my head around the door and say hello now that I've joined the forum.

"hello!"

End of line.

Awesome finally sold my 900D got $480nz dollars considering I paid $570 new... Ordered my 450 air and luckily enough it was on sale for $210 reduced from $260:-) this case will suit me a whole lot better since my room is small and I don't water cool my vidcards and only have a H110 on the 4930k cpu, the 900d was wasted on me, thinking about modding the side window with a 140mm fan to help cool my 2x Asus gtx780s they are the non reference versions with the twin fans that don't expel the hot air, or would a 120mm fan be better?

Hello also!

Thank you for the warm welcome. I'll hopefully be posting some specs up in the near future, no doubt with plenty of questions. I've been soaking up a lot of Linus's tech guides and so on for building...and looking over other folks system builds who have similar (ish) needs as mine.

I rarely play games on my PC or laptop, certainly nothing that would strain a system more powerful than a modern egg-timer. I use 3D animation, 2D animation, digital sculpting and post production software constantly so a reliable/stable system is more important to me than a super-overclocked one. A Xeon-based rig is simply out of my price range, and I've been through the grinder regarding Quadro/Geforce cards - I use a K5000 at work and I really cannot justify the outlay for it. From all I've read, I understand that SLI is of little use for most aspects of the software I'll be using so a single-card solution is what I'm aiming for. For the non-viewport 3D stuff (AE, rendering etc.) big memory is a must (more so than super fast memory) and as many cores/threads as I can afford (most likely 6-core IB-E).

So there's a little overview regarding the rig's intended purpose/aspirations. I appreciate this is a case-specific thread so I won't be doing any more topic hijacking. This will be a Spring project and I can't wait to get started!

Thanks again for the welcome!
