I also using XTX 360 on the front and port in the bottom but you need to grind the HDD hot swap in the bottom a bit to make clearance with the fittings. Only used fans in the front/outside the case. It also depends how long with you graphic card.

I don't remember where I saw it, but somewhere, someone managed to take all the individual little plugs that your case uses for the LED lights/power/reset switch and wire them into a single USB thing that plugs into the bottom of most mobos. Does that make sense? I'm really trying to slim down my wiring on the 540 and if I could put all those into ONE wire that I could customize the length, it would help me out.

5 core alarm cable would do, one earth, two LED +ves and the two PSU & RESET switch feeds.....

dunx

P.S. Not needed to do it myself..... best of luck !

I have a 2 led strings in mine with 4 leds each for my XSPC waterblocks. They plug into extra fan headers, which is really handy. Just need to put the right resistor in line an make sure you get the +/- right to each led, then you only need 2 wires.

Been following this thread for a long time and have decided that my next build will be with this case. I been thinking of the fan configuration that i want to use whenever i do get around to having it built and wanted to get y'alls opinion.

3 aerocool ds 120s as intake in the front
2 aerocool ds 140s as intake on top
the cpu cooler will be the H140-x as exhaust at the rear

Do you think that will be pretty good?

What do you have at the top case in the back? where the cables connect?
Thanks

Hello guys. Finally i m a owner of this fantastic case ... I have a problem, when I connected the USB 3.0 I saw that the connector has holes small and not very clean .. I have not forced too much for fear of damaging the motherboard. Even your are so?..

Doesn't it technically have a bigger foot print since it's alot wider and takes up double the sapce most other cases would on your desk/floor? tongue.gif

I would like to join the club, please biggrin.gif

I've got three shots of it on, a shot of each side, and then the small mover dolly with a black microfiber towel on it(flash killed the color). I rotated the case to sit on the side of the PSU. I added several rubber 'feet' on the bottom to gain about an inch on how it rested on the covered dolly. When my third Aerocool 140mm fan gets here, I will be moving that to my exhaust. The current fan there, a Lepa 120mm, will be put directly underneath the PSU to draw in cool air to it. Probably overkill, but will keep the PSU cooler.
