What size fans are those? I've been thinking about doing that myself.

Just changed my power and reset switch to Vandal...


Both are latching switch though, can't find momentary one. But they have 'like' a two positions, if you push half it likes a momentary and if you push more it latches.

80mm. They fit pretty much perfectly. The space right above the SSD cage is the perfect amount of room. Although, honestly, the main reason they are there and not something with blue LEDs is I had bought them prior to this case and it seemed a shame not to use them tongue.gif

Finally finished! It's not the prettiest, but for my first build ever, I am really happy with it.


The workspace.

Cut a piece of acrylic to mount the res on.

Didn't want to use a drill so I used the big engraver bit.

New mobo, the Asus ROG Maximus VII Hero

Pop rivets to put the new window in.

Leak testing.

My wire management needs work, but later.

Full frontal










So all in all I really like it. Covering the whole thing with carbon fiber wrap to spilling my fluid all over the carpet, it was a good time.

Also, can I get a a club invite?

I have the Air 540 on order, can't wait til it arrives! The fan setup I have in mind so far are:

- 3x AP15 as front intake
- Swiftech H220-X on top as intake with it's included fans or 2x AP15
- Exhaust... leave as stock?

I'm not sure if I should leave the exhaust fan there or upgrade it. Can anyone recommend a good 140 exhaust fan upgrade?

This maybe? I have the blue LED version 140s in my case. Pretty nice. Rated at less DB than the scythe. Moves a nice amount of air at max speed and includes a voltage drop connection to make it quieter if need be.

I've read a lot of good things about those fans and plan on getting 3 120s and 2 140s as intake whenever i decide to get my next pc
