Very nice, good sir!

Those stickers above the I/O port were the second thing I removed after unsheathing my Acrylic panel tongue.gif. Very eager to see your build, so keep us updated!

Thanks! I'll definitely post updates of the build here. I also have a build log. I'm taking some time now to strip everything I don't need out of the case. Looking A LOT more open now.

Congrats. New cases are great to open up and look at.

If you are planning a long build it may have been a good idea to keep that plastic over the windows for scratch protection, but if you have room to set it safely aside, no problem. tongue.gif

All of the little push in latches and plastic parts are intact as well? Some good luck there.

Yeah the hours are flying by messing with this thing! Wish my radiators were here already so I could put them in! I have heard about the side windows scratching easily and deep down I knew that I should have kept the plastic on, but I couldn't help myself. Peeling that stuff off is the best feeling! thumb.gif I wrapped it up in a towel and set it off to the side so it should be fine.

The case is looking really good. Everything is intact and no broken pieces anywhere. Paint looks really even too. Looks like I got a good one!

So it looks like I've ran into a problem already. I measured the length between the two holes on my res/pump top bracket and it's around 55mm. The case only has support for 35.75mm and 71.50mm res mount spacing.



If I take that bracket off, it will fit perfectly on the pump mount that comes with the case... but because it's a pump/res combo it's too tall to fit back there near the PSU. There is another location you can put the pump mount, but I will have a 360mm radiator there. I've measured and the pump\res combo stands 7.5 inches tall. I've decided to give up my CD drive and I've come up with an idea of how to mount the pump bracket in the 5.25 bay area.

With the help of some screws, washers, and nuts it fits perfectly and there is 10" of free space above it.




I'm going to be using a 420mm radiator up top so here is the view down inside. I'll be able to fill up the res very easily from the top of the case just by popping off the top dust filter since there is a clear view inside.



I thought about how the loop will differ with this setup and it will actually be a lot neater now.

This is fun!!

@RavageTheEarth
May I suggest not removing the serial number, or if you do to put it back on somewhere else. I have not had to do any Phanteks case warranty claims, but other companies have asked for the serial number. It is sometimes needed for them to know exactly what replacement parts they need to send based on model production changes. .

So, I don't know many hear with the Pro M, and especially not many with the Pro M Acrylic, but Phanteks finally got back to me about the Tempered Glass panel:

Thanks,
Chris

Yes the glass panel will use the same mounting system. We will offer upgrade panels at a later date.

I've also followed up to see if they can at least give me an ETA...hopefully Q3-to-early-Q4 so I can throw it on my list for Santa biggrin.gif.

For my case, I actually ensured my S/N was somewhere else (I want to say mine is on the actual box as well) before removing it. I will double check when I am home.

He also has a pretty good picture of his serial number now, assuming it doesn't get deleted.

And it can be found when needed. Proverbial needle in a haystack. Every try to find something as specific as a serial number in a picture that was posted a couple years ago? biggrin.gif
You could spend weeks searching and not find it.

For me if removed I would carefully peal it off and put it on the bottom or neatly in corner of cable management area.
