The case is already enormous, just make it another few mm longer or make the 5 1/4 bay a few mm shorter.

I spoke to Phanteks at length in that regard .... don't forget that when the case was under development, there were no 290/290x's. It does fit just about everything once air cooler was removed .... but I had indicated that it doesn't fit the 780 lightning and some of the other enthusiast configurable cards .... of course with the 290 being considered more of a mainstream card, I'm sure they'd rethink their position.

But yes, I was told a Res Bracket 2 is already "in the works" back in the 1st week of November as they must have had a lot of feedback on that....

Also requested for Enthoo Secundo ? (Enthoo II ) was .....

...enough space on the bottom to fit l140mm wide rads 420s)
...enough space on the top to fit UT60s (For sure .... many times they will fit
...enough depth so ya could fit those cards with 80mm reservoirs and get Push / pull on a UT60 in front

I just cleaned all the filters on my case. Haven't cleaned them since I got the case which was when it was released. The front grill was the worst, not really easy to clean. Just a heads up for you guys.

All looks pretty easy to clean to me, but then again I won't be taking anything apart other than the push-click to remove the filters. I'll just be taking them outside & blasting the dust off of them with an air compressor blow gun ...

LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

I'll also roll the entire cases outside every so often and then and blow them completely out. Great for blowing the dust out of rads too. Have to be a little careful doing that though, like don't blow too hard / too close at the copper fins on a rad or remember to hold fan blades from spinning, as just blowing on a fan with an air compressor can pretty easily over-spin what their bearings can handle. I killed the fan in a PSU like that once.

I guess you could do pretty much the same thing with a datavac, but with the price those things are going for these days you'd be so much better off to buy a small tank air compressor (new ones from campbell hausfeld or central pneumatics can be had for ~$50) which would have a LOT more air pressure than a datavac, and then you could also use small pneumatic tools, like an impact wrench, air ratchet, orbital sander, high-pressure paint gun, air up a car tire, etc.

First shipment of watercooling bits came in. I knew the Monsta 480 was large but I didn't realize quite how large!

G. Changer 420 is big too just, not in comparison to the Monsta..

Alphacool packaged their radiator better than Phoyba did theirs but both pale in comparison to EK's packaging on my 780's nickel block.

Things are getting exciting around here!

The pressure points to remove the front panel are shown on page 19 of the manual.. along with the instructions for the filter.

Same RGB controller I have with 44 key remote but my strip is the waterproof one. Supposed to diffuse the light better but also thicker and stiffer. Will give it a try.

Thanks for the info.
