Yeah I'm debating on canceling. I can order a 350D or Caselabs here next week.

Are you in that big of a hurry to build that you can't wait a month? And a 350D certainly isn't comparable to this case, being mATX and all. As far as CaseLabs goes, "there goes the bank," is all I have to say.

Sorry I meant 900D. I have a MATX board so it doesn't really matter. I will never got quad GPU so a full size ATX served no purpose for me.

Here what I would recommend. Put a 480 60mm thick up top in push pull, a 360 in the bottom. When you install your 360 in the bottom leave the 120mm spot closer to the back of the case open. You can use that space to install a pump and a reservoir on the back of the case.
I'm going to have a measure up now and see what I can get away with!

Yeah I know in hindsight I probably should have gone with 120mm rads, but I've already bought my 280 monsta for the bottom, and I kinda wanted to use phanteks' 140 fans, seeing they bundle 5 already, so that's 5 less to buy, and I really want to use the same fans throughout the case

Overall though your right I was being impatient. Watched to HT Legion video and in renewed. I've been waiting for months and I'm just ready.

Yeah I got the same email.

Seems they probably jumped the gun a bit on taking pre-orders for the case.

That's not the news I was wanting to hear, but it's sure not going to kill me to wait a little longer since it was going to take me a couple months to come up with everything going into it anyway, however I have been holding off ordering much of anything yet until I actually get the case because I've learned from past build experiences that having all the earlier on ordered parts sitting around well past the typical 30-day RMA period before the last parts arrive before I have even the first chance to put them all to use and make sure they weren't DOA probably isn't really the best thing to do. Unless something I'm looking at buying anyway goes on sale for cheaper I've found it's usually just better to hold off and get everything together about the same time.

That, plus I'm pretty well set on what all I'm going to be getting, but do still want to actually get my hands on this case first to make certain for myself what all is going to fit where and what I think it will look like before I commit to it. There's only so much all the written specs, pictures and advice from Jesse and others are able to do for me to answer all my final questions/concerns.

I think we are in for some surprises in the final product. These delays problems meant they are using reviews out there to improve the case. For example the reservoir/vga length piece would most likely be re-done properly in the shipping units... My guess only, not an inside information. Since my system is up and running I don't mind waiting.

I m guessing demand and minor tweaks. The case really doesn't have much in the way of flaws, but I can appreciate them wanting it to be near perfect. I m just going to use the time to actually map out what other parts I want to order and begin stock piling. I was going to wait on paracord and rewiring, but now it seems like a good use of time.

I m still unclear, but can we run a 240 rad up front and keep the hard drive cages?


One of the nifty things I saw in the HTL video that I never noticed before was that each SSD bracket holds 2 SSDs. I m sure they mentioned it before but this just seemed neat and efficient. I like how all the brackets look good and function nicely without looking like cheap pieces of crap. The modular design of those cases and the pump mounting is pretty rad.

I must admit I m doing the case a disservice by using an Apogee Drive II and Asus x79 Gene board, but Ill just fill it with radiators, fans, and hard drives. Those new Seagate 5TB drives are looking nice.
