It is made of wood. 7 ply solid birch void-free 9mm plywood.
I have built more bases for cases over the years than I can count.. not all for my own either. wink.gif.
Being a custom woodworker does have it's advantages. wink.gif

I guess I have to carve out then the hole in the middle. My piece is one heavy board with the wheels below....

Okay guys, I'm considering replacing my corsair 540 with this case to gain more rad space instead of modding my 540 extensively. I currently own a ut60 360 and 240, and definitely want to reuse them. What would be the best set up with these rads to gain more rads? I was thinking the ut60 360 on the bottom and ut60 240 on the front. Is the 240 too thick to also use another 240 in the side? Drive cages aren't an issue ill just get a bay adapter to have hdd space. From what I read in the op I'll be able to fit a ut60 480 in the top. I know a 480 would be enough for anadditional 780 classy, but what is the fun in "good enough?" tongue.gif I'm on mobile otherwise I'd use the amazing search thread function to find a similar question, but I figured the good people of this thread would be more than willing to help me out.

Uhmmmmm might be a tight fit in front x side. I got a ST30 there (both side and front) in push pull and they are almost touching each other. Mind you that they are using a shroud (10mm which screw it in should be like 5-7 mm). So.... 30mm+25+5=60 mm (perhaps 62 mm). A ST30 on the side and a UT60 in front (without push pull) perhaps will fit.. You can check some pictures in my build log since you can see there the two rads installed and how close they are.

I would go with a 420 XT45 on top mate. Several advantages in doing that (check jacktaylor post a few pages back and my reply to it).

Thanks for your reply! I'll definitely look at that but I'm pretty dead set on a 480. I'd prefer to keep all the fans gt ap 15s, because I love their sound signature even at 100%.

My same thinking when I first order my parts...If you notice my current build it is a xt 45 480 on top with ap15 in push/pull....But believe or not I will switch to the xt45 420 to have a nice easy fill port without cutting holes in the top case and to have a little bit more space on the top bays.

You could always sell me your 480 and ap-15s. wink.gif

As soon as I'm not on dreadful mobile ill look at your build log, unless you wouldn't mind linking it to me.
