Yeah, that makes sense. I don't have any water cooling at all and don't need it so it's an air cooled build.

My short-pcb GTX 760 cards will fit, so I've no plans/need to modify the res bracket myself, but I had thought about it if I did have longer cards & wanted to use that bracket and was wondering if it wouldn't be possible, instead of cutting/modifying the left side of the bracket, if the whole bracket couldn't just be shifted to the right a little towards the front - requiring new mounting locations behind the bracket &/or new mounting holes in the bracket itself - and then take a dremel to, if necessary, anything on the right side of the bracket - that part you really don't see - that might then be hitting the HDD or 5.25" bays or whatever on that right side.

Assuming the HDD bays are shifted to the most forward position, that might not be much of anything that needs cut/modified from the bracket or whatever on the 5.25" bays that the bracket might be hitting if you shifted it right a little bit.

Know what I'm saying?

Just seems like if it was just 5, 10, 15, ... mm's you needed that way might be better as it wouldn't entail modifying the curved recessed edge on the left that can be seen more easily, plus it looks like any cutting on that left side would necessarily affect the strength/support of the bracket.

I dunno. I'd have to really get my hands on the case myself to see what all could be done best. I can't wait.

I know what you are saying, but it would get pretty messy. You have quite a bit in terms of the HDD cage mounts, ODD mounts and MB tray over there to contend with. It would be a much more difficult undertaking than modding the bracket and cover. You also need to keep in mind how easy the cover is to work with and that it is capable of hiding a multitude of sins. wink.gif

FWIW, looks like Vortez read the comment I had posted on their review (mirrored some of the issues I brought up here about it) and have made corrections to their review (and removed my comment while they were at it).

Interesting idea.
* Moving bracket forwardt would mean it wouldn't cover the cabling by the same 5,10, 15, ..mm,
* The threaded mounting holes on front side would not be usable and the back mounting holes would need to have new holes drilled in case.
* Might need to modify 5.25" bay cage to use bracket for reservoir.
We need our cases to really figure this all out. thumb.gif

Sounds par for Vortex. rolleyes.gif

They do all their cooler reviews with a system in a case.. but they do not monitor the temperature of air going into the cooler.. but instead use the room temperature. rolleyes.gif The CLC coolers exhaust all their heated air with the case separating the cool intake from heated exhaust. But the air cooler tests do not do this.. and heated cooler exhaust air mixes with cooler intake air heating it up by several degrees and that makes CPU that much hotter too. How much hotter?? We don't know... no temperature is monitored in front of cooler intakes... just somewhere else in the room!. mad.gif

Since the Primo won't be released until 10/18 what are the criteria for joining the club? I've not yet pre-ordered, but after following this case since June I will be a happy owner at the earliest.smile.gif
