Thanks, I can see that I'm going to have to do a lot of horse trading to get rid of some of the rads out of the cupboard smile.gif

I figured you'd come to that conclusion sooner or later..... let me know if ya want me to come in and take it out to the trash for ya smile.gif ..... was in ya neighborhood friday smile.gif

Funny you should say that, I've had the case since late November and never even used it. Took it out of the box a few times to do measurements but never even installed a fan into it. I'm probably gonna list on craigslist for pickup. Or try to sell it to someone on OCN who lives in the 5 boroughs. Obviously for an open box price wink.gif

I do reside in queens would be tempted, but been waiting for the color version of this case.

Well here's The Black Pearl. It was tough having the case sit for three weeks with nothing in it. Last week I was running it on air but it's finally done......for now. Unfortunately the night shot turned out a little blurry.

Looks really great, love the way you did your tubing. Full nickel Supremacy is beautiful. I was just wondering why the rear fan is blowing inside? To keep positive pressure?

Thanks! Yes I do have the rear fan as intake for positive pressure since the 140's move more air and for silly reasons like I like the way the fan looks mounted as intake since it looks more uniform with the 3 intake fans on the bottom rad. I might try it as exhaust though since I do have 6 intake and 3 exhaust currently which is probably a bit much. But four of them are low RPM 120mm fans and the other 5 are the stock case fans which move a ton of air so I'm kind of afraid of the pressure becoming more neutral without the rear fan intaking, which probably isn't a bad thing.

Why not do all of the fans as intakes and just the rear fan as a single exhaust. That way you've got plenty of positive pressure going on in there. The airflow isn't bad with this case, but I do think it can use all of the intakes it can get, except the rear panel kind of needs to be an exhaust since that's where all of the passive exhaust is going to happen naturally since it's the portion that's so well vented. As it is now, you've got air coming in from that fan, but then other air is still probably exhausting out of the other vents on that back panel and the overall flow might be kind of weird. With all intakes, it's going to bring tons of fresh air in and it will all flood and escape out the back. Plenty of fresh air that's coming in only through filtered intakes and then all of the air is exhausted out of the one panel that's not filtered. That and the positive pressure in general will keep dust to a minimum and you'll just have a "natural" flow of air going on.

It looks great, though! I do kind of have mixed feeling about the tubing because it looks great, but at the same time I find of feel like the beauty of acrylic tubing is to have every tubing run either horizontal or vertical (so everything is routed with 90 degree bends to get wherever you need to go from point A to point B. It does look awesome, though and that's always something you could do later if you wanted to get more fittings and/or do some bending if you ever actually decided you wanted to. It's definitely tedious to do it that way, but I just love that look. Congrats on the new build!

I had the same experience, except I got rid of mine to go smaller smile.gif I still love the EP and miss it, but I'm so happy with the build and beautiful, simple Caselabs design. I have a white Mercury S5 now and love it. If you haven't had a Caselabs case yet, you will definitely love it. Caselabs is just the ultimate for me, but a big STH10 (or any Caselabs) is definitely an investment, but well worth it for the build quality and complete customizability with all of those options.

Thanks for the kind words. The rear fan is mounted as intake primarily for looks. The temps are really good so I'm likely going to leave it as intake but I do know what you're saying. I did want to keep all the tubing going horizontal and vertical but to do that in the motherboard area would be very difficult because I used fittings for all the bends since I prefer the aesthetics.
