He is one of the lucky few to already have one as he's a reviewer
The rest of us are desperately waiting!
I swear this is the longest thing I've had to wait for, this is much worse than getting my nexus 4 last year before Xmas (anyone who pre-ordred in the 1st batch in the UK will know exactly what I mean)

My hope is that after this disaster with the primochill wetbench, I can somehow get store credit from performance pcs and possibly get a 480mm rad. Do the 80mm thick rads fit?

All depends on the height of your motherboard heatsinks
If I can direct you to Jesse's massively helpful FAQ, you'll get your answer there

A 140mm series up to a 280 or a 120mm series up to a 360 80mm thick rad will fit on the bottom - in push-pull if you want - without losing anything. You can fit a 480 80mm thick rad on the bottom - in push-pull if you want - at the expense of the lower HDD cage, or if you don't mind losing both HDD cages you can fit up to a 240/280 80mm thick rad in the front.

Also, it might be possible to fit an 80mm thick 120mm series rad up top too, up to a 480, depending on the height of your mobo heatsinks & ram. There is 70mm clearance from the top of the mobo to the top of the case, and 120mm series rads are ~54mm offset, so it might be possible to have an 80mm thick rad up top (~10mm of the rad by itself will overhang your mobo), and maybe even with a push fan, as long as the mobo and whatever is on it behind the overhanging rad/fan is less than ~50mm or so tall. The same overhanging/offset issue comes into play if you want to have a push fan on a 60mm thick 120mm-series rad up top.

Keep in mind that 480 rads up top thicker than 55mm will also impede into the 5.25 bays at the front, so a 60mm or 80mm thick monsta 480 up top will cost you the top bay, and a monsta with a push fan will cost you the top two.

Thanks for the info. I don't think there's a better case out there than this... Especially nothing more future proof. I don't have a nice reservoir right now, but I might get one later. So many mounting points for reservoirs. Also with the pump, I have a D5 and either a tank res or bay res. Plenty of options with this case.

Woah, they are already up to S4? Shows how much I pay attention to cellphones... I'm still using the OG Galaxy Nexus... Got it for 50$ new, & payed a local company 100$ to water-proof it.

No just the PWM fans.

I'm not MOD ZOO, I'm a reviewer. But yes the zoo is more like a home to me.

Lol, ppl who know me in person might agree with that, given how I behave lol.

OT: Saw the block that has been made for the Dark over at the EVGA forums. Looks really good. But I would love to see a bitspower style blocks that covers the VRMs, SB and the CPU.

I canceled my newegg preorder, considering preordering it from Phanteks but shipping is still high. Is there any information on a date they would ship out?
