managed to get most of the loop fitted and even had time to carbon vinyl the aluminum pannels (no more fingerprints)

Will keep you posted, but not having fun using a tablet to update with. Lol

I'm a new Luxe owner and I gotta say it was a great purchase.

Good cooling configurations for air or water, nice solid frame even with parts removed, looks good (personal preference obviously), very easy to work in and I gotta give kudos to Phanteks for their customer service as well. One of my included fans had a problem and all it took was sending them a copy of my invoice and within the hour I had an email with a tracking number for my replacement fan.

I couldn't be happier with my case.

I was using a HAF 912 so this is a drastic improvement in terms of room/cable management/overall quality lol

Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo with 1x Gelid Wing UV Blue 120mm exhausting out the top
2x Gelid Wing UV Blue 120mm intake in the front
1x Phanteks PH-F200SP exhausting out the top
1x Gelid Wing UV Blue 120mm exhausting out the rear

Not quite sure what my cpu core idle temps are (Thanks AMD! First world problems man..) but my socket is idling at 32c, my GPU idles at 22c and my SSDs are 23c and 24c respectively.

For me on the Luxe I wish they had done away with the optical drive cage and allowed support for 2 3 fan radiators preferably 420 mm radiators tongue.gif and made it so HDD's could be mounted on the back of the case. others than that I love it also wish it was just slightly taller so I could do p/p on a 45 mm thick radiator up top, but I think thats more of a issue with my mobo heatsinks.

yeah....gotta love the amd cpu algorithm lies until 40c...it's really inaccurate below that

Although it may be a bit like cursing in church, I do think the Fractal Design Define R5 would fit your needs nicely if that is what you would be after. There are other alternatives than Phanteks on the market, and although Phanteks makes great cases, they can still stand to get some proper competition. For me, the Define R5 looks to be exactly that. I just love when manufacturers strive to outdo eachother, so hopefully the next iteration of Luxe/pro cases will learn from the compedtition and we will see more of the goodness on the Mk II edition smile.gif
