I stumbled upon this threat last week when searching for a new case (added a second EVGA GTX 670 FTW SIG 2 and not comfortable with the temps and fan noise in my cramped ANTEC Three Hundred Two). I originally found the 900D and while I love the looks of the case I just couldn't justify the price, luckily I found the 750D and it was love at first sight
My 750D arrived on Tuesday of this week but due to my crazy work hours I didn't get a chance until last night to take it out of the box and start swapping over my current components. Everything went smoothly, I love how much more room this case has vs my old one, makes it so much easier to work in there! I had read a few negative things about the front panel (that covers the fans) and the hd caddies but I didn't have issues with either.

I ordered the backplate for my water block, I see that they sell a "mount kit" for my waterblock. I couldn't find anything stating I needed to purchase this separately from my wb, can anyone confirm if my wb will come with the hardware needed to install?
The description of included items is "
1x HEATKILLER� CPU Rev3.0 1155/1156 LC
1x Installation material/manual"
I still need to order the waterblocks for the GPU's, i'm going with HEATKILLER Ni-Bl Hole Edition and a fan controller (I was looking at a Lamptron FC5V3) Should probably wait a week or so, wife is estatic over the $ I've spent in the last few days
Two hundred feet of 450 paracord (100ft blk, 100ft blu) arrived last night so my weekend project will be to sleeve my PSU and clean up all the wiring so its easier to install all my w/c components.
Think thats all, I'll get some pictures up before/after sleeving
