I'm using the Corsair Sleeved Kits. http://www.corsair.com/en-us/parts-and-accessories/power-supply-parts-and-accessories
You'll have to re-pin the SATA, Molex, and PCI-E plugs to the V1000 as they're not the same type.
It's more trouble than it's worth at full retail price. But, I got them when they were 50% off so I didn't mind so work. smile.gif

If you want to go this route PM me and I can send you my notes on the pinouts.

The front will mount other 200mm fans other than NZXT. It fit my 200mm Cooler Master just fine so there ya go!

Here is a sneak peak of my current front, no insides yet wink.gif

Ignore the finger prints and smudges, I didn't clean it but y'all need updates. Threw it black and white effect for funzies. Megatons front intake thumb.gif
looking good sgtgates. thumb.gif

Agreed, there's a lot of wasted space on this case. I wish they would offer the same HDD cage mounting versatility as the Corsair 750D. smile.gif


Speaking of modding. Finished my window mod. biggrin.gif
Decided to use epoxy to mount that tempered glass instead of tape.
Worked out great. That glass ain't no nowhere. wink.gif

AWESOME!

Please tell me how you did this. It looks like you didn't repaint the panel.
Every damn window mod I've seen when searching the web either had repaint after the cut or that ugly u-channel rubber thingy.

Just saw this:

Ok. I want to sand my 780TI logo now.

Would it void my EVGA warranty if I did?

That is super sexy! I don't think it would void the warranty. I would call to double check. That computer was sexy though.

Yes, I did paint the bare edges after cutting. First, I tried Whiteout, that was ok but didn't have a smooth finish.
Next, I tried white nail polish. It was a mess to apply. Finally, I used one of these white Sharpies.

Worked great!. Easy to apply and matched the factory paint very well. thumb.gif

Although, with the white case, you can probably leave the edge unpainted silver. It doesn't look that bad. smile.gif

Hey, I'm fairly happy with the H440, sure there are some things they could have done differently.
- A proper fanhub, since the pin three doesn't seem to be connected to the others. So i would ha appreciated a proper four pin hub i.e pwm hub.
- Deeper recess in the back for thicker cables.
- Fan filter is very restrictive adding to the noise, ill be using my akasa metal-mesh filters instead.

On my to do list is
- exchange the three of the remaining fans to SP120 pwm
and
- modding the fan-hub so the third pin will provide the pulse-signal.

Thanks goes to tweaking for providing the pic with the 45mm + 30mm rad, leading to me opting for the H440


Leak testing


Closer look of tube-routing


Finally done.

Pic of rad clearance.




Plenty of room wink.gif

Glad to be of assistance! That's a good looking rig! Let us know what your temps are when it's all done, with and without both covers on. Additionally, it would be good to know if you are push or pull or PnP. Thanks.

Fans are in Push and at the moment the fans are at full blast since you have no control over the hub, soon to be corrected ghetto style. xD
Loop is
Pump -> Rad -> Rad -> GPU -> CPU


Temps are as following, with cover on, stable after ~30mins.
CPU: 50-51*C
GPU: 59*C (VRM 69*C)
NB: 60*C

W/o cover
CPU: 39*C
GPU: 45*C (VRM 53*C)
NB: 47*C
