Rub a dub sub'd, really curious to see this case as I've been eyeing it for some time. My only complaint is EVGA should have at least sleeved that PSU in all black or at least gave the option to buy it that way. Not all of us have the gumption to take a psu apart for sleeving.. Modular is one thing, that is another.

I love the case and I am looking forward to seeing if you can get that rad to fit in there.
I think you may run into an issue though, there is a bracket at the top of the HDD cage that connects to the case. Without removing the HDD cage you only have about 260mm of clearance and the Corsair is 275mm.

I hope you can make it work because I have the exact same case and would love to throw some water cooling in my case but currently I need the hard drives and dvd drive for the system setup I have.

Subbed to see how this goes smile.gif

EVGA also needs to sell those slim USB 3.0 motherboard cables separately, ASAP!

Subbed also for this cool build.
