Can't wait to see what you have in store.
I picked up one of these cases and it worked perfectly for the build I did but it really needs some work.

Are you going to leave it air cooled or are you looking at water cooling with all the mods you are planning?

I was going to watercooling the 780 and CPU but this case is tiny and a 240mm rad won't cool both of these. So ima leave it air cooled frown.gif

Hey, i see you had to fold out the lip on the left side to fit your card. I'm planning to get the same card with my Hadron. Did you notice any warping of the case itself as you bent that piece or was it strong enough to stand it? Thank you

No warping as of yet. I did cut that lip I folded off this morning.
Another thing you need to do if you put this card in this case is to get 2 90degree 8 pin connectors other wise the side window wont close. (my next mod )

Thanks for the heads up. What did you use to cut the lip?

Would custom sleeving the PCI connectors help with bending those wires out of the way? I don't have the case in hand yet so i can't visualize it
