Seems like basically a newer, slightly smaller Switch with Source styling. On that note, have you checked out the Switch 810? Another of NZXT's great water cooling cases.

Yes ive seen the 810, its a fine machine, the things that bugs me most is no ssd mounts on the back i have 2 of them and dont want to just tuck them behind something, id like them solidly mounted somewhere. Which is a big + for the Phantom 630. Thats basically whats keeping me from other cases i think, unless i see something i can giev that up for then its likely ill stick with it but i really want to research every possibility..


I do like the Source case, very nice features.

Some other choices... Phanteks Enthoo Primo/Luxe (bit pricy though), the new H440.

Just fell in love with NZXT's new H440 case. http://www.overclock.net/t/1459092/oc3d-nzxt-h440-case-review

Right, looks absolutely amazing. I suggested it right after the first pics and info of it were released. tongue.gif

No hidden SSD mounts though as that seems to be a major thing for you? Although there are the ones on the bottom.

The hidden part wasn't of any concern it was an SSD mount in general, the NZXT 630 happens to have them hidden away. But since i would have been removing all HDD/SSD bays infront of the case it was very convenient there were 2 ssd mounts on back, whether they are hidden or in plain view i want a case mount vs getting 2 sided Velcro. I dislike the idea of just slapping an ssd between components so its out of the way.

On the H440 the mounts dont appear to be in the way can look great if you were to have nice looking/matching ssd's.

I discovered it looking at the Source cases you suggested also.

On the NZXT website it still says pre-order, but in my cart it doesn't let me use the code for the pre-order free gift says its no longer good... is it still a pre-order or is it out?? I havent seen it anywhere else so i feel like its not really out yet.

I was actually surprised at the Luxe being only $139 Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price .... The Enthoo is down to $209 w/ rebate .... The Pro is cheap at $89 but I donn't really see that price niche being an OCNers target.....certainly not a good WC case the Pro.

I know I'm a bit late to the party here, but there is a method to the madness behind EVGA part numbers that can be helpful when doing this. I haven't verified that this is applicable to every single product, but the pattern fits everything I have found that's recent within a period that anything older is not relevant.

Let's use this as an example:
02G-P4-2762-KR

02G - This indicates that the card comes with 2GB of VRAM
P4 - No idea
2762 - This is the interesting part. The first digit always seems to be either "2" or "3." When the first digit is "2" it seems to indicate that a reference PCB was used, "3" seems to indicate that a non-reference PCB was used. The second two digits indicate the card family, 76 = GTX760. The final digit is the product ID for that family, incremented each time they have a new model.
KR - No idea

This logic matches up nicely with obvious key indicators. Look at the Classified boards, and the boards with Dual BIOS. These are almost always non-reference boards (for all the obvious reasons) and carry the 3XXY nomenclature, whereas the stock and SC cards (sometimes FTW as well) carry the 2XXY nomenclature. I'm not 100% sure this is accurate, but from what I have found it's good enough for me to trust it. It was very helpful when buying my card since I wanted to be absolutely sure that I was getting a reference board for waterblock compatibility (planning ahead - always a good idea).

hmm never heard that before makes some sense but.. 02G-P4-2765-KR Is the code for my card, from what you've stated my card should be/is reference design but on a site linked earlier in the forum i think the first response, states clearly that my card is a non-reference design. What your saying does sound like it makes sense... heres the link: http://www.techpowerup.com/mobile/reviews/EVGA/GTX_760_SC_ACX_Cooler/1.html

It states in the paragraph below the picture of the graphics card itself " In addition to a non-reference design PCB"... from what ive researched it is non reference despite the "2" in the "2765" section of the part number.

I also forgot to mention EK emailed me back saying their GTX760 waterblock will not fit this card.. which leads me to believe further its a non-ref PCB.

Definitely sounds like it's a non-ref card then. So much for my theory ... but it held true for a lot of the ones that I looked up. It would be nice if they would just tell you whether a card was reference or proprietary on the spec sheet.
