I know the default is two screws on the top to mount to the bracket to the case and then you use 4 screws to mount that bracket to the PSU. I THINK you can add 2 more screws to the bottom of the bracket to further secure it to the case. I really can't remember nor can I check since I'm at work for the next 7 hours.

Yes, the bracket secures to the PSU with four screws. The bracket is secured in the case by a tab at the bottom and two thumb screws at the top. There are no provisions for adding additional thumb screws, nor do I think they are needed. My PSU is rock solid in this case. It isn't moving anywhere. I do like to remove all the thumb screws and replace them with traditional screws (or torx if I can get them) before going to a LAN party. It's hard to get away with an entire computer but a video card secured by thumb screws can disappear quickly.

Thanks for the picture and info. Seems like it's just so hard for me to find the right case. Every case I've looked at just has a couple small things I don't like.

No problem. Is there a reason you need four screws in there?

If it feels as secure as you say with only two, I'm sure I'd be fine, but it would just make me feel better lol.

I know this case takes pretty much any sized PSU but would I be at a huge disadvantage with my big HX750?

Also, I would want to get the ASUS p8Z77-I deluxe and a h100i and I know plenty of people have fit them both in this case but the h100i looks extremely close to the daughter board in the pictures I've seen; they won't touch at all will they?

It's close. But no, the H100i does not touch the daughterboard of the P8Z77-I.

Hey all, I have been reading about this case for a while now and following this thread. I still am doing a couple upgrades and *wince* cable management, but I just wanted to throw it all in there first and make sure it booted haha.







I will replace the gtx 670 mini with an XFX r9 290... I heard rumors of being able to flash it to an asus r9 290x... Who knows, got it for the looks and cooling haha. Also have to replace the. 450w psu with a stronger one so I can support the massive power draw that is the r9 series...

On a more positive note, even though there is non existent cable management right now, there is plenty of room for the cables to float around and not touch fans (as long as you use the fan grill that corsair provided). So if any of y'all were worried about that, now you know smile.gif

And oh yeah, I got the corsair dominator light bar kit but apparently either one of my lights is faulty or I damaged it during installation of the light bar so now one doesn't turn on. Oh well still looks sweet. The light bar upgrade is like $25 ish dollars in case anyone is interested

Started my build yesterday. Picked up a Z87E-itx, 4670k, and a CoolerMaster TX3. I was curious if the tx3 would clear, and yup got about 3-5mm of clearance to the window.



It's so little!

I think the deal with this case is it's a perfect small form factor IF you follow convention and as such it's not so much a modders case. I think most modding will be cable-management related (custom cable setups, etc). It is possible to do a real waterloop on this...but you're probably more apt to use a single bay pump/reservoir combo (trying to put a small pump and reservoir inside the case in-between the front fan and the mobo would be really tight without expert cable management tricks). It also means dealing with some really tight pipe angles. I'm planning on going this route in a few months using one of the Koolance pump/reservoir combo units after I fit everything together in CAD. I'll bet this would be an interesting case to do w/solid acyrilic tubing.

The good news is the case is nicely designed, you can make a rig look like a pro-build without trying...and it's easy to cart around.
