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.

I agree with you completely! Though, I know that people will attempt to mod it with a full loop like you state you are. I personally love that corsair made the case bigger so I can get my hands in there to do cable management and such without cutting or cramping my fingers haha! Although, I do wish sfx power supplies would become more of a standard in smaller cases so we can continue to shrink the form factor like silverstone ones or the evga hadron air even.

I think the SFF "stuff" (PSU, Case, Mobo, GPU, etc) are giving PC gamers a real shot of joining consoles in the living room (cof course, the "nex-gen" consoles are basically PC's in the living room). Trying to move a 100lb MountainMods case is silly...why not build a SFM machine, place it near the TV and use it for streaming games, checking email, etc. This case is an intermediate step in that direction.

And I agree...much thinner/smaller PSU's are very possible and I suspect we'll start to see a lot of them soon.

nks

Thought I'd chime in, but I have a feeling we will see more cases like the RVZ01 as time goes. I hope that Corsair throws their hat in the mix with even smaller cases than the 250D and have some offerings similar to the Raven.

Silverstone already makes a nice SFX PSU that can do quite a bit at 450W with a 600W on the way.

Would you guys recommend the h100i for this case or is the extra space it takes up with a 280mm radiator not worth it? Would something like h80i be better?
post #137 of 3051
H100i works perfectly...but get better PWM fans (quiet ones).

does the 780ti classified fit or kingpin?

I don't think so, but if it does, it will be a serious squeeze. The 780 ti DirectCUII is already hitting the limit, at 14.7cm.

I have a feeling it would fit but the power connectors wouldn't be able to
