I just bought this case planing on a DUAL LOOP setup a Alphacool NexXxoS ST30 Full Copper 240mm with 120x20mm fans for GPU and a EK-CoolStream Radiator XTC 140mm for CPU intake fan.. Also going to have the case powder coated White..
Just ordered all my parts in the past couple of days going to use a Bitspower full cpu block in Nickel/Clear and the memory as well.

Very nice, Lucky. I was planning on doing something along those same lines and making my self a nice little steam machine.

I look forward to following your build log biggrin.gif

I wanted to make mine similar to this 250D done by the guys at corsair, but better execution.

Regarding the H105 I am not sure, but from what I read in general it is a damn tight squeeze and not really recommended...

Hope that helps.
Thanks for the comment, can't wait to see your setup soon smile.gif

The loudest component in this system has to be my GPU. Now if I could water cool that at some point, I'll have a totally quiet system. It'll be interesting to see customer water cooling done in this case once more and more people get this.

I've noticed my local Microcenter keeps ordering 3 at a time and within a few days they are gone. This is where I picked mine up.

The H105 will be a really right squeeze and probably not recommended as the 100 is already tight, unless you mount fans on the exterior of the case.
Guessed i'm safe with H100i, thanks on the fan recommendation biggrin.gif


Meanwhile, I had ordered these a while ago from Amazon to complete the final setup .biggrin.gif

Nobody has tried to mod and make a windowed side panel?
I have heard that corsair it's making an official one....

Not sure what the point would be unless you had a custom water cooled video card. Would just starve your GPU of air.

I'm doing a custom loop practically identical to the one on the corsair blog...
So I'm so interested at this point.
Hope somebody is doing a mod of this case...

Would be nice to show off that pretty water block. Window kits are cake. They sell them all over the place. Check out performance-pcs.com or frozencpu.com.

I agree. I'd hope that if someone did go that route that they custom cool the GPU or that GPU will overheat. My GPU heats up that side of the case very well.
