Thanks for having this post and all the pictures posted by you guys. Because of all these pictures and hints scattered through here I have finally decided to join the club and go with the following build:

-IN WIN 901
-Intel Core i7-6700
-Alpenföhn "Atlas", CPU-Kühler
-GIGABYTE GA-H170N
-G.Skill DIMM 16GB DDR4-2133
-be quiet! Straight Power 10 500W CM
-nVidia GTX 1080 once it's released
-ADATA SP900 256 GB SSD
-be quiet! Silent Wings 2 PWM 120 mm for the front intake

After reading some reviews and finding out that the thermal performance of this case is not TOO bad I decided to do some research. I was on the brink to go with an AIO watercooling loop for this system, which I wouldn't have liked since I'm a fan of keeping it simple and staying with air-cooling and having the looks of an air-cooler on the motherboard. The Atlas is in my eyes the perfect match for this system and it claims to have a 200W TDP.

I decided to go with the non-k version of the i7 since right now I do have a k version, but I never felt the need to overclock it. The motherboard offers USB type C(tho it's not 3.1, only works at 3.0 speeds), an M.2 slot at the backside, 8-channel audio and even dual ethernet jacks. Pretty much a no-brainer for the H170 chipset at this formfactor.

I'll post pictures once it's done, but that might take a few weeks since I'm still waiting for the 1080.

It's nearly finished guys! It's running but needs some better cable management. I suck at photography but here's some almost final photos

If you call that bad cable management you shouldn't see mine wink.gif

Is there a part list available? Mostly for watercooling, becuase I've been looking for a GPU block forever and can't find one that would fit like yours does. And pump and all that too, it must have been a pain finding all the right parts.

I had to use an EK FC980 original CSQ block for the gpu because the normal blocks extend to far to fit the glass door on.

Due to lack of space I used a pump/waterblock combo. The swiftech apogee drive II with a koolance pmp400 pump and a Bitspower heatsink. Because the pump was swapped out I had to add an aquacomputer power adjust 3 to power it properly.

All fittings and radiators are Bitspower.

It might not fit, the maximum cooler height is 127mm.

Hey guys sorry if this has been asked already, but does anyone know if the Gigabyte R9 Fury will fit in this case? I'm finding several different size specs on the card, and don't know which source to trust.
post #379 of 512
Well if the Alphenfon Atlas will not fit i have also thought in Noctua NH-U9S. But can someone tell the best air cooler for this case?? I am in a dead point about CPU cooling, i will not OC the CPU but I still want the lowest temps possible.

WackyDothraki the official gigabyte page claims 278mm so it will fit, this case have a maximun of 300mm for the GPU.
post #380 of 512
Thanks for confirming the GPU should fit. I don't know what the best air cooler would be. But I currently use the Cryorig M9i, and it keeps my i7 6700k at around 32C idle. Under full load the highest temp I've seen is 72C. I don't overclock though so this was all stock speeds.
