NZXT has been doing some very impressive stuff lately. This case is a great choice when considering what they're asking for it. This is almost a must for any modder.

Here are the photos!

Shot with my iPhone 5 on a cloudy day. Not the greatest photos, but you get the gist of them.

Love the clean look with no loose wires!

Sexy! One day my h440 will look that nice, but it will take a couple sp120 quiet editions to achieve that.

Front: 2x SP120 QE
Top: 1x AF140
Back: 1x AF120

Front fans run at about 735RPM, and the other two case fans at about 630RPM.

Temperature stays at a cool idle 28-30 with Prime95 Small FFT of 65. Gaming usage only sees the CPU hit up to a max of 45-50.

The noisiest thing is the humming from the H100i pump. Sent in a RMA and maybe that will fix it up so it's a dead silent machine.

Are you using the sleeved extensions that you buy off the shelf? Like the Silverstone 24pin and 8 pin presleeved extensions?

Im asking because I want to pick up a pair eventually.

Yep, the motherboard 24pin and GPU 8/6pins are Silverstone. The EPS 8pin is Bitfenix Alchemy.

They both look and feel identical though.

I would recommend the Silverstone ones if you can find them in stock because they're much cheaper. I was lucky to get them all locally without having to use eBay or Newegg.

And if you guys can spot it, yes, that is a GPU support stand that I Macgyver'd out of black Lego pieces from my local store tongue.gif

Theyre on Amazon, and theyre all Prime items so thats where Ill be buying mine when I do.

This case hides the power supply so these extensions are perfect for it.

Is there a way to kind of straighten out the PCI cables? like the way custom ones are with the inside cables being shorter so that they have a natural bend?

or can you use a cable comb and make them look tidier?

Yep, they're not that stiff and very bendable. Cable combs would be optimal or perhaps even individually gluing the cables? I'm not too sure, haven't really looked into it.

But yeah, the XFX R9 280X power slots are just a bit to the left of the intended hole for the GPU cables so no matter what I do, they'll be a bit off centered to the left. (if you look at the photos).

EDIT: I have contacted two suppliers of cable combs (Mod Bunker and E22) if their cable combs are compatible with the extension cables of Bitfenix and Silverstone. I'll let you know what they say.
