Quick Question, anyone know if MSI or EVGA 1080 cards will fit in the case along side an AIO? PickPCParts keeps shooting out a warning. I just want to double check before I buy the case.

Yup, I did this as well. No issues at all. You have to remove the 200mm fan to install the radiator, but there weren't any fitment issues. You can see the 200mm fan behind the radiator in this picture. I had a 120mm fan installed on the radiator as well for some push-pull action and it worked well. A little tight running the 24-pin cable, but I made it work

The warning may be more for card length and width fitting in the case since I don't see how an AIO would affect the GPU fitting

Thinking about doing a MiniATX build with this case but I need to know if a Noctua NH-D14 would fit. I know the maximum cooling height is 140mm and the D14 is 160mm, but I have seen a post on a forum that indicated that it would still in fact fit. I have my reservations though, if my cooler would indeed fit this case, at all.

So anyone know, tried a DH14 and a V1?

Thanks.

V1 + D14? Just so happens have both waiting for some build time.

The short answer is: No. Not in the V1's stock config. The D14 is 3 fins and some heatpipe nubs too tall. (MB is a P8Z77I)



However, a few minutes with the dremel and some hotrod hood scoops, it would be fine. (Which is what I'll do with my V1 build - but with a slightly larger cooler. lol)



Don't mind the gap. It's only temporary. This is a great case for modding. Don't let those stock limits limit your build.

From my sorta exact measurements, a cooler 149mm tall will just touch the top, if using a vented metal panel. The plexi panel reduces clearance by another mm or two. But, that's before Mz Dremel sings her brief siren song. biggrin.gif

If you don't want to mod the top, and I can't think of reason why you wouldn't, there's a good chance the Scythe Fuma would fit. It's a 149mm twin tower that can cool in the tall leagues (ehume's review)

While the boring stock V1 doesn't fit the D14, easy to let out a seam here and there and let the D14 breathe. tongue.gif

(Oh, if when you do mod the V1, don't stop at the top - remove the entire 80mm fan grille section - the D14 can do its own exhaust just fine - only need to remove that restrictive rear grille. The magic of dremels, nibblers and aviation snips)

Does anyone know where I can buy replacement PCB for the front panel? My HD audio cable has one of the thin cable broken off due to improper crimping... I re-crimp it with pliers, but it's probably a temporary solution.

Thanks for the reply and the info! Yeah I love this cooler so much I went with the V21 instead and with a MicroATX MB instead -- I really wanted to go mini-- but I might just do a small HTPC for the living room with the V1 instead.

Thanks again for such a great post! thumb.gif

While they do offer some spare parts on their site, don't see that V1 panel assembly. Probably best to contact thermaltake: http://www.thermaltakecorp.com/content.aspx?cid=8&s=20

According to this guy, it should actually fit! He says he successfully put in a 11.61" long GPU, despite the case specs saying 11.22" (285mm) maximum. I probably would have got that Gigabyte card if I had known beforehand, but don't want to risk another mishap. I'm getting a reference design to be sure I have no further fitment issues.

WARNING


MSI Gaming GTX 1070 is too tall for this case! Don't make the same mistake I did. It would require some significant modifications to the frame and front panel, or special low-profile adapters to plug in the power connectors. If you have any ideas otherwise, let me know! I am returning mine, since it looks like I would have to cut holes in the top of the case otherwise.

This GPU is about 5.5" tall, versus about 4.5" on the FE reference cards.

Luckily my credit card has return protection (Newegg policy on GPUs is replacement only).
I am getting a reference card instead. Too bad, cause this card looks sweet sadsmiley.gif

Can some one help me, please. The case comes with 2 brass standoffs, but it looks like there are already "built-in" risers. Can I just put the mobo those?

I also noticed that there is none hole where there isn't a rider. Do I have to put a standoff there? The mobo is pretty secure even without it. Is there anything wrong with leaving a hole that isn't screwed in?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Just use the 4 included mobo screws to attach the mobo directly to the 4 built-in risers. No standoffs needed.
