Myself, I have the rotary Dremel tool, I used it when I modified my case, to cut metal with the cutting wheels, and to grind away the sharp edges after cutting, using the grinding wheels.

thanks! Yeah I didn't even know what a dremel is; this is my first build so I'm still getting used to some things. Thanks for the advice though!

Sigh, hey everyone, sorry if I'm coming off as annoying but I just have a ton of questions!

About the fans I was talking about replacing, I'm in between EK Vardars (http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/xD2rxr/ek-case-fan-3831109867532) or cooler master jetflos (http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/L4rG3C/cooler-master-case-fan-r4jfdp20pwr1) mostly because of their CFM (right now I'm using my Corsair H75 as my intake, so I'm trying to push a LOT of cold air into this case for even better cooling). I'm an overclocker, and I plan on keeping this case as long as possible. My temperatures right now are fine, but I guess I'm just trying to see how cold I can get it to.

As for my exhaust fans, I'm going to probably buy 2 of these (http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/Bj8Zxr/noctua-case-fan-nfr8redux1800pwm). I'm not looking at the regular noctuas mostly for aesthetics (although at this point my build is mostly black and red, to my chagrin).

I also had a question about the water cooling capabilities in this case. While I was looking at the Vardars, I spent some time on the EKWB website and played around with their "custom waterblock" configurator, and they claimed that they could find a custom water cooling loop for me. Mmhm. I don't believe it myself.

I mean, where would it fit?






Maybe in that little spot that's open, but I'm planning on upgrading to a bigger GPU soon. Sigh...

Howdy!

Longtime lurker - First time poster.

I currently have most parts of my build either in hand or on a truck (somewhere) en route to me.

Parts List from PCPartPicker:

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/8c7rhq

My plan is to try and shoe-horn a Swifttech H220-X 240mm cooler into this case, its going to be EXTREMLY tight fit, but I think it will happen with some slight case modification. The specs on the AIO Loop can be found here:

http://www.swiftech.com/H220-X.aspx#tab2

I've measured the interior of the front of the case and there is 255mm of room from top panel to bottom panel, and with the AIO's height of 247mm I think it could fit.



It looks like the dimensions may not take into account the fill port, but I can't imagine it protrudes from the radiator too terribly much.

I may include the GPU into the loop in the future, depends on how the radiator fits, and cost/availability of a gpu waterblock for the 480.

I'll post pictures as I start building to keep you guys updated.

Comments or ideas are greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks,
-Craig

I want to see how this goes for you. Please do post the results (with pics!)

Adding my build done in Nov-Dec 2016. Very happy with this case!

Hi! Anyone use the Fractal Design Kelvin T12 in this case?

Quick update:

I received the Swiftech H220-X yesterday and I was able to test fit everything. It looks as though it will fit with out intense modification to the case (just a front panel cutout for both fans). I covered the front frame of the case with painters tape and traced out a template for the cuts I'll need to make.

Unfortunately, my CPU cooler was damaged in shipping (finish was fairly scratched up, and a few radiator fins were bent) and It's currently in route back to the retailer (shout-out to www.coolerguys.com for amazing customer service) they should ship new one today and I should receive tomorrow. Will be working on the case modifications over the weekend and I'll make sure to take pictures and document all the modifications and detailed build log to follow.

I covered the front frame of the case with painters tape and traced out a template for the cuts I'll need to make. Its just a rough draft of what needs to happen. Before I cut anything I'll make a legitimate template with paper and exact dimensions for cuts, mounting holes, etc. and then transfer it to the case for modification. Also I need to figure out the best way to cut into the case frame material (dremmel? jigsaw?)

Close up of bottom edge of case:

I also had to return my power supply (EVGA SuperNOVA G1 ATX Link) as its entirely too long (length from back of case, Dimensions: 85mm (H) x 150mm (W) x 180mm (L)) and with the radiator installed would only leave 1/2" of clearance for the plugs and cables. It will be replaced with Silverstone 600W SFX Power Supply (Link) with dimensions: 125 mm (W) x 63.5 mm (H) x 100 mm (D). This will net in a little over 3" of extra clearance for cables and plugs.

Also, I am unsure about the 200mm front fan. I may keep it and use it, but I might not as well. I have access to CAD and a 3d printer and I was thinking about making an intake manifold that would convert the 240mm x 120mm opening for the rad fans to a 250mm-ish circle to match the front filtered intake of the case so that the radiator only draws air in through the filter in the front and no hot air is recycled from the case interior.

I've read all 158 pages of this forum and don't recall having seen someone use that specific cooler in this case, and PCPP doesn't list that cooler as having been used in the case either (Link) but as its a 120mm cooler I see no reason as to why it wouldn't fit so go for it! Tread some new ground! and take pics (or it didn't happen).

I look forward to seeing the result!

My submission for entry to this fine club. This build took some time as I really had to plan out the cable management. My temps are pretty good although I kind of wish the top panel had a slot on the left to expel heat from the GPU, seems I may be modding soon.

Great build!

Also, this isn't directed at you exactly, but has anyone here tried to take their computer with them on a plane? This case fits into my suitcase, but I'm not 100% sure if the suitcase is within the dimensions allowed (23cm x 55 cm x 40 cm) . I'm hoping that I don't have to change my case because I love this one so much!
