One comment: although you've not stated it, and since it is a Core V1 dedicated thread, I'm assuming a Core V1 build.
If this is the case, you may want to reconsider going semi-modular only, vs. modular. It can be usefull to unplug, PSU-side,
in order to have more ease to plug big connectors on the MB. You know, the ATX ones that are often hard to plug without
bending the MB too much under the pressure.

I had a hell of a time with mine, and that was a fully modular PSU ! Can't imagine how **** it would have been in semi-mod land ...

Yes, core v1 mini... And i've thought long and hard about the PSU before pulling the trigger because the first thing I bought was the case, and envisioned the build around that case. And while you bring up a solid point, looking at my PSU and going damn, I should have went full modular LOL, i'm going to be cutting, shortening, then "sleeving" the current 24pin wiring. After dry fitting, all I need is a 6-8 inc 24pin cable. Hell I thought about desoldering the male connector on the mother board to opt for a 90 degree connector for ease of use, but I didn't because it will hide the pretty sleeving I have for it... LOL. I didn't want to buy another PSU, and i'm very competent in my eletrical/soldering ability. So i'm also making the "3" 8pin needed for the CPU power and the KingPin card power and "1" 6pin connecter for the KingPin also to length so that it's made for the case at hand, and nothing else. So while i'm biting the bullet for not going fully modular, I think I will be ok... but we shall see biggrin.gif!!

The theme colors are matte black, black chrome, red, and carbon fiber... my water cooling routing will be nothing you have ever scene. I know i'm hyping this up a bit, but being that I should have gone to art college instead of the Marines, i'm treating this like a piece of art instead of just a build. I'll start posting part pics here soon...

Thanks everyone, can't wait to start building/sharing... havn't got all of my parts just yet... miscellaneous parts still floating around our delivery system, LOL!

So quick question, how do you fit in 4 drives into the drive bays? Whenever I try to fit the 2.5" in the back of the drive bay as indicated, it seem to not allow me to be able to screw the drive bay back onto the original attachment; given how the stands on the other side of the screws is oriented.

So the SSD provisioning on the two bracks should have holes on the main plate. If not you can drill some in the dimensions of SSD's.

Did you have to modify the hole size for the Power button at all? I have one of those switches left over from an old build that I think would look nice

19mm switch should slide right through. 22mm switch you will have to dremel out material. Good luck, and yes these switch look a hell of s lot better then factory.

has anyone tried to take a core V1 in carry on luggage? would it fit in a max-size carry on bag? (I think 45 liter compact bags are max size)

It have 2 holes for screws on one side, but the other side have weird pertrusions that doesnt let the drive sit flatly on the back, which doesnt allow the back drive to clear enough space for the drive bay to be screwed on. I can leave the drive bay unsecured, but it wont allow me to fit 2x 3.5 with 2x 2.5, only 4x 2.5". I am just curious whether there is something im missing here.
