or is there a way to mount the HDD tray container without the base? I put a 480 in the back and used both brackets! I could use another.

Edit to add: I really appreciate just how easy it was to flip the side panels and the header.

I know we are working on spare pieces, Let me check on when those will be available.

If I recall, there is space under the MB for a HDD and an SSD, so I will be ok for now, but would like to migrate long term storage over from the old rig at somepoint. But the data is still accessible through the network and is not critical.

So you have to choose between hard drive cages and radiator yet again?
That you have to remove the cages to fit the rad is normal, but that you cant fit the spare cage in an open space because you used up the brakets on the rad is stupid.

Sounds to me like someone in the shipping department didnt think through it and only sent half of the brakets you would need to make full use of your case.

Agreed, they should've shipped the case with four brackets rather than the two. It means that you're also restricted if you want to stack the cases and need to try to arrange parts for the case to run four radiators in the top stacked case. Another issue i've noticed in relation to the liquid cooled stacked demonstration shown here:



You have alot of wasted space in the top case where the motherboard usually goes that could easily fit another layer of radiators if another rail higher up was provided or a spare could be bought. You could also theoretically fit a fourth 480mm in the bottom chassis if you had a second rail fitted in the case and chose to use an matx motherboard in the x9.

I think its a great case for modders at a better price smile.gif

Agreed. It is an awesome case with so much potential. But therein lies the problem. It has so much potential for modding that an insane case which could be one of the best in the market for either an insane file server or insane liquid cooled system that it seems sort of half-assed as an awesome case. Don't get me wrong, I'll be buying one as soon as I can afford it as it is one of the best cases in the market, but it could be the best case on the market.

Well i almost bought this case but in the end i went with my dream case for my current build. I will definitely be building in this case in the next 6 months for a friend. It will be a full H20 system with total overkill parts to show off the case smile.gif I just saw this case in a shop here on display from the supplier and i must say i impressed. thumb.gif

You could use 1 bracket for each of the bottom 480s with a 120mm hanging over on either side, but I did not go that route, because I am only going for 1 480 in the bottom. If you go look at some other similiar but way more expensive cases on the market, you will find that there is stuff left out of the base package there too, and you have to buy parts to mod your way. Looks like it is going to end up that way here, or so I hope. We also only payed a fraction of the cost of some other mostly empty cases.

Its still early because I dont have the motherboard in hand, but I am 99% sure that my cables are going to be short going to the USB3.0 headers now that I flipped the front input panel to the right side.

Yeah, you do got a lot of waisted space, but it would be a little strange to remove a radiator just to get into the case.
But, if you need cooling, so is it worth it I guess.

So far so does it seem like you need a few things to be able to max out the case:
Metal saw, welding tools and some spare metal, plus maybe a few brakets.
If you spend a day with that, so can you probally go for an 8x 480mm rad build in a dual X9 and still have room to spare for everything else.
