To keep the aesthetic, I decided to to have the port hidden under the front panel.

Hiho Club,

after a few years of money-induced absence from the desktop world, i've decided to build a new system from scratch and i'm seriously considering the X9 in black. So far, i'm a fan of larger cases but i've never had a cube before. What really caught my eye here was the horizontal placement of the mainboard. I've seen pics of the Corsair Carbide 540 flipped over, which were also quite intriguing, but then again, it doesn't offer this amount of space wink.gif Also, i'm worried about my cats using the case as a bed and cracking the window frown.gif But then again, they could also jump onto the X9 with fans on top eek.gif just measured my desk, there would be ~25cm between the top of the X9 and the desk itself)

I know that this case is almost predestined for wc, but i'm a bit hesitating as i know my personal luck wink.gif But i still think about that a lot as i was a bit shocked by the temps of current graphics cards. I neither want to oc a lot nor use multiple cards, i simply enjoy good temps.

The system itself is not that far developed/decided, but i guess it's going to be a 380X or 380 (as a temp until Polaris comes out) with an i5 6600, one SSD and one large HD for storage.

I've read the whole thread and i was really impressed by your builds (especially IT Diva's Flux Compensator drool.gif )

There were some ac users here, so i hope you are still reading wink.gif Can you tell me if all the additional space and the many fan slots make a difference regarding ac efficiency? All the reviews i've read so far only benched the stock configuration and the results were not that impressive.

There was one user who used the rear most top fans to blast on the components (unfortunately, i can't find the posting, of course...). If you read this: How did you set up the rest of your fans? Did you manage to create a separate airflow for the drives / PSU?

First don't be afraid of water cooling. Just be cautious. Read Read and Read again. Check reviews of products and watch a lot of video's. There are AIO kits as well as full water cooling kits that come with just about everything you would need.

My system has 13 fans right now all 120 pwm but one. Going to add 4 more on top when i get around to it. 12 are controlled off the MB pwm headers via swiftech sata hubs

3 noctura Nf-f12 in the front 4 enermax tb vegas 120 on top 4 ek varder 120 1850 rpm on the rad enermax tb vegas in the back and the stock case fan on the back. With my asus r9 280 and no over clock on my cpu (need to change mb out ) my system idles at 25c and the max i have seen gaming is 37 on the cpu and 40 on the gpu.

I have one ssd right under the MB and one HD in the caddy under the MB tray above the PSU and i am having no issues with heat.Blue and white was my first ever water cooled system and i love it

So welcome to the core forums and good luck on your new build

I have the Core X2, currently running 11 of the EK Vardar F3-120 cans. 10 of which are installed push/pull on my radiators. The last one being installed in the rear exhaust spot.

Also, don't be too scared of WC'ing, quality soft tubing and quality compression fittings are nearly impossible to leak if you take you time. I started with a XSPC Raystorm D5 Photon kit and have expanded it with GPU blocks, another rad, now running their Raystorm Pro CPU block.

I'm not having any heat issues and I have my SSD and HDD installed above my PSU.

Welcome & Enjoy

Has anybody tried to install 2x3x180mm Radiators in the Top? From what ive measured it should fit exactly with only a few mm space left.

Seems like a bad idea in terms of tubing mess and/or fitting expense. Just go with the longest rad you can fit. Wider doesn't really mean better with rads, it's more the length that matters unless you have some ridiculously skinny rad with low FPI count. Ok no snarky comments.

i mean 2 540mm radiators
