You can call our support, 800.988.1088. If they have an extra panel in white, they might be able to work something out.

Thanks man!

I will give them a call thanks thumb.gif

Gotta let all that white shiny goodness be seen . . . . biggrin.gif

What did you use to cut out the window ?


Used a jigsaw with a very fine tooth blade for the cuts, and then finished the edges with an angle grinder once the rails were on so I had a perfectly straight edge to grind back to.

@ThermalMike, any chance to buy separately or even include one more radiator holder located in the bottom section of the case ?
It comes with just one holder which is kind of weird as that is ideal place to put 2 rads redface.gif

Do we have an approximate release date for the x5? We looking within a month or like 6 months?

They will probably sell more radiator holders on their site. Their site has a bunch of accessories for their x9.

Hello everyone!

I am currently planning my X5 build, and i was wondering if anyone had any advice on a aircooled system.

what i have laying around:

3x 120mm Be quiet! Silent Wings 2 PWM's to put in the front
1x 140 Be quiet! Silent Wings 2 PWM to put in the back

i was however considering populating the two top slots with 200mm LED fans, to avoid having to run LED's in the case, any thoughts on this idea?

Get some more be quiets and run LED strips. It will be a better looking build imo.

Do you care about looks, or just cooling? Also sometimes LED strips (RGB) strips aren't always needed, you can go with quality UV strips and UV reactive fans/cables to make the guts of the case look black and only the cables and fans pop with color. This is what I did.. None of my fans have LED's in them, only UV. This creates for a darker look inside the case which will allow you to not highlight cables that you don't want to be seen. I still have a RGB, but often never have it on, I don't like alot of ambient light bleeding into my room.

Here's a pic w/ the white RGB strip off, notice how black the case looks, also the rear LED fans were running at 35% power so the LED's were super dim....



The way the top mesh panel is divided into (2) mesh parts it might not look the best or function that well w/ the 200's on top.

I'd do 6x120's for the top, that would look the best and would align up nicely w/ the mesh on the top panel giving you better airflow.

Have these top fans set as intake, this will blow cold air directly down onto the CPU/GPU/MOBO.
This will provide excellent cooling, especially for the GPU being directly hit with cold air.

Use your 140mm for rear CPU exhaust.

Then I'd go with a single 200mm for the front as exhaust. This looks really mean/aggressive with a fat 200mm up front, it's what this case was made for.

If you want to fill some of the empty space you can put a couple 120's on the bottom as exhaust.

I know this sounds unconventional, but I've spent about 40hours messing around with fan configurations and this will give you hands down the best temps.











On the X5 it also looks like you can probably fit a 140 or 120 above the 200 on the front panel, but I didn't like the way it looked due to the mesh being a different texture, so I removed the 140 I had on the top and blacked the top out w/ cloth tape making the bottom 200 pop out and look much much cleaner...
