Do the email alerts if you haven't done so. Ncix, frys, and Mc may have them (work blocks these guys for me atm).

Very much a work in progress.. First time with hard tubing.. In top rack.. First loop done(white).. Working on red loop . If i have any tube left over May try to fix some of the bumpier bends.. Trick as always is to go slow , easy on the heat..
Have about 1mm of space between top rads and sli fittings.. 2 of the blocks are entirely different, so have to use overhead angles.. Would have to use rad shrouds for push/pull.. Can't seem to find those koolance ones anywhere in Oz..

Bottom rack is all soft tubing

Once looped, will work on cable management . Have some sleeved cables.. Going to try some needlework skills to get them to behave.. Waiting on some fan splitters.. Then Lighting and leak testing.

Can I join da club ?

Yeah I've heard and saw the premium they're charging. It sucks tbh. Imho, if they delay sending you the case (aka back order ). Get your money back and order through another site @ retail.

its a case that really gets you all giddy, so I can understand the wait can be hard and some are willing to pay a bit of premium to get things. You'll love the huge potential in wc this thing has. This is really one of the best wc cases (for maximum wc hardcore funs) under $200. You really had to find a once in a while used custom case to get something similar (and sometimes still more expensive). Once last bit of advise; contact newegg bright and early (they're pst) and ask if there's an eta. If it works for you, cancel the ncix. Or have ncxi pricematch newegg if possible.








Great news! I found another member selling the piece I'm missing! As some have already figured out (by my wanted add in the market), I'm adding a fourth Monsta 480. That means relocating the psu. I've made some guesstimates and I've dabbled with psu relocation before (800D, Elysium, & 900D), so I"m hoping all goes as planned. So, this is really absurd, grotesque, over-the-top, over-kill to word, un-neccassary but ocn-way, upgrade tongue.gif. CL has yet to ship my psu bracket and psu hole (vented hex) cover, though they're close by and should arrive fairly quick. The rad I'm waiting to finalize the sale and get that hopefully shipped out soon. I'm projecting sometime next week I should be done. New reservoir and some extra fittings have already arrived so at least I can be busy with these for now.

I'd love to see how you relocate the psu. It's possible to use the fan holes of a psu to directly screw it into a 140mm fan mount but anything better would be awesome. I need to wait a few months before building my system but I was considering 4 480 radiators with a 180mm 360 radiator in the front.

I love the niche in the chassis front panel. Are you planning to illuminate it with a led and/or lighten the inside for contrast? You could modify a bamboo placemat for a textured backdrop.

later when the price drops if I like it I might buy a second and keep it in my garage as a just in case.... case.

wermad, I thought I was "bonkers" with 3 480s in this case (actually pretty easy).

FOUR 480s?

Will you be replacing the Windowed side or are you going to place the 4th 480 horizontally on the floor ?

I've got to see how you mount the PSU!
