One of the better reviews so far, he even show them stacked thumb.gif

Just 1 thing I saw, have we all being mouting the side brakets wrong? He says they go inside the bar, but everyone I have seen does it like this:


Edit again:
It looks like you dont lose the mouting option for the rads, when stacking, as long as you are fine with them not being removable without taking off the top case.
Or do you? I havent checked, but if you screw in the rad from the bottom instead of the top, should you not be able to remove them with the cases still stacked?

We are mounting them correctly, he is doing them wrong..
You wont be able to mount them on the inside as you wont be able to put the 2 bottom screws in with the fans or rad there.

I also notices that he missed the something on the MB tray.
I have 2xssd and 1x3.5" mounted to that piece under the mb tray, and they all on the bottom side just above the PSU.
The 3.5" can be turned 90 afrom shipping position and you can fit 2xssd next to it or another 3.5"
Its all in the manual, the mounting options

I can't decide if I want to buy a black one now or wait for snow edition. Black would be red highlights. White would be black secondary, since the case still has black screws and i/o cables and I would do all other cables and liquid in red, or maybe all black and white. Is the black one a matte black or a glossy black? It is hard to tell in pictures.

It's a matte black. But not black black on the outside, a few shades lighter, if that makes sense.

Thanks, makes sense, leaning heavily towards waiting for the snow version, unless they say it is 6 months out or something.

I have posted some eta's for the snow in a previous post, but that is for Australia though, I would imagine it would be around the same time elsewhere.

I had the same thought.
Its a shame they put so much black into it, but most/all of it can be covered up, with some work and paint+tape.
The harderst would have been the I/O cables, but there are white extention cables out there, so you can hide the black once under the front panel, if you do it right.

Hopefully it is the same time frame everywhere.

An all white build would look really great, my motherboard is black with red on the heatsinks, I am not sure I want to paint the board white, or pay for an asus sabertooth and there is no white option for GPU waterblocks. If it was air cooled Enermax has an all white CPU heatsink and Galax has the HOF 980 that is white. So I will leave the pure white build to someone else.

The other easy way is to swap the window with frosted glass and it will have a snowy look but will not allow the insides to be seen.
