Good thing you didn't tell me that.

I am torn between those two. Primo looks really good, and is well thought and well made, but 900D gives me more space to work with hardline acrylic and has better window... #1stworldproblems

I would be inclined to agree if it wasnt the size of a an elephant lol

Then r5 is about as big as I would realistically like to go:)

A 900D would be a dream case ideally but that's would kill me seeing it look empty

You're going to end up dropping thousands with all the advice these WC aficionados are giving you. If you already know you'll graduate to hardline tubing, you might as well go with it now. If you're getting a case for WC, just get a Caselabs case. You'll end up getting one eventually.

Ugh, I don't know. Acrylic is not that easy to work with and I honestly wouldn't recommend it for the first go around. It's daunting when you first start off and can be off putting when you screw up your first bends, not to mention the measuring involved. Looking back on the difficulty level I'd give soft tubing a 3 and hardline an 8 out of 10. Even getting sli cards lined up while using hardline was a total pain in the butt. It doesn't flex...at all! So if you have some tight spaces between the intake and output on the cards not only are you trying to mount this preassembled mass into your case lining everything up in the slots but you also have hardline tubing connected to it (in my case at least) that you have to line up as well.

The looks of it can't be beat though and for some no plasticizer issues. Too bad I have external radiators mad.gif

I don't think acrylic is that hard to work with. You buy extra and instead of going crazy trying to measure exact I usually just overestimate and cut the ends to fit after the bend(s) are done.

Between Geno's videos and the one Ronsanut did +the Monsoon kit I was ready to go.

Take a look at my rig pics. wink.gif


The 900D fits more rad. But for me another 360 or so is nothing when with the amount of externals I use. The Primo is also shorter so it fit under my desk whereas the 900D is too tall.

Not gonna lie with you bro, I should have got a case labs case like 5 months ago when I originally looked at them.
