The stock cables are pretty damn long. I have mine in a box and just pulled them out and was surprised. My custom sleeved cables are only a tad longer.

Yep CPU cable is long enough and easily fits thumb.gif. I was using mine without extensions up until recently.

So I ordered my Photon D5 PWM pump (and other stuff) on Saturday. Well apparently the upgraded XSPC PWM version hasn't come in yet. They're asking me if an Alphacool or swiftech PWM would be okay. What should I do? My case won't be in for a while, so should I wait for the XSPC to come in stock, or have the switch it for one of the others? My current one is an XSPC, and I would like to match it even though they are technically the same pumps.

Sorry for all the double post. I don't like to edit biggrin.gif

I ordered my last pump on Saturday, but unfortunately the XSPC D5 PWM wasn't in stock. So they switched it out for the swiftech MCP655 PWM version. The only parts left for this build are the 140 fans and some dust filters and that's it.

I'm hoping to get my case before the 24th, but I don't see that happening. Someone else who ordered 4 days before me was told by CL that there estimate for shipping was the 20th. Kind of disappointed by that.

Steezy, I'm here and I'm subbed, but I think your poll should be about luxury cases in general, not just CL. They're a tad to big for some of us, even the "small" Nova X2M.

I had mine custom made and Never used the Stock.

I had mine Made to 30" Long. But I have about 6" of excess in the lower compartment.

It was just asking if you'd ever go all out on a CL. I don't know to much about any other luxury cases that cost an arm and a leg, besides the 900d with I wouldn't consider luxury biggrin.gif And welcome to my log. Thanks

Thanks you sir. Also, I cant decided if I should drop my RX360 in the bottom compartment and upgrade to a 1600 P2 PSU that I can get for cheap. Should I drop the 360 and get a 240 or such? if not, ill get the 1200 P2 which I can also get for cheap. That fan on the 1300 G2 is scaring me mad.gif

You are going to Rebuy another PSU because you think the Fan in the 1300 G2 is loud?

I have already boughten the G2. but I can get the 1200 P2 for half off. And I don't think the Fan is loud... I know it's loud. I just placed it next to my current case with all fans running at 800-900 rpm, and the 1300 G2 is so much more over powering. I can sell the 1300 G2 for around $140 and maybe take a loss of like $20, and the fact that ill only pay $150 for the 1200 P2
