Read some people saying they didnt notice any difference.

I dunno, I still think Im going to get one eventually though.


Pah, I just took delivery of the SM961 tongue.gif. I doubt you'd notice much if any, depends on the workload

Also the metal bracket that sits over it was a tight fit, quite a bit of pressure screwing it down. It certainly isn't going anywhere, if anything I'd be concerned about it warping the PSU casing.

Disgusting Intel stock cooler from an i5-2500K is on it though. Idles like 34c, wonder what that'll be like under load. Temporary until I get custom liquid parts in. Also just threw in a R9 270 until I get my new card in.

Will be putting on the acrylic panel this weekend after I clean it up outside and see *** is going on with it. After all the trouble this caused me at first, happy to say I'm enjoying it now. Pretty nifty case. I took out the entire bracket that holds the 3 internal drives, allowed me to fully use the cutouts and gives me full access to the motherboard backplate. I only use a single storage drive anyways, my external USB drive covers me for a backup too while I'm building my NAS box.

Will have to do drivers and whatnot tomorrow, 3:30am here and work in the morning.



I am using a Corsair AX1200 PSU and ran into the same issue with it also being 20cm long. Ended up modding the case a bit to make it easier to work with the PSU cables.

I have a EVGA 1000w PS too. I ditched the rubber boot that the PS cables route through. The edges of the case are rolled, so there's no risk of fraying. The reason the PS front bracket is hard to install is that a 220mm PS will overhang the rubber boot slightly, causing it to mount on a bit of an angle.

I got the 512GB version like you had ordered.

I noticed faster boot & shutdown. Usually Windows 10 shuts down the display early on and the system is still shutting down while the screen is blank, but with the 950 Pro there was essentially no delay and it all turned off much faster. Also noticed a speed increase installing Windows, minus the DVD drive lol. Haven't done enough with it yet to see how it performs for everyday tasks. I'd assume you won't see a difference in browsing but some games that are heavy on load times will likely see a big improvement, dragon age, star citizen, maybe Civ5 come to mind.

Previously I had 2 separate 120 and 128 GB SATA SSDs but needed more storage anyways so I jumped on the 950 Pro 512 and threw the other 2 into a squid caching server.

That looks really clean, I like it. I managed to fit all of mine snug but I may be in a predicament if I ever try to add another cable lol.

What vertical slot do you mount your gpu in? I have mine furthest from the mobo, but not sure if I like the gap. Thinking of swapping it to the middle, but then there is excess case on the outside.

Or you could mod the 8 slot rack back to being a 6 slot rack . . .

Which I think looks a lot nicer.

You can also move the PSU back about 20mm or so, which makes the cable management hole more useful.

I know someone have asked you this before, can't remember where in the 117 pages of qns n replies.
but what is the screen that you are using to monitor the temperature?

9in HDMI Display purchased on Amazon. Using CAM software for the System Info. I have a detailed post about it in my build log.

Hardware - System Status Display, USB 3.1 Card

Without reading the thousand posts in here, is it possible to mount the feet on the case on the top edge, so the case can be run in a reverse ATX? if you know what I mean, like it is upside down and would rather not mount on the wall.

My desk is setup so the case can go on the left of me against the wall, so normally cases have the window on the wrong side for my liking. Thanks.

There are no holes on the top edge to mount the feet that way. If it didn't bother you though, you could probably drill your own. I don't have my case in front of me though to look at but I think the feet area inside might be reinforced. Maybe someone can check theirs.

Anyone have any clue how i would go about hooking 2 together ?

Sure with they would make a monster P9 lol

I joined 2x Core P5s in this build.

To join them, I drilled two rows of about six holes up the edge, and riveted them together.

Note don't get the holes too close to the edge, unless you have a very slim rivet gun. Otherwise, you can use some nuts on the rivet stem to space it further away from the end of the rivet gun.

In the corners of the case there are reinforcing brackets. The bottom ones don't line up, so I had to drill and tap new holes and bolt through the two cases and corner brackets.
