Oh well usually not patience when ordering things so should have paid the extra for faster shipping but already dumped so much money on other upgrades for the case.

I'd of probably gone black as well due to impatience smile.gif I generally don't build my PC's for aesthetics and it's more about having a clean/functional build but for this case I am glad I went a different route. I can do something slightly more themed now, a nice white/black/silver build focused primarily on aesthetics all water cooled too, it's going to look nice ;D

Good catch I am very impatience thumb.gif and just talked myself out of emailing CS to pay the difference on expedited shipping. Hopefully you will do a build log so I can see how your BH7 turns out because that sounds cool. Really can't wait to see everyone's builds so I can get ideas for future upgrades.

I was saving up for a 1080 to upgrade my 980ti but after seeing reviews/benchmarks I can wait until the 1080ti or whatever is next so I decided to start looking for a case instead. I have always done full tower cases but after slimming down components was looking for a smaller build. I wanted to go the ITX because they have the most unique cases but would have to buy a new motherboard and sacrifice things. That is how I stumbled across the BH7 looking for a small case that I can transfer most of my system (even though I still bought a lot more than I thought I was going to make it look nicer) into. Really excited for this case and it is the most I have ever spent on one but after looking at Caselabs other cases and build logs I feel it will be worth it.

I would agree with you... I have been in a similar situation were I have been wanting a smaller foot print but still have the power of a full ATX motherboard. It will be amazing indeed to see what people will come up with. As it is now I am working on finalizing all of my final components for my full water-cooling build in the BH7 the name of the build is called White Raptor. If you are ever interested in watching my progress check out the build log... so far I have some pics up to give you a idea of the components that will be going into the BH7. thumb.gifbiggrin.gif

If i get my hands on mine after the 20th of this month i can take any measurements people need to know, i had a bunch of rads i could fit in place but i sold a lot of them off in the last while and now i only have a few left.

The max I am planning to put in my build for the BH7 that will provide adequate cooling for me is a 120 rad and a 240 rad. I would definitely go with a slim radiator just because it can give you a bit more room to work with in the case. Also if anything higher RPM fans will do the trick and then tweaking the settings with the PWM signal your find the perfect balance. Yeah I am being very cautious but yeah once we get the measurements and the case in hands then it will all come together for lots of people biggrin.gif

My build should be starting next weekend. All of the components I need to complete the build start showing up tomorrow. I am very excited. I am now in the process of researching on how to build my own cable extensions. A fun time indeed
