LOVE that rear upper deck exhaust fan. Chromax accents look really nice also.

You still mounting that 1600watt PSU in the belly of your (BH7) beast? biggrin.gif


.

its right below the mobo. Very tricky but I just need to be patient with the cables.

There was a post earlier regarding pancake coolers. But here is the reason why I have the fan in a certain way.

From my humble point of view, that does not apply to your scenario since you have 2 front fans providing airflow very close to the cooler and also 1 exhaust fan all horizontal.I mean this is not a HTPC. The other way around, you could provide airflow towards VRMs and Dimms while keeping your CPU cool. Even in the case the way you did it may sound right, you may just gain 1 degree maybe ? I would follow Noctua manual, but that's just me.

TBH,this is my 1st top flow cooler and 1st time trying that orientation. I will try both orientations though.

Hey guys, skimmed through all the pictures posted on this forums but couldn't find any BH2 build.
Anyone making theirs can share a update with some pics?
Planning on making a build with the BH2 case but need some ideas from some other builds before I start.

Also, the hdd cages in this caselab's case ... are they any good?
Reason I ask is because in my personal experience with 5 builds so far i have noticed that hdd's make a ton of noise when used if their cage is not good.
Any ideas?

Thanks.

I have a fitment question.

I am looking at getting matx version. I will be using evga 970 hybrids in SLI, planning to put the radiators in the front of the case, then another AIO cpu cooler into the top.

Will the 970 hybrids fit in there? Also, can I use a 120x2 radiator on the top for the cpu to go with the hybrids?

This question is the only thing holding me up from placing my tangerine order.

As far as I know they're the same as the one in the mercury line which I find to be very good, they're rubber dampened so the hard drive doesn't make much noise.
