I watched the coverage for this. Computex I think? Anyways, I will be very interested to see how this play out. I think TEC cooling in a compact unit would be very cool, no pun intended..

I might take the leap – according to TweakTown it's got a lot going for it. Great performance in a darn small package, and really quiet to boot. Plus it looks really slick. smile.gif

Nope, no custom water cooling.

This is a simple box that primarily will be used for folding. I'm not even going to put a video card in it(using the built in Z170 Intel Graphics), I'm not a gamer so I won't miss it. I might put the M.2 PCIE card with the 512GB Samsung 950 Pro in the card slot or I might put the 950 in the slot underneath the motherboard(ASRock Z170 Fatality ITX) if it will get enough cooling. Another thing I might do is LED's.

Probably no build log as I'm not doing custom water cooling or modifying the case, probably will be put together in the space 3-4 hours. I will post pictures with specs though.

Sounds good.
As for the corsair h100i cpu cooler vs air cooling: Air cooler's ARE DEAD QUIET especially noctua and dark one's.

I am very eager to see someone do a custom water loop in the BH2 and make it look clean.
Can't wait to see what people come up with.

Sadly I don't think many people have purchased the BH2 compared to the BH4 and BH7.

No wonder since the BH4 is just slightly bigger than BH2 and can accommodate both micro-ATX and mini-ITX.

True, but there is one advantage of the BH2.
Which is: If you look at the front of the case on the inside (behind the front 2 intake fans) there is a-lot more room to put anything you'd like for example a reservoir + pump while the bh4 and bh7 don't have that room at the front behind the intake fans.

Even if you used a mini-itx mobo on the bh4 that front platform doesn't exist.
