Didn't know about titan rig until 2 weeks later, checking in the back of the web site of who carries what. Titan rig set a whole store, use to amazon being piece by piece. (crazy)

Thought I would ad link for convience

nice finding. Never bought from them but others have without any problem. I would take a shot if I was on US.

TitanRig is now stocking CaseLabs cases with a Buy Now link. There is banner for it on the CaseLabs homepage.

So, I've had my BH7 for a few weeks now and I absolutely love this thing. biggrin.gif It was a ton of fun and a bit challenging to build in, especially for someone who just came from a nice and roomy 600T. I spent a good 5 or so hours just moving the components over (though I was taking my time to be as careful as possible) and I've definitely learned that a case as compact as this one that can fit as much as this one definitely requires some more planning than just throwing the parts in and hitting the power button. As I built, I only encountered two minor issues/notes/complaints with the case.

The first one is that while my H100i technically fits, it was a very tight fit because of the length of the tubing. The tubing had to bend quite a bit to fit to the point where I worried about it being too tight and the hose coming off at either end. If there was a way to make the tubes shorter and/or put in angled fittings, the H100i would have worked great, but obviously that isn't an option. This is a fairly minor gripe though because I ended up swapping the H100i out for a BeQuiet! Dark Rock TF due to some pretty significant pump noise I encountered recently, and the Dark Rock fits perfectly and looks great inside the case. I would highly recommend the Dark Rock if anyone is looking for a solid air cooler.

My second minor issue is with the hard drive cage mounting system. I love how easy it is to take the drives out with the removable panel and how you can put the cage in two different locations. My issue is that both positions of the cage have a drawback:
  • In the front position, the cage makes it VERY hard to deal with cables (specifically the 24 pin) because of where they all need to go but can't due to the cage being in the way.
  • The rear position puts the sata connections on the drives just a little bit too close to the power supply and puts a decent amount of strain on the cables going to the drives (especially if you don't have 90 degree connectors).
If there were holes in the removable panel near the back of the case so you can rotate the drive cage 90 degrees (long side of drive runs parallel with long side of panel), it would solve both of those issues right away. Obviously that won't work for everyone (people with two cages or cage/accessory mount) but for those of us with a single cage, it would work very well. I realize this would be an easy mod, but matching the quality of the stock holes would be pretty difficult (especially for a novice modder like myself).

I wanted to bring both of these up so that people looking to buy and build in this case would be aware of them and can adjust their build accordingly. Also, maybe if we ever see a revision to this case/the Bullet series, something like the extra drive cage holes could potentially be added. thumb.gif

Which dark rock model did you get? And I keep reading reviews about how annoying it is to install. Your experience?

Edit: just realized this is the bh7. I have the bh4 and need to decide on a cooler as I have most of my other parts incoming. Anyone recommend the dark rock for the bh4? If so which model?

Feel better reviewed vendors and the only store selling or has the BH7 for sale is titan rig.
So in other words can choose between CaseLabs and titan rig if you want the bullet, other than that no one else is carrying them.
No one waits for the page to scroll through, Its like I got to go, where I need to go, I dont have time for scrolling banners, Annoying like those banners on you tube
Pre-conditioned ignore.

I've dealt with Titan before for a handful of fittings when I was testing what colours and the like, and whilst it was a small order, they handled it pretty fast and easily. So there is that. Wish I thought of them when I was ordering my BH2 - I'd long since have had it by now. smile.gif

Can't help about the BH4 cooler situation because I got the BH7 but what I can help with you or anyone else that gets the be quiet! Dark Rock TF and that is use this video for installation: https://youtube.com/watch?v=-DZucjXH0VI Manual is a little confusing but this guy gives a couple of tips that made the installation easy and not in the manual. And yes that means I finally got my white on white BH7. Pics coming soon.

The Dark Rock TF is good, fits well in the case. It's a little annoying to install, it wasn't too bad on x99 but I've heard its more annoying on the other sockets.

Here are a couple of shots of what I call the "White Hulk":








Really sad my gpu is too long to get a fan in front so will have to get a smaller one soon. Anybody have any recommendations I could do to help the temps in the mean time like adding an exhaust fan to the back grill or put on the top fans, etc?
