I've never ran my 4790k at stock speeds, i run it 4.8 @ 1.32v.

I can try some stock speeds tomorrow, pm me if i forget.

I plan to overclock my 6700K to similar levels, just haven't gotten to that yet in the new case so am running it at stock. What temps do you get in your current configuration? Thanks!

I just played 1 hour of BF1 and max temp was 70, it's pretty warm weather just now infact thats the highest i've seen it.

I can try some stress testing tomorrow but i think in daily use this is about as high as i will see.

Does anyone know if the white case is painted or powdercoated? Going to be doing a House of Kolor job on it and this will determine the type of primer used, etc. Thanks guys.

Just received my BH7, and the size is much smaller than I had imagined. I'm pleased. Of course the BH7 DemciFlex filter pack that I purchased doesn't fit at all, however (only the L and the 80x2 fit properly, and the top filter doesn't fit at all, not even a little bit).

Now that I'm looking at it beside my Mercury S5, I'm wondering why I haven't heard of anyone planning to do a vertical mod (it looks like a mini S5). It seems so obvious to put this thing on its side. I wish I had ordered the non-windowed version. It'll be really easy to mod, I should think. And adding a full-sized window wouldn't be too difficult (I hope CaseLabs sells a replacement panel with a full window on top and nothing on the sides). Would this be structurally sound?

Honestly, I think this case should have been designed as a horizontal/vertical convertible case from the get go...replacement panels with proper holes or alternative windows wouldn't be a difficult to make and sell, would they? Can't wait to build and mod it.

Pics for size please. Would like it to see how it compares to a BH4. I'm thinking about canceling my order of the BH2 and upgrading to a larger size with the potential of doing a CPU only loop.

Awesome, thanks. Should make it a quick paintjob then.

What ever happened re the above?

Should be getting my BH7 case sometime this week. wheee.gif I'm trying to figure what air cooler to go with. I've been eyeing the Noctua NH-C14S or the Be Quite dark rock tf. Will this cpu cooler work with 2 fans mounted on top for exhaust? Is the 146mm of tower clearance include the top mounted fans or is it with out fans? I'd really appreciate the help.
