I am running the Dark Rock TF in my BH7. The 146mm is inclusive of fans. If you run the DR TF with both supplied fans you cannot use any top-mounted exhaust fans as there is no clearance. Some have experimented with just using the bottom fan on the DR TF (flipped to exhaust) and two top mounted exhaust fans. I have not tried this yet to see if I get better temps. Same restriction applies to the Noctua NH-C14S with top-mounted fan. It seems like the DR TF is one of the best air coolers for the Bullet cases. I am also interested in trying the Noctua NH-U9S as I am curious if a tower cooler will work better with the air flow management in the case.

Thanks! I really appreciate your help.

Quick, snaps, mind the perspective skewing...the cases are flush at the rear in pic 1, and flush at the front in pic 2

I decided to follow your lead and order a BH4 myself and cancel my BH2 order. I ordered it through the Amazon reseller Titan Rig so it should be getting here this Friday. I ripped apart my DDC 3.1 from my EK Predator which measures 2.5" x 2.5" so it should fit nicely by using a Micro ITX motherboard.

Wow it looks so small compared to the SM5. I think most cases favor the rectangle, vertical design because it gives you more clearance for rads and pumps/rezes. I can see why the SM5 was a popular choice for WC loops.

Would love to see someone chime in who has one of these cases with case handles. I'm probably going to remove mine (Titan Rig doesn't sell them without it, I don't really consider it a con though) but was curious if that would leave any insightly screw holes towards the top of the case. If so, might be worth plugging those up.

It ships with plugs in place, and you install the handles yourself.

What ever happened re the above?



That honor belongs to Gabriel, he said he doesn't want anything, bit I don't believe him. It's been an insane month and this month will be crazier with my cross country move, but he's gonna get something, and he'll like it!.. out else!

There are black plugs for the top should you wish to not have handles.
