It has been smooth sailing, did not really have any oh **** moments. TBH, the build process is quite simply a few holes here and there. Most of it is thought out way before purchasing any parts.

Air flow is absolutely horrible, I have 3 low speed (i'm talking really low: 400rpm) fans blowing down into the case for positive pressure, and no extract fans. CPU/GPU temps are not bad at 65/55c load respectively, but the aluminium case does get warm to the touch.

Clocks are i7 6700k @4.7 with 1.4V, and 1070 @2138 no extra voltage BTW

I'm thinking of reversing the fans for negative pressure and just deal with the dust, i.e. how lian li designed it to work. All the PCBs are up right so no place for any dust to settle, hopefully not too difficult to clean regularly.

The NZXT version of the asetek AIO has pretty long hoses, and should be able to be tucked away behind the ledge above the motherboard i/o, i use that ledge to hide the LED strip. I would look for the longest hose possible if your going that route, may get lucky and be able to hide hoses behind the motherboard. But the HG10 would look kind of ghetto, as it is in full front view and not that aesthetically appealing imho.

I see what you're saying. I think my intention will be to use my GPU as it is and probably just go with a 240 or 360 AIO up top.

Your build looks great!

Was going to go with the o5x myself if I did not already have a Asus Viii gene. But went for the Matx in the end as it is miles easier to get a loop in (once I moved the PSU down), and wanted a larger pcb to fill up the emptiness.

But yours is filled very well, never thought about fitting a full atx PSU in the o5x, nice. My build was not that challenging smile.gif

Daaaaang! Both those builds are fantastic. How well do you guys think 3 of the PCIE extensions would fit in the O6SX? I'm considering a build...

Hey man, I'm about to pull the trigger on my purchase and I have some more questions for you:

- How big is the motherboard cutout on the back side of the case? Is there enough room for a 120mm fan to act as exhaust?

- What comes in the box with the NZXT Hue+? How many LED strips are there? Do I need to order more?

- How many expansion slots are at the bottom? Is there enough room for a two-slot wide GPU (GTX 980 Ti Reference cooler) and 2 single-slot add-in cards (Asus Xonar DGX and Asus PCE-AC68) to fit? This is of course based on getting the required PCIE extension cables (Lian Li PW-PC-E38)

By 'back' I assume you mean the area under the i/o. There is not enough room for a 120mm unless major cutting is done, but this might effect the structure integrity of the whole case. 80mm should be doable.

The hue+ comes with 4x 30cm LED strips. I am only using 3 as I ditched the top one as I can't be bothered to find a way to hide it. The PC-O6S is by no means a small case but 4 strips should be enough.

There is 4 slots in the matx version, enough for your components. Make sure you buy the case 1st to see which type extension you get. There are 2 types, a ribbon one (like mine) and a newer plastic (?) one.

Just a word of warning, it's not really a 'performance' case. Your really only paying the high price for aesthetics and uniqueness. But being a ft03 owner like me, I think you will appreciate the quirkiness of the PC-O6 smile.gif, enjoy it and please post pictures

Okay, so I guess you didn't put a fan behind/under the CPU.. That's the area I was looking at. Had to do some research and I found that there is a space that looks like it was designed for a 120 or 140 fan. (System Fan section).

Good for the Hue! A few Amazon reviews commented that they didn't get the strips - that might have been a secondhand unit.

I wasn't looking for a performance case! smile.gif I bought the FT03 because I wanted to go to a MATX platform and I felt I need a case to match. About 2 years ago I saw the Digital Storm "Bolt" and really loved that case. Only recently I saw that it was a modified O5/O6SX.

The unique layout and that awesome glass panel drew me in. If (and highly likely) I place my order, I'll definitely put a build log up. I'm going the "cheaper" route though and just getting an AIO - Silverstone Tundra TD02... Some Noctua NF-S12B Redux 700 fans, the Hue+, and 2 of the PW-PC-E38 PCIE extensions.

What's that new plastic riser you're talking about? Got a link to it?

Early models and review examples have PW-PCI-E, which is the 30cm ribbon cable, like mine. Then there is the 38cm version, PW-PC-E38.

30cm is not even long enough to reach the highest 16x slot on the motherboard to the first 2 positions on the rack closest to the tampered glass (unless you go straight down, instead of through the back, I went straight down for my build). I assume you want the sound/wifi hidden behind the 980Ti reference cooler.

I have seen O6S builds with the revised PW-PCIE30-1 'plastic' shielded cable. Might be useful to thread between each other to change the order

It would not be an easy ride fitting 3 PCI-E extensions smile.gif, cable managing 3 ribbon cables would be a nightmare.
