- Bullet BH7
I said something about a case soon I know but I had to see how the cards looked on the board, just because all that brushed black aluminium together.
Ok, now maybe just a little look at the case too, USA! The third major part to be sent from California, well not to me, I got it from Romania.
I don't plan to keep the powder coat, so I thought it most appropriate that it should start off white just like the silver arrows.
Now time to start thinking what to do with it, most urgently I need to find space for rads and there just so happens to be a huge well ventilated and isolated chamber ready to go. Even a little extra width for some other stuff next to the PSU.
The E-ATX Classified drops in no problem, sort of.
In front of the motherboard tray there was an extra little cable tidy which fitted back in the wrong way around quite neatly.
The first placement i'm 100% set on! The Aquaero's have definitely got to go up here at the back.
And the second 240mm radiator quite logically placed in the front.
Some things that definitely won't be positioned as anyone anticipated are the USB3.0 and auxiliary PCIe power, because i'm pretty sure they won't fit inside the case. Starting to make 7-slot seem weird, but i'm all about saving space and not having USB headers.
RAD > CPU > GPU
Missed until now, EK's very stealthy backplates.
So, I think that's all the things
Yeah, definitely no chance of front fans while using standard length cards, i'd say getting a flat front bracket cut and countersinking the rad screws might just net enough space for slim fans.
Definitely do need all 4 memory heatsinks, the hierarchy is just right.
So a lot of things i'm starting to figure out, pump/reservoir placement not so much, maybe infront of the PSU. To actually fit front fans and have room to route tubing i'm definitely going to need to extend the case just a bit. I knew that all along and I do desperately want to get rid of the windows and hideous holes for handles that ruin the look of the case. Thanks handle people, you killed it for everyone. But then do I make it significantly longer to fit a 360 and start putting parts inbetween the motherboard and the radiator. Many decisions to go...
