Anyone with any mtn mod experience?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I bought a new rig last September along with all the watercooling goodies to go with it and went with the antec 900 case. However, much to my demise, the case fell far short of having enough room for the watercooling, the 8800 GTX Ultra barely left me with enough room to run my power cables let alone any watercooling setup.

So now I am here again and ready to buy a new case.

I was looking over at mountain mods at their custom cases and was going to through articmod.com and get their one of their prebuilt mountain mod cases, mainly so I don't have to worry about putting the case together as sturdy as it should.

Questions are: Should I go for the duality or the horizon, and is there anything else I need to add to the case? Looking at the mountain mod website the setup seems VERY bareboned, but not sure from the prebuilt website. It seems like I won't have any easy access front panel usbs or any of the digital fan controllers or anything of that sort. Any recommendations on what I should toss in to cover the basics? Also, I'm assuming it doesn't come with the fans either and would any 120x120x25 case fan with grill work?

I just don't want to order everything to find out I missed out one item and have to not only wait to get it in but pay the extra S&H. Thanks for the advice.

Yea, I was thinking when I got it that I'd be able to fit it all, but where I'm standing at now I had to move the hard drive bays out about a 1/4 of an inch out further from the furthest you should have to set them just in order to get my Harddrive cables to plug into my mobo, let alone trying to squeeze the water tubing in there.

Have no problem buying a good, new case. Figure one of the mtn mod ones would last me quite some time. I just want to make sure I have everything I need to be up and running and not have to wait another 1-2 weeks after I get everything in to get another part ordered in.
