Have you guys seen the new NZXT Sentry 2 coming out? I was going to wait for it but I think I changed my mind...Plus it is only 10 Watts per channel....
What do you guys think about it?

PS: According to UPS my Case will be here tomorrow!!!

@Mezzler: I'll let you know when I start painting and hopefully take some pictures!

I been in contact with an auto body shop about professionally painting my computer for me....well its gonna be about 250+ for a single color job. So, looks like I am back with me doing it *cringe*

So im taking a vacation in mid august and will give it a go then. I know i will at least do the interior in blue or black, and I have a spare side panel I will test on to see if i will do exterior as well. I better do some reading up on how to do it properly.

Man I LOVE IT. Even though I havn't installed any of the hardware yet i was messing around with it taking it apart and putting it back together and what not. The case is SUPER NICE. Only thing that is a negative are the drive bay covers there like cheap metal but nothing that 1x cd drive 2x fan controllers and a kama bay cant fix there will just be the 3.5 adapter one. I love how you can take it far apart without undoing any rivets. The fans arn't as bad as i thought but I will be replacing all fans with 120mm yate loons. The front panel thing with the CM logo on its heavy, you can kill someone with that solid peace of aluminum. Another thing is case seems to be covered in some kind of grease, i think its just from the manufacturing of it but its everywhere. I plan on getting a new camera and will link to a worklog once i start it next wensday.

It's actually plastic, the only plastic in the entire case aside from the drive mounts, the LED/port/switch leads and fan wires, and the plastic GPU cooling box thing.

I don't think you can replace the front fan with a smaller one... but even if you could, I wouldn't, it does pull in a nice amount of air and it's VERY quiet even at full speed.

Like I said in the OP, don't be reckless, it's quite a piece of metal.

I've never heard of that problem before... you should be able to get a cloth, lightly damp with a light dab of dish soap, and just wipe the grease off.

I am, maybe, gonna remove my KAMA bay. I have several things i want put in that would require removing the KAMA. I dont think ill notice much of a temp increase though. Gonna sppace out my 2 275's to the 1st and 3rd PCI-E slot and have my X-fi in the middle for better GPU temps. Hope it wont have much of an impact on my PSU temps. I am in the process of making a mod similar to boredgunners also. Making a 120mm Fan bracket out of UV Blue reactive plexiglass (5mm) and drilling out a hole to place it in front of my GPUs for that puch pull effect once i have my rear ducting in place. Also, I may get that 150cfm blue led for the front i have head people talk about for my front intake. If anyone hass that insteat of the 110cfm fan please give me some feedback on it.

Also...if anyone has the TRUE 120 cooler, let me know how to best apply tim to it. The book with it says to smear TIM on the HS as well as the CPU. I was using dot method. I have seen similar set ups with 5-10C better temps than mine, so any input on that would be awesome as well.

Well I did end up getting my case on Tuesday....Unfortunately, it has a ding in each side panel, and they didn't send my Cooler Master R4s

O well, it looks like I may be getting a side panel with a window for free out of it, and they should have shipped my fans by now..

But after getting it, I am not sure if I am going to paint it after all, I kind of like the silver on the inside plus it won't show dust as easy

Also Mezzler....I am not sure which Evga motherboard you have, but I would check the manual because you may not be able to have x16 on your second 275 if you put it in the third slot...it may only be x8

Also along with his TRUE question, which is the best way to mount the TRUE Horizontally or vertically?
I kind of need a quick answer because I should be building it tomorrow
