Noctua NF-P14 FLX 140mm (2ea) one on the bottom to pull cool air in and one on the back to pull hot air out. All of these are painted to match the case (black case and red blades). And I am using the cooler master R4 on the back of the hard drive and on my cpu cooler with red led, and the blades painted red. Pictures will be posted once I have it all together in a week or so. Taking my time on this one.
Very nice, but you should be able to replace those top 2 exhaust fans with 3 120mm noctuas, no?

The Antec 1200 have a minor temperature?
Thank's
Out of the box with stock fans the Antec 1200 runs a little cooler.

Personally, I think the Antec 1200 is hideously ugly. Couldnt be happier with my 840, adding an intake fan on the bottom really helps.

Well I don't think the 1200 is ugly, it's just too cramped for a full tower, and not as watercooling friendly.

I took a trip to Micro Center to grab my i7 (all I need now is my board)


I looked around and I checked out many of the cases that I had set my eyes on and I can really say that I'm glad my choice was the ATCS 840. Just slightly smaller than the Corsair Obsidian 800D but bigger than everything else. It's so good that there still hasn't been a revision of it...yet lol Unless it seriously isn't that popular

I actually would like a revision of it; if anyone from Cooler Master lurks here, then here's what I'd like changed:
  • Thicker side panels with a scratch-resistant coating over the entirety of the exterior, if such a thing were possible.
  • Anodized black back panel and interior (or maybe... black and red? Black support structure with red drive cages and mobo tray? Hmm... AMD edition for this?).
  • 8-10 expansion slots for eVGA's quad-SLI Classified boards (and others).
  • Metal 5.25" bay covers instead of plastic; if possible, also offer an optional optical drive cover that blends in with the rest of the face, like Soldam's/Alexer's "Bay Leaf".
  • Several 120mm front intake and top exhaust fans instead of big 230mm fans; this gives ultimate flexibility to the end user in customizing airflow.
  • Removable HDD cage frame, like the CM690 II, with another filtered intake under the cage for if the frame is removed, again like the CM 690 II.
  • Separate blue/red colors for the power and HDD LEDs, like the original CM690.
  • Pre-sleeved or black-colored header leads and fan cables (like the Obsidian 800D); also sleeve the included 8-pin EPS extension, since Thermaltake and Corsair already do that.
  • Offer a side panel with fan mounts and/or plexi window; keep a solid panel on the included case.
  • More and better-positioned cable management holes; possibly with rubber linings or even grommets like the 800D.
  • Alter the PSU intake filter so it's on the bottom on the outside, just like the intake mount in front of it. This is the best solution I can think of to the problem of not being able to clean the PSU intake position filter with a fan in the bottom intake mount (I've nearly stripped 2 screw heads removing the S-Flex G to clean mine just twice).
  • Make the pop-up panel wider and integrate the power and reset buttons into it. This would look awesome since everything would be hidden when the ports aren't in use, and by my measurements, no vertical size adjustment to the panel would be required for this to work.
  • Eliminate the empty space at the front with the ATCS 840 logo printing, and expand the space into a 7th (yes, a 7th) 5.25" bay. This (along with more expansion slots) would add height to the chassis, yes, but only ~3-4 inches.
  • No plate cover for the intake fan; instead use a screw-on aluminum mesh panel with a dust filter that blends in with the rest of the front.
  • The inclusion of both "solid" and meshed expansion slot covers for even more airflow options.
  • Make the graphics cooling "box" optional and available for separate purchase; rarely have I ever seen it used.
  • Hidden rivets in the front panel. How they are now interrupts the clean lines of the brushed finish.
  • Cleaner transitions between outer panels; the negative air pressure design of the case draws air in through gaps in the outer panels, gathering dust at the edges of these gaps. This is unsightly and interrupts the focus of possible airflow configurations.
  • Make the USB ports 3.0 capable, and the eSATA port(s) capable of providing its (their) own power as there will be power-over-eSATA 6.0Gbps in the future. EDIT: for the most part it seems the case will be made USB 3.0 capable (via internal headers), so at the very least this one can be half-checked off. EDIT (11/12/10): the following suggestion holds as the USB 3.0 header has been finalized as of the end of August, and it should be possible to do this:
  • Equip the front/top port area with 4 USB ports; 2 2.0, and 2 3.0. If possible/needed, split the 3.0 leads into 2 separate cables (such as what's currently done for the HD Audio/AC97 lead to the audio ports) to allow connection to 2.0 headers for use with 2.0 devices if the customer's motherboard does not have 3.0 headers.
  • Provide black thumb screws for the expansion slots, like the HAF-X.
  • Flatten the bottom sides and bottom front of the case with ventilation at the back with rubber linings as "feet", again like the HAF-X. To allow cleaning the bottom external filters, make (clean) cutouts in the "feet" and make them part of the filter pull-out handles (or better, make the cutout parts the actual filter pull-out handles).
  • More space for wiring behind the motherboard tray.
  • Include at least one 3.5"-2.5" bracket, preferably 2 as SSD RAID configurations are becoming popular.
  • Instead of having logos/emblems on the case, include them as accessories and give users the option of where to put them.
  • A new one I thought of; offer different motherboard trays for purchase at the CM Store, with different colors and cable management hole positions. This would be somewhat unique and great for specialized builds, and not just for the intended case, either.

Whew. That was more than I thought there'd be, but that's pretty much it. Release a successor with these changes, and I might just modify my desk again and get the successor; it would literally be Lian Li's and Corsair's perfect competition. (I have made recent edits in light of confirmation of the features of the HAF-X; with rumor of a new revision/model of ATCS, I'm really hoping these suggestions were considered in the new revision/model.) Another recent edit done after another member said that plans for a production unit based on the prototype shown at COMPUTEX had been scrapped. Not quite sure if I should believe him but for the moment I am. Will make more edits when more news/confirmation comes out. EDIT:

Touched up the post some more. A bit of an update: Cooler Master IS working on a new ATCS but it won't be anything like the prototype shown at COMPUTEX 2010. I was given some details about the case but for now Cooler Master is being VERY tight-lipped about the matter and I cannot share them, plus they could (and likely will) change anything related to what I was told, at any time. All I can offer is that the case won't be available until at LEAST summer 2011; and that's my own guess, nobody else's, based on the information I was provided, and hopefully that guess is wrong and they'll introduce it earlier than that. Once they make public announcements/statements I will edit the first post of the thread with any new information, and will edit the thread title as soon as the new name is released.

Don't forget...support for EEATX motherboard (EVGA's new dual socket board lol) as well as ten expansion slots like the Lian Li P80.

The ATCS 840 already has more than enough room for even the dual-socket monster, just not enough expansion slots. Re-edited.

What would be the best way to cut a hole in the motherboard tray? Specifically, one that looks similar to the 24 pin hole? (the long rounded one in the upper-right of the mobo tray).

I'm trying to brainstorm how to do this and make sure it looks nice. I don't have access to a machine shop but we own just about every standard "consumer" tool out there. I'm just not that great with them :\\
post #890 of 4392
i would use a holesaw to cut 2 round holes, than use a jiggsaw or a dremel to cut the part between those holes.
