I've seen a picture of it disassembled and the handle is solid metal (steel or alu. i think). Not like the hardened plastic on some cases.

My 5850 just fits in, i have to bend the power connectors right back.

Wish i'd gotten a modular PSU. lol

you can get an NZXT 8pin psu extension cable for less than ten quid, i advise you get one lol, i had to, and i've the same psu as you, so i can tell you that with that particular extension it will make it long enough to reach through the bottom cable management hole, back out the top, around the back of the top fan and into the socket on the motherboard wink.gif

i wish sometimes that power connectors had angled plugs on them, so you dont have to bend the cables out of them in situations like yours lol, you might want to start the cable management from scratch there though methinks tongue.gif

as for the handles, yeah i've seen them first hand when i had to take the front panel off to fix a short i had in the wiring up there, really well made under the hood so to speak smile.gif

I'm going to try tonight. You should see the right panel when i take it off. Molex and SATA cables everywhere.

I'll look into that 8 pin extension though, thanks.

Angle connectors would be awesome! the 24pin could be a lot cleaner then. Now it's an eye sore in my case. When I get my new PSU and sleeve it that will be taken care of tho.biggrin.gif

OR, you could flip that PSU over and have all the room you need. It will be alright unless you have your case sitting on shag carpet. Plus when you have the PSU like you have it, it competes with the CPU and VGA coolers for airflow making them work that much harder.

It was an impulse buy, i didn't even need a new case. I still don't regret it.

I have the perfect mod for you. You could use Rockr's idea where the HDD caddy is shortened and you could also move it to the left, closer to the PSU so you have room for a 240 rad in the front.

Then you could cut out a hole in the CD drive for a 240 rad like Goodink's build.

You can run the CPU power cable out of the cable management hole and then behind the motherboard to hide that and you should flip the PSU the other way up so the fan is facing down, as long as it has a gap underneath the case. And you could also invest in one of Rockr's false floors to hide all of those nasty non-modular cables biggrin.gif

Anyway let us know how you get on and congratulations on your new case and congratulations to everyone else as well on 21k post (almost biggrin.gif)

i tidied all mine and attached them to the back of the mobo tray with cable ties so they dont hang all over the place lol, my issue is TOO MANY spare power cables, so i can see why you wished you'd gone modular, because so do i lol, but that extension will see you through, its all sleeved and matches the 750TX sleeving pretty well too smile.gif

not just for that cable lol, but for stuff like the hdd's too, would make them run a little more flush with the right side panel lol

i'm going to do this myself sometime very soon, as you already know my machine sits on a thick glass table, so underneath clearance is top notch! when i first got my case i did ask corsair if it was fine to mount it fan facing up, and i can quote them on saying its fine either way around in my case lol, so if it decides to break down i can still rma it smile.gif

Ditto on the PSU flip. When I last cleaned, I noticed a lot of dust gets in the PSU that way:eek: I'm going to flip mine too.
