Looks like a tight fit. but a fit none the less. Any reasons why you have the intake/outgoing holes on the right side?

Wish I had the courage to do so. And man we have a lot of stuff in common, I used to have a 5770, we have same power supply, same RAM, same OS, same SSD, and I'm eventually going to get a H50/H70. That case looks clean BTW. Makes me want to rewire mine/clean it.

Just make sure you have plenty of zippies, time, and probably tape as well.
Since my PSU isn't modular, theres a bunch of cables behind the motherboard tray; makes my right side panel scream it wants to pop off so bad.

My fan broke yesterday, I have no idea how.. I'm looking to buy new fans now, anyone have any recommendations as to what fans to put inside? I'm going to replace the side fan, the 2 front fans, and the rear exhaust fan. I would like some fans that move a lot of air.

If you want fans that move a lot of air you are gonna want to remove the grills on the intake fans. If you don't, the fans will be weakened and more noisy.

Cooler master R4's are cheap, decent fans that are pretty powerful and popular.

Tempest? Tempest Evo? Awesome!

Allow me to share a few tips with you.

1: Before installing your hardware, consider removing the meshes on the fans. It will maximize airflow and cut down on noise. Look a little ways back in this thread and you will see how i cut the grills on the front intake fans, which is a great idea.

2: Tape, Zipties, and some patience are your friends. Use the bulge in the back panel to hide the cables you can.

3: If you want to remove the front bezel, don't pull it off. Remove the side panels and use a tool to gently pry it off. The first time I pulled it off I ripped the hard drive LED out of its slot. Do what I said and you will be fine.


Have fun with the build.
