Nice, I might consider this case then... As I usually sit around 25*C as my average for the year.

Whew... just finished transfering hardware to this case.

By far, much much easier to work with than the P180. There are a few flaws though:

1. It doesn't fit a PC&P 750w Silencer properly. You will need to take off some plastic surrounding the power plug to get it to fit. I just left it so it doesn't sit flush with the back panel.

2. The locking mechanism for the 5" bays is useless. It didn't secure my Scythe Kama Ace or my Pioneer dvd rom properly. You have to use screws to secure them.

3. The holes for the fans on the top aren't perfectly aligned. However, since the top panel is bendable, using a bit of force will allign the fans in the end.

4. The 24-pin power cord on the PC&P barely reaches the motherboard. Maybe Corsairs PSU's have longer cables. Not a fault of the case.

5. The BIGGEST flaw of the case - GPU temperatures. I left all three original fans alone, and added 3 yate loon low speeds to the top. Idle GPU temperatures hit 56C, compared to my P180 which was only 50C.

Overall, very good case. Ridiculously huge with ample room to hold all your watercooling gear.

I'm considering this case but I have been reading about the various issues with alignments and other problems that really put me off purchasing this case. I would rather get this than the Cooler Master Cosmos-S I have been planning for a case upgrade (eventually). I'm also not that happy with the market price for such a case coming close to $340 CAD.

Got a new PSU today to go with the case. Fits like a glove...of course.

1. My Silencer fit but it's tight.

2. IMO all those plastic clip mechanisms are junk. I almost always screw them in

3. My fans lined up great on the top panel

4. My 24-pin reaches comfortable using the upper-most hole along the vertical edge of my P6T Deluxe. Try going through to the backside in the small remainder of the hole the PSU chassis partially blocks. Make a straight line for one of the grommets near the motherboard and you should be good to go.

5. Can't comment on this one because I don't have any data for my GPUs in another case.

I am a big Cooler Master fan and have owned a Cosmos S. I assure/guarantee/promise you this Corsair is bringing more options to the table and is built better overall. The only decision that would be in my head is whether or not it's worth the price difference.

Here you go:
I finished setting up my loop last night. To hell with air cooling: I'm getting almost a 10C difference on load versus the Sunbeam CCF. Water FTW

Also included a pic of the PSU issue. The triangular black plastic around the power plug doesn't have enough clearance to sit flush with the back panel.

This case is a hell a lot worth it, don't get me wrong I really like coolermaster cases also but this case is sweet, I got the case for $250 CAD when it first came out, but now there like $290CAD from what I've seen.

Great setup man, also clever idea about that fan install

Thanks. Zip-ties are the best invention possible. Unfortuantely, it still doesn't solve the GPU heat problem. The fan is mounted a bit too high because I need to rest the pump on something.

I ended up switching the rear exhaust into a rear intake. CPU and NB temps dropped, but no change to GPU.

Yeah that is a smart way to install the fan lol

I'm thinking about trying something...my 360 rad up top and the rear fan will intake air, and the bottom fan will exhaust. Also thinking about modding the front by taking the HDD cage out and dremel the front for a fan and that would be exhaust also
