I was just going to send it to MNPCTech and have them do it. I don't have the steadiest hand and want it to look like the 800D window, but not show the bottom chamber.

Here she is, swapped everything over from an ATCS 840 yesterday. Been liking the look of the white, so I went with it.





I was able to get the bottom hard drive cage out with a pair of hefty tin snips and flathead screwdriver, using the snips as a hammer and basically just knocking the rivets off, didn't take much at all. Actually think it would take less time doing it that way than with a dremel or whatever. Still need to cut out the bottom a little for some more ventilation, and add a support bracket for the divider due to some sag, but that's going to have to wait. Still have awesome temps, couldn't be happier with this case

I just bought one of these giant suckers Can't wait to start building it

*Glares at local WC'ing suppliers for taking so long with my new tubing...*

After i took it out to photo it, i wrapped it all back up, slipped it back in the big ass box and hid it behind the lounge so it won't get hurt



Can i join the club please (I'll PM the man soon)

Hey guys

Ill be joining in with the 800D fun soon but I wanted to ask a couple of questions about fans in this case. Specifically in the bottom cooling zone where the PSU is mounted.

Can you mount a fan on the bottom of the case to suck air in directly from underneath to aid the fan that is sitting under the partition? If so what size can you use?

140mm and 120mm would be fine, although the grill wouldn't allow you to screw down the fan.

What size tubing is that? I switched to white 1/2 yesterday, it almost looks too big, maybe its just me.

Ahh right I see. I did wonder and couldn't find any info on the problem anywhere. I suppose I could mount it some other way to stop it moving.

Yes you can add a fan there, the best fit is for 120mm. I just use those plastic machine screws with washers and nut. Works great.
