I'm leaning now on pushing the psu back w/ the Lian Li psu extender to squeeze in the 360 at the bottom.

Don't care for that look myself, but that's personal preference of course! Same applies to external rads and such... I like it to all fit 'in the box' Can't wait to see what you do though, should be a great build!

After looking over various reviews that all came to the conclusion of this: Airflow is terrible in this case.
I figured it wouldn't be the greatest since there's not any front intakes but how bad is the airflow?
post #2794 of 8654
if your main path is to air cool your cpu and gpu, then reconsider, if you are going to water cool, this is a great case to do so.
post #2795 of 8654
The 7/800D is not a air cooling case, I wouldn't ever air cool it, if you don't want to do water cooling I would get different case
post #2796 of 8654
For air, 700/800D should be your last choice...The 600T would be a much better air cooler.

You'd have 2 intakes and 3 exhausts...that's with the rear fan as an intake, and honestly, the bottom fan isn't the best intake to begin with.

(unless you pick up a lian-li dual bay cooling fan and mod the side panel with an intake, run away!)

I modded the side panel to hold an old 200mm Antec I had laying around and it dropped temps 10C in the case and 5C in my WC loop... Having said that, I use pretty directed airflow, so running with the door off didn't help me.
