I'm thinking about grabbing an 800D but can someone tell me if the cover over the I/O ports can be removed easily?

Haven't tried it but it looks like you can pull it off with a bit of effort. Its a simple design. Why remove it though? I keep mine open all the time

If I buy the case I'd want that door opened all the time as well and I'd like the look of it better with the door off

are you thinking about going to water cooling? i would not recommend the 800D if you are going to try and air cool it.

Water cooling still needs good airflow to be effective so you can't really say that. With enough fans in the right places this case looks like it has great air flow

i can tell you with experience that air cooling an 800D is a waste of your money. not going to argue it. there are better cases for air cooling. yes water cooling does need good airflow, but not nearly as much as trying to cool efficiently with only air.

pm me if you want links to help you out, but i still would not recommend it.

Not totally. Sure there are much, much better cases out there, but for a fairly high end PC, it still works great. I have:

Core i7 920 D0 @ 4ghz (1.27v)
TRUE Black
6gb RAM
GTX 570 SC
Xonar Essence
Corsair 800D

It keeps everything cool. CPU idles at 37c, 68c under load. GPU idles at 39c, load at 65c. So, yes not the best in the world, but I would say it works fine. It's a great looking case and if you like the aesthetics, it's worth a bash. Also leaves the option for WC later.
