Well, 140mm Noctua fan I ordered doesn't fit the rear exhaust port. I'm going to have to mount it from the outside, or put a 120 in the rear, and move the 140 elsewhere, even though I'm not really sure where.

I'll have to do some tinkering with it a bit more and draft up the best possible airflow.


p.s. I realllllllllly love the case. Noise level with just the stock fans are so much quieter than any case I ever owned (they were all $50 or less mid cases)

Why didn't the 140mm Noctua fit? Was it the placement of the screw holes or the size?

It turns out the rear fan mount casing was dented, and didn't allow me to put anything other than a 120mm fan.
I popped the dent out, and now P14 fits perfectly. A bit snug as well. No chance or moving, really.

Replaced all the stock fans with Noctua fans and the rig is running very quiet and distraction-free.

Im thinking of grabbing a 550D to cut down on the noise from my HAF XB.

Will a 2x120mm rad fit in the front of the case, if the bottom 5.25 bay area is cut? I dont have HDDs, just SSDs, and dont need a disk drive, so just a dual bay res/pump. Want to get a XSPC RX240 with push/pull. With the tubbing on the bottom, it looks like it should fit from pictures, but want to make sure before ordering.

Hello!

I'm looking at buying an 800D soon and I know that the new one will be coming out very soon... but $350 for the new one is too much for me. So I will still be getting the 800D and was wondering if you guys think that it will go lower in price by the time that the new one comes out?

Right now it's at it's 2nd lowest price since it's been released. $244... Any chance it might go lower?

It might go down a little bit, but I doubt it will go any lower than $200, if it even goes that low. If you aren't going to use the hotswap bays regularly, swaping in and out hdds, you might try looking for a 700D. It's the exact same case minus the hotswap bays and window. When I bought my 700D, it was on sale at Microcenter for something like $180, after mail in rebate, and came with the 800D windowed side panel for $0.01

I've looked around for the 700D and have found no place that sells them. frown.gif

I think I might just pull the trigger... will do a mini upgrade to my WC set up in the process also. So yea. smile.gif
