The front fan however was a trickier deal, I bought a Cooler Master Megaflow since everyone said that's one of the best 200mm fans available. But where I live they only come in blue/red LED's, so I was in for a little modding. So I purchased some white LED's and black paint.

The old LED's had to go.


And then I painted the frame black, soldered and inserted my new, fresh white LED's smile.gif

The result (camera strap photobomb)

Very nice, man!

I think I might disconnect it. I barely use the front USB at all, TBH.

I bought the ASRock Extreme 4, because at the time it was the cheapest LGA 2011 board. I kind of wish I went with quality, instead. My boards audio output doesn't work; something most people will RMA it for, or exchange, but I use Logitech G930 headset 100% of the time, so no biggie for me.

Think my clearance issue is mobo related; ie, the RAM is positioned higher up, so maybe another board fro mAsus or Gigabyte will be positioned lower making a push/pull capable in this 650D. I really think this is the best looking case out there.

I guess I could still do push/pull, but have the top fans mounted on outside of case obtruding out, like someone suggested. I'd like to have it inside if I could, though.

That link to those cathodes, they are U/V. You mentioned white lighting, so are you doing U/V lighting in your case as well?

Yes, very well done, I might steal the idea of the black frame, sine I am going with blue LEDS anyway, I dont need to do the white LED part, but if I did, I know who to consult;) Well done!smile.gif

Yeah, I thought about mounting on top of the case as well but 2 issues: 1, as we know the 650d top grill is part of the case and I would have to cut that off, I am not really keen about doing that, 2. even if I were to mod it like that, for me personally, I don't like the fact the top fans would be protruding out of the case.

And yes, clearance is definitely the issue for me for an internal push/pull, that heat sync at the top with Z77 on it is what is preventing me from doing it.

I am not opposed to getting another motherboard later on. I have had some issues with this one, not to mention AsRock support is not very good, at least for my experience.

I accidently posted the wrong link, here is the correct one:
akasa white cathodes

And no, no U/V lightning, might try it some day when I have more white stuff in the case.
Steal ahead dude smile.gif just dont forget to prepare the frame first so the paint sticks tongue.gif

Cool, I think I might just do that smile.gif

Yeah I would love to do a black/blue U/V lighting theme, but I don't feel confident enough to cut off my psu connectors to sleeve my cables. I guess I could get the black blue set that Seasonic sells but those are pricey. I would really like to light up my H100i tubes but don't think UV is an option there...

Does anyone here have an Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 with the 550D case? The mobo is slightly smaller than most and I'm just wondering how it fits in the case, how cabling is, etc.

The mobo uses the standard ATX mounting points so it'll fit fine thumb.gif

Does any one know why the 800D is out of stock everywhere? Are they replacing it? I'm ready to hit the buy button right now but the only places that have it in stock are shady. Also, I don't want to order from some shady place and get a Rev.1 model without the improvements.

Thanks!
