Thanks for the suggestion, but my bottom compartment is outfitted with a 480 and 240 rad... I'm thinking of cutting the sides (that fixes them onto the 5.25 slots) of the controllers/HUE so that it's just a rectangle PCB.

Then perhaps I can mount them somewhere... maybe where the front intake fans would be as I've got nothing there.

I had the same issue as you, so I "stealthed" my blu ray. And as my fan controller was half the depth of a regular 5.25 drive I just mounted it backwards. So the front of your fan controller faces the inside of the case. As long as its not as deep as the bay you can run your cables up the back of the case, and through the holes of the 5.25 bay. All the blanks stay in place for a clean look, and you get your toys too smile.gif

Hey guys, just a question question (sorry about intruding in your club)

I have the option to buy a 750D for $200, or a 900D for $450.

I will be going with a new steamroller chip (if they ever come out lol) with crossfire (not sure what cards I'll get yet, I might wait for the steamroller chips to see if any other new cards come out by then, or if the 290x's drop in price)

The 750D case I can have a 360mm rad at the top, and a single 240 rad on the front. Is that enough cooling for a max overclocked AMD Steamroller, and a crossfire setup?

I really don't see a benefit to spending over double the cost of the 750D, is there something I'm missing?

I saw the 900D at the store, the things is just massive, like MASSIVE lol. But putting in a custom watercooled loop, I honestly don't think I'll need more than a 360 (for GPU's) and a 240 (For CPU),

This is my planned watercooling loop Image (Click to show)

Will that be enough? What are peoples opinions on the 750D and 900D?
Has enough owned both and can do a comparison?

I all depends on what your doing with your gear to be honest. I chose the 900d because I was going for a complete over the top build. I've put in 2 780ti classys a 4770k and a gtx770 for physx. To be able to overclock these to the max I have 2 480 ut60s in push pull and a 240. I can run my classys for benching at 1.5 volts and my 4770k at 1.45 volts and be within safe temps. While running a more reasonable clock/voltage my temps are great and I still have room for another 240 if I want to add another card. But once you get your gear in your system what are you going to do with it? Slight overclock, or push for everything its got? If your like me and your always pushing for the max, then a little head room is always good. The gear your planning on will run great in a 750 and silent with the rads your looking at, without pushing to hard. But think about it this way. You will have maxed out your cases cooling potential as of day one. If you want to expand to triple xfire or upgrade to new cards that tend to run hot like amd cards tend to do then what?
My buddy after seeing my build went for a more reasonable build in a 750d and now regrets it, while is system is awesome, he has no more room without going external and he's maxed it out. If its not pushing your budget then go big and have room to grow:)

What's the size of that res? I'm waiting for my 750D to arrive and I like the cross-flow you did on the bottom, I assume you have 360mm rads down there?

I was thinking of just having a 360mm top and a 240mm front, but I'm concerned about drive space, itll be CPU(AMD)+GPU+GPU(290x's) would I benefit more from having more rads?

I like the clean look of having them all at the bottom, which was why I was so close to getting the 900D instead, but the price is just a little crazy (750D is $200, 900D is $450) so that mod looks nice. Are you planning to re-window the door, and add a grill for the fans?
post #6916 of 8657
That 900D is seriously overpriced compared to the 750D, I can't recommend the 900D at that price.
post #6917 of 8657
No way in hell I would pay 2x the price of a 750D for a 900D. Worst case scenario, externally mount a radiator or PSU.

Yeah for half the price the 750D is easily the way to go. In no way would you benefit technically from the 900D with an overclocked cpu and 2 gpu's. The 900D is only for extreme overkill.

Yea.. That is one pricey 900D there.. Got mine for $279.. Oh and I only have 2 gpu's and air cooled.. lol.. But, I really like the case.

Yeah definitely not getting the 900D, if it was just a hundred cheaper, i'd probably get it, just because I know it's a case that I could use forever, you know?

I would LOVE the case for $279 lol

Thanks everyone for your opinions, makes the decision to stick with the 750D an easy one.

Now the save for my watercooling parts! Is the Koolance 380A still the king waterblock for AMD?

Edit: Sorry just a quick question, the top mount for the 360 rad, if I have no ROM drive in the tray can I fit a UT60 rad with push pull up there?
