Just finished my first W/C build. Still got some work to do as far as cables go, and a few other things, but I'll post more pictures later when I'm actually done with this one. I'm impressed with how quit this thing is, and I'm most impressed with the fact that there were no leaks on the first startup.

So im finally picking up a 900D this week (i hope, but looking good) and im wondering if a Alphacool XT45 480 bottom in push/pull would fit with a Alphacool Monsta 240 on the other bottom side in just pull?

Hello all! I am new to this thread. I wanted to get your guys' opinion. I really want a 900d for my newest build, but i'm not planning on doing any custom liquid cooling. Will a standard ATX build with an H100i leave too much empty space in a 900d? I could get a 750d, but i want the 900d for it's massive size and appearance. What do you think? Here's the build *PSU and SSD/HDD are not on the list because i already have a few* http://pcpartpicker.com/user/GuestVeea/saved/42SQ

I went with a 900D and h100i and two gpu's. No watercooling for me. I have seen my Windforce GTX 780's SLI drop temps from my old Air 540. The top GPU doesn't go above 75C @60% fan speed, where my old case would hit 80C and throttle my card slightly from 1150 Boost to 1050 Boost. For myself personally I didn't want the 750D and the 900D fits the bill. I like the fit and finish and could care less about the weight. I mean if a 47lb case is an issue.. You really need to start pumping some iron! Lol. I got mine for $279AR. For me it wasn't about the cost but the look I was going for and keeping my non-referenced gpu's cool.

Looks really good. For those style coolers, the 900D is actually a great choice.

Looks great and I really like how clean it looks. I was curious how well 780's run on air in this case and that's a big improvement over the Air 540.
I got my 900D for $289AR in February. Still working in tidying up my build but slowly getting there.

When I first switched to the 900D from the 600T, it looked so empty. The case played games with my head, making me think there was infinite space. Now, I think it's too small. :-p

Hey George i've heard USA got some problems on getting 250d in stock. Do corsair plan on making some new big batch of them?
post #6930 of 8657
That's pretty much how I would have filled out the 450D. Great use of space, George!
