Hi there!

Seen so many nice cases here and decided to do one.
Here's my build...

So I just wanted to follow in reference to the drilling of fillport holes on a colzero 900d Midplate. As a quick recap, the issue is how to drill through the Midplate's 3mm Plexi in order to create holes with a diameter of 1" for pass through fittings.

I had no issues crating the holes, and I followed a little of everyone's advice. I used a dremel first to create a pilot hole, then I used a step bit on to bore out a 7/8" hole (plywood board placed under the Plexi with a hole cut out at the place I intended to drill). I then went back to the dremel, and used a sanding wheel to etch out the remaining 1/8", while smoothing and evening the whole made by the step bit. The drill speed 1100 S Claiborne Avenuewas slow and without too much force, and I used masking tape to protect the board. Oh and I used spring clamps to hold the Plexi in place.

anyone else having problem with the bottom magnetic dustfilter on the 900D, mine wont keep in place after 3 months.

Mine had a serious crease/wrinkle in it when new. I laid it on the workbench and put a heavy object on it to attempt to straighten the wrinkle. It's better, but still does not lay flat against the door.

I'll be looking for an aftermarket filter, so if anyone has a source, please post.

Same here, and I have to make sure it doesn't touch the intake fans because sometimes it does.

I've got some 3M magnet tape from MODDIY, they're a bit thicker and wider than what's on the 900D, but at some point I'll order a roll of filter material and DIY.

FYI it was super easy to cut filter material with scissors and magnet tape it onto the rear mesh for a cheap and effective dust cover. I know positive air pressure prevents dust from entering the mesh but my 900D is beside a window and stuff from trees float inside.

You guys know that in the default shipping position, it is placed in reverse? Try switching it around and see. I got this info from one of the reviewers and since I reversed it, it has been great.

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.


Thank you for the response! Your machine actually looks really good, not just in the 900d, but overall. You should be proud of that machine. I got all the parts last week, and ended up going with the 750d Because The 900d would actually be too big for my desk. Oh well, I love the 750d. But, you are right, I was overclocking my R9 280x testing stability, and it would throttle at fairly low clocks so i had to keep it at a lower clock. I'm thinking of getting an NZXT kraken GPU bracket though. Anyway, thank you for the response, I appreciate it.

I'm thinking of going from the 550D to the 750D. Normally that's a bad move as it will be a decrease in cooling capacity (no side door mounts) and probably less accessible (no button release doors) but I'm getting sick of this lousy explodes open front door. Fallen off twice, needed replaced from the damage. A plus would be it might give me another shot at my old plan to put my drives in the 5.25 bay and get a straight shot on the airflow. To that end I was wondering if anyone can comment on the paint? Is it still crap? I wanted to take out the drive cages on the 550D and do that but the paint was so bad removing the drives made huge gouges. So I had to leave them in to cover up that mess. Sandpaper finish + the high vertical pressure they were under will do that. So if the paint isn't any better I really need to know before I blow more money on a Corsair case.
