The reason that I went to the 900D was because the case didn't fulfill my needs when it comes to case space, but the 900D is insane.

Honestly the 750D is a awesome case the SSD mounts is cool, everything is awesome go ahead and get it but hey if you want to spend some extra cash and you have it, go for the 900D.

Thanks man. I just ordered the 750D. Although I bought the normal version, not the airflow version. I'd prefer to sacrifice a little airflow and instead add some extra noise dampening, plus the normal version has a better and removable front intake filter. Once the case arrives and I have my initial impressions from transferring my parts over, I'll check back and let you know how it goes and what I think of the case.

You can order the front fascia of the airflow for like 15-30 bucks from corsair themselves

temp of the tube to bend and how much of the tube to heat up.

Yeah I think the hardline tubing looks super slick, but I have heard that it can make removing hardware a pain if you don't run it right. You have a nice set up.

Oh right, that's good then. I'll keep that as an option if I want to change it later on.

thanks man, yours too. As far as changing hardware goes I can see your point but as I run a mono block, I have to basically pull everything just to change the cpu it doesn't really bother me. If I were to ever upgrade I would most likely just bend new tubes. As I said before, the tube is the cheap part. Once you have all the tools and fittings all you need is more tubing. Besides, making changes and doing new things to your build is the fun part.

Agreed that is the fun part of it all, trying new things to make a build look awesome is well awesome.

I built my home server/HTPC in a 250D

Also, no there aren't any fans on this things rad. OC is 4.3Ghz-4.4Ghz @1.27v It idles @ 25-28c and Full load @ 56c hottest core using a 240 rad passively with only an SP120 Performance Edition in the front of the case.

2 questions about the 800d.

I have an old 800d, with a sata2 hotswap board and usb2 front panel

- Does the sata2 hotswap board work also in sata3 mode? There are no chipsets or caps on it, I don't see why it shouldnt work also absolutely fine as a sata3 one, like there is no difference between sata2 and sata3 cables. Did anyone ever try it?

- Where can i buy today the usb3 front panel and the sata3 hotswap board?
