I had quiet a hard time getting the motherboard in!! The ATX standoffs and the UD4P just didn't quiet line up... It took 2 hours of finger killing pain to get it in; I've never had this trouble before... In now though, and looking good!

I can't get an Intel SSD in a hot swap bay either; the screws the case comes with are too big! I think I'm just going to rest it in the bottom 5.25" bay anyways, so I have a HD hit swap bay open for easy backups...

really? I found this case very, very well laid out, everything went in so easy for me... I had everything set up in an hour. I'm really pleased with this case.



the only thing thats I'm not happy with is the pump placement... right now it's sitting a little sideways.. If I removed that fan it might stand up straight but I don't want to do that. I'll figure it out.

Just finished up building my rig yesterday and can finally say its done except for a couple of things here and there. One thing that got me was how damn big this case is especially compared to my previous case, which was a cosmos.

Yeah I cut out the bottom hdd cage and also sawed out the bottom piece so the fans could get air from outside the case.

Have you noticed that the divider between the motherboard and power supply is saggling since you cut the support (hard drive case)

Some guy corrected it like this (you probably have seen this build log) and add a piece of black metal to support the part

PS, was it hard to cut these things?

Just finished putting my computer back together in this... it is heavy! But that doesn't matter... What does matter is that it's loud! Really loud! I think I need to replace some fans...

That's a Radiator. water flows through it and is cooled by the fans.

Why do I not see other water cooler pics like this? Is this a kinda cheap/mod method of cooling your water?
