I had the H2, not the greatest case and execution tbh. And the msrp is laughable. I rather go w/ a MM than an XSPC case rolleyes.gif




I fudged up my back plates. Still very workable. just drilled one whole skewed into two of them. I really should get that drill press fixed redface.gif


mcmastercarr.com and their ultra fast shipping came to the rescue with some nice new (and longer screws) for the back plates smile.gif

i am personaly a fan of the mayhem option (i think a trasperent red would go well with this build and transprent colored tubing has always been a pain in my experences)... another option for the fans would be to get pure black fans and mod them for red LEDs... all you would do for this is pop a little hole in the side of teh casing and mount red LEDs there, but since the black will absorb most of the low light it will give off more of an eairy glow then shine red light through out your case smile.gif

love the sound of that glow thing. But since i'm no modder, i'll go with the phobya fan (Phobya G-Silent 14 red led, it has a black frame with red blades and it mostly glows) which has a slightly stronger glow but still only a glow and not red piercing case lighting.

also, how much of the mayhems dye is needed for the average loop? (so it will be a strong cherry-ish red. would it stain?)

lol... fair enought tongue.gif... and im not usre as i havent used Mayhems red... why dont you try asking here... mayhem is very helpful and im sure he could give you a ratio... but beofre that you may just wanna check their sight... i think it on there tbh... and it will also come down to some personal taste.. some may like a lighter red wile other like a bright red... as for the stain, it may minimaly, but it wont be much and it will take a wile... the real one to be careful of for stain is anything pink smile.gif

1) go with black tubing, red led fans.
2) black tubing, red anti-kink coils with red fans (not sure if LED or not)
3) red tubing, no red led fans. (sub choice is going with clear tubing with red dye)
for 2 and 3 considering going with some subtle white lighting, and for all choices the XSPC raystorm cpu block would have red led. (also it would be helpful if anyone could give the recommended and the less likely to cloud / stain tubing)


Go with option 3 and white LED fans or strips. Would look quite awesome but as long as you have understated fittings that don't jump out at you and don't fade into the background. biggrin.gif

~Ceadder smil3dbd4e4c2e742.gif

then it is decided (though black tubing with red coils sounds great but unfortunately couldn't find any good pic). only question is either going Clearflex 60 with red mayhems dye or with Masterkleer red tubing...

and i plan on using the XSPC compression fittings, with the EK angles if needed. (i find them great fittings which look good, inexpensive and fit every build)

I wouldn't spend so much on Phobya kit unless you can get a solid deal for them. Yate Loons are just as good imho, $4 each before shipping and with a can of Universal Advanced Crimon Gloss you can make the blades closer resemble the Red in your system. smile.gif

If you're her e in the states get some Duralene($ .65 a foot) and go with Mayhems dye. The Dye guys can help you get the right kind of dye if I didn't suggest a good one. I don't use dyes an never have so I wouldn't know about that stuff tbh. But if you're gonna do dye may as well go with Duralene from Sidewinder. It still is prone to leaching like everything else but at $.65 a foot it's reasonable until we figure out the best tubing for 24/7 operation with temps of 30c or higher. There are no colored tubing that is not prone to the stuff sad to say. mellowsmiley.gif

XSPC CUBE HAS SHARP KNEES

Nah, I had the H2 and its not that impressive. The design is good and I'll give them that. Over all, it just lacks in execution. The drive bay system is very flimsy. the panels are anodized but easily scratch. The top rad placement is not ideal once you stick in a large 480mm rad. MM no longer gets praise since Case Labs came in. I don't disagree. I think CL is top tier all the way and I hope to own one day smile.gif. But, the XSPC are less superior than a MM imho. And the asking price from XSPC is just ridiculous. Heck, my old DD Double Wide was way better and that was made from acrylic and was the same price.

Its just something out of place for XSPC since they're known for being wallet friendly. And it fails to meet the expectations at their pricing. My 2cents.gif

I've seen many posts from many members disliking a case. I usually am I a fan but this is one I'm not a fan of.

Free, can't complaint about that! You have some serious talent and I know you can turn this thing around and make it bad-a$$ drool-tastic.




Just got some new gear. New psu (CM 1.5kw), new mb (GB Sniper Z77), and some BP D-plugs (black w/ green o-rings biggrin.gif).
