i believe the corsair hoses that go straight to the cpu go under the bay and above the top of the vcard from the pictures i see in this thread.

the eco looks even worse.....the corsair one of the lines looks like it could go on the outside of the vcard (like in between the vcard and sidepanel) and then to the cpu but the line that is furthest away from the side panel where the 200mm fan goes dont look like it can do that.

i was thinking i might have to remove the 3.5" bay to fit the lines in

Oh trust me. That will fit easily. I have 4 in my raid bay in one 5.25" bay. 6 is possible. Good luck with the cable management though TheReciever. That is my one gripe about this case. Other than that... It's perfecto!

I had issues with cable management as well.

I had to actually zip tie my H50 hoses down so that they didn't bang into the door fan. Also, huge snarl up where I moved the two hard drives. Literally no other way to run the cables if you don't use the bottom hdd cage.

What would be great in the Vulcan (2) if one does ever come along some day would be the option to have the HDD racks moved slightly to the left. (In Robiliar's above pictures it would be between the H50, PSU and below the GPU). So that would could still use a front-mounting radiator as well as keep our 3.25 bay's clear. It would also tidy many cases because of the power/sata cables on everyones HD's making their insides look less pretty frown.gif

It would be great in the Vulcan 2 if they added a 120mm fan slot on the bottom, and raised the two 120mm slots so that you could actually have room between the 8 pin cpu connector and the top fans so you could possibly run an internal 240 rad. This would give the option to top mount the H50/H60/H70. That would give enough height to fit another 3.5" bay or two for 3.5hdds and just have them as internal bays. The purpose of the 120 bottom mount would be for H50 rad or 2x120mm Coolit Omni/Asetek gpu rads for high end GPU cooling. They could also just serve as extra airflow for the GPU's. Make the case alittle longer so it keeps its squarish side shape and so cable management isnt soo tight between 120 rads and the psu, allowing for longer better quality PSU's like 1200 watt length. Adding length would help their sleeved psu cable sales as well. Only downside is it will increase in size limiting portability, but if you want greater portability, go with the original vulcan. Greater size means more room to hide cables though. Just my 2cents.gifthumb.gif

Maybe I should work for NZXT's design department and show them what us "enthusiasts" actually need tongue.gif
edit: if you need some pictures to understand. Hope these help lol.199827d1299990683-official-nzxt-vulcan-owners-club-p3120176.jpg

Hey guys. I thought I'd help out a bit with anyone looking to run an AMD rig in a Vulcan and do crossfire.


The MSI 890GXM-G65 is a good motherboard, but it only has four phase power. That means low-voltage overclocks, and stay away from 6-core processors and overclocking. There are plenty of reports of 6 cores completely killing the board even with no overclock.

There are one or two other motherboards around that support x8/x8 crossfire, but I have only seen them for sale in America. There was one DFI board. I do not know how many power phases they have, but for a six core processor, you'll generally want 8+2, or more power phases. I don't think I've seen a mATX AMD motherboard with that, so I just stuck to a quad core that I'm running at a very low voltage overclock.
