well to be quite honest I plan to use 10 HDD's and one SSD o.O Cable Management is already a nightmare with the lengths that are currently in place, so resizing the cables is absolutely required. I will be using the following bays:

For (4)1TB Drives
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817998143

For (4)500GB/128GB SSD drives
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817998144

PCI Sata Controller Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816132026

I will have to mod the bays together, likely with rivets. One will fit the bottom 5.25 bay while the other will be facing the mesh door.

Why not use both 5.25 bays? Im already using the top bay for my fan controller, and will not part with it as I need it for the 360/120 Radiator cooling as I will finally have my 1650 yate's tomorrow biggrin.gif

I plan to use an Asus External Drive and somehow attach it to the back case door, I was thinking super glue as an easy solution, but then I would never be able to get it off, and I may want to repaint in the future. I will be using this drive to exact:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135236

I will also be expanding my loop tremendously in ths ame break down lol.

nateman_doo of the EVGA forums has crafted a MOBO waterblock as anyone with my board will know the NB gets ridiculously hot.

I will be grabbing another 480 for SLI and waterblocks for both cards.

Also grabbing another 240 rad to include in the loop as well.

Also since a friend on a TS3 server is sending me some cat5e cable, I can get off this crappy wireless card and get something for the pci-e x1 slot, we'll see what happens though

if anyone has suggestions I would love to hear them lol, this will be a challenge to say the least, but thats what makes mATX so much fun biggrin.gif

All this will be happening in July, so for now its just planning and getting measurements and supplies here and there.

EDIT: Just found a good raid card for the pci-e x1 slot, looks promising biggrin.gif

i think they have 8 phase power BUT one of the pics show a plug in 4 of the holes of the 8 pin connector

both at 16x 16x i think so true sli/crossfire

i really want that asus

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

Maybe I should work for NZXT's design department and show them what us "enthusiasts" actually need
edit: if you need some pictures to understand. Hope these help lol.

PixelFreakz: That setup is sweet with the radiator on the bottom of the case like that. Do you happen to have any pics of what you did you allow air to pass through the bottom of the case in that area? I am thinking about going that route now that I have seen it so nicely executed.

So a 120mm Rad in the back of the case would not work with this?
(like an H50 or H60)
I think someone said that wouldnt work

It would most likely be too wide. (I have one of those adapters, too - used it with a MyOpenPC Dragon Bench) You're better off mounting the radiator in the front 120mm fan bay (H50)

Yeah, looking at the back mount right now it looks like something mouted ontop of that would probably conflict with either the motherboard I/O's, the LED button, or the edge where you slide the panel back onto.

the LED button was removed from my case... Do Not Want..
But I will have to do some measurements... I am thinking about putting a 92mm fan as a pull against the case... the adapter then the actual radiator and fan as a push pull set up...

I will do the measurements and do the experiment... if it fails someone here will get a good deal on an H60

and the radiator hoses will be ok length-wise since it has to go OVER the graphics card because the graphics card goes to under the 3.5" bays... right?
