Can't win some times.
nar he has it the other way around. the clear fan is a shroud. ( no fan in it ) the one on the rad is a fan. if was the other way around. he should get better temps. but yeah anyways still nice setup

Finally got most of this sucka complete. I will post more pics when I have it all in. But here you go for your viewing pleasure. The only wires showing are the pci-e and they will be hidden when the GPU gets installed! The front 5.25" drive thing is an ICY DOCK RAID Cage with 4x 500gb Scorpio Blacks in RAID 0, and a Mushkin 60gb SSD.

On a side note... finding a way to stuff the cables behind the mobo was tough... anyone else find it to be a tight and kinda scary squeeze?

Dunkler, What are your full system specs going to be?

I am building an i7-920, RIII Gene, H50 rig with 470 SLI. Trying to figure out how to squeeze it all in. I get the mobo and cards tomorrow.

Honestly all of the stuff fits pretty tightly. I will also be running an H50, but only a single GTX480 for the time being. As far as making it all fit... the hardest part is the routing the cables in the back panel behind the mobo tray. I have completely filled my sata ports with the exception of the sata 6 ports. You can get it all to squeeze in behind the mobo tray but it is tough feels like you are going to break something. I even did a little bit of behind the tray management but not much. The thing I can suggest to you is this: run your power switch cord, front panel audio and reset cord all directly underneath the motherboard itself. Run your 8 pin CPU power behind the motherboard and tuck it in the top back corner with just enough slack to bend it around to plug in. With the sata cables you need to zip tie them all together as flat as possible and run them down the center back part of the mobo tray then out the bottom with just their connectors peaking out to connect to the mobo.

Does any of that help?

Nice system you have thar. Very jealous of the motherboard

And yes. All my cables are routed behind my mobo tray but with some force I got the side panel to go on

I added you to the club

Cheers.

Thanks man! I was so worried about the amount of force I had to apply while putting the side panel on. Eventually if worked out fine, but it had me worried there for a minute.

Yes it is tight back there, but would be impossible without the bulge in the side panel.

I also stuff a lot of cables in the notch below the 5.25 drive cage, next to the 3.5 cage.

And tie everything down so it stays there. That's life with a small case. It's always a tight squeeze.

Oh, and I love your raid cage. One of these days I would like to get one and fill it with SSDs.
