I truly gave it some thought, but I had to just do what I wanted... and I want something even more small form factor. Gonna sell the case.
The important thing is that you gave it a shot, its a great case for those who want it, to each his own

But it's upto you, I'm just sayin'

nice case. I've been through alot of cases, trust me haha and this one was the best out off all of the, I don't know why but I just like how NZXT listened to consumers. There's alot of things in this case that I've always been suggesting.

Oh, I know it's a good case, but definitely not what I'm looking for. I need something smaller and more compact. Great case, great company, just not what I want. I'll still stick around though!!

Edit:

If you want, you can watch my build log and read about it here:

Would much appreciate suggestions.

Has anyone managed to fit one of the new AMD HD6900 cards into a Vulcan with an H50?

I've got a HD4550 at the moment and I'm getting a nice big new monitor for Christmas () and I want to upgrade the graphics so its better at higher resolutions.

You could. But you'd have to start modding

I was going to get a 5870 into my Vulcan whilst having a H50 and the only way I would of been able to get it to fit was to cut into the bottom of the 3.5" bays. Just like cut to holes big enough for the tubes to fit into.

After watching this youtube review (http://tinyurl.com/38zhafg) and seeing him struggle with that Megahalem (which is only 160mm tall) on a gene III I don't think a 165mm tall V6GT will fit stock. However, with the cooler of the V6GT being skinner it's possible that you can just remove one of the fans and mount it with the remaining bottom fan parallel to the ground.

I would recommend for people to get the Thermolab BADA for this case as it should fit with the side fan on and off and probably in any orientation. It's on sale for ~$25 shipped from heatsinkfactory and has a good review from frostytech.

Note: I did some measurements and it looks like the tallest heatsink that you can fit in the case when the heatsink is under that horizontal support bar thing is about 145mm. Whether your motherboard has a socket low enough where that isn't a problem varies on motherboard.

The case begs to be watercooled
