Polished or as he describes it, optically clear. There's a youtube vid about that, not installed in the case though.

Looks sweet! I want one for mine but would need a cut out for a fan! Cant find anyone who is able to do one with the cut out for a reasonable price to the UK!

If that guy can make one with a 140 fan mount on the side I'll be all over it!

I think he does fan mounts, not sure though. Thought I read something in the comments of his youtube channel about 15$ extra per hole he has to drill.

I also agree the days of one single graphics card doing what you want.. MAX SETTING is almost gone, but don't rule out some of the dual GPU cards like the GTX690 which is just two GTX680 on one board, this is rather a sweet card and when ever that GTX700 comes out I will just buy a second GTX690 and have quad and wait for the GTX800 series, what I am trying to get at.. Dont wait for that magical graphics card to appear.. buy what is available now and enjoy your gaming time otherwise you will always be waiting.

Totally agree. Waiting for a next generation doesn't make sense unless the release is imminent, but then you also have to consider price/performance, which in turn means waiting for reviews and benchmarks.

Just get what you need. Like DD said, SLIing to tide you over a generation is really viable and cost effective these days.

Hmm i wonder what he means by that. Sure 15$ per fan hole isn't too bad but if he means 15$ per hole including screw holes it stacks up quite fast biggrin.gif

I got a quote from him for $30 for 2 fan holes which I believe covers screw holes. Those are easier to do than the 120mm or 140mm holes.

Have to disagree with that statement. Two years ago I installed my HD6970/6950(6970 flashed) in my PC. Sure, it works great and everything, but a year later a guy in this thread installed the newest high end nVidia card in his system, and on the Heaven benchmark his single card outperformed my two cards with the same settings.

Consider also that in many cases CFX won't even work, or will actually degrade performance. The constant hunt for drivers to make the cards perform better, and the occasions when the manufacturer (ATI in this case) releases drivers that are worse than the previous ones, or break a game you play a lot, or artificially adjust the drivers just to perform better in benchmarks.

I think if you get the newest high end card you're getting a great card. Maybe in a couple of years you may want to install a second one, but I think you would get the equivalent performance by just replacing it with the newest high end card again.

Zero flaws is imposible. Even for corsair. My door closes just fine but if you look at where the plastic parts meet they don't line up exactly. It's hardly visible but its there. Check youre case out. Take a pic. Its so small a variation sometimes you probably missed it.

Lol. Well, what can I say? Everything fit in our cases (same with my roommate's 650D) even if the dimensions were not "perfect". I did purchase an optional windowed side panel, and in that particular panel one of the latches didn't work very well, but I just replaced it with a latch off of my original panel and now it works perfectly. That's the only complaint I had with mine. Nothing was misaligned enough to cause any issues, everything fit. Same with my buddies, no complaints at all. I'm sorry if some people got bad cases, but that's not the case (so to speak) with all of them. Perhaps something during manufacturing has been becoming misaligned more and more over the years this case has been on the market?

For sure, if I bought this case and I had a problem closing the side panel because of that particular issue, I would return it. If the next one had the same problem, I would take it back again and purchase a different case. I would never purchase a case for $169 (which is what it cost when I bought it) and keep it if it had a fault like that.

Here's a picture of mine:



As you can see, it's only about a millimeter or less off. It has no effect on how the panel fits. It certainly does not hit the panel like in the pictures provided by CTV. I have two panels for that side and they both fit the same.

I did that with a hole cutter attachment on a drill. It came out perfectly round, but I didn't polish it. I was surprised at how well it turned out. Sorry I don't have a better picture without the dust cover. That was for an old PC case upgraded to hold an H50. I still have it as a "guest computer":

You have to consider cost too, though. These days a 680 costs, what, 400 at best? The top cards on release cost between 400-600, yeah? Assuming you get one of those around release for let's say 400, and then you got the equivalent from the next gen at 400 too, that's 800 bucks. I got my 660 Ti for 230. Down the line I could easily get it again for around that price or even less when the next gen comes out, having spent less than 500. And 2 660 Tis would certainly overpower a single 680, and probably match or come close to the next gen top card.

But yeah, I'm talking all nvidia here as I don't have any experience with AMD. As far as I know, there aren't really much problems with their cards in SLI, if at all, but that could just be a false impression.
