Updated with a shot of the h100 attached. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Thanks for posting pics of the H100 in the R4. Very helpful. I was thinking about going for the XSPC Raystorm but knew I would probably be too lazy to clean the loop on a regular basis so the H100 would be perfect. How tight of a fit was it to get the heatsink to reach your CPU?

Reached easily with the block facing the way it is in the picture. Will probably fit better with your board since the CPU looks like it's place a little further forward than on the Gene. You do want to put the ram in first tho since the hoses stretch across that area and get in the way when installing.

About halfway done with my R4 build. I must say, this is without a doubt the case to beat in the $100 price range. Everything from the voltage selector for fans to the brilliantly cushioned PSU mounting system has me completely in awe with the attention to detail.

Will post pics tonight!

I want to get custom cables also but will they plug in straight into my PSU? I have an AX650 and I know corsair sells their own cables but if I buy them from bitfenix or somewhere else will I be able to use them?

looking fine.. hey an FYI, you can snake the front panel leads behind the motherboard and reattach so
you dont have them just there from the PSU grommet kinda out of place not being sleeved. they'd be
stealth from under the mobo.

currently no one sell the replacement cables other than corsair. you can order online
some custom cables from asia that would be custom (choose from 8 or 10 colors),
but i hadn't used them before. i sleeve my own...
all the other cable companies sell extensions that still use your ax cables from the PSU.
TTL got from bitfenix a demo set to review and gauge interest. said only set in the
world at this time.

This is the part where I start crying for not buying a modular power supply:drool:

Could this be done on a non-modular with sleeving kits? I'm not entirely sure I even know what a sleeving Kit is.

Thanks heaps!
Yes it can be done but requires a bit more effort Plus a voided warranty if you need to open up the unit redface.gif
