Installed the NF-A14's.






Also mounted my SSD behind the mobo tray and redid my cable management.

Im building an all around rig, Gaming, Rendering, Editing and Modelling. thats why i went with the 2011.
And the reason for the power supply is basicly because i plan to sli in the near future and i want that extra playing room.

guys. So, my question is unanswered. Will Macho or silver arrow fit in fractal 3000 (with one 7870 in it) ?
The specs on official site say 160mm and macho is 162

If you move often you'd probably be interested in the Silverstone SG09/10.

Checkout this build log:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1327623/build-log-silverstone-sg09-micro-atx-sff-powerhouse/0_20
That's the most compact µATX case through so you have to have a compact PSU and so on...

Anything you don't like with the 410 or you're just changing?

It's hard to say. I was researching it the other day and found those links which seem to confirm it:

http://forum.pcformat.pl/Fractal-Design-Core-3000-Macho-V2-t
- I think you should understand this better as I do since it's in Polish

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvRub0i46k8
- this video is mentioned in the previous thread, go to 8:25 they that max. clearance is 165mm

http://www.eteknix.com/reviews/cases/fractal-design-core-3000-case-review/5/
- « The maximum supported CPU cooler height is 160mm according to Fractal Design, but if you are lucky, you may be able to get away with 162mm as an absolute maximum. »

When measuring anyway one always has to take into account the motherboard+CPU clearance:

You can measure and see by yourself, I didn't do it as of now.

If you find something please post back, this interests me. thumb.gif

i don't like MY 410 because i dropped it once and it makes a buzzing noise and it's a bit bent. xD I have my 410 custom looped but i hated how the white mayhem ice dragon turned yellow and my gpu waterblock is such a failure. so there i made this build from my old parts and got a better gpu and thought i may need a new case.smile.gif no hard feelings for nzxt phantom 410 biggrin.gif

sorry for the spam of my case, i just love this thing!
its my first name brand case ive owned and im very impressed with the quality!,

here are a couple showing my case at present, i managed cable management by cutting a hole up top next to my PSU also, as its a non modular unit, i have removed excess cables that are not needed and removed corsairs sleeving, there shrink wrap doesn't allow enough flex in the cables for what i wanted to do, also this allows the cables to be layed flat behind the mobo tray.. (you can now join me to the "bowed rear case door group", it isnt too bad, much easier than my last case!)

also that hard drive tray..

i lined it up at the back of the case and marked out where the screw goes at the bottom, i then drilled out a hole and placed it all in with original thumb screw, at the top i just used a cable tie to hold it all in place, also it gives me a fully covered area where i can hide cables behind. all i need now is longer sata cables so i can route them differently biggrin.gif im very pleased with today's work..





thanks for looking!
