Won't be moving it around much and my guess is heavy means good build quality.

Pretty much what I'm going for. I won't be needing CD/DVD/Blu Ray drives so no need to open the door. It does worry me a tiny bit that temperatures will be high, but my sistem isn't even overclocked at the moment so I guess heat isn't an issue.

The only thing I can think of that kinda bugged me with the case, was the openings of the optical bays for the plastic front of the case. I actually had to file down the small plastic elevations between the openings so that my fan controller could fit through it. Other than that small inconvenience, it's the best case I've ever owned.

And as others have said, it is pretty heavy.

Yea I actually swapped out my H100i with the Megahalem and didn't really notice any difference.

I just noticed that you're the one with the green "sniper" pc. Your build actually inspired me to make my pc the way it is lol.

So, thinking about future upgrades already and I haven't even finished putting together my first water loop....rolleyes.gif

If I were to remove the ODD bays to make room for a 360 rad up top in my Arc Midi R2, what would be the best way to control the 6 fans that won't fit on my motherboard?

What fans are you planning on using?
