Did removing the bay make the case less sturdy? I just don’t want it to be wobbly if I remove it.
I've done this already actually. I removed the large bay to install the small one to it. It did not make the case less sturdy although I didnt have any parts installed at the time. Just do not put any weight on it until you re install the drive bay.

Couldn't be more stoked! Add me to the list because my parts are OTW!!

Chassis: NZXT Phantom White
CPU: Phenom II x6 1090t, Corsair H50 with Coolermaster 69CFM fans (push/pull)
RAM: G.Skill Sniper, 8gb 1600mhz
VGA: 2x HD6950 Directcu II in CFX
SSD: Intel X25m 80gb
Motherboard: MSI 890FXA-GD70
Custom single braid sleeved cables!

All other parts are already owned i.e. PSU (Rosewill 950W), LITE-ON BD Burner.

I'll post pics and build log when it all arrives!

EDIT: I know the Vid cards don't unlock, but overclock like a mother + quieter + cooler = WIN, not to mention same speed as HD6990 when not overclocked

Well I ordered my NZXT 1000 watt power supply and as I was getting ready to order at swiftech mcr360 rad and some slim fans I got a alert from Newegg. The ASUS Maxiums IV Extream is in stock limit one per customer and I had to order that !

So I will have to wait till my next check to order the rad and fans along with some mudermod white sleeving!

Why upgrade?

The way I set it it's pulling the hot air up with the assistant of the giant 200mm fan right above it, I'd rather have the heat naturally rise up than trying to push it down

Anyone test various H70 placements and figure out what works the best? I have seen them placed in the top, back, and against the drive cage in the front.

Just wonder if anyone had thoughts on the different ones.
