Mine was from the last few months and it's cpu cut out is easily that big. Notice also the secondary hold below for cables. I understand the first versions did not have that.

NP. Newegg. If you're looking wait until they have a good combo if you can. Received a free hard drive cage with mine. Resold it to make final price effectively $60 flat

Thinking about picking this case up sometime after Christmas. I have a couple questions though:

1. Does adding one or two blowhole fans on the top cover pretty much alleviate any heat related problems you may have with a powerful graphics card(s)?

2. What's the longest card length that will fit, and is it possible for you to run 2 of the same said longest card? I am moving onto a 6970, and while it looks like one may fit, it seems as though a future crossfire solution may run into the back of a dvd drive.

Also, what do you guys think about adding some slits on the front panel, in front of the exhaust 120mm fan, similar to the slits on the PC-7FN? Would that be a good idea so the heat can leave directly from the front more quickly?

Got some goodies in guy in the big brown truck earlier today.(3 days early too) Did some test fits of some of the parts to see how it would look put together a bit more.

This is the bottom rad. I originally had it sitting in the center but realized it will intefear w/ the I/O of the mobo.

The rad has to be almost right up to the edge of the case to clear the mobo. also you notice that the rad covers one of the feet locations. have to do some more research on how thats going to work w/ my MNPCTech feet.

I think having any sort of rear fan is out at this point. Ill have to wait till i buy fittings to see if i can fit a fan there.

Here is the clearance that i have between the psu and the lower rad. Routing cables is gonna be a challenge.


At this point i took apart the top to test fit the 360 rad. I was also trying to see if i could possibly save the I/O in the stock location. No luck on that one.


This is w/ the rad at the most rearward position. I think i will just center the rad on the top panel to make it look uniform.


The fans I am using are Yate Loon medium speed, red LED. I plugged one into a test psu and its super quiet. They are rated at 70.5cfm. Im not sure at this point if ill need to get the high speed ones to improve cooling or not. But the mediums will not need a fan controller at all. Here one is, pictured w/ the 16mm red dot bulgin switch that i will be using for a reset button.


This is the final pic. layout of both rads w/ fans sitting on them. Sexy.

I got to thinking earlier, I was planning on using a single WD 640AAKS for data storage besides the raid0 SSD's. But my current rig has 2 WD 150gb velociraptors that i will no longer need. I was trying to think of a way to mount those two in raid0 for storage. i just need to find a place to mount them. Ill be running a Black Ice Stealth 360 w/ 120x25mm Yate loon fans at the top and a Black Ice Stealth 240 on the bottom of the case. Im just wondering if anyone has any ideas as of where to mount the 2 Velociraptors w/o restricting airflow? Im going to be using a mATX mobo so there is some room at the top.
Any other ideas will be considered. I can half fit one in the 3.5" bay and the lower 5.25" bay will house the optical drive and SSD's. the top bay is off limits due to the rad and fans.
Or i just had this idea, idk if it will clear the rad and fans at the top.

I currently have the stock fan mounted to the outside of the case. Im going to order a Scythe "SLIP STREAM SLIM" to mount on the inside, hopefully it will clear the rad.


Back to the I/O bay device. I had a silverstone I/O leftover from my htpc build. The problems i see w/ that. Cosmeticly it just doesnt fit the clean look of the case. I think my previous idea of mod'ing the 3.5" bay cover and use the little door looks cleaner.

Also the silverstone I/O has a lot of wires. those would be a pain for cable management. And Who really needs a firewire port on the front.
This is the mess of cables on the back side.

The one i posted earlier has 2 usb 3.0 ports and the audio, thats 3 wires all together.
What a Beautiful Idea.. Man the mother of all invention is working on this Thread. Rep up.
