YAY!!! There's life in this thread!!! Will have build photos after returning from vacation around Feb 17th. No fancy sleeving or paint though. Just avionics-grade cable routing and an all-around clean build.

Just say NO! To ugly rubber case feet... gunner2.gif

I requisitioned some parts from my current case and I'll be darned if they don't fit and look kinda nice... All it's gonna take is 4 small holes and the PCA05 gets fancy bent-aluminum landing gear. The best part being that height above desk will be easily adjusted via rubber washers and longer screws, so perhaps my bottom 140mm hole can be an intake after all...

Oh, and yeah, the motherboard cutout partially covers a portion of my Gigabyte z77UD5's backplate; so there'll be a bit of metal cut away back there as well.

All of my modifications will be functional in nature until I have the system built and figure out what I'd like to change.

Anyone running air cooled SLI with this case? With the sale going, I am very tempted. I currently run a 3770k at 1.275v-1.3v @4.6ghz and an Asus GTX670. I'd like to go SLI one day. My CPU is cooled by an nh-d14. Can this case handle that heat or is water the only way to cool that much hardware in a FNB. I am not really interested in investing in H2O, but I'd love this case if it can take the heat.

Valk,

Anything can be made to work if you WANT it to. One thing to remember is that most 'pc enthusiasts' generally overkill when it comes to cooling. Case manufacturers like to convince people that their newest, latest & greatest case with a bazzillion fans and such are what's required to run 'high-end' or 'enthusiast' level hardware. Don't get suckered into that mindset. Look at the manufacturer recommended operating temperatures for the graphics card in question and I'm sure you'll be shocked by how high the nominal and max temps actually are.

As long as air can get in, absorb heat and get out quickly, it's more than enough to keep hardware happy for a long, long time. All you'll need for an SLI setup is perhaps a 140mm fan on the floor of the case to open it up a bit. Overall flow (bottom front to upper back, or upper back to lower front) is up to you, but should be just fine.

-Holly
