got the TH10 the other day... this thing is BIG. much bigger than i expected. I had fun rolling the box end over end.
So I'm really embarassed to post this, but here's a summary of the events of the past few days.. (i do not own a camera, sorry)
First off the holes for the fan screws are too small. I'm NOT drilling this case, need to get some different hardware for fan mounting.. Anyway, I got everything transferred in from my old case with no major problems (other than fan screws). I couldn't really figure out where to mount the pump and res so I just ziptied the pump on top of the power supply and ziptied the res to one of the rad fans. (I plan on just getting a dual bay pump/res soon, so not important, very temporary.)
While getting it setup, I had some molex pins pop out of the connector on me... I hate those things.. so I put the pins back in in what I THOUGHT was the correct order.
Turned it on for leak test.. I hear some cracking noise .. ***.. now there's SMOKE. OMG ***. turned off. I had the red/black pins mixed up. So my dvd drive is officially fried. no worries.
Got that all cleared up, hauled the thing over into my bedroom (its like dishwasher size), hooked it up, turned on.. No beeps, no post. *** **** Went through the whole thing of trouble shooting/swapping, figured the PSU is fried from the previous mishap. Swapped PSU with known good one, still no post...
Turns out I am seriously retarded... The mobo tray of the TH10 had extra standoffs underneath the mobo. I didn't think anything of this.. they were shorting out the board.
Removed extra standoffs, re did loop a little better, all set.
I'm really excited with this case. SO much room to add various things, lots of space.
Now i'm going to settle down for a month, and then the 480mm rad fun will begin.
Only thing I would suggest so far is to resize the fan screw holes (am I missing something here?), and the slit at the top to allow fan cables to slide down should also reach into the PSU side of the case. Some of the front panel cables are too short for TH10. Mobo tray should be extended 1 inch to close up that gap, my cables are showing.
BTW it still smells like burnt plastic in here. mmmmEdited by lloyd mcclendon - 4/21/11 at 6:28pm
