I bought a truck today. It wasn't that white one though. It's black and chrome, a couple less features but more affordable. Considering the biggest loan I have ever had was $7K, the bank wasn't comfortable loaning me $35K even with good credit. I settled on a $25K truck. It's nice, but no touchscreen navi with bluetooth and backup camera frown.gif. Once I get several months of consecutive payments on a big boy loan I can trade in for a model with all the bells and whistles. Sorry for the off topic, just excited that I no longer have hand-crank windows!

IS that the reason? OOOOOOOOOOOh snappalicious.... or something.

In all seriousness, 30 cases since 2012 World? That beats me out and I've owned 26 now, lol.

2012 was a crazy year. I had a new case every month. Big boy stuff, 800Ds, FT02 Limited Edition and two standard, RV01 and RV03, Lian Li's V1020R / X1000 / P50R, Cooler Master Cosmos Black etc.
I've forgot most of the cases I've had. Fractal, ATCS 840, V750WX, Lian LI Z70B and A77F. Man I can be here all day. Lian Li V354B, lol - I was searching for the perfect case but couldn't find it.

But the look and craftsmanship on this case shows a lot of care went into it. All the others were stamp out cookie cutter. But this was clearly well thought out and planned.

Not one part of the case I said, I wish this was removable, I wish more space was here, why this can't fit there or I have to cut/drill a part.

For the first time, my rivet gun, dremel, drill and the powdercoating/watercutting shop I go to will not be used to improve a case. Shocking!

A quetion here could the 120 x 38 HDD mounts for the HDD side be widened by a few millimeters?

I can't seem to get my 120 x 38 Delta AFBs to fit inside the mount as the threaded hole(The one that takes thumbscrews in order to attach the mount to the case) protrudes on the inside. Any good ideas on how to get it in there without modifying the fan? I'm thinking of bending the front side of the mount outwards.

I have to agree with you the S3 is an awesome case for a full blown power rig and has options to let you build it anyway you want. Personally I do not do the water cooling loops, I use an AiO if I want water at all. The S3 is an awesome air cool case with me using dual 120 in the front along with 140 on the top for intake, the back of the case feels like a small box fan there is so much air exhaust form just the positive air pressure.

With the new dual 140 for the front option I am itching to remove the AiO since I do not overclock much and put in dual 140 for intake on the back along with the dual 140 on the top.

Also a new part consideration, have you guys look at building a fan ramp for the front? What I mean is a small piece that would extend from the rear of the motherboard tray at an angle to the base of the case at the front so that the bottom intake fans air would be channeled up to the motherboard and video card?

Other people who criticize from afar just have to see one in person.

I got the S3, the most affordable version, to see one for myself.
Anyone else on the fence can do the same. Now I can justify a larger case purchase from them.

@ WorldExlusive - I can recall reading your posts in the CL threads for at least the last year plus, poking here and there about the cases ... and I kept wondering when you'd pull the trigger !
Congrats !

Now I'm going to wait until mid-April to see if Nv will release a GTX 790. If not, then I'll just get the GTX 780 and Step-Up to a 780Ti 6GB.

Oh MY !! wth ! a 6gb 780 for $550 ?!?! wow, things are getting interesting biggrin.gif

Now that's a COOL idea !
