Closest watercooling case to this: - Page 3

post #21 of 30
Thread Starter 
Cable management is impossible, I like to LAN a lot and go to events with this computer and the Acrylic does not stand up well against wear and tear. I've broken two slots on the back so there's two sections of abnormally large holes. The way they cut the fan holes for the radiator leaves circular dust spots on the radiator meaning my rad is operating at an un-optimal airflow causing me to think I can get better thermal performance, and I cannot add noise dampening foam to quiet down the case because its clear.. the case vibrates quite a bit (harmonic vibes are irritating)

and it uses the weirdest screws to put together, I can't replace them because I can't find any after losing a few that came lose during a LAN event.
and it scratches easily


Other than that, it is beautiful, I came in second place at Intel LAN FEST case mod competition

Ouch, I swear by DD cases - they simply make all metal cases look like retreads. Sure they scratch a lot if you fling ninja stars at them and practice your Freddy Krueger swipes but a little care goes a long way. I've got a 26 and I have more room than I can imagine. I think it's harder to do cable management in these cases, not because of the size as it has plenty, but the fact that EVERYTHING is seen. Again, care goes a long way.

Want to sell your 29?

HEhe I was going to ask the same thing then I thought... wait if he is saying it is as bad as it is... I don't want it... plus mine will need to come custom from DD

cable management isn't impossible, it is just harder, and will take more care, I think that a neatly cared for cable management can look sexy

Sure I'll sell it, I'm actually wanting to since it cost me $400 in custom work, would be nice to get something from it.

Its also in decent condition, its just stuff like where I slid in 8 new HDDs then sold them and replaced them the next month, the broken slot on the back might bother some perfectionists, but its technically fixable.. But I do have polish that would get rid of most scratches and make it new

Coming in custom will cost an arm and a leg so be prepared to open up your wallet generously. Cable management is hard, even with a modular PSU.

Like I said, it looks great, its a head turner, but its a bit too fragile for my taste.

arm and a leg?

Danger Den is just down the road to me and I know the owner of the shop

head turner not so much around here because @ PDXLAN Danger Den is a huge name and a ton of people there have the case, one reason why I have not bought one...

will need to spend a $100 on air filters... like most cases no one(manufactures) seems to care about filters.

I personally cant stand dust inside of my case

I agree that Cooler Master cases are downright ugly. Their cases are reputable here though due to their easy to work with and airflow factor. Quite a lot of fans you can fit in there. If you don't want the fan grills, build some or buy some. You might want to give the case some cable management too. I would recommend you get the Silverstone TJ07 or get the Silverstone TJ11 which is much larger. What inspired me to like Silverstone cases after some basic changes was this. This is a beautiful modification. The 3M DI-NOC vinyl is a great alternative instead of getting a carbon fiber case which is rare. However, I would recommend the Case Labs Magnum M8/M10 above the Silverstone cases. Danger Den however has some beautiful acrylic cases.
