I have just sold my MM Extended Ascension a few weeks ago and got a Little Devil V8 White (10 Expansion Slots) instead.
http://img6.imagebanana.com/img/h8fx7g55/Untitled.png

The MM was just sucking up too much money to finish and with every day the completion of the build became more and more of a pain.

Also the case is just massive and although the space is supposed to be handy in my experience it turned out quite the contrary.
The problem was that I had never actually seen it in real life.
Only videos,worklogs and MM hp.
Mostly from that idiot:

(Unbelievably annoying but still a good look of the case)
I imagined it to be quite big and fit everything but when it actually arrived it was just too extreme^^
My budget was exceeded too vastly by getting all the grills , shrouds ,fans,dust filers,fan controllers,etc etc ...it is kind of stupid but you actually don´t realize how expensive that stuff really is once you add them all up , at least I didn´t^^
So I decided to sell it and get the LD Devil instead.

Now I am having second guesses about my decision.
Should I have kept my MM?
Or maybe I should have taken the Case Labs V10/V8 or the new ones coming out?
I saw this:
I PM´ed with Little Devil Member here and he too said that lots of MM and Lian LI users switched over to LD so at least some reasurance^^

So I would just like your oppinions on that matter

I know nothing about these things, but one way or another, it's done now, so you'll just have to deal with it...
in my experience things normally work out in the end...
from what i have seen of the other posts on here, should be a treat

Hmm the Extended Ascension is a great case literally
But watercooling options are just too much.
And if you are not willing to fit radiators in 26 fan openings you have to fill the up with fans or it will look stupid.

Esthetically the Little Devil is more appealing to me personally because I prefer it over the cube shape.
Also My watercooling gear isn´t gigantic.

I have a Koolance 370
had a Phobya 1080 rad which I sold for 2xRX480 with Gentle Typhoon (for the LDV8)
2xD5 in series with white EK top
Phobya Balancer 250 res with Spiral attachment
1/2" UV green tubing
2x EK Waterblocks for 6950 CF
Chrome barbs

That is just not enough to fill up a Extended Ascension ...and if it isn´t full it wlll kook stupid ..Xibit A:


Personally I hate this annyoing kid so much Oo but moving on^^

The TH10/V10/V8 from case labs are kinda based on the same principal.
It is actually very hard to please the common costumer.
We want space but we also want it to be compact and practical.

The biggest problem of buying a case is encountered if you can´t see it in person.
Because if you don´t have direct perception it can be hard to imagine the dimensions even though you got the numbers.

I would like to disclaim people at this point...don´t buy a case of such dimensions without having actually seen it^^

I am pretty happy with my choice of the Little Devil V8 but I would still here more of your oppinons
