No I don't have ODD :-) I have an external one I use just to install some games but that is it. Windows 7 I have on a flash drive :-)

Me neither. I share the dvd drive in my server over my lan. But for windows I do pop in a spare sata drive to install.

Man lightsout!! I gotta say this isnt a bad looking case. Im its starting to grow on me, that or the 600T for my next case. Wont be too soon since Im still considering the custom loop for the tj08-e, I still like its tiny size, but next case will probably be atx.

I think this case has a lot of potential though, I would probably find a clean way to paint or "wrap" the front silver panel, probably make a bigger window too and this thing would be perfect.

Thanks man. Yah I am loving this case for sure, get a few bucks so I grabbed some black extensions for the gpu power, a fan controller and a couple new fans.

But it actually has no window. Really needs one though. But I do like it how it is.

It would probably be pretty easy to hide the silver. It doesn't bother me though.

This case looks sweet!

I might change out a 650d case for this in the future.

9980XE  •  APEX VI  •  3600CL15  •  KPE 2080TI HC  •  34GK950F-B  •  970 PRO 1TB  •  1600T2  •  800D

Lol yeah saw the newegg video right after, I thought it was a tinted window or something. How well does air get past those covers? Enough for a radiator? Curious how temps are with your h100

Bump for wondering about H100 temps, I've been looking at this case for a week or so and I think I'm going to settle for this or a 600t. I really like all the luxury touches (super thick sound deadening, rubber grommets and rubber lined doors, etc). I'd use an H100 too.

I'm also curious if it is possible to fit a fan controller inside the door without it creating a bulge? Has anyone been able to do this?

I have my 1090t at 4Ghz, idles at ambient temp, never gets above 54*c on full LinX load. That is with the stock corsair fans in pull setup inside the case. If I put them on the highest setting full LinX load doesnt go above 50* if that.

As for a fan controller, unless you can remove the knobs, you wont be able to close the door. but it is removable if need be.

Oh, I am now running 2x 140mm YL med fans on the side. Keeps my 4890s about 10* cooler and still dead silent. I am now able to keep my 4890s fans at 50% or less under full load. (Diablo 3)

You need to take off the vent covers if you have fans in those spots. I made that mistake at first and temps were no good. But there is magnetic dust filters on all the fan vents.

Staryoshi a previous owner recommended me the Nasty sentry mesh controller. It will be here on Tuesday. It should work with the front door closed. Its on amazon only 25 shipped.

As for the h100 temps I'm pretty pleased. 2600k at 4.8ghz is in the low 70s while priming. While folding it usually stayed at 69c with some peaks at 70 on the hottest core.

This is with the h100 in exhaust up top and only two front fans intaking. My 670 windforce will be here monday. As I understand it is going to want some more air so I have some fans coming for the side panel.
