I ordered one from newegg on Friday. I am really getting into the SFF PC's. FYI, tigerdirect is cheaper, but since I am in Florida and have to pay tax, they ended up being $1 more than newegg and their crazy $22 shipping.

Anyway, should be fun. I am going to go with a Black & Orange theme for mine (big KTM guy). Also, did anyone else try to get the clear top panel? Its on CM's website, including a p/n, but you cant order it.

That is awesome you guys! Post some pics up when you get em' so I can add you to the club. thumb.gif If you are starting a build log I would love to link them in the OP. I will be posting some updates of my Xbuild in the next week or two.

so what kind of rads can you fit in this case? if you don't mind me asking.

I will get back to you soon on the rad compatibilities ( no time tonight, work early tomorrow)

This radiator is mounted on the front of the case and is 125x58.5x286mm with room to spare, see pic below. (not mine, source here)

I'm keenly interested if this thing will fit either version of the Silver Arrow with a 200/230mm fan in the top mesh. I know CM says coolers up to 180mm high but is that with our without a fan up there?

Since my current rig is pretty recent build and well above the spec I need, I just plan on transferring everything over to the new case. Luckily I have a slew of sweet Cougar fans just setting in my spare parts bin to utilize. Granted, I don't think I have any 80mm fans. Guess I need to get some of those. My rig will retain the closed loop water cooling as well.

That's my build, I actually moved it from a thermaltake level10 GT for ease of wiring. . I've never had a cleaner case EVER! And I would be humbled to be added to the club, TY thumb.gif





I will say, she's a LOT happier than she was in the level 10 GT, where she was running 4.7 @ 1.32

Welcome to the club mindinversion !!! cheers.gif You are officially our first member, your name has been linked to your case and added to the members list! Those are some excellent clocks you have there, I am glad the Xb's cooling configuration was a step up compared to your previous Tt L10.

Thinking of upgrading my HAF 922 to this beast, it's only 100 bucks how can you beat that for the sheer functionality this case can provides? saves space, compact, and easy to carry. plus a great future LC/test bench setup.

Agreed.

Mine showed up yesterday evening. First order of business is to flush mount my PSU. If the piece I made works out, I will post a pic of it installed.

Works good for anyone willing to spend some time on laying out your holes.

I just used some scrap metal:



The contrast in color isn't as glaring without the flash:



I wish Cooler Master would have sent an extended bracket, AND a normal flush mount bracket. I fixed my only major gripe about this case relatively quick. thumb.gif


This case has A LOT of potential to the modding community. I am thinking of removing the 5 inch bays so I can properly mount both sides of my fan controller next. We'll see how it fits, being just screwed to one side first......biggrin.gif
