Here is my final build pictures of the RM3 I constructed, in case people didn't see the build log. smile.gif The case was awesome to work with, almost perfectly designed to my personal preferences. Every piece is modular and only takes a few screws to take apart.

That's one sexy looking case and build man. Positive envy from here! Congrats!

Only difference I can see with yours is that the power button and USB ports are placed lower at the front panel.

I want to use the case horizontally.
I already asked Inter-Tech if that was possible and they confirmed. But what's withholding me, is how to rid of the 4 feet and what to do to hide the holes that will surely be there.

Totally different case. Not similar at all.

Have you got a link to the product page of yours?

Looks like the windowed UMX4: http://www.jonsbo.com/en/products_33_2.html

I dream of having a matched pair of Jonsbo rigs - a W1 and a W2...but no distribution in North America...grrr...

Yeah you're right. It's the UMX4. Still, the AP1 carries a strong resemblance to the UMX4. There's a window on both sides of the UMX4 though. The rear end looks exactly the same.

Has Rosewill stopped selling Jonsbo in North America?
They (used to?) sell a Rosewill Legacy W1 and Legacy MX2.
I believe that wiretap told me about that. Not sure though.
But you probably already knew about Rosewill anyway.
Anyway, looking at wiretap's build, even without all the customisations that he made, I would go through great lengths to get a Jonsbo or Jonsbo OEM case.

I have a W2 which I love, but am having a quandry about the best cooling set-up. I currently have an AIO front mounted as intake, x2 120mm fans at the bottom, also intake, and a single 120mm at the rear as exhaust. I have a reference 980 so that's exhausting out the back, therefore not dumping any hot air in to the case. This seems to be the optimal cooling config for the W2. My big debate though is with the upcoming 1070/1080 Nvidia cards. I plan to get one of these, but Nvidia have priced the Reference (Founder's Edition) cards sky high, so the non-ref cards are going to be cheaper, faster out the box, quieter and cooler... would getting one of these really be a bad idea for the W2? Has anyone tried a reference GPU vs non-reference in the W2 to see what difference it makes to internal temps?

I don't think blower cards in general are worth it unless you're planning to put three of them in SLI, or strap an AC Extreme on them.
By upping the case fans' speeds and using a non-ref card you'd get cooler and quieter setup.
