First, why is this in new members instead of cases?

Anyway, I am almost done moving my system from my old Xigmatek Elysium into my new X71.

Here is a early shot in red. I still have to finish some cable management and such to clean things up. I'm also not super happy with where I have the reservoir. The case is illuminated with an RGB LED strip so I can do whatever color I want, but I also want to light up my Raystorm cpu water block but that will only be one color so I need to decide on that color still. I don't have the back panel on yet so you can still see through my case, haha.

I was a little disappointed in Thermaltake's planning for the front of this case. What is the point of allowing a 480mm radiator in the front if the front panel will not fit if you have 4x 120mm fans in the front. It wasn't a big deal to just dremel out the plastic that was hitting the top 120mm fan, but there was no need for it to have been a problem in the first place. They could have just had the dust filter flat in the front of the case instead of making it curve back towards the inside of the case.

The acrylic window is super super super super super super soft acrylic. I have scratches on mine from trying to clean it with Novus 1 and Novus acrylic cloths (cloths made specifically to avoid harming acrylic and leaving lint).


Oh and in case you are wondering, why yes, I do have a 480mm in the front, a 240mm in the top, a 120mm on the back, and a 360mm radiator in the bottom. All for a 2500k and GTX 970, neither of which is overclocked. biggrin.gif

nice build man, did you end up doing the quad fans in the front ?
how much did you have to remove ?
does the fan filter still fit in good ?

Yeah, I was able to just dremel out a bit of the plastic in the front panel so that I could fit a 4th fan. It was quick and easy with a dremel cutting disc. The front dust filter works as well as ever.
