Got a free mouse mat and thermal paste which was nice!

Can't wait to see the progress of your build.

My build with the 460X is now all finished! Was quite a nice case to build with, was worried about cable management round the back and the cables protruding from the side panel but the rear steel panel is actually offset from the chassis by a few mm so you have more room than you think.

Did have a issue with trying to plug in all three case fans into my mobo as it only has 2 chassis fan headers but ended up plugging one into the water pump header which is controllable via fan xpert 4 within Asus's Ai suite 3 software. Case overall is very quiet, my Noctua NH-U12S cools the i5-7600K quite well at its stock speed of 4.2Ghz getting about 63-65c average at full load and 30-33c at idle. Which is only a few more degrees higher than what I got with a H100i so happy with that. Also worth noting I have all fans on a fairly low profile so even at full load the fans are never even that audible.

I like the PSU shroud, I personally took out the hard drive cage and used the 2.5" mounts in the rear as I found it just got in the way of the cables I had to put inside the case within that area. Then I come to the look of the case and my god drool.gifdrool.gifdrool.gif does it look good, the glass along with the RGB fans looks amazing, and looks a lot better in person. Quite easily the best looking case I've ever used and seen in person myself. If your on the fence about buying this case just go and buy it! thumb.gif

Heres some pics, apologies for the quality of some as it was in the evening and had no natural light:

Awesome build. I like what you have done there. How does the mATX board look in there? Can't quite tell from the pics.

Thanks! It looks good actually, as this is quite a compact ATX case it doesn't look lost or out of place, helps make the build look quite clean I think.

I have just installed another Noctua fan for push/pull and it's dropped temps a few degrees at load, which I'm happy with now get sub 60c at 4.2ghz with a fairly quiet fan profile.
