My work is done and I could not be happier! First a few more pics and then my summary and opinion, like anyone cares....
The MB tray has a removable back plate.
Here is a pic with the back plate mounted. Hmmm, what are those rubber things?
One of the most ingenious things that I have ever seen. I believe this is a first, I may be wrong, but this is meticulous attention to detail!
Outstanding, bench test with your own MB tray, who knew? BTW, this is not an option, it is included!
Here is the top with the ventilated cover removed.
Toto, we are not in Kansas... Yes, you can mount two 120.4's up top!
Now a look at the bottom....
Toto, we must be in Texas? And yes, you can have two 120.4's down here too!
I decided to remove one bottom panel and this will allow me plenty of room for tubing and cables. This was a nice surprise as I cannot bring myself to get out my step drill!
For those of you that have asked about "filling up the case," it can happen. And, remember this is before tubing for 3 loops, 6 SSD's, Aquadrive X-4, 3 Aquaero XT's, Aqua Muliswitch, Aqua Poweradjust 2 ( 3 with mounting plate), 3 Rads and 5 pumps!
In summary, CL makes the best cases available, period! The quality is as close to perfect as possible. Jim and the CL team are purist and their passion is obvious. This case was designed by an enthusiast and someone that truly understands H20 cooling.
The little things get my attention. This case allows for 120 or 140 fans, pre-drilled. I have tried all day to find a flaw, to no avail. I cannot find a flaw, which really pisses me off. Well, not really, but you get my point. This is engineering at its finest and outstanding planning.
The pro's are obvious and I honestly have no cons. Some of you may say that this case is expensive, wrong! This case will last you for many years.
It is made in the USA and I am extremely proud to own one.
TheSeeker scale is 1-8 and CL gets an 8!
I could type and talk all day about CL, but I will not. I will say this, it is not a Ferrari, Bentley or an Aston-Martin. This is a Bugatti Veyron! I don't own one, but I have had the opportunity to drive three of them. Then again, since it is made in the USA, it could be a Ford GT?
Cheers, Buy the CL!
