Hi there, as many can see not been registered on overclock forums for long. This is my first build log on the site.
Reason behind why 900D case choice. I’ve been on case hunt since it bought my cm stalker case in 2004 that stayed with me for 3 major hardware upgrades. Looked at Li-lian cases D8000 or PC70, cases from Caselabs and ofc the 800D, all possible fulltower cases but none of them felt quite right. All had some weird gimmick that made them undesirable. Then at start of 2013 i read some rumors about a massive case from Corsair and at CES and i saw the press photos of the 900D + the intervju Linus tech made with George. I was HOOKED. I just had to get one

Complete Image, more at the end.
And some more images.
Building test rig to see if all components are working.
Noctua NH-D14 stopped me from running 3 graphics so had to get myself a H100i
Pre building loops to see what fittings missing and I wont run the inlet fitting at the top of the x250. Both x250 will have same looks. Only change that im planing is to change the black to white. to match the coolent better.
Testing the fan and Corsair Link
Dominator Platinum lightning.
more pre build items.
Will eventually get some good pictures to post up. Soon as I get the case.
Hope you guys stay tuned when the assembly begins.
