Once I add my second system I'll flip the front ones to be my intake since I won't really have a choice at that point.

Corsair made some design compromises compared to other towers I've built.

-The pump mounting area is very small and forced me to stagger the two D5's
-3.5" drive bay is non-removable, but I plan on modding my case and making a smaller enclosure there
-front radiator thickness is limited to 60mm if you want a push/pull due to the drive bays

Other than these things I've been happy with the case. Once I finalize the current design I'm going to start planning how my second system is going to run. I want 4 loops if possible inside the case, 3 at a minimum. My GPU will be getting replaced within a month anyway so that will cue some other upgrades as well.
I've never been able to feel the exhaust air temp when sitting at my desk -- it's always blowing away from me. And those compromises are nothing compared to most other cases. I only use 60mm max thickness rads as I don't like the 80mm ones. The staggered mounts wouldn't bother me, as I'd most likely mount the pump-res combos to the rad fans anyway.

If I was building in this case, I'd have the front and top be cold air intakes for the rads and the rear be exhausting the warmed air. I'd be using monoblocks so there wouldn't be any consequences for having the interior being a bit warmer than it otherwise could be.
Here's a picture showing where my old tower and new one sit/sits. I can feel the heat after a while but I'll likely swap the fans orientation when I get my cables this week. The inside of my case is identical to ambient temperature so there's no issue running my setup as is. I montior thermals at 5 points in my case so I'll have to compare it when I make the change. I agree about the compromise but I'm shocked Corsair didn't make that area removable. In terms of versatility my Thermaltake was significantly better. I like the 1000D a lot becuase the panels make access a breeze plus the downsides are minimal. I'll be pushing the limits with 3 let alone 4 loops. I'm not sure I'll be able to find a Mini-ITX X99 motherboard since only 1 was made and I can't find it in stock (ASRock X99E-ITX). My set up is silent with all 21 fans at 800-1000 rpm, in fact I'll likely be able to shut off the rad fans and passively cool everything I'd I wanted for normal stuff. I think you'll like the set up once I finish it off with new cables and fix the tubing.

Edit: Added older picture of my 'office'

Talking Update 6/5/18

I got a surprise this morning in the form of my CableMod order! The new elegant cables were promptly installed, I flipped all of the fans since I moved the tower to a better location, and fixed a piece of tubing. Proper cable management will be done once I install the Aquaero later. This stage of the build is finally nearing completion. My Aquearo 6XT arrives this afternoon and will be installed alongside the Corsair LEDs tomorrow with pictures to follow. For now enjoy the pictures (some of them keep posting sideways for an unknown reason)

I added in Aquacomputer inline temp sensors, and rearranged some cables/tubing. I'll post an update this weekend when I get some time.

With the imminent launch of Nvidias next gen GPU and intels new CPUs my system is getting a complete overhaul again. I will rebuild the entire PC with a second system and swap my X99 based CPU onto a mITX board so both will fit into the case. Custom loops won't be an option from day 1 unless EKWB releases their waterblocks for Nvidias FE based cards. I have a second CPU block (EKWB Supremacy EVO in nickel) which could hopefully be used with an adapter on the second system. Stay tuned for more updates!

A little update since I forgot to post one before .


2080ti FE and EKWB full nickel/Plexi block + backplate have been ordered! I'm waiting on the i9 9900K to launch so I can add that to the list.

I'm also considering a build in a 1000D, I have an idea for a custom front acrylic sheet, to replace the tempered glass. Can you give me any insight on its dimensions or how it is attached?

Very nice build so far!
Got my 1000D two weeks ago, and I do love it a lot.
Asus RIVBE/I7 4960K (passive video card) and Asrock Z170 fatality/I7 6700K/1080ti.
I have swaped the radiator support plate, so I got the two 360 EX radiator on the top, and 3 x 120mm fans blowing "cold" air on the front.
Since I live in a tropical island, I had to do it this way.
Only downside so far, the commander pro is really.. erhm..2 fan port are not working at all well I wish I could install my aquaero 6 instead, but I in the end I think I will drop it inside, it far more robust.

can you put photos, how and where you installed aquaero?
