Welcome to the club everyone. I am liking what I see. I hope to do something more with mine since it's on the low budget side. I want to put more muscle in it! Pretty much used for movies only. I threw in the 8800GT in case I do some light gaming on it...

Here are my specs:
Motherboard: MSI FM2-A75IA-E53
CPU: AMD A6-6400K APU
Memory: 8GB Kingston HyperX Blu DDR3
Power supply: Old - Ultra 400W Modular power supply
Hard drives: Western Digital 160GB 2.5" (from my old laptop) and 1 TB Seagate with all my media on it.

Thanks again everyone!

I'm based in the UK, where can I get some good dust filters for the case and the fans?

level32, how did you make yours? Looks good!

I'm building one with this case too, I had a hard time choosing this or the U3, but finally decided on this for the extra length for the GPU.

Here's my parts:

i7 4790k
Stock cooler
Gigabyte Z97N-Gaming 5
Crucial 2x 8GB DDR3 1333
MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G
Crucial M500 480GB SSD
Toshiba 3TB HDD
EVGA Supernova G2 850W

Haven't decided on the CPU cooler (wanted to do some overclocking) and the 2x 80mm fans yet (I wanted to see if I can mount bigger fans to the side panels, I'm thinking if the fans uses push pins then it might work?)

I should receive all the parts by next week, so hopefully I can put some pictures up asap thumb.gif

Thats gonna be a pretty strong gaming rig! the 970 you chose ranks right up close to a reference 980 in same cases.

I should be getting my Core V1 today, but won't be able to do anything until I get my two new radiators and fans in. My objective will be to fit 2x 240mm radiators on a ventilated "roof" panel - gotta have the cooling for my video card. It's going to be an interesting, albeit simple mod - especially once I can work on a shroud and new front panel. Can't wait until we can order a new windows side panel.

Got one. Going for something thats not really my style, but will certainly be interesting looking. I may do a build log, but finding the time will be tough.

Something like this:

Check your local crafts shops. I got 2 sheets and just cut a frame to the size of the side vents and about 13mm thick. They're adhesive, so I just stuck it to some fiberglass screen that I had a roll of.
