If the 1070 Strix is the same as the 1080 Ti size-wise, then it doesn’t properly fit in the bracket. I had to take the bracket out of the case (as per the user manual), take the screw insert out and slightly bend/force the bracket over the plastic fan cover. It’s not aweful, but it did slightly scratch the plastic a bit... It was also slightly trickier to get the bracket back in the case. It sounds worse than it is - in the end it fitted and it all works great.

This case is just too pretty. I have an 850 SeaSonic gold 160mm that I don't want to downgrade to a 600 Corsair because I don't want to hamper my overclocking.

Am I overreacting? Or are components so efficient now that 600 is just as good as 850 for overclocking?

I'm trying out that new 650watt SFX PSU from Silverstone. Works well so far.

I will have to take a look at the dimensions of both cards to compare. That looks like a hell of a bend there, can you bend it back without any issues?

I do want to get a 1080 or 1080 Ti, this could force me into getting one sooner. It seems like the EVGA 1080 Ti SC fits in this case pretty well.

Yup, it snaps right back. The angle I took the photo makes it seem worse than it is, and this is before I pushed it all the way over the plastic fan cover so it looks crocked. When I get my new PSU cables I’ll take it out and photograph it again. I plan on going with a waterblock later so it willl completely resolve this issue anyways.

Yes, it’s awesome! No issues even when pushing my CPU to 5.0GHz. smile.gif

That is good to hear. Whenever you can get more pics up is always cool.

Are you using 140mm fans in the front or 120s? If I use 140, will there be an issue with placing a 120mm rad on the bottom/base at all?

I’m supposed to get the case delivered today, but won’t be able to start the build till tomorrow evening. I bought a SilverStone PWM fan hub yesterday to get all of the fans running in this case to try and keep it cool. I wish they would have sold a rear panel with vented air holes and a dust filter where the GPU sits if you didn’t want that to be glass. It’d probably help with some of the air flow, but it doesn’t sound like heat is that big of an issue in this case.

If the 1070 Ti wasn’t coming out I’d consider the 1080, but stupid NVIDIA pretty much is killing that card with this tactic. Seems like the jump from my 1070 to the Ti would make more sense than a 1080.

For full watercoolong? I think it’s either slim 240 front and slim 120 bottom, or 280 front. If you are asking if a 120 rad will fit with only a 140 fan in the front (but no rad) they I still doubt it - but how would such a setup work anyways?!

I’m using all 140mm fans. 2 be quite! silent wing 3 at the top (near the MB) and the base of the case, and the 2 fans that came with the Kraken for now. I put the Kraken in the AiO pump header and it controls the fans via its own software (not through the MB headers), the top 140 fan in he CPU header and the bottom fan in the Chasis header. It seems to work good that way. When I go water will replace all with Noctua 140mm fans.

As for the GPU, I think I read somewhere that the 1070Ti will be voltage locked and you won’t be able to push it beyond stock, unlike the 1080 - so there is that. Double check it though! I wouldn’t upgrade from 1070 to 1070Ti or 1080, it’s 1080Ti or wait for Volta. smile.gif

I would have went with the SE rads to give yourself more breathing room but great work its similar to my build.
