Heres a pic. Add me to the list!! grouphug.gif

The angle is screwed up because had to find a decent way to place the tubing without them getting in the way with everything else. Mid towers suck frown.gif

you mean the tubing? Not sure exactly, I'm sure you could find that info on the benchmarkrevews review. I remember seeing a ruler....

Manootie, please add yourself to the list smile.gif I'll do it if you want but it's better when everyone does it themselves becauase you can add comments that people will be able to read on the OP.

I'm in. You can check out my rig and some minor stress tests at the following link: https://www.overclock.net/computer-cases/981247-my-rig-incomplete.html#post12979577

I'm using a push/pull config with some stock cooler master fans (waiting for a replacement).

I'm contemplating on buying the 620 since it has the slim rad that I would need in my itx rig and has the slim pump/heatsink. I just think it's overkill on a undervolted/stock 2600k.

Ta, the review said its 30cm, so should be enough I think. Will confirm that tommorrow.

What fans would be good on these? Think I will go with two...

A better cooler is always well, better! I built my gf an i3 and with the stock cooler temps reach 70 degrees. I'm not too sure how the ambient was, but it was definitely cool. I'd say somewhere between 70-75 but not sure exactly. Plus a good cooler will keep temps low to where the life of the cpu is extended. I dont think anyone will keep their cpu for 10 years though lol. Anyway, its good to have for low temps and if you ever decide to overclock "one day" then there you go! Also quiet too!

It's a Rosewill Blackhawk.

The cable management took some work, and there's still some tidying I need to do when I update my system in May (monthly paychecks suck).

Installed the Antec 620 cooler a few days ago.
Had a Noctua NH-U12P SE2 cooler before.
The Antec looks really good and improves the room around the motherboard.
As an experiment I used the Noctua fans in a push/pull setup on the Antec in a intake configuration.
Doing that I improved the cooling by about 2-3c.
Idle temps on my OC 920 are about +/-40c
With having an exhaust configuration because I have two GTX 285 cards with aftermarket cooling the heat they put into the case was getting "sucked" out through the Antec causing it to heat up more.
Not sure if the Noctua fans are correct for the Antec, maybe somebody can suggest a better fan.
Also I have them connected up to a fan controller.
My next upgrade (depending on finances) will be a single GTX 580.
That should lower heat in my case.
Overall I'm happy with the Antec 620

For kicks, I decided to use the Antec recommended spec and have the air from in my case exhaust out through the Kuhler. I'mnot liking it. My idle temps and load temps shot up by almost 4-5c compared to when I had cool and clean air push/pull as intake.

Very annoying.
