Bought this case and did NOT see a owners club, so I made one.
Some tips for people building.
Cable Management (Click to show)
PRE THINK EVERYTHING if you want a clean build, the below tip about wrapping the 24 pin around came to my mind when thinking of using the MSI B85 where its awkward 24pin connector location, isn't so awkward in this case.

Semi modular or fully modular is a must in this case, SFX psus allow for a longer length video card to be installed.
There is a space behind and to the side of the PSU after it's installed. TAKE ADVANTAGE!

Wrap the 24 pin around the front of the PSU and down in front of the bottom 3.5 hard drive mount.Could also use this for SATA power.

I personally recommend grabbing a SATA to dual Molex ( like the one below) for the bottom hard drive mount as the way the SATA power cable goes in puts too much stress for the drive, for my liking.

This will plug into the drives using a single Molex connector and allowing little to no stress on the power SATA connector(Molex seem to be easier to hide as well)
Thats all for now.

Also thinking of doing a build in this case.

Mine should be in Thursday according to ups.Usually they over estimate a day, at least for me, so hopefully Wednesday, its looks like a great case, and I can't speak highly enough about Raijinteks customer support. Fast and very nice, asked a guy about how much panels would be as I want to mod, and he said that when they get an RMA case that they're mine for free if I pay shipping. Responses were fast too!

I'm looking forward to your pictures. What are you planning to put in it?

On a side not, I just did a volume calculation and the Metis comes out at 13.4L. The SG05 at 10.5L. I've never seen the Metis in person, but I'm surprised the Metis is roughly 30% larger. Does it seem that much bigger for those that have it?

On another side note, I'm really surprised that this case isn't more popular.

I'm also suprised about this case not being at a higher popularity level, I think it may be because its from an unknown brand. as for size I can't help you there sadly. as for compenents right now I have no idea,sold my board to focus on other things at the moment.Will be doing an ITX rig at some point in this

I'm highly considering picking up this case if my Monsta works out cooling my CPU/GPU in my 380T. I'd use a SFX PSU, probably invert the motherboard (I assume this is easily done since the build is pretty modular) and relocate that SFX PSU in order to fit the Monsta in there. I'd probably try and mod a 120mm fan to the front in order to get the Monsta to fit, but given the extra space in the "top" portion, I should be able to mount the PSU flush to the top (with a vent) and still fit a 120mm radiator in there.

Just thinking through it.

Too much modding required for my taste, but it sounds great. If you decide to go that route, please show biggrin.gif

I'm not sure I understand what you want to do. If you invert the motherboard, what changes?

It allows me to utilize the top for at least a single 120mm fan, in addition to the PSU being mounted there, as well as a pump and/or res mounting off the 120mm fan. There's a lot of options, but a Monsta in push/pull is pretty wide so I'm sure how it'd be configured. Given the length of the case, I'm honestly not sure how feasible the idea is - but, given the cost of the case, not too much out of pocket if it doesn't work.
