Just built mine last night and was slightly disappointed as I could only fit my h80 in the front but was able to do push/pull. Also, the fan filter on the gpu side was making contact with the gpu fans. I would also say that a fully modular PSU is not 100% needed but is highly highly recommended.<br><br>
Heres my parts list and pics later.<br><br>

That's a solid build <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"><br>
Got any pictures of it?<br><br>
Also, going back to my PSU thing. I think I'll get the CX500M for $40. All the reviews are good and it's enough for my build. 430W was a tad too low.

Damn this club was hard to find. I had already given up looking for a 250D thread and found this one. This should be on the main page on the cases forum imo <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Anyways great case, wanted to buy one but just found out my gpy does not fit. Appears Asus DCII cards to nof fit <img alt="frown.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/frown.gif">

You know that's what I initially thought but I've seen multiple builds now that use an Asus DCII card.

780's?<br><br>
Half of the reviews mention it will not fit, others say nothing and in the corsair introduction vid on youtube there is a dcII card in there but its a different cooler than the one on a 780

I have a 70lb, fully WC'd rig I play on and it's great...but it's so huge that after I took it one year to PAX East I made up my mind to downsize when I could and now's the time. I've ordered all the parts and this first revision will be a simple rig w/just the CPU under a closed water loop. Rev two in the fall will add full water. Parts list so far:<br><br><a class="bbcode_url" href="http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2RHjy" target="_blank">http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2RHjy</a><br><br>
The case arrived yesterday and it's exactly what they said it would be...well manufactured, a little bigger than mini ITX cases out there...and large enough to work in a compact water solution. When the rest of the parts arrive I'll post some pics...but so far I love the case and can't wait to play tinker toy w/rest of it.

Awesome now going to email them! I think i'll go for mobo 24pin, cpu power, sata power in 30cm and then pcie in 40cm just to be safe.<br><br>
Thanks for your help! <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"></div>
</div>
After looking at it, I could of gotten away with 35cm instead of 45cm for the PCIE cables.

Ah thanks anyway, sent a email for a qoute for 40cm pcie cables. Rather go a bit longer than needed to be safe <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif">

In mine i have:<br><br>
ASUS Z87I-DELUXE LGA 1150<br>
Intel Core i5-4570<br>
XFX XTR Series P1-650B-BEFX 650W<br>
CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i<br>
Zotac GTX 760<br>
2x4 Corsair Vengeance 1600 mhz<br><br>
It was a bit cramped to work in, but I like it. Using it as an HTPC as I have an entertainment center that consists of a bunch of cubed spaces, so I just shoved in in one of those.

That looks super nice and clean. Great specs too <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"><br>
I won't be able to build mine until next Tuesday at the earliest since that's when my motherboard is estimated to arrive <img alt="frown.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/frown.gif">

Case arrived today! <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
I went ahead and installed the H100i (I've had it sealed in its box since December)<br>
I'll post the finished build after I get the P8Z77-I motherboard and CX500M power supply.<br><br>
I'm super excited for this thing and it's even better in person. I love it already.<br><br>
I would have it on the right of my desk but my cat comes in and out through that window. But, this gives me more mouse room I suppose. Not that I need it.<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1887271/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1887271" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1887271/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a>

Hi all !<br><br>
This is my next case for my build but i have one question :<br><br>
- how is the clearance (exactly) for GPU under top panel ?<br><br>
I have a ASUS GTX 780 DCU2 with 147mm heigh and i doubt that i can build it with this case.<br><br>
Someone can measure that for me ?<br><br>
Thanks !

I think one of the reviewers said the 780 DCU2 has a heatpipe that touches the top of the window, which might melt it over time.

Yeah, Tiny Tom Logan from OC3D actually tested this with his and had to replace the card with a different one. The top of the case won't even close with that card in its place. Then during the TastyPC review, Lauren had the DCU2 in there and she had to remove it placing her Mars 760 in there instead.<br><br>
I am deciding between this and the Raven for my ITX build. I keep swaying back and forth between the two. I do like that the 250D allows for using all your current components instead of having to go to SFX power supplies, etc.

Does anyone know, if I'd be able to fit both a 200mm front intake, along with a H100i in the side of the 250D?

Actually, she said the DCU2 just barely fit. She just has a "hard-on" for that Mars card.<br>
I have a R9 280X DC2 Top, and Im waiting for the 250d to arrive. Will post once I know

I'm pretty sure it can but i'll check tonight. I just installed a Cooler Master 200mm fan and it doesn't come in contact with my side fans. I don't have my H100i installed right now but I could check if there's clearance.
