    Those fans look sweet. Can't wait to see how they perform and look. Just curious, does that case not come with fans or how many?

    It comes with 2 120 mm fans, but that doesn't cut it for me. These fans are much higher CFM for the same amount of noise, and they look much better IMO.

    This is so cool.

    How come you had to thread the fans?

    Not familiar with that process...

    They sure do. Thats odd it doesn't come with the front 230 fan or did it have a 120 there instead. I never really looked reviews or prod specs on it since its a small case i'm not into mitx/matx.

    Its something I have always done, it makes using fan screws much easier, so your not striping fan screws and ending up with screws you can't take out.

    I found it odd to but a quick trip to Performance PCS fixed the issue :)

    The fans look great! Performance-pcs has done me well, though I hate paying tax :cry:

    So far it's looking pretty beautiful, keep the pics coming :roll:

    I just looked the board up for specs. That things loaded. I hope it performs well and lives up to your standards. I was just about to ask if you were gonna get some high speed ddr3 lol seeing that board supports up to 2400. But you should be good with the ones you chose.

    Thing is coming along really sweet. Keep it up. Looking forward to benchies.

    Spot-on!.. i was guessing a blower fan type(back exhaust) GPU for this type of case.. u have chosen the best among them.. congrats!..
    besides that card deserves more quality pics..

    if you dont mind, could you detail (with pics) the filters used in the case(especially front & side).. I haven't got to see them clearly & i might consider buying this case in future..
    also, the right side panel with USB & audio connections.. please detail your experience with them.. they might the tricky part of the case(besides the PSU routing) as far as i know..
