    The case is a beauty to work on for sure.
    I always wanted the Big brother but imo it was to big.
    Corsair unleashed the 650D and I was all over it...
    Show me a few cases that can fit an extra long Radeon gpu into....
    But anyways sorry for the ramble :eek:

    These cases are a Diamond at the least :rockout:

    No such thing as too big. When I first bought my 800D I thought that, but now it's starting to show its true colors with custom water, dual cards, two separate raid setups, etc. I'm glad I didn't get something smaller for this machine. I would have had to upgrade again. The 650D is awesome too. I have thought about grabbing one for my other home machine, but I recently acquired an RV02 for $75 brand new from Fry's so I nixed that.

    Ok its done, never touched anything more sexy than this (only my wife of course :laugh: ). Amazing, amazing is the word. never had a high quality case in my hands, i enjoyed build my pc again after 2 with a temporally case.

    Things i did is change the front fan to a spare CM megafow black, remove the two drive cages and use only one close to the psu. Also changed the rear fan for a Gentle Typhoon 1850rpm from my previous case.also removed the cables from the front sata hot swap. this combined with some Bitfenix alchemy cables... well, i now like the look of my pc.
    Added some Sleeved led kit from nzxt, but i need some more work placing it.

    This was waiting for me when I got home. Dang, I love it when the UPS man comes. Put my beer in the shot for size. Wow. It's a doosey. Now I just have to wait for my other goodies to show up.

    No, this 700 came with both the window and side panel. I didn't want an 800 because I didn't want the hot swaps in the way for some modding I have planned, specifically, remove the lower HDD cage so my 240 rad can go below.

    I bought this case a few days ago and i've noticed something odd: when i use any of the included connectors for the front fan, the CPU fan throttles down but if i use a motherboard connector, it doesn't. Furthermore: this happens with the front fan but not with the other 2 case fans.

    I find this odd: why should a case fan interfere with the CPU fan?

    Looks like someone is chillin' in the robe. That's the way to do it. I like to sit in my jedi robe in the morning when I start checking work emails.
