    dismantling the case is tricky, due weak round plastic clip system

    this case has plently of mounting holes ...... i moved it all the way to the window side so the mainboard has enough room (ram, 8 pin mobo connector / fan)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    enough room :rockout:, even with the huge Dominators RAM Fins


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    RAM Fan could be attached too

    Awesome build! One question, do you have the hydro fans pulling cool air into the case from outside? Or do you have it taking the air from the inside and pushing it out?

    Sorry for that m8, i leave em in push mode, we´ll see what the Temps say on load,
    else i need to pickup 4x Scythe Slip Stream 120 mm Slim Case Fan (12,5 mm height, regular 25mm height) to go push / pull (mounted to rad) if i leave the RAD centered
    i don´t think they fit quite well under the roof slats to go on 2x regular(RAD) 2x slim(Roof)

    hope i cleared that now :p

    Very nice build indeed, all components are good 9apart from the DVD burner :p)

    Will you be pairing another 7950 with that 7950 in the future?

    cable chaos :laugh:

    [​IMG]

    the only drawback on the mobo so far is that i have to loop the USB 3.0 across the case to the outside :banghead: since it has no onboard connector
    the mainboard only supports 2 USB 3.0 on the rear panel

    [​IMG]

    i don´t like stuff sticking outside a case.... stuff can break off :mad:

    ahaha my case has external usb3 connectors so it loops the same! I did think about ripping them out and using some simple usb2 internal ones

    # change the "XPREDATOR" to a red LED maybe
    [​IMG]


    i need to get 2x Bitfenix Spectre 140mm for bottom intake / rear outtake

    [​IMG]

    and some artic silver ceramique 2

    the Audio/HD Audio needs some fix on the short end too, also the fan wires of the door ........
    only stupid thing on the PSU, as soon u switch it off on rear , it looses the color state........... (switch LED Blue/white/RED)
    and you can pop off the blue frame arround the PSU, i wonder why they didn´t add white/red too if i can switch LED colors

    :toast: brilliant man! you should of mounted the psu up the other way and had it red etc.... then it would look more flashy and prettyyyy! theres plenty of air entering that area to keep temps down!
