ooops, didn't even notice that
well at least we agree on that one
Its a great case for the price. I'm going to build into it for my GF's rig most likely.
I did the same with my 590. That grill is seriously restrictive.
Yeah, and if you put a R4 in that spot. Get ready for some annoying air restricting noises. Sounds like a car window barely open at 60MPH. Soooo annoying. (Mine did this before I got a fan grill, now it sounds normal. Yay!)
Perhaps, but it's very narrow. I bet large tower coolers don't fit well.
Yeah I bought a V3 case for $40 as my 2nd rig (cruncher) and for a cheap case it's not that bad. My only con is the little too no space at the top of the mobo.
@T77-- can you post more pics of your cable management? that's also my complaint with my V3
Is the V3 a good Case ?
Better than the Asgard ?
[ PS : R.I.P. Ronnie. ]
Cable management with this is great, but keep in mind I am no stranger to the arts of C/M
This shot was with old specs>
But remember, like I said before...You might have a difficult time mounting fans to the top vents due to this cases lack of space. As you can see in the pic below- the ram clips get in the way. Also the rad of my H50 barely clears the ram clips (see 2nd pic below). If you don't mind the noise, Scythe Slipstream fans work very well as top fans and wont interfere with the mobo. Overall this case is great quality for value! This case has plenty of places to mount fans, so not having top fans is fine because the heat that does rise will just flow through the vent anyway.
Looks damn nice, but . . .
That made me confused for about a minute
TYPO I fixed it!
lol Either way, it looks good. That's why I was confused, thinking "wait . . . he's a stranger to cable management, but did that?"
I know right?!
I was thinking "damn, he'll be chopping cables and soldering 'em to the back of the motherboard in no time!"
Nice looking motherboard you've got there
she's a beauty
WOW T77 that is a NICE setup you have there.
t77's cable management is top notch
He is also addicted to the Corsair H50
Since you are in oc, CA and i'm in san diego i think it would be awesome if you came and did your thing on my pc
seriously - you should do a how to guide
You know if I had a another reason to go down to San Diego, I really would stop by and be happy to do the c/m on your case.
@ t77-- DRATS!!!! if only I've seen your work two weeks earlier I would've never sold my CX400W! I thought it was impossible to CM it in my V3. Very beautiful work!
The GF and I moved things around a bit today. Got another shelf too, now my PC isn't on top of it's old box anymore! Yay!
looking much better, Ed!
Thanks. The room feels much bigger now, and I feel like I have my own little "area" of space. It's nice.
Looks very neat and organized now bro You and your GF did a good job
