    Hmmm, I've wanted to throw my hat in the ring in this thread for a while, but haven't done so...for no really good reason.

    So here:

    The importance of an illuminated CPU cooler cannot be understated:p

    I'll send it again if you need it, just let me know.

    Yeah, no need for more heat, I'm suffering enough as it is!

    should have them by the end of the week, you send them on the 16th, and it takes about a week, not including weekend

    Just need to paint it black on the inside now and get a different fan for the cooler so it matches better.

    That is the full tower Armor right? How do you like it? Been thinking about going to it from my HAF so I could fit the large XL-ATX boards if I decided to move that direction. Just concerned about the cooling ability of the case compared to the 932.

    Yeah, full tower Armor+. I haven't built anything using the HAF, but the Armor is well ventilated if you're doing air cooling, there are punch out holes on the back panel for tubing for a radiator if you're doing water cooling.

    Removable mobo tray is a nicety (don't know if the HAF has that), the only two real drawbacks are the top bezel is odd looking. It's a really weird design that probably should have been done more conservatively. The only other drawback is the only real drawback, which is that the quick release "locks" for the various slots are flimsy. They break at the drop of a hat. You can buy new ones from the thermaltake store, but it's annoying nonetheless and cost $3.00 a piece to replace. Other than those two things it's excellent. Intake fans can be put in all over the front of the front of the case, I think you can have a total of 3 140mm fans. Though I still only use the one in the bottommost couple of slots that came with the case.

    I really like the extra drive bays that can be put in the bottom of the case. Since I only use two drives, they occupy those two add-in bays. If you look beneath the 5 1/4 in bays, the space between the bottom of the case and the bottom of the rack for the 5 1/4 in bays is where the Larger HDD bay would fit in. It can hold 5 3.5in drives. I removed mine since I didn't use it, so now I can fit in a roughly 18in GPU...Though I don't think there are any that big, but if there were, it would fit. :laugh:

    I have loved this thing like few other comps I've owned. The only trouble is knowing Intel is ditching the Socket/Platform, or that at least it will get less attention in the future, upgradability would definitely make me happier.

    Figured since I was playing with a camera I would try it out here is a shot of my junker in a messed up state. Usually the door is on it but I tried adding another rad in a hurry. Oh and I was testing a old hdd as well. :laugh:

    No, no it cannot. I have decided to go with this one:

    :D

    On a totally unrelated note (and much to Jacob's disappointment, lol) I am SOOOO excited that Logitech just released a new trackman mouse with a BLUE BALL. I've been a 100% devoted trackman user for almost a decade... and I would sex the designer of this if he'd fit through my ethernet cable. XD
    [​IMG] fap fap fap! *LOVE*

    Maybe I throw one of these in that big open space under the hard drive... lol

    That CPU HSF looks like an Tuniq Tower 2 only problem with it is that it suffers the same problem as my tuniq tower 120 once installed you can't really see the blue glow of the fan unless you use a really ( scuse the profanity Phaewryn) fuck off bright LED Fan

    Right. And it gets good reviews for doing it's job. I'm going to have so much UV happening in that case, led is kinda pointless anyway. But still. I like that it HAS the blue leds. How easy is it to replace the fan that cooler comes with, with a different model/brand fan. I'd put a UV LED one in there, if it weren't a major pain in the ass. It all snaps off, right?

    4 little screws on top and slide the fan bracket out easy peasy then just unscrew the old fan screw on the new one replace in HS screw top on and plug it in and your done takes about ten mins tops

    This Is MY PC ATM Moment.... I used to not care how it looks. But lately I have had a really bad case of being OCD and almost every week I continue to make my Cable management look cleaner and cleaner. I am just the opposite from most of you guys :)

    [​IMG]

    I even just took and hid the bottom fan this weekend. Which I think cleans it up even more while still givning me great air flow. I even found away to keep a filter on it.

    Close up...

    Went a little crazy with the EVGA parts dont yah think? :)
