    I was kinda surprised too. I'd checked measurements and was pretty sure it would fit but was a bit nervous when I opened the Noctua HSF. That's one big fat piece of metal. I'm pretty sure there's only 1/8th of an inch of clearance between the tips of the heatpipes and the side door.

    Anyone have some good recommendations for a 120 mm fan mount that would fit in 3x 5.25" drive bays? I'd like to add another intake fan if possible to the upper chamber.

    Fair enough people say the HAF-X is ugly, it's not sexy but it's far from ugly.

    The vulcan is for people into that kinda style, the FT03 is simple and for people that perfect something straight to the point

    No need to explain man, I was more or less poking a bear with a stick;)
    This is why I don't advise cases. I could see you on every aspect inside the case, but if the looks aren't your thing, its all a waste of breath.


    Just to tease and keep the conversation on point, what about the TJ08-E?

    Ugly and doesn't do the TJ series justice.

    Nice rig, but your card is really sagging! It looks like it's about to break!

    they may still work fine now but by letting them continue to sag causes unnecessary stress points on the cards which will exacerbate any expansion/contraction the components and their respective solder joints go through which will start to cause cracks

    O_O I would put something in a drive bay to help hold it up. That IS going to snap soon.

    Thanks, yeah you don't need any more lighting than the fans give off... it's just enough.

    Cheers, have to say i'm loving the cooler on this card.

    It's REALLY quiet coming from a reference card and the temps are quite a bit lower although they never got particularly high before.
