    Too bad the tubing holes weren't at the top of the case at the rear. Then you could hide the one GPU tube along the top edge of the case.

    Does the triple not fit up top?

    Personally I think it looks beautiful and I would not change a thing. On that note if I were to do some thing I would just turn the top rad around if you can. Other than that it is beautiful!

    That kinda sucks. It almost looks like you could pull the bottom drive bay and get a dual rad down there, and there is very nearly enough room to slide that triple rad in the case itself, between the bays and the VGA...There's a few options, I suppose, but having two loops definitely doesn't help with tubing runs. :laugh:

    Or you could set the fans in pull, put the rad internal.

    That case looks like an Apevia X-Dreamer (probably version 1 or version 2, the newer version, looks a little different)

    Nope definitely an iCute it's model is ICUTE 8310SL-AL I know this becuase years ago I looked at it when I was wanting another case but I ended up getting the iCute 0509ULA - 4G - BS bigger fans and more of them

    Similar but that iCute doesn't have a full plexiglass front panel like xBruce's has... take a good look at the pic and you can see a small crack in the plexi on it.

    ** EDIT- doesn't really match the Apevia either??? lots of branding going on between case models- could be a house brand from somewhere or a clone of another case***

    the iCute has the same slanted vents at the top and the side panel is the same with the X pattern with the fan in the middle on top, but not on the side panel, however the front design isn't quite the same.

    taking more pics of the case (guess that'd help eh?) will edit when done.

    Here's some pics back when I was first building the system. I stripped the case to route cables and such.

    The Antec fans came with the case when i got it, but I dunno if they originally came with the case (I'm not the first owner) but i think it is most likely an iCUTE case.

    EDIT: At least we know it was made in China...

    Well I just did a quick search. And didn't find a Icute case that was identical. But I didn't find a Apevia either that was identical. T Icute case I found was more like his though. So I will sy it possibly is a Icute case. :toast:

    I had that case Bruce. It really has no brand name. I got mine from Geeks.com back in 2004 or so.

    Reminds me a lot of a case I bought back in ~2000 at a PC convention/sale. Lots of sellers from around the US selling stuff. Only real difference is only 1 USB up front (has same flip cover at bottom), no clear top or fan, and PCI retention is slightly different. Just a generic white case. Idk who made it but it has been around a while.

    Thanks very much. Been wondering what would fit in 500R top.

    So you have fans pushing mounted inside the case, and the rad inside the roof?
