    Sell it now and take my money! I need this for a build for my sister, might even pick up a second for myself.

    I wish this was micro-ATX and made from aluminum like a Lian Li...
    Anyway, I remember I seen a engineering sample a few months ago and the "feet" are made from a rubbery material and it is big enough for a Corsair H100 on top.

    I like the external looks of alot of BitFenix cases, this one doesn't disappoint either.

    Oh man, i was thinking about getting a Fractal Design Arc Mini for a mAtx build with a H100 but i might go mitx with an H100 and use this case!

    This case
    Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe
    Intel 3770K
    Corsair H100
    Asus GTX 670 CU II Top

    Drool!

    Haha nice!

    Yeah i'm certainly going to consider this setup. At the moment i have a Lian Li V1010B which is an EATX case but i want to go with a smaller size pc but don't wanne give in on performance.

    This might be the perfect candidate for the job!

    Yes, but then you can't use the Silverstone short cables they really help make a case look clean and it helps air flow for these small cases.

    I don't think you need to change the fans either, maybe for the H100

    Thats true, will have to wait and see what reviews say. If they have good enough fans than I would keep the stock ones.

    Delta6326,

    Good looking build, but I would save some money and go with 2600K or 2500K.

    I guess you are planning on removing the optical drive bay since there's not one one on your list, and you're going to mount the H100 up top.

    A lot of games require their media in the drive to run. How does one get around that?

    I don't have any games that require media, i don't buy games on dvd. I only buy games on steam & origin. My steam & origin folder is like 406 gb lol.

    You still have CD's? :wtf:

    I seriously haven't used a CD for years. Haven't missed it since :toast: MBA doesn't have a cdrom, I took the cdrom out of my Sager, mailed it home. With steam, why do they even sell games on dvd anymore? Actually, where would you buy such games these days? :eek:

    I will be using Steam.

    But if I do need to use a DVD for something I will use a external drive.

    When/if I get this it won't be till later this year as I'm waiting for a specific games, pCars and Borderlands 2.
