    as final finish i suggested this pieces:

    1x BitFenix 8-Pin EPS12V 1x BitFenix 24-Pin ATX RED and 2x BitFenix 6-Pin PCIe RED/Black

    to get that blue PCB covered and stabilize the GPU PCB my personal add would be:

    [​IMG]

    and

    Corsair AF120 Performance Edition Twin Pack

    ^^ Corsair please do this for the GS800 PSU too !!

    the grey fans which where included had LED holders but the hole is not drilled
    do this Fans have LED holes ?

    the case is almost same as shown here... and yeeah it would fit,
    i cannot guaranty that you can center the rad but atleast you should be able to mount it that way:

    [​IMG]

    mainboard should be independent if they do not have huge Mosfet Heatsinks sticking up, since they all get mounted on same position @ top

    EDIT:
    if you check the upper mounting holes from the X3, there still fits a regular fan between, and the radiator isn´t that thick like the build in upper fan, and usually the mounting holes are close at PCB end.

    [​IMG]

    but seriosly the case sux,

    • upper air flaps clatter
    • flaps can only be open / close
    • front I/O Top is only a sticker no brushed metall/aluminum


    you can get better cases in that price range.

    hope that help´d ya a bit

    Yes it has to be removed. I own the full size XPredator, theres plenty of cable routing too.

    Unfortunately im gonna have to pull my mobo and check for board flexing. This cooler on average runs at 41 degrees... in my specs...
