Well, I would definitely recommend the HAF-X, the difference is like night and day in terms of acoustics, I just received my 120mm CM Excalibur fan for the video cards air duct (was using a 120mm Scythe fan before) and not only is this case hardly audible, but temps have droped significantly over my previous case.

There's been a couple of times that I've had to double check to see if my PC was on, because I can hardly hear it now, with my Tt case you could tell the PC was on even being outside my office, most of my fans are connected to my MB and programmed to go over 60% only when the temp sensors go over 25 degrees, so most of the time the fans sound is just barely perceptible.

I also like the aesthetics better for this case over the Tt, but that can be a matter of taste, I like the fact that even the case's interior is painted satin black, cable management is also much easier with this case, there's plenty of room to hide your cables, and the PSU shroud is really useful also.

The Tt has a removable MB tray, but weights a ton, the HAF-X is also heavy, and doesn't come with a removable tray, but comes with little wheels that make it way easier to move your PC around.

So far, I feel like this case has been a big improvement over the Armor+ I hope this make your decision easier, please let me know if you have any specific questions.
I do have the 932 and know what you talk about it being quite when having the fans plugged in to my board. Since I run my NH-D14 I run them at full speed to make sure the CPU stays below 60C even when gaming.

I was just thinking about moving to the TR mostly because it offers more room for larger "oversized" boards if I ever decide to move that way. I wasn't much concerned until you mentioned wiring. Will probably pass on the TR then.

Thanks for the info though. :toast:

Rebuild #67.2A underway! :banghead:

Will bolt cooling box to case and let tubings run straight down through bottom of case/top of cooling box instead.

Isn't this just a wonderful and lovely hobby to have? :D

Glad to see that you found out it wont work. I bet when you drill at the bottom, and work it threw that way, you can add back that MB loop.. how much feet of tubing was that?

I too would highly recommend the HAF-X I love mine!

I put my wireless keyboard in my lap, and place a mouse pad on the couch and away I go.
Nice! I have a Logitech DiNovo Mini keyboard/mouse combo, it's really small, and cannot be used for FPS game play as a regular keyboard/mouse combo due to its size, I bought it for when I had m HTPC in the bedroom, and using a full keyboard would've been akward, now that my HTPC is in the game room I'll probably get a new wireless keyboard and mouse, thanks for the advice and the pics! :toast:

Any recommendations for the keyboard and mouse?

Great setup man! :respect: :pimp:

Finally got my TX-NR609 today, Newegg made me an offer I couldn't refuse, the receiver and two Klipsch Reference RF-52 II B speakers for $799, almost $500 off the regular price! And all with free shipping :D



I'm using the Audyssey DSX feature for a "front wide" setup, using 5 front speakers for vertical sound dimension, plus 2 surround speakers, you would not believe the listening experience from this setup!



I removed the speakers screens for this shot, but I leave them on all the time, looks really tight! :rockout:

Please let me know what you guys think :)

I like the Microsoft sidewinder x6 as it is the width of my lap and the number pad is detachable, it also has programable macro keys I like that I can have keys to launch specific apps and games, and I use the Sidewinder x8 mouse it goes up to 4,000 DPI, and and the reciver is good for up to 15 feet and can recharge while you play if need be, but I get about 19 hours a full weekend friday - sunday evening of play before I need to charge it so it gets great battery life.

Nice and clean Fatal, can't even see the wires without straining my eyes :pimp:

I've just done pretty much the same thing with my Raven 2 - cable sleeving all over and getting the red and black theme looking good.
The 3 180mm bottom fans were hard to sleeve because of the switches in the top of the case. I removed the wires from the switches, sleeved then re-soldered them back on. Lots of work, but worth it :)

Again, for looks only I'll keep the the MB blocks out of the rig.
Neither the few inches of tubing nor the 7 angled fittings were the cause of the "slow" flow. The DCP 2.2 is just not that powerful.
Flow was good from the start from what I know now. Learning my little bits every day... :D

...can I ask for your advice if I ever decide to go for water cooling?
That is so not recommended! :shadedshu
Unless of course you like to do rebuild after rebuild after rebuild... :p

With a bit of masking I would get that ugly brown CrossFire bridge into the same red/black theme though... :slap: :D

Yes your right on the factor that the pump wasn't powerful enough only because of the length of the loop.

the EK, DCP 2.2 is only 2.2m so. Ruffly 7.2f is the length of the loop it will do.. Reason why I asked on the tube length is that it looks well over the 7.2f it needs.. So.. if you do what you say your going to do, to cut the loop down on tubing, you should still have enough "head" to get that mb top on.. If you wanted to.. That's all I'm going at when I asked the question

Sure bro, both the CM HAF-X and the Tt Armor+ are the same size, but the CM case offers more ways to do all your cable management, I also like the fact that the PSU is in the bottom instead of the top of the case, IMO that helps with the thermals too ;)

Hope you get the HAF-X, you won't be disappointed :cool:

http://img.techpowerup.org/110630/DSC00047.jpg

I'm using the Audyssey DSX feature for a "front wide" setup, using 5 front speakers for vertical sound dimension, plus 2 surround speakers, you would not believe the listening experience from this setup!

http://img.techpowerup.org/110630/DSC00052.jpg

I removed the speakers screens for this shot, but I leave them on all the time, looks really tight! :rockout:

Please let me know what you guys think :)
You are gonna think I'm crazy, but do yourself a favor and try ditching the front wide setup, and bi-amping your mains instead. You won't believe the difference it makes in sound quality in the mains, especially with stereo music.

Oh, temps are not the issue here. Going for looks only :eek:

Again, for looks only I'll keep the the MB blocks out of the rig.

Temps are always an issue, even if looks are primarily what you are after. Good looks are pointless if your hardware overheats. You still need to monitor your temps, no ifs, ands or buts.

And he's right about tubing length. It will help a great deal.

Looks good Fatal.. I really miss my crossfire 5870's... Oh, how great they were
Yeah I like the way crossfire it looks :toast:

Nice and clean Fatal, can't even see the wires without straining my eyes :pimp:

I've just done pretty much the same thing with my Raven 2 - cable sleeving all over and getting the red and black theme looking good.
The 3 180mm bottom fans were hard to sleeve because of the switches in the top of the case. I removed the wires from the switches, sleeved then re-soldered them back on. Lots of work, but worth it :)
I need to tidy up the back a bit will look into sleeving those wires.

Oh, temps are not the issue here. Going for looks only :eek:

Again, for looks only I'll keep the the MB blocks out of the rig.
Neither the few inches of tubing nor the 7 angled fittings were the cause of the "slow" flow. The DCP 2.2 is just not that powerful.
Flow was good from the start from what I know now. Learning my little bits every day... :D

That is so not recommended! :shadedshu
Unless of course you like to do rebuild after rebuild after rebuild... :p

But you certainly know how to put a cool looking rig together! :toast:

With a bit of masking I would get that ugly brown CrossFire bridge into the same red/black theme though... :slap: :D
I just saw the CrossFire bridge masking. I see you can paint it or use heat shrink will have to see which looks better. Hell really just long as its not looking the way it does :laugh:
