GhostFaceKilla why do you mount the PSU facing upwards especially when you have a sound card blocking most of you air flow?

And Morgoth I can't wait to see the final product also do you like the band Morgoth http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morgoth_%28band%29?

It used to house:
i7 950
X58 mobo
6G ram
SLI Geforce GTX480's

using that watercooling.

I sold it all, I'll rebuild with Ivybridge/kepler parts soon.

And yeah, I am into metal, I don't buy their CD's, so I guess I'm not a big fan

Firstly that particular PSU cant be loaded fan down in that case. The fan grill is raised and the support brackets in the case that the PSU rests on are in the middle of the PSU area not on the edges like in many other cases - so it wont sit properly. I actually prefer it facing up as it suck in less dust to the PSU than if mounted on the bottom.

Secondly, the space under the case (like for many cases) under the PSU grill is VERY small - it is actually smaller than the gap between the PSU and the Soundcard ;-) Also remember that traditionally PSU's were mounted on top of the case fan side down to help with exhausting hot air. They are designed for this purpose.

Thirdly that PSU doesnt need much air - on normal usage the fan doesnt kick in at all (a BIG benefit of the PSU). It only kicks in when the PSU hits a certain load. Thus for most of the time the fan isnt even working. Plus if you notice my case has LOTS of airflow around it - this keeps the PSU cool as well.

Fourthly, I have a fan mounted on the side which blows air directly into the GPU and the PSU area - this further keeps it coool all the time as well as providing extra air pushed into it when the PSU hits load.

In any event the soundcard does not fully cover the fan at all - one side is pretty much clear and there is a good bit of space between it and the soundcard. Again the case has massive air flow so there are no dramas with heat.

Its not 'ideal' but I have tested it and have noticed zero difference in temps anywhere though I still monitor stuff regularly. I used to have a Antec PSU in there that didnt have any top or bottom fan - just a rear exhaust one that sucked air through. Was a great PSU totally - however it was noisy - this PSU is literrally dead silent for most of my usage time - ie when on the net or writing an assignment the fan doesnt even kick in. MASSIVE benefit for me but might not be so good for those who have more of a 'hot case'.

Of course one other issue with that mother board is the lack of accessible pci-e slots. The only other one is covered up by the video card up top.

i think if there's a case you want to get for WC setup, this would be the one, mainly cause of the amount of space inside the case. the h100 that i have hooked up in there is sitting top back and i was just able to fit a 140mm fan i the top (its offset a little).

i think in the previous thread i asked about water cooling a crossfire setup, and you might have recommended this case and its perfect lol

think ill be using this case for a very long time lol

Photos of my rig and workspace:










Nothing too special here. And before you ask, yes, the mousepad is mounted sideways: it's a personal preference; I don't move my hand around that much while gaming.

Here be my rig.



In test bench mode. Complete with my old 19" Sony CRT I painted black 10 years ago.



On the old desk.



The new home made desk, that I haven't yet cut back a bit, tidied up and painted.

Do you mind getting some photos of the cases internals if possible? In particular the fan mount positions and also psu mount positions (I'm fairly sure it has top and bottom yeah?) and anything else that could be relevant for fitting a larger WC setup? You don't have to post them in here, just host them and pm me the links :) Or make a thread about it, I'm sure it may be of interest to people other than me. Its hard finding good cases for big WC setups these days.

I love this case. Had it for a few years now. I'm not even sure what model it is now. But it was raved about in one of the Atomic issue's.

Likes: It's very roomy and very sturdy. I like how there is a separate compartment for the psu, hdd's and ssd's.

Dislikes: Very heavy. Also I like to have positive pressure in the case, like what Ashton wrote an article on about recently. And this case makes that, very hard, not even worth trying for me.
But yeah, built like an A1 abrams. I think, like the old Sony monitor, this will be a component that lasts me a decade or more. Also I used 2x psu's for a while, so if that's something you do
then this case is perfect for it.

Looks like a TJ07 or something to me, very similar atleast.

I'd be looking at it for watercooling, heaps of space down the bottom ^.^
