No one seems to build in these, unfortunately. I suppose it could be because it's bit pricey, weighs a ton, or just isn't what most folks are in to right now. I think it's a classic case design, myself. I love the 90-degree rotation of the mobo, the aluminum unibody, the whole thing. I was really torn over whether to get the window or not. The minimalist look without it is pretty cool too.
For those curious about the choice of the 1070 Ti in SLI, here's the story. I bought this a while back, thinking I would just get one card, and I didn't want to spring for a 1080. When I saw this card on "sale," I knew it was perfect for the case. As I started on this recently, though, I just kind of caved to my case-crush and bought another to match. Prices have actually gone down some on these. They work great in SLI and I like the way they look in the build.
I got the Nvidia SLI bridge instead of the MSI version because the MSI didn't work as well with the build aesthetically. I didn't realize till I got the Nvidia that the green plastic strip across the center didn't change colors. Not for lack of trying on my part. First, I tried silver spray paint. That flaked right off. Then, a black sharpie. That came right off. I soaked it in red die for 2 days straight, and that came off. (I included a picture of the end result. I think it might be indestructible, but I'm afraid to try to burn it. Does anyone remember the Happy Fun Ball commercial sketch on SNL years ago? "Do not taunt happy fun ball.") I finally beat a tactical retreat and just filled the gap with black silicone sealant. Unless they were building in neon green, I have a hard time imaging why anyone would want that color or why Nvidia thought anyone would. I know, their logo.
About the case, Silverstone used red and yellow wiring in the big black fans at the bottom of the case. So, I had to extricate the wires and wrap them with electrical tape. The cable area is also an issue because it's only .5 inches deep for the most part. Fortunately, I got the braided PS cables and I was able to splay them out to allow the door to close properly.
I was very curious to see if temps would be an issue with this case. It uses a positive pressure concept, with those giant intake fans pushing air out just the top 120mm exhaust and some vent holes. Since I got an unlocked Intel chip, I knew the processor would run hot. But with the case pressure feeding the pull/push fan arrangement, I think you really get the most out of the H80i, because the CPU temps ended up being reasonable. The rest of the case temps seem okay too. I did delid and reseal the 7700k, which made the same 10C improvement I've seen before. It's a good system for CPU overclocking, actually. I haven't tried overclocking the cards yet.
One other note about the case. The site and manual say it's incompatible with long cards like the MSI Duke, but I found you could take out the middle fan support bracket and create enough space to fit a couple of 12.5" cards, even with the wide gap between the slots. There's nothing securing the fan with the bracket out, but it's got nowhere to go and it's too big and low RPM to cause any audible vibration.
The 1200W platinum PS is overkill, obviously. I had an 850 W gold PS installed, but then I got kind of carried away with the silver and black theme, and I decided to use the only "silver" PS I had. Room to grow, I guess.
I'm sure that's enough out of me. If you have any questions, I'm more than happy to answer in the comments. I really enjoyed this build and learned a lot as usual. I hope you enjoy the pics.
Now, there must be an old HP to resuscitate around here somewhere...
