I like it all but the single monitor. I mean why have two GTX 780 and only rock one monitor at 1080? Heck I can't go less then two monitors myself. You could have gone bigger or multi...
The fans don't fit because of the ram? Every think about lower profile ram, or putting the radiator in the top of the case in the compartment and then putting the fans under. However I do have a similar issue with my case that I cant work around. If I had push pull it would not work because the ram slots themselves would be in the way. I do like the Pull configuration over push though because the dust is easier to clean because you do not need to take the fans off to clean it. my case is http://pcpartpicker.com/part/thermaltake-case-ca1a500m1wn00
I could buy a 4930k., but that's all I am saying.
I am not a fan of it, however his new ram won't fit so he just got the H100i because it's on sale and I recommended it. Oh and did you notice the bent fin on the CPU cooler? That's how he bought it...
Yes, mind you it's not really HP making there own stuff. It's totally Asetek cooler, and it's not a standard size. The rad is smaller then a 120mm rad but I did not measure.
Oh and the guy just got 3 16GB ram kits. I hope they play nice. I told him to get a single kit with what he wanted, and heck I sent him a link and he still did not listen.
Oh and the guy does not even need all the hard drive space he does not use much of it and everything he does is backed up and encrypted on to his home server.
Sorry I understand the reference. Most people have only ever seen movies and cartoons and things like that and think that Frankensteins bride was a different book all together. So I understand where you are coming from.
Sorry took me so long to respond, my son had appendectomy and we have had a crazy couple weeks.
You are mistaken The top supports 2 120/140 mm fans or up to one 240 mm rad no bigger, that's why you would need to mod for the Kraken X60 280 mm rad.
Oh and I agree with marhault18, it being flimsy is not really the case. However side panels like most cases are a bit, but other then that it feels solid to me.
To game at 4k you would need no less then two 780s recommended by Nvidia. Heck I think AMD recommends two R9 290s. On top of that there is like only one good 4k monitor out there that is good for gaming with a nice refresh rate and its like 24 inches and a TN monitor.
I would still go with win 7 over 8/8.1 unless of course I had a nice touch screen that matched my other screens in size.
I like mine a lot. The only thing I would change on it, is have some more places to tie down on the back side of the motherboard tray towards the back of the case and maybe have 140 mm fans options in the front and the bottom
I do agree on this as I have mine on the floor. However I also live in the high desert and yes that makes it even more dusty.
I have been out of commission for a bit so this is a late response. I put my old system in this newer case partly because my old case was well over 10 years old. I liked the look and the docking bay. oh and I have used the bay now 3 times to help with other peoples computers. It now has one good scratch on the plastic there.
my cables are just out of the way and don't block the bottom fan. My PSU is a Thermaltake TR2 600w, so smaller and not modular like yours.
The door open would definitely help the airflow or just any nice SP fan I would imagine.
I am about to install a smaller H55 AIO in my system so I don't have the issue with the top 5.25 drive bay. However will it fit better if you flipped it the other way with the hoses on the back instead of the front. Maybe if you used the 5.25 HDD/SSD cradle in the top 5.25 bay that may fit and help with your airflow as well on the front intakes.
Does not bother me as it is hidden
The stock fans are only 1000 RPM and meant to be quiet so any upgrade would help. However they work if you don't have to much going on in your case. However you had one fan that was noisy, that sucks, I would probably notify Thermaltake and see if they would replaced just the one fan if I was not already putting other fans in my system. Mine make hardly any noise as it is.
on the whole filters on the top. I am not sure maybe, so the top of your case looks nice and without dust buildup. Some people just put way to many intakes everywhere. I Have a friend at work that put 2 intakes on the top of his case... I tried to tell him that what he was doing was silly and he had four intakes and one exhaust and they dont flow in his system well. Hell his air cooled CPU heat sink has two fans and they blow up to where his fans are blowing down...
I have been so busy I missed you'r response. I am glad to see this is in the works. Oh and thank you for the response.
Nice, NZXT has some great parts too. I like to see this sort of thing happen. I would like to get the NZXT G10 installed on my GPU, because I hate how loud it gets. There is no place on PCPartPicker where the G10 fits.
I got this case through amazon.com from another seller. This case was awesome with its rich features. The removable filters the removable drive cage the window is nice in that you don't see the 5.25 bays or the 3.5/2.5 inch bays. The case feels well made and not cheap. The cable management was nice however I would have liked some tie down points on the back side of the tray towards the back of the case where I routed my 8pin power and my HD audio cable. I will post pics when I show my build.
I looked at it and the PSU was a Zion 700w. Not really any better but it works just fine.
I was going off memory. I was not 100% sure on power supple it's probably cheap. It's the one IBuyPower slapped in it so I will change it if I am wrong on Wednesday. I do remember that it's SLI ready and 700w. The two 7790 GPUs were on sale and performs close to one 7970. If you read the last issue of maximum pc they compare twto 7790s to a 7970 and a GTX780 and its pretty close in performance they also compared two GTX660 TI in the article. FYI the two GTX660 TI in SLI beat the GTX780 In a ton of tests if I do remember correctly.
