Consider this spot reserved... for when my illusive case finally arrives.
Case arrived Monday.
IMG_0132_zps130d9e3f.jpg
Was not expecting it to come in a retail box.
IMG_0133_zpseda8d35b.jpg
Whats inside?
IMG_0134_zps3a431d91.jpg
Securely Packaged, Well done Tt.
Drum roll....
IMG_0136_zps02b10d6c.jpg
Sweet case. Now lets get it filled.
DSC_0394_zps3e15d002.jpg
Side by side with old case(note both sides of the new case are removed.) Look at all the dust in there.
DSC_0395_zpscf7cb492.jpg
I started by stripping it down and routing all the fan cables..
26845efa-f655-427b-8e44-da2326556a44_zps
And i discovered a rather irritating design flaw.
DSC_0398_zpsd5aa46dd.jpg
Anyone see it? You have to remove the front fan to access the quick tool-less 3.5 bay... It slides out to the front, not the back. there is actually a tab there that stops it going backwards. Brain fart someone.
DSC_0399_zpsb13cc2ef.jpg
I forgot to take any pics of the hardware going in, but here is the cable management mess i had to route.
DSC_0400_zps45d98b1e.jpg
Let me step back a sec, i did take one pic from putting the hard ware in. And it highlights another problem, and I'm not sure if the fault lies with Asus or Tt. My mobo I/O plate did not fit, it had to take pliers and crip all four sides drastically to fit. I say drastically, probably about 4mm. Still, unacceptable and annoying. And while trying to force the plate in before crimping it, it popped and i buried the corner tab in my finger.
DSC_0402_zps49a92bb6.jpg
I bled like a stuck pig...
Anyway, almost done now. And i realized i missed something.
DSC_0402_zps49a92bb6.jpg
Almost forgot to put the CPU fan back on.
And thats all the pics i have at the moment, will get some finished pics taken and up soon.

Your telling me. Though interestingly i have only gained about 2 degrees on the cpu and 6-8 on the gpus. And i think that was more dust removal than anything.

I've used Delta 120x38mm super-high speed as case fans before, while they cool like nothing else, the noise is just unbearable. Even on a controller, the drone gives you a headache after an hour.
