Nothing fancy at the moment as I'm not working and have to save some money up, but once I'm working again more parts will come.

I will be watercooling this case but like I said need more stuff.

I wonder if your board yells out for help and hears echoes. HUGE case! Will be nice with water :)

You definitely need a smaller motherboard. That case is so tiny you'll have a hard time fitting anymore than than an ITX motherboard in it with a radiator.
/Sarcasm

A nice clean looking build (like everything I've seen in the 800D so far). This seems to be the new favourite case of Hardware Canucks!

I'll have one soon. Loved it the moment I saw it. I even like the fact it's steel. Might add lead to the bottom as well....

(soon for me = within the year... really need to clean some things off my plate first)

lol rj, I can already see this coming. After your nice vacation, hmm I really want a Physx card, well guess I gotta get that Corsair case! Oh, the GT300 series came out too, ah we'll just add 3 of those to the cart, what's the big deal? The bill doesn't come for at least 4 weeks! That's long enough to come up with an excuse for the wife!

Same story, different day eh?

I looked at that board and was very tempted. If it wasn't for the stupid layout of sata ports I would have grabbed it.

That looks HILARIOUS with the mATX board in it.
