They're mac-handles cause they're rounded? It does have the "slide to open" feature after you remove the screw... Just no glass.
As an empty case, they don't flex. It's original shape is to have a gap in the middle of the handle for "feet". If it was rounded, or flat it would roll.
If you're looking for a compact feel, ie: shoe box size, a case without compromises is probably not the case for you...

All the d5 pumps are made by Liang. It doesn't matter who brands them as they are literally all the same as long as it is the same model.

ZZLEE: the 200mm rad will not find due to the i/o ports on the side. Think i said that on my first post but maybe not.

That Apogee Drive 2 is an all in one unit is it not?

Its the fan shroud that hits IO 200 mm fan should fit fine.


Rad fits with fill ports up top.

bent a few contact lead on fan shroud in mine hope they still work. ??

Apogee drive II is modular it has a Lang pump inside.

( I just ordered one on Ebay.com the Drive II )

Edit : go to swiftec site fore more on Apoge drive II

No res with Drive II you need a res and Rad ...

Apogee Drive II is a pretty awesome block. I bought one to use for an upcoming build. If you want to save some space I would definitely suggest one. Pair it w/ a cheap DDC-1T and you'll save some money too.
