Xine if you are around any assistance would be appreciated.

That being said, it looks like the Cooler Master Storm Stryker will fit the X60 without issues out of the box. There is 70mm of clearance between the inside top of the case and the upper edge of the motherboard as well it will accommodate push/pull if needed by adding 2 more 140mm fans under the top mesh. The reported fan mount spacing is also the desired 15mm.

Problem is, the look of this case isn't exactly my cup of tea even if it has loads of desirable features.. I may be able to learn to live with it and will have to go see it in person again. Still I prefer the clean lines of the Switch 810 is I had a choice.

The search continues.

Hopefully he gets back to you, I'm still digging around myself to see if I can find something that works for you.

I would actually have to check with my Production Manager on that. I've emailed him to see what the status is, but I believe all Switches as of November of last year were being produced with the revised top panel, the question is, will you get one or an original one that was stocked at the place that you buy it from. Additionally, our new Phantom 630, and the Phantom 820 would both fit the Kraken X60 without issue. They were both produced after we adopted 15mm fan spacing in our chassis.

Once I hear back from Rob, I'll let you know.

Canada Computers nearby me said they have no problem to look at the serial numbers of the Switch 810's they have in stock to make sure I get one with the revised panel. I would need a serial number range to look for though.

Btw, the Phantom 630 looks like an amazing case! Too bad it may not be available for purchase before my build.......... What's the clearance between the internal top plate of the 630 and the top edge of the motherboard? Kraken x60 Push/Pull anyone?
