I bought one off of Canada Computers and received it this week.

It is a pretty big case. It is slightly taller than my 800D and of coarse wider as well.

Haven't had the time yet to build it. Well just waiting for the weekend. From just unboxing it and looking inside I think I will really enjoy this case. The look and finish is also lot better than the 800D.

Will post pics when ever I get around to switching my cases.

That's a spectacular case. Even on just air, it'd be tempting just for how clean it looks and the cable management. I particularly like the velcro strap idea and the SSD mounts. I'm very impressed. Hopefully it follows the corsair route and we start seeing some smaller and modified cases building on this one's strength (Enthoo Secondo, Enthoo Derde, or however they'll name them).

I need something that can house 3 thick XSPC RX rads - a RX120 , RX240 and a RX360 to be exact. yes i know thats a odd rad setup but the first 2 i got really cheap 2nd hand lol.

wondering if this case can house those rads without issues.

depending on water temps after adding in a R9-290x full coverblock may even require another rad although probably not and if so not a super thick one this time and i may just get a 4x120 or something instead of messing with smaller rads.

You should be able to do that. I just ordered one along with 2 RX360s... Damn watercooling bug. My wallet hates me. My wife hates me. But I love my computer.

I have checked it out and I wanted it but there is no way of ordering it here in Spain... and to bring it over from germany with ports and all then its way over 300 euros....!

So for that money then I have a 900D that is bigger and can hold more rads etc. So I guess I will go with the 900D.... @akirez64...... I have to hide the 900D when it comes from my wife.... she will kill me!

Just got 250$ Via xmas gift Via Envelope with Instructions to spend it not save. I'm looking so hard @ this case right now lol. only problem is if I buy the case I will need to buy Entirely new tubing - Rez - Pump and Fittings in order to do the case justice and make it presentable as it should be.

Perhaps even would need to rethink my Rad situation with this much Expandability .. I could swear I get OCD about stuff like this once I start I'd prob end up with new CPU block and everything to go with it.

Right now I have a P280 with rad's externally mounted and a Dual Bay Rez with it all sitting down hidden beside my desk Functional but not very nice to look on at all.

Sigh what to do what to do.

You only live once. Why not buy stuff that makes you happy and that in the end you can be proud of, ya know? This is by far the best mass-production case on the market for water cooling, hands down. Though, they did take several queue's from NZXT (fan mounting, filter mounting, drive cage, ssd mounts), I feel that they have one hell of a case.

So, if you're thinking about it, think long and hard, and in the end, if this is what would make you happy, then go for it!
