My System Specs

Default Mountain Mods H2Go

I just ordered on of these:


From NCIX. I like my Armor (it was a lot of work) but it's a huge beast and weighs a ton. I have to move it around once in a while if I want to play with RAM or CPUs and I'm wanting something smaller. I know this one is wider but it's shorter in both height and length. I will still be able to have two loops and two rads and fit all my hardware inside!

Watch for my build log in the next couple of weeks!

I always contemplated about this case but a few things stopped me

1) Larger coolers can have a bit of a squeeze in it
2) Motherboard placement and the way of which you plug your keyboard and stuff into faces the wrong way for my liking.

I see what you mean with that, but the way it will be set up for me will be fine for the cables.

As for the large coolers...I'm on all water, so no issues there.

Cool case, you will enjoy it. I like the one I modded myself, but the MM cases are great out of the box.

Your Chenbro mod is pretty sweet. The thing I like about this is the horizontal mobo. I've always liked that, but the MM Horizon is just too huge (and I would have to buy 2 PA120.3s). This one costs much less, takes up much less space and my current gear should fit nicely.

Yeah I like those cases, even the little one's are huge!!.. You can fit radiators in there without even modding, its awesome.
I would like one, too bad I can't afford it.

I will watch your worklog when it comes!! Good Luck
