    Case With No Glass: Recommendations?

    Be Quiet is nice, Mine shattered and they sent me a steel side panel no questions asked. I will now be a shill for them lol
  2. Hey All, Yeah I understand it's the nature still just sucks. I wanted to give a update on this. Last Monday they asked for a pic which i supplied. Wednesday the Steel Side Panel arrived no questions asked. After I removed the standoff's that the glass side panel used to keep it in place the new side panel slid in effortlessly. I'm not sure about you all but I don't this i have ever dealt will a issue so easily. I will be buying from this company time and time again.
  3. I only bought this cause it was cheaper then the other at the time. I'm asking them to send me the normal side panel I already emailed Be Quiet in order to see if i can get a metal side panel. First and Last time i buy a Glass Panel even if it's cheaper.
  4. This weekend I planned on installing a dedicated sound card in my system. First thing to do is unplug all the cables and pull the system out. Easy, peasey, lay PC on a flat surface, Done. Remove the screws holding the glass in place. Done Carefully lift Glass Side panel off of PC. Done Rotate Glass panel from Horizontal position to Vertical making sure to clear area first using 2 hands. Watch said Glass Panel shatter in your hands before you get to set it down Now you might think hey you must have hit something. No, Nothing was around me at the time. I was actually bending down to set it against the desk that i normal place it.. Word to the wise. BE SUPER CAREFUL and it still might break.
  5. Are you looking for 1080p, 1440p, 4k? 100, 120 or 144hz?

    Unfortunately I didn't see it in the case manual but i will check again.
  9. Good Morning, I just completed my newest build over the weekend, I'll post my thoughts and concerns below the specs. Be Quiet Dark Base Pro 900 Asus Z370 TUF Plus Intel i7-8700k Noctua NH-D15 G.skill Ripjaw V 16Gb EVGA 1070 FTW 2 Samsung 850 EVO 250GB 3 Samsung 850 EVO 500 GB 1 Samsung 850 Pro 512 GB Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 750 W PSU Now, I'm a older Gent that has been building computers since the 8088 days. This is my first build since I build my i7-2600k in 2011. Even back then i wasn't to worried about cable management vs getting it done. The power supply I purchased barely allowed me to get the 4+4 cable to the top of the motherboard on a mid tower Cooler Master HAF 912. My experiences with the new build, My first thoughts when the Case arrived was OMG this is a beast. I actually had to rearrange my shelves for it to fit. Power supply: Installing the power supply was easy but confusing. I figured that the bracket for the power supply would simply slide on, this was not the case. The bracket had to be gentle forced into place as it's a snug fit. I enjoyed the power supply being completely modular this allowed me to not have the cable always in the way. Motherboard: Easy as 1, 2, 3, I have never in the past had a computer case already have the ATX standoffs attached. This just allowed me to slide the IO Shield and slide the Motherboard in place securing it with the screws. Drive Bay: This was a joy to work with, the only thing that could have made it better was not having to use screws to support the drives. The only issue I had with this case is that I was trying to figure out the best way to run the cables and power for the SSD's to make them as clean as the rest of the case. If anyone has images of how they ran theirs with this case that would be helpful.
  10. Mad Props to you. Love the calcifer you made from Howls

    Where to Start

    @CableMod I'm wondering if you can help on this. I sent an email to you all but no response yet. Are the CableMod SE-Series XP2 / XP3 / KM3 / FL2 ModFlex The proper cables for the Seasonic FOCUS Plus Series SSR-750FX 750W 80+ Gold ATX12V & EPS12V Full Modular PSU?

    Where to Start

    OK, I just worry, My old PSU didn't even give me enough length for the 4+4 pin to reach the motherboard. Admittedly it was a kingwin lazer

    Where to Start

    I just purchased a Be Quiet Dark Base Pro 900 (say that fast 5 times) along with a Seasonic FOCUS Plus Series SSR-750FX 750W 80+ Gold ATX12V & EPS12V Full Modular PSU, What I'm trying to figure out is how I get the lengths of the cabling I need before the equipment arrives so that I can have the cables here when I move my current setup into the new one. Anyone have experience in cabling the 900 and know what lengths you used and what did or didn't work? I've use google and I can find nice looking build but no one i have seen gives the lengths they used.

    Be Quiet *New Case* how often

    Ok, I just purchased the 900, I just hope they wait awhile for a updated 900
