So I decided to make a little LAN build with my old 660's and some other components I had lying around. I decided to up it a bit an put my 780's in here, I upgraded the PSU to a HX1050 and am planning on making it something nice.
 
Here is the (new) part list: http://de.pcpartpicker.com/p/M4MgrH
 
 
Here are the parts that arrived in the first package. I had to wait 2 weeks extra for the case because it was damaged during shipping.

After assembling it, I took it for a test drive, running butter smooth.

UPDATE

Here is everything actually built in to the case, I did my best to cable manage it as good as possible, but I decided to buy some sleeved extensions for the front panel connectors.

I replaced the fans with Noctua Redux series on the CPU cooler and a NF-F12 IndustialPPC in the front.

Im against that case, the airflow is pathetic, it comes with a single exhaust fan on the side panel, its not very nice to build in. I recommend the n200 instead,

Since he's already ordered it seems infinitely pointless to recommend a different case.

I don't like the look of the N200, I do however like the look of the core series, the Core 3000 is just to big.

I just have a serious hatred for the core 1000 due to it having not cable routing and a single fan on a side panel as well, one thing i can tell you is that if that case was sold from another company no one would buy it.

Cases are up to the people building as they have lots of different looks aesthetically, also it is up to him to decide, don't have an argument over a case

Look at the partpicker , he has got the armor kit.

I just woke up and I'm not firing on all cylinders yet I missed the armor kit down at the bottom.

I don't really mind it not having cable routing, I'm using a half modular PSU, so it's not much of a problem.

I have an RM650 laying around! That 850 is like so overkill for 2 660's! 

Ow and I would either drop the CPU cooler and get a case with a window! 
Or mod that case to get a plexiglass in it! (not to hard to do!;p)

550w seems a bit small for an SLI system

When folding on the PC, the PSU fan only spins about 50% of the time. If I do the calculation, the system should only draw about 450W under load.

not as much headroom as I would personally like to have but if you're comfortable with it then there isn't an issue.

It's actually a really decent case for the price, especially if you mod it a bit.

 

For exhaust you've got the back 92mm and from the start you will need a PSU which will act as an exhaust so generally another 120mm, and if you're willing you could open up the from so that you have 2x120mm in the front which all in all is more than enough.

 

I've built 4 computers with the Core 1000 and they end up looking great and has great performance/size for an m-atx, check this one out: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?286013-fractal-core-1000-mod-black-metal-power

 

You can ignore all the cosmetics and you have a simple mod. I usually end up using the 120mm intake for an AIO cooler radiator or i flip out like last time and put a 360 rad on top of the case:P
