There is no plan to mod the case, but I might do some wrapping down the line.

 

 

Status: Scan.co.uk still havent gotten the case into stock, so guess it will be a bit longer then planned before I get the case.

That's a strange loop if i ever saw one


Specs: 4790k | Asus Z-97 Pro Wifi | MX100 512GB SSD | NZXT H440 Plastidipped Black | Dark Rock 3 CPU Cooler | MSI 290x Lightning | EVGA 850 G2 | 3x Noctua Industrial NF-F12's

Bought a powermac G5, expect a mod log sometime in 2015

Corsair is overrated, and Anime is ruined by the people who watch it

What is so strange?

Two rads next to each other on top.

 

 

Is anyone else not receiving notifications for quotes?

Good thing I decided to clean the rads before using them.

This is one of the 60mm once, after first flush:

There dont appare to be anything wrong with the cooler or the fans, so guess it was bad termalpaste and bad airflow, that caused my problems. Unless the cooler is broken or not good enough. I will have it tested later to be sure of the cause.

The old case, after I removed most of the components. I left the motherboard, as that was the easiest place to store it.
