  1. Mine aint the best looking thing, but it does get the job done.

  2. hmm when i did the thermal paste round up with the thermal fusion 400 i just washed it off with soap and water. my hands that is. the consistancy is a tad thicker then the high performance thermal paste and a tad thinner then noctuas thermal paste. HERE scroll to Page 5 for a consistancy test

  3. nice looking mod, the dual 120 can fit up on the hdd cage . you have to use the dual fan bracket that CM used. and invert it. little mod that requires little time to do. and y u opted to restrick the upper 2 230mm fans ? i realize the mesh cm used did this as well.

  4. little high for the V8, with some chilla ramic i was getting 65-67 C on the v8. i would check airflow of the chassis increase the fan speed or (both, i recommend both) and make sure the thermal paste is spread out evenly across the IHS. I never listen to manus specifications when it comes to placing thermal paste i use a 5 small drop set up in a 5 dice pattern.

  5. Remove the top 4 allen screws then there are little clips holding the fan on. these are loacted on the upper top cover simply pull them apart then remove the fan. be careful because you can break them tabs if not careful.

    I got my V* in my lap and i dont see any other screws holding the fan and top on other then the top 4 screws.

  6. change the spacing between the fins (to accomidate more airflow). drop the deck hieght by 1/2 " ( from the bottom of the fins to top of cpu base). add 2mm of thickness to the main cpu coolers base (from, the heat pipes to the cpu coolers base's face in that area). and use slightly larger cooling heat pipes

  7. windex and go with the grain with a soft rag. front bazel go up and down, 5.25 bay covers side to side, top and panals front to rear. it cleans right up. if the mood strikes me i may paint mine white .....i have recently found out my self the atcs 840 can and will house a very large water cooling set up. in mine i have a tri 120 up top ( no modding) a dual pass dual row dual 120 rad with fans and a dual pass dual row single 120 bolted to that rad with fan on the bottom. ( the 2 x 120 fan mount on the hdd had to be inverted and then reconfigure the mounting system a bit ( 0 mods again just a reconfigure)

  8. i do not see this a problem. the only real area you should be consenered with is the video card area.

    nope you dont. the only screws that hold them on are the ones that we normally use

  9. well 2 x 230 fans = 460mm min . now we know its going to have a bit more room up top around the fans i am gonna say yeppers easily , and still probably use a cdrom drive in the same bay. (providing its a short one)

  10. When will we find this in the shops? What about price? Can this fit a cooler master V8?

    omg this case is awesome!!

    1) Official launch date 11/25

    2) Will inform pricing when we're getting closer to the date

    3) V8 will fit perfectly with this case


    agreed :) ......

  11. the 1394 port is OUTDATED, ever since they came out with the usb 2.0 standard. as far as foront IO ports, i dont hook mine up mainly becasue i dont like having crds and crap on the front of my case. if you were to use a sd card interfacing port i would then hook it up and use it.
