    Would love people's opinion on this. Had it up and running for about 2 weeks now.
    The only thing I would have changed is the Seagate drive, but that may be personal opinion more than empirical evidence, I just consider them "budget" drives compared to Western Digital Caviar Blacks (or even Blues) and Samsung Spinpoints.

    The "non-green" ones are 7200 RPM and come with a decent cache-size. Odds are that any difference is going to be quite vague.

    Do you have more than one HD 7950 in your build?
    And yes, do give pics! Although at a glance it sounds like your computer is a lot like the one I had mere month ago.

    It's super simple! Either select "thumbnail" from the imgur menu or simply add a "L", "M" or "S" at the end of the image name, like so:

    Original: [img]http://i.imgur.com/nFNbB.jpg[/img]
    Large thumb: [img]http://i.imgur.com/nFNbBL.jpg[/img]

    Will look like this:

    It is a very sturdy case and I don't see many of them around, I really want to redo the whole case though. Tear it apart, mount a horizontal motherboard tray, create a custom backplate, paint it all and maybe mod the roof to fit a MO-RA3 radiator. Sadly these things are all in my dreams and budget/time restrainsts tie me down. I would love to do it to it one day though. Since PC items generally follow standards it will most likely be a very good case in the future too.

    Well, I'm going to address something to do with your future rig instead.
    a. GTX 570 ti? I think you mean the GTX 560 ti 442, or the GTX 570.
    b. HX Pro? I'm pretty sure that doesn't exist. Did you mean HX 750?
    c. WD Caviar Blue? Now I feel a lil' case of blues.
    d. Are you set on the NZXT Phantom? NZXT recently released the Switch 810 as well.

    Yes those were a accident. I used to have it at 560ti and forgot to remove the little "ti" on the end. The power supply is supposed to be Corsiar HX750 XD And yes.. I am set on this case I belive. I have yet to look at the new one.

    The feel? It's an all around good case. My only "serious" gripe is the lack of rad space, but rad space is rare in most cases. -.-

    Aired, I would assume the 7950's you are using are the Windforce models? If so, how are the fans for noise? When I upgrade I want to get one or two of those cards and am unsure what the noise rating is like compared to cards like the Twin Frozr MSI cards.

    Congrats to the 8 fools who made the ignore list, your ignorance knows no bounds, bravo!

    Is there any other minor annoyances with it? I get easily annoyed with small things when it comes to computers xD

    I can't remember them well right now to be fair.

    But I'll try,
    a. The fan controller has a high and low setting. Why it has it is beyond me, since turning it to high doesn't really do anything but light up the LEDs and add some noise. Le fans are not able to cool any better just with that step up in my experience. (It's already excellent to begin with.)
    b. Inconsistent color schemes are annoying, but at least blue and red works well together. But I to this day have no idea what the red accents on the top and front are for. Just aesthetic?
    c. Backpanel has a tiny bit too much flex, so the panel can often not quite fit right. Fixed by... actually, I don't recall how I sorted that out in the end. At first I struggled by using third limb and shit.
    d. Default LED color is blue, and if fans are ever off you must manually set fan color back to your desired color.
    e. Removing the bottom fan filter is annoying, as it is incredibly long and thusly requires your machine be a distance from the wall...

    I'm about to build this for my friend's 12/13 year old sister. I like how quickly she wanted the Enforcer, after looking at tons of other cases.

    CM Storm Enforcer
    i5-2400
    Asus P8Z68-V LX
    Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz 8GB (2x4GB)
    Galaxy GTX 560
    My old Corsair TX 650 watt V1 PSU
    her old 500GB HDD is going to be backed up and then reformatted and hopefully my old 7 Home Premium 64 bit install will work for this.



    She is upgrading from...

    HP Pavilion a6547c PC

    AMD Athlon X2 5000
    4GB RAM
    Vista Home Premium
    NVidia GeForce 6150 SE onboard graphics
