    I'm still waiting for stuff to arrive from MDPC-X, which includes a bunch of sleeves (family packs plus some colors), tools and... screws. I want the screws that keep the rads mounted to be properly black, rather than keeping the somewhat quirky looking copper screws and nickel-plated washers...

    So meanwhile, I'm just snapping pictures of the case and stuff. I remembered just earlier today that the case has those LEDs for the rear IO, and also realized they weren't exactly shielded or hidden from view within the case... In fact, they're pretty much exposed.

    Damn nice camera shot drunken. Which case is this 600T? You have been building quite a few systems. I want to start a new build so bad, so many ideas

    This case is the NZXT Switch 810 I received a few days ago. Not sure what I think of it yet though. Pretty solid idea, but some bits and bobs are rather quirky.

    Like the first 5.25" slot is a separate 'cage' from the other 5.25" slots...
    And holy crap do the glossy "piano finish" plastic get dirty.
    The case appears to be quite... frail.

    I may do a couple bits of modding to the case, but it seems to require fairly little for it. Maybe it would be useful to consider adding a few support beams of thicker steel, cut the plate separating the 5.25" slots in one spot, and I'm inclined to have the plastic bits that gather dust like mad painted with a coating that is less dust-attracting.

    Most of this can be done independently of the contents of the case, so they shouldn't hinder me building the computer as soon as I get my MDPC stuff. :E

    I'm sorry, protput, but...
    Your argument is now invalid.

    What's worst is that 1200 USD is probably only a marginal profit, lol. Considering the TJ07 already costs a fair bit, and studying the pictures will tell you these guys spent a ludicrous amount of manhours and probably a small fortune on the materials required for making all the mods possible. '-'

    And then they're promptly gonna repeat that for another 499 cases, lol.

    While it is a pretty case, it's definitely not $1200 pretty. I'd rather buy a Caselabs and go for some really nice watercooling. Talking Dual loops with 4+ rads.

    It's a perfect case in my opinion. It looks incredible. But to be honest instead of paying 1200$ for someone elses work id rather buy a TJ11 and make something on my own even though it wouldnt look nearly as good.

    And let's not get caught up in the escapades.

    And bear in mind that posting "in b4" is against the rules.

    A Corsair H100 CPU cooler and a red LED light cable thingy ordered This should arrive soonish. Within 1 or two weeks i think. One or both of the items were out of stock (i got my mom to order for me :P)
    The H100 will replace my Havik 140 Cooler.
    Will post pictures when things are installed.

    I love that Water Cooler. However, I can't find much info on it. Would I need anything else for it to work, or is that literally all that is needed to watercool the CPU?

    It's probably some sort of closed-loop system, still looks pretty awesome.

    That's all you need Like the corsair H100 and H80, it's not a watercooling loop, it's a liquid cooler. You buy it, take it out of the package, install it and done. No water filling, no tubes, nothing.

    I think it is an Antec Kuhler H20 with an Intel sticker on it.

    Forgive me XD I've never actually tried installing a water cooler or anything because they seem to look complicated and expansive.

    As far as I know it's and Intel cooler. Could be a re-branded Antec Khuler like you say, though, dunno, but you can buy it on quite a few onlinestores in Sweden.

    So in essence, it would appear that I was right
