    and installed, waiting on EK block for it, just jammed some extra cables into the case to make sure it works, will tidy it up tomorrow :P
    So soon you'll have an SLI Titan rig along with a Cfx 290X rig? Christ McBollock-Waffles that's a lot :S

    i replaced that piece of crap k70:




    MXBrowns with White LEDs, I took the english/chinese keycaps from my older ducky and put them on this one, as well as did the rubber o-ring mod to all the keycaps, which not only makes it a bit quieter, but it gives a feeling of better fit and finish

    it's a night and day difference in quality between this and the K70

    I have the same mouse pad.. Mine is about as dirty as yours.
    It's a bit of shame how much dirt shows up on it. >.< Other than that Mionix makes reasonable mouse pads.. Edges fray a bit though.

    Almost 3 years after I got my 800D, I've finally replaced it with a worth successor - the 750D. I did have a Ximatek Elysium in the middle of that time when I was watercooling, but when I moved back to air, I moved back to the 800D.

    First off, the cable management on the 800D wasn't great. The horizontal mid-panel actually pushed behind the motherboard tray meaning that cables got squashed and sometimes got disconnected (particularly SATA cables). It's cooling was extremely poor as it lacked any decent intakes. I actually had to resort to using the rear fan mount as an intake but even then I still had to leave the side panel off most of the time. The PSU could also only be orientated one way (fan down). Overall, though the case looked impressive and the size was more than adequate, it wasn't good at cable management or cooling.

    The 750D by contrast is the opposite. Cable management is super easy and there's actually a decent sized 'guide' at the bottom for cables to lay in. There's another guide behind the motherboard tray at the top where you can hang cables and there's no annoying mid-section squashing the cables. The cooling potential of this case looks like it'll impress me - 2 front intakes up to 2x140MM, 3x120MM/2x140MM support at the top, and 1x120/140MM at the rear. Then there's 2x120MM at the bottom but that would require me to remove both drive bays. Since the case has to sit on the carpet, I opted not to install bottom fans. This case also allows me to mount the PSU with the fan facing upwards so I've taken that route this time. More to the point, it's got front USB3 ports. Sure, you could buy a backplate for the 800D for the same, but I never opted for that.

    The 750D is slightly smaller than the 800D, but I'd say it's just the right size in all honesty. At the same time as I got the case, I also ordered in 3 AF140 fans - 2 to replace the front stock fans with and 1 to replace the rear stock fan with. I remember that the stock fans on the H100i rattled a lot so I didn't want to risk it happening again with the 140's they fitted. I had planned to order in a 750GB Samsung 840 EVO as well, but finance got declined so I had to buy what I could afford this month (which was case and fans).

    Thankfully, it's light enough today to get some semi-decent photos;


    This shot shows all the hardware actually in the case prior to the PSU being fitted. You can see that almost all of the cables have been hidden completely from view.


    This provides a better view of how it actually looks from the side but again, this was before the PSU was fitted.


    PSU fitted - the typical bottom corner shot. You can


    A better view from the side after the PSU was fitted. You can see there's a lot of cables at the bottom, non-modular PSU so I've got to 'deal with it'. The rest though, as you can see, is still rather tidy.


    An even better view from the side, all powered up.

    Honestly, this case fixes all the problems I had with the 800D, and then goes the extra mile. For example, the SSD mounting is impressive - though they're "only drives", they're still expensive hardware and it's good to know that when I finally replace the old SSD's, I'll be able to show them off. I've got 2 HDD's in this rig, both 2TB, so keeping them cool is now finally an option (800D did have mounts for them, but the air wouldn't really have gone anywhere). The case also seems quieter, presumably because of the number of rubber mountings around fans and such. I mean, even the HDD mounts are tool-less but flexible and silenced.

    The only thing I will miss from the 800D is the push-button mechanism for the side panels. That was almost pushing me towards the 900D instead but in the end, thumbscrews aren't so bad.

    Final conclusion: The 750D is how cases should be - easy to work with, impressive airflow, fantastic in expansion potential but conservative on features. It looks sleek and really does let you showcase your hardware.

    There really isn't enough space behind the mobo to just stuff the extra cables there?

    800D, there wasn't. I'm not keen on putting cables behind the mobo/between mobo and tray, but the 800D just made routing cables from the bottom chamber to the main one a total hassle.

    750D, there's space behind the mobo for the spare cables, but there's not a whole lot of spare ones as it is. It's a Seasonic S12II PSU which again, it's non-modular. Most of the cables you can see are simply cables that have already been routed. As with most non-modular PSU's, all of them are fed through a single hole in the shell. My old AX1200 was modular, but it was loud and from what I could tell, the 3.3V rail was failing (and seemed to be causing all sorts of crashes). Even though it was modular, there'd still be a lot of cable to show as it was being fed to behind the tray.

    The main reason I switched cases was airflow, but better cable management behind the motherboard tray was also important. I'm not too bothered about a clump of cables near the PSU, not enough to buy a non-modular PSU at least.

    I see. I know what you mean about non-modular PSUs, the one I have is half modular, but the amount cables attached by default is generous. Despite that the business side of the case is clean, but I hope I don't have to open the back panel in a while. Closing it requires some wrestling maneuvres. :P

    But yeah, it's purely aesthetic, not like they're blocking the airflow down there.

    I'll admit I have had to bearhug the new case a little to get the side panels on properly but overall it's only a minor hassle. Also made a few changes to the layout;


    As you can see, I've switched to my AX1200, seems it is working though I'm not sure if it'll hold out or not. It's louder than the Seasonic even at idle -- think it's one of the units where the fan doesn't spin down as it's meant to, but it does allow much better cable management. I also moved the HDD cage up to below the 5.25" bays, it just slides in on some rails and is then secured with a single screw. I've then fitted 2 Scythe GT's into the bottom fan mounts, which fills up all the fan slots available in the case.

    The noise from the PSU is rather annoying to be honest. I've gotten so used to a nearly silent unit for the past few months that going back to one that's this noisy is a little frustrating.

    I should really get a better camera

    Are you really using the seasonic cpu cable with your ax1200?

    No, that cable was supplied with either the 800D or with the AX1200 itself. AX1200 CPU cable isn't long enough to reach the 4+4-pin power connector comfortably without it.

    please get some fanfilters in the bottom as george forgot to implent them, gj on new psu :P now just tidy the fan cables

    SSDs/HDDs are gone now, replaced with a single 750GB Samsung 840 EVO. RAPID is so stupidly fast....

    I've been through a LOT of GPUs since, had SLI 4GB 680s, then Crossfire 7950s, then a single 7950, then a 4GB Asus DCU2 670, then I got a fantastic deal on a TITAN (£450 when they retail at £750-£850) which I couldn't say no to. Have had the triple monitors for quite some time now as well. Managed to snag myself one of the NZXT HUE RGB LED controllers which at the time were almost impossible to get a hold of in the UK.

    I also moved house and built my own desk! Spot the WoW blade!
