    Switch 810. System is obviously not finished though, so that is going to take some more time. :P

    I got out of the elaborate gaming setups in my younger days. Was a lot of fun though. Now I just use a 15" MacBook Pro to play the few games I still play.

    Isn't that a little optimistic of you?

    Do you have the radiator on the top? Quite nice case, which I'm planning to get it as well.

    There's a 360 radiator in the roof, yes.

    Depends on what you want to do with the system, if you're going for watercooling the Switch 810 would be the better choice. The 650D is a very solid case tho, 810 is mostly plastic.

    Hmm.. If you just mount the radiator below the roof and attach 3 fans under the radiator and in the roof you can mount an additional 3 fans?

    I could, yes, but I have no plans of doing so. I'm more than comfortable with just push configs on both sets. I will be mounting 120s in the front as intakes though, partially for the look up front and for the positive air pressure.

    Ah okay

    Just one more question. The rubber things on the nzxt 810 for cable management are they from decent quality? My phantom's are flipping easily out and they're hard to put them back in place >.<

    I just upgraded most of my PC again, specs are in my signature.
    I just hope I don't get buyer regrets, alot of people said just go with the 2011 3930k because 1155 is a dead socket, but I'm hoping the 3770k will do me even after the 2011 socket is no more. I mean I just use this build for gaming and web browsing, will try and post photos soon.

    CPU is not what's holding back gaming except in rare cases. i7 3770K is likely better for gaming with two graphics cards or less anyway, compared to LGA2011. As resolutions will move toward 4K, GPUs are what will be the struggling parts. We're not quite there yet, though.

    Then why did you go with an I7?
