Case showed up yesterday.

Seeing what I can fit for rads. The 2x180mm will fit. But fittings need to be facing down and still it is ridiculously tight. Maybe 2x140mm will fit at bottom?

Get the board installed. Test fit bottom rad... Nope. Like 2-3mm too thick. :(

HWLabs SR1 3x120mm looks like it will fit tho. But height wise it is coming close to where the 2nd GPU block will be.

Gross....

Rather dig the look of this thing. Shame it will be completely covered.

Using the Corsair XC7 I got for free last year for 2nd place in MOTM over @ Bit-Tech.

3D printed some hub covers to replace the aging stock stickers on the Gentle Typhoons.

Back to 2x140mm. Will just have to ditch the Samsung 950 Pro. Gave rad a paint job.

Barrow order came in. EVGA 3080 even gets an active backplate.

And then for the MSI RTX3070 Ventus. Way overkill as it is only used for mining. But I didn't want 1 WC and 1 AC card.

Time to fix a pump.

Man, I wish you could get intake fans in a 'reverse' configuration where the fan plades point towards the nice side. So that, you know, you could use fans as intakes on the bottom.

Sweet looking build, so far. Is this case configurable to be inverted?

Ever since RGB fans and tempered glass panels became the new norm I'm amazed that Corsair, CM or TT haven't gotten on board with this. Nothing spoils the clean look of a build like the framework and wires on the back of a fan.

I've seen builds in something like the O11 done where every fan is an exhaust fan just so you don't see the rear of the fan. Still works, but it can't be optimal for airflow

It seems so simple in theory, turn the fan over and reverse the voltage to the motor. I'm sure I'm missing something.

TBH I don't really have issues w/ the backside of the fans IF the logos aren't tacky / incorrect direction.


3D printed reservoir mount.

Sleeved and stickered the bottom rad fans.

And using the other stock 140mm for exhaust. Sleeved and stickered.

Wiring @ PWM hub. Will probably redo the 2nd from left. Had to be twisted to install proper direction and it ruined the heatshrink. :(
