    Is it just me or does that motherboard look way to small in that case?

    Well on the plus side there's a whole lotta room to stuff a dozen fans, watercooling, hamster cage and an entire SSF computer alongside it.

    That case looks nice, but £200 is quite a lot just for the case.

    Thanks for the link.

    Where on earth is the hard drive fan supposed to be drawing air from?

    From the intake underneath the chassis.

    Nice build log, looks awesome with the P55 and glad they are working on a retention bracket ;)

    And I thought my TJ10 made my components look small!!

    Gotta love that case though, quite a lot of thought must have went into the design of it by the looks of things..

    ::edit::

    Love the blue fins on those Dominator modules!!!

    I don't like oversized cases... That thing will eat a huge bit of your desk or have to live under it like a LED decorated troll.

    But I also really don't like the shuttle style of compacting things. Only one thing for it. Totally custom case or more affordably, heavily modded case which is close enough :D

    Considering im struggling to find £400 for an upgrade I don't think i'll manage one of those cases, but it looks like it would make cable management a doddle even for noobs like me :)

    And I second Tom|Nbk - get the 1156 bracket sorted, all im waiting before i order my i5 upgrade!
