I'm using the Arctic Z1 Pro

I placed a 3mm nut between the glass and plastic front panel. You'll have to find some longer 6-32 thread screws to replace to original ones.

It should be positive pressure (2 intake and 1 exhaust). The front rad intakes from the 2 bottom fans. I got my case from ncix.com (the Canadian site). Your configuration should work, with my current setup I don't have any dust issues.

Hope that helps

Thanks! No I was unable to sync all five fans, I actually need 2 RGB controllers, the other one is hidden on top of the PSU and out of sight. It's important to note that the fans use a 5 pin connector into the RGB controller. As of right now there doesn't appear to be a way to sync both RGB controllers.

The LED's shown around the case are the NZXT Sleev​ed LED Kit. The Thermaltake LED strips are hidden around the radiator to highlight the honeycomb pattern at the front. All the LED's are attached to the PSU molex.

Thanks. I can't say what the difference is because I didn't test it with the drive cage. But you can check out the review at http://www.techspot.com/review/1058-in-win-805/pages.html 2x140mm intake fans at the front should be sufficient given that your hardware doesn't generate too much heat. If not add 2 more 140mm in push/pull on the radiator.

Maybe I was unlucky with the binning, my card doesn't overclock too well and it runs pretty hot. But it's definitely one of the better price per performance cards out there right now.

Apparently not, I misread the information. Jaredt corrected me. I will need to run some benchmarks to see if there is a noticeable difference between the top lane and lower lane.

I'm running push (Noctua NFF12ippc) / pull (thermaltake riing 12) on the radiator mounted at the front. The Noctua fans are hidden behind the IN Win logo. As for intake, there are 2x120mm fans at the bottom. You will have to give up the 3.5 drive cage to install the bottom fans. For exhaust, there is 1x120mm fan at the rear. Temperatures are decent, better than my NZXT H440 setup. I'm overclocking the CPU and GPU and max temps are 75c and 80c respectively. You'll need to invest on some fans, it comes with only 1 mediocre fan at the rear.

Out of curiosity how were you able to check that?

You bring up a good point. I've checked the manual and it appears to be fine. I should still get the x16 multiplier.

Yes there is sufficient space. It can technical fit 4 GPUs, but the airflow is pretty bad so I would recommend 2 GPUs max.

If you're just doing push the cooler will fit with the thermal armor. Good luck on your build

Thanks for the recommendations. I had a look at the MSI GTX 970 black and white, it looks pretty good too bad it doesn't have a backplate. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I don’t need that much RAM. When I first planned the build I had 16gb of black ram, but decided to add some white RAM to make it look better. It’s stupid but now its future proof.
