just like to make live easier for sb else. it is expensive, it is huge (and i mean HUGE), rock-solid and has (nearly) endless space. but, it is well worth the money if you look for sth like that (btw, if it is to small for you, there is sth even bigger supposed to come your way soon (just google it). anyway, finally last thursday my huge box arrived. considering the damage to the box, the shipping company guys REALLY don't like the size and weight! anyway, it looked worse than it was, a slight dent to one of the door corners from one of the a**holes at ups thinking it is funny to toss ppl's stuff around. maybe trump is right after all!? - just kidding! anyway, the case... awesome! - the guys at tt did a pretty good job to give Lian Li a run for the money. diff. is poss the steel vs. aluminum decision. hey, there has to be a reason that thing weights 50+ lbs! since i have no idea how long i will go on about this case, let me put my relevant findings first: 1- the manual is pretty good - do NOT follow it all the way! 2- if you just remotely think about using the hdd locations on the back of the (off) center wall (the right, looking from the front) - install the whole little bits and pieces as soon as you got the basic case assembled! just in general, put the little plastic pieces for the 6 hdd's on the back in! you will regret if you do not and take out mb, drive cages etc. later to install them! 3- be prepared that many of the screws don't go in easy (my experience)! have a screwdriver with a handle that allows for some serious torque and potentially be prepared to re-thread some screw-holes before anything will work. 4- i use a lot of asrock mobo's - the right-hand side atx stand-off's most likely will be a shot in the dark for you - meaning they are just not there! so. be prepared that your asrock mobo is kinda swinging free on the far right after putting it in. maybe the same for other mobo's as well, i can't tell. it's not a disaster, you just want to consider that when pushing in cables, ram etc on that end - use your fingers to support/ hold up the mb while pushing down... otherwise you might have a mb to replace!!!! 5- this case has 4 usb3 ports at the front panel, most mb's offer 1 port (supporting 2 plugs) - so you might wanna get a usb3 to usb2 adapter cable to utilize the remaining 2 ports! ok, that was the first little 'look out for...' - i have to re-run the whole build in my clouded head also again. i am sure there will be some more things coming back to me. BUT! - don't let any of that put you off considering this box! it is one of the most awesome cases on the market at the moment - if you need supersized. and in terms of value for the money def in the top of the top5!!! cheers, L
Hi all.. I have begun a new build, and its my first build since the 90' ... Its a replacement for my old Apple Mac Mini, that died on me some weeks ago. Then I look a the prices, and went for a HackInTosh build. (And there went my savings for the trip to New York) Its a workingstation build, not a gaming rig, for that I have my consoles. Here is some specs: Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor Enermax LiqMax II 240 AIO Liquid CPU cooler Gigabyte GA-Z170X-UD5 TH ATX LGA1151 Motherboard G.Skill TridentZ Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory Corsair RM 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply Thermaltake Core P5 ATX Mid Tower Case I finish the first stage: Assembly of the Core P5 chassis, that will be the main platform. ATM I'm installing the main hardware, so we can make the first boot and do some testing. When its up an running, I have to do the planning of: Where to mount my drives, and how. Where to install the Raspberry Pi. ( more on the Pi later) Where to install RGB leds. Water cooling design and mount. You can follow my build, and join in if you want. Everything is shared on BitBucket. Pictures, more info and progress comming soon..
