It really is an awesome case, yeah. Very happy with it
I'll make sure to provide some detail pics when I do my build log.
Excellent. Can't wait for the build log. Any ideas on what color cable sleeving I should use? I'm thinking orange or grey.

Oh yeah, forgot about that question

I'm trying to picture a black M/B tray with orange cables. Black/orange is a great combo imho, but I'm not sure how the chrome of the GPU backplates will mix with orange.

Grey is a pretty good choice, and will certainly fit. But if orange works, it would look fantastic I think. Maybe you should order an orange sample and just try it out? If it doesn't fit you can then still go for grey.

Either way, the BF alchemy cables look pretty nice imho.

I'll go with the silver/light grey flavor. I don't think the orange would look as good. Silver/light grey fits the components better. Thanks for the input.

Happy to help Grey does go nicely with the M/B and the chrome/nickel backplates, that's true.

Thanks for the input. I never added it all up. You are scaring me! I've decided to use a 360 for Phase 2. I don't wanna chop up the top. Geezus, I've sawed the D a great deal already. I could mount it sideways on top of the case. However, that would just DESTROY the aesthetics. Honestly I don't NEED another radiator. But, you only live once!

Oh no! You absolutely, positively, certainly, definitely, decidedly most assuredly need that last 120 mm fan!

HA! I don't think SkyNET will miss it. I guess it will depend on my mood when Phase 2 is under way.

03.27.13
UPDATE!!!

Inspiration and time to think gave me a new pump config to try out. I had to run some fluid with it to make sure it would work. Judging by the vortex I believe it's good to go!



Here are some pics of the ruff install. I don't have it completely level they way I want. I'm going to file out the bottom mount holes to give me wiggle room to level it upon final install. You probably can't tell in the pics. I'm just fussy that way.




Stay tuned...

I just noticed: When I finally do my build with my SMH10, our internal component arrangement (radiators, PSU, res, pumps, possibly top radiator) will be quite similar
Not identical (who would want that? ), but similar.
And before I bought the SMH10 (well, before it came out) I was planning to do a scratchbuild, and ended up at the same place.
I suppose there really aren't that many possibilities to arrange your components in a square box and get best space effiency combined with clean layout.

This is true. The dimensions of both cases are similar. I'll leave mounting 3 480mm rads to you. I can't WAIT to see that. Luckily, there's more than one way to skin a cat! I'm currently getting my fittings list together. I gotta get SkyNET online again. Now, where do I get the money...
