Good choices on the components.

Thanks so much for sharing

Thanks and there is a 120mm fan mount rather cleverly hidden to the right of the psu however airflow is pretty poor. The AIO cooler goes on the outside basically so the cpu itself isn't as effected.

The issue with cables is that its too long for short cables so cables would need alot of work to get proper sized cables. I'll probably cut them down to size at a later date, thanks for the offer anyway.




Cheers for the words guys . It's very good to see I'm not the only person who likes this case!

Looking sweet and I also love the case!


I am thinking of making a InWin 901 build for my wife, I would like to know if anyone here could tell me if the H90 would fit?

Needs to be a 120mm rad mate, the H90 is 140.

yeah, I was hoping that a 140mm would fit.. so in the end the only option for a all in one cooler is the H75?

You could also look at silverstone's one. Any 120mm aio would fit from what I can see.

Got white LEDs to go in bud and yeah its very dark, the glass is very tinted.



Anyway,

MINI UPDATE TIME- Pictureless edition. I've got the fans I want for it on order, an Akasa Viper for airflow in the case (you can't see the fan at all so it was a lovely case of just getting the nicest specs) and a good ol' SP120 quiet ed for the rad. I've also got a Bitfenix Molex to 3x 3pin fan cable on order (white) meaning even more cable management is needed. yaaay. I'll add some photos to OP when they come.

A couple of issues (well me being indecisive) have reared their ugly head. My first issue is that I've found an AIO that I think might go slightly better with my build however I'm not entirely sure if it is any good. The object in question is the Intel AIO thingy. My other issue is to do with the GPU, rather the lack of decently priced stock 780s. As I've mentioned previously the GPU has to exhaust as much of its heat outside the case as possible while not having any heat issues. It also must be a dual slot GPU that isn't bigger than 30cm exactly. Obviously I'm not fussed as to which team it is although I would prefer to avoid EVGA as I've got a bit of bad juju with them :P.

The lack of major updates is down to issues with a couple of parts as well as my car deciding that exhausts are for P***ys, sorrah guys .

The Intel AIO will be fine considerin it's just another Asetek rebrand. Not the best for the money though, if anything it's too expensive for what it does. What made you think it goes better with the build?

(I should really add a vodka bottle for size comparison to my build log)
