    Great read

    A maelstrom (/ˈmeɪlstrɒm/ or /ˈmeɪlstrəm/) is a very powerful whirlpool; a large, swirling body of water.

    Teaser... - YAY FOR PHOTOBUCKET KILLING THREADS - skip to the end.

    I'm just pulling down my HTPC, then i'll really kick this build into gear. Not a lot of cash this time around, most of it has been laid out already in the case. Although the centre of the build will be x99.

    Those cases are massive. I vote you install a mini drink fridge in it!

    Oh yeah, I love that mod.

    My budget isn't that big but I do have a CNC to play with over time.

    Also, this may be the first TH10A in aus as far as I'm aware. Only released recently.

    Looks like you swapped the front fascia sides, right to left and left to right.

    Amazing case man. That thing oozes quality. It really is a case for life isn't it. :thumbup:

    Yep, its now a reverse layout case. This meant new front and rear panels and a full re assemble. I grabbed a reverse conversion kit so I could assemble both ways and decide which I liked better. Definitely reverse, especially seeming I didn't ever get to build that Little Devil Reverse.

    There are some nice changes to the TH10A from the TH10. Things like the window is centered to the panel, there is less gap near the mobo tray, there are removable res mounting plates, the doors will go on either side. Just figured out the PSU support mount isn't going to work in reverse layout.. Bugger.
