    Awesome case. I was looking at the identical Lian Li which is over double the price. $109 is an awesome price!

    i know! good build quality, sick and somewhat innovative design, perfect for my needs. at umart said they would beat or match PCCG's price.

    Will be getting one as soon as i can, we'll see how watercooling in it goes :D

    Would love to hear about you comments on it. Im just about to get one in the next day or so for a new build for my mum so would love to know more.

    On the pics I can see it looks like the HDD caddy covers part of the mobo. My only concern was by how much when a HDD is in, are there any problems with the height of the ram you used. Im looking to put in a Asrock Pro3-m.

    Noooooooooo H80 wont fit.

    Need to externally mount the 2nd fan.

    It's about |-------------------| clearance required for the CPU location.

    What is stopping it from fitting? Looking at your last pic is appears as though the H80 front fan would sit over the waterblock if you had both fans internal. Is this just a deceiving camera angle or is something else in the way?

    It doesnt sit over the waterblock if both fans are inside the case.

    If both fans are in the case the block is unable to be mounted.

    Could someone with this case do me a huge favour and measure a few things for me?
    What I want to know is the length from the back of the case to the fan, then from the bottom of the case to the start of the back fan grill and also from the bottom 3.5" bay to the 5.25" bays.
    Thanks :)

    Has anyone done a Crossfire/SLI build in one of these cases? There's stuffall space above the fourth PCI slot so seems the only motherboards that'll work with it are the Asus Maximus IV Gene and other boards that have the second PCI-e slot 2 slots in from the edge of the board.

    I have 2x Gigabyte GTX460OCs in my TJ08-E with an Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z. Yes, space is tight. Yes, temperatures sometimes exceed 90C.

    But it's such a cool 'lil case. :thumbup:

    Here's an older rpic of when I had two different GTX460 cards.

    just thought i'd post an update

    Very happy with it, there is dust inside the case but the dust filters have blocked 90% of it.

    Airflow is great, cable routing is great.
