That would SO be worst case scenario! I would be sooo bummed! However, it all appears to be on the shipping order, so am pretty sure it's in there :p

It's all here! I have it assembled and loaded up with Windows now. Just waiting on old rig backups to finish out and will swap the machines out :D

Curious how that H80i (v2) works out for you. Keep us updated.

Will do! So far seems to be holding up well though, will give numbers soon!

First couple of assembled pics! Forgive the crappy phone cam and cramped angle, I will take better pics later, but these are just to show it up and running :D

I'd switch the CPU radiator to the front with a just a fan at the back.

Is that only 1 intake and 2 exhaust fans? It's typically better to have more airflow coming in than out so that the air is forced through the filters instead of being sucked in through other (unfiltered) openings. Like EndUser said, you could experiment with the AIO at the front above the existing case fan. The lower fan will blow cool air onto the GPU and the AIO exhaust will go toward the rear exhaust fan....or just add a 2nd front intake fan.

It's a 140mm running higher rpms then the two 120's, so it balances out

CPU cooler at the front brings in cool air to the CPU first.

I'm not overclocking anything, it won't matter. I'm literally letting everything handle it's own factory overclocks and it's all doing it perfectly so far. No need to wring every degree C for an extra 50mhz on anything.

If the delta in air temperature inside and outside the case is big enough for that to make a difference, then you've probably got other things to worry about anyway.

So far haven't had any throttling problems and have tested a few heavy hitters like Fallout 4 and Heaven benchmark. Also, the case being so properly vented, I don't see any air pressure problems developing over time either. The balance of airflow is solid as is, and temperature is coming out of the 2 exhausts as it should. When loaded up, the air coming out is warm. When idle, the air is cool. Seems to be working to me! :p

As a rule, I always double-check that your motherboard isn't needlessly pumping juice into your CPU. Mobo firmware loves to do that these days.

This is actually a VERY valid point, and one I have to admit to having failed to check yet. Temps are a tad high on the CPU, and could easily be exactly what you just said. Also, I do need to get around to hooking up the USB connection for the waterpump to get Windows access to it. Right now it's running on a fan header so runs base default speed of whatever the header feeds it, which I have set to maximum for right now. But the USB connection is required for find control of the pump itself, which I don't have setup yet and need to do still.

LOL! I feel ya, bro! That itch had been needing scratching for me for a few years when I finally went after it with a king sized back scratcher. Feels good to be rid of that itch. For now, at least :p

The push/pull setup on the radiator is a good fit there. Sometimes it's difficult to find a spot for that which doesn't get in the way.

Spacing was very close, but it works well like this. No room for anything else though, lol!

Do you need room for anything else? No? You're fine :)

I had the same impression when I moved my main PC to a Fractal Define C. Then I though "eh, I'm never going to add a second graphics card and I've already moved my storage drives off this box, so this is all it ever needs to be."
