    Thanks.  Will post back later with impressions and all of that.  But right now I am itching to play some BF4, I mean I need to test out the new case right?

    you may wanna clean your radiator, it seems rather dusty... also i find it odd how the power the the 970ftw is near the center of the card and cant you set the EVGA SLI bridge to red, or is RGB only on the newer ones? nitpicking aside the build looks great in that case.

    I already cleaned it (did that while transferring my components), it is much cleaner looking in person without the flash and angle.  I have a MetroVac duster that is very powerful that I use on it.  In my last case (HAF-X) I had the fans on the dirty side that you see and that is where the dust collected.  The other side is perfectly clean, well wont be for much longer lol.  There really isn't much dust at all in my radiator, you can look right through it perfect.  It just has a dusty cooler to it since it gets lots of use and I've had it a while.
     
    All 970s have their power there like that.  Most all X70s and below are like that.  Its the high end X80, Ti, and Titans that have their power all the way at the end.
     
    No, the SLI bridge is not RGB.  White only.  Just like the case LEDs, white and not RGB.

    The Evga bridge isn't really RBG it's changed by stickers or use of film internally to change the color .

    Nice looking setup similar to mine except I use a z170 chipset but use dual 970 FTW+ and my power is not in the middle may be the cases placement of cutouts that required more slack for the bottom card I dunno


    But nice setup all together

    Hey, ManBearPig.
    I was wondering which screws you used to screw in your rear (or "left") case fans? I have a pair of Be Quiet! Pure Wings 2, and the case screws they came with are too thick for me to use. Also, the included screws that my DG-85 came with are too thin screw into the fans from the outside in. The only way I can think of installing them is to use a skinny screwdriver and screw in one of the DG's included screws by sticking the screwdriver through the hole on the unused side of the fan and into the case.
     
    I also had trouble removing to top panel to try installing the fans up there. I gave up because I did not want to force and risk damaging the rubber 'upside-down, split arrow-shaped' holders. Is there an easier way to pull it off?
     
    Thank you in advance!

    Finally done. Leak tested and all. I decided to stick with my Z97. Bought the MSI GTX 1080 Seahawk EK to not void any warranty from water cooling. All tubings are Acrylic. The red with the blue in UV are a good mix so that saved me money. My regret is that I should have gone with my white cables instead of the blue and black. I hate the fact that the top radiator are the only place I can put the magnetic UV led unless I go with a single 420 only. I love my two 420 radiators (and spent too much money on them) and I will not compromise.

    Nice.  If I were in the market for a new case, I would strongly consider this one.  I don't think my wife would go for it after how much I spent on the case I have.  Lol.
