Roger that. I was just evaluating it.

Or maybe even never (like, whoever really finishes a build?). Strictly speaking, this is still my first build; I'm just upgrading the case. I will hopefully make the swap in a couple of weeks or so once the humidity levels go up (to reduce static issues; it's bone dry here right now and I can't walk 12" without generating enough static to light up Phoenix).
I look forward to seeing the pics as the components go in

True, you only have to remove one side but you also have to move cables out of the way to be able to get the drive tray out.

Yes it has filters but there are leaks around the fans over the filters. Also, the back of the case has a lot of unfiltered openings. What I can't understand is why on earth case manufacturers design a built in fan grill that is larger than the bloody fan. It was the same with the Corsair 650D I've been modding, only not as bad as the Phantek.

I don't believe I stated that was a perfect case for all to buy.
I do think this case has a lot of possibilities for a #100.00.

I know of no dust proof cases unless one does like Jeannie does and makes it dust proof.
I have incorporated some of Jeannie's dust proofing in my case and will do some more when I get all the things I have ordered.
I'm going to re do all the cabling.
Add two more 140mm case fans.
That will give me 7 140mm fans blowing in and 6 120mm fans blowing out through a 360 radiator. That should give me a positive case pressure. At this time I have no idea whether this will cool better or not because the system runs cool now. Can't hurt. My cpu is running 10c over ambient at the present time.
Add a 5 1/4 hot swap sata for two ssd's. This is just a want not a need.
Hell the whole system is a want and not a need.

Let us know how that swap bay works out. Apparently, it's too new for any customer reviews yet.

Will do. I have StarTech external ssd holder I use on eSata and usb 3.0 and it works as advertised so I stuck with that brand.
With that I'm getting another 120gb Intel ssd.
When the day comes I thinking of having 1 internal ssd with Windows 7 and one hot swap ssd with Windows 9 and one hot swap ssd for backups.

When I get done it will be time to spruce up my 600t Corsair that has a i7 960.
I need/want to find a proper self built water cooling system for the 600t.

Yeah, makes me want to puke. My first 64GB Crucial M4 was $139 but I forget where I bought it. Here's a 128GB one though.

If it makes you feel any better, often, when a popular computer component has been discontinued, speculators will snap up the remaining stock, sit on it a bit, then sell them at horribly inflated prices. Then you don't feel so bad for having bought early before the price had gone down.

True that, I saw some ASUS P8Z77 Pro boards on Amazon for over $600, Japanese wishful thinkers. Plus $39 shipping.
