The bracket or the cooler? The bracket doesn't even touch my mobo but the cooler barely fits because of the ram.
What is that radiator bracket you used for the top of the case? Did you custom make it or does someone make them? I want one for my 280mm radiator.
As far as I know the 200 series chipset won't be out for a while, but I'm not 100% sure. I do know that 100 series chipset boards will support Kaby Lake with a BIOS/UEFI update.
Kaby Lake looks really good, if you don't mind waiting a month or two I would 100% wait for it.
The built in fan controller is kind of useless honestly. There isn't software control, and there's also no hardware control. Basically the way it works is you plug in all of your fans to the controller and then you plug in a pwm cable from the fan controller into a CPU fan header on your motherboard and you use your motherboard to control all the case fans as one fan in the case. It's kind of stupid and you would be better off getting a real fan controller. I still need to do that but I just haven't gotten around to it yet.
Mounting a rad on the front of the case shouldn't be a problem, but it will still be visible. Your graphics card temps might also increase if you put a rad on the front because less air is getting to it, and the air may be warmer because of the rad.
Cable management on the back side is very easy, although it can be difficult to close the glass side panel due to the motherboard 24pin being so bulky. I do with there were more cable tie down points on the back, so I could route my 8pin CPU power more neatly, as of right now it's just kind of strung across the back and it bugs me.
My glass game in perfect condition, not a single scratch or ding, although I have heard of some cases having dents on the aluminum and scratched glass.
Everything is aluminum, steel, or glass on this case. It's built extremely well.
The top of the case and the glass gets a little warm to the touch while gaming, but doing normal tasks like watching YouTube, or writing an essay doesn't do anything. In fact the glass and the aluminum are actually cold to the touch when idling.
I hope this answers your questions. Thanks for the comment.
The load temps for the CPU are AIDA64 stress test temps. I have yet to see it hit 50C in games.
Currently I have a plastic folding table as my desk, but I'm going to hit Ikea tomorrow and pick up a new desk. I'll update then.
Yeah, I know. I've used 1440p monitors plenty of times, but I don't really see the point. I'm waiting until 4K becomes a more mainstream standard before upgrading resolutions. Also I'm not really a fan of huge monitors, 27in just seems a bit too big.
24GB of RAM is kind of a weird amount... Nice build nonetheless
