Dr. Wasn't sure if had been tested or not. That's a bummer!

Gwertheim, I think the term you're looking for it patina and some people find it "classy" 🙄
I have worked as a plumber and it's nasty looking.

I have worked as a cook where I had to polish copper cookware once a month so it won't turn green. The shine of clean copper is classy

I believe someone has tried this radiator already. It does fit, but IIRC correctly, the performance isn't that great. Something about the water tubes ...
i looked into it a a few days ago as well. a couple guys did a deep dive on it in 2010/2011 on chiphell and basically concluded that the performance was underwhelming (even for its thickness). potential issues with the way to the tubes are set up, or how they're soldered to the fins, or how they fins themselves are set up (straight instead of folded) resulting in noticeably weaker performance than other common radiators out at that time.

i did go ahead and order the 25mm-thick radiator w/ extra port last week that w360 previously mentioned, so i'll see how that compares to the "ST25" once it gets here.

You could always space the PSU a bit away from the SSD and move it more towards the PSU, that would probably give you the room you need. There's 4 holes on the strut where you mount the PSU, just use the two holes closest to the MB. This is what I did, maybe it will work for you. If it doesn't, oh well, it should still work perfectly!
You sir, are brilliant. You are absolutely right! I hadn't thought about the other holes. Moving it back just a little will most certainly give me the sufficient space. Thank you! I will have to do that in the near future.

I am thinking about adding a 2.5” drive behind the PSU mounted with double sided tape. Not sure how the heat from the psu will affect the drive the though. I’m not sure I can get a drive behind the front panel with the DC-LT 40 in the way.

I pay attention, but I think the heat will be quite annoying. Is there a gap to put it on the bottom panel?

Already arrived today

Made 5 calls to DHL, apologize for being rude.. asking where is my package.. >_<


But here it is..
Need 10 days after received my tracking number.

My Short review is
1. Build quality is great also the mess panel, you should be strong enough or crazy enough to bent this panel
2. Love the box, plain also another cardboard inside the T1
3. Since is two tone, my first thing is silver and black 50:50 but with black mesh panel.. i think i will order silver mesh panel.
4. thinking about my another build, will waiting Ampere or Big Navi first
--
My anxiety problem is
1. Who put tape in T1 box? really annoys me :v
2. Well, i love plain box without any marking on it, but please @Wahaha360 I think some minimalist logo will great for T1
--
(I'm sorry, i'm a tamiya box collector-so small detail is everthing for me.. Haha)
--
Trying to assemble after my others job finish.. Oh, i need to pays US$40 for customs not including with DHL Service US$10

Thanks @Wahaha360 and your great team.. love this case.

Edited for some details

I think you have space for the SSD behind the front panel!
BTW, mine with velcro, on the back of the PSU, is the main drive, and reach max 45/46C under load.
In general it use to stays around 40C, but still, the temp are in the LOW side!

Here is what I cooked up this morning. After I was done, I realized my printer isn't big enough... This top panel has 3mm more height.


Edit: revised to add a lip that will be flush with front of case
Exactly, I was more waiting for the front lid!

All you guys receiving the case are making me hella jealous. 2 and a half weeks since shipping and mine is still in China, having received the same message on 17track (The airline is shipping) 6 days apart (shipping to UK)

you may want to cross check with ems.post too. For my tracking, it actually showed the update of when my case reached VN like 5-6 hours before 17track did

I prefer DHL in this moment.. EMS still have some trouble with other destination.. But EMS is save with their insurance..

Got my case delivered today as well. Can't wait to get off work and start playing with it. Although I've seen many pictures from others, still very very impressed with the flat-packing 😁
Hmm.. didnt you get another box to open or just T1 box??

that is the only box that I received. If there was another box, VN customs must have thrown that out. They open every package coming into to VN and the reseal it with the EMS branded tape that you see in the picture

I received my T1 package today (in Sydney Australia) but it seems I must be missing a piece - one of the short brackets - super excited for the build though...

If anyone has been waiting for the Corsair SF750 power supply at a reasonable price they are back on their US website now. the 600 watt platinum is also listed. Hurry before they are gone.
