The 800D is a beast of a case. Pictures don't even do it justice.

Just picked up the new Corsair 600t case and H50 integrated watercooling unit. It's a good case. A bit pricier than other midtowers but worth it. It's built solidly and has plenty of holes to route the cables through.

Corsair H50 and Gigabyte X58A-UD3R? That's the same setup I have, what CPU?

i7 930. It's not overclocked so the H50 might be overkill, but I can never get my idle temps down into the 30s and 40s with air cooling (probably because my desk is about as far away from an air vent as you can get in my apartment), they were always in the 50s and 60s and would get too high for comfort with load, so I opted for the H50, which keeps them in the high 30s or low 40s depending on ambient temperature and around 60 with full load.

That's pretty good, I have the 930 in mine but overclocked to 4.1GHz and it gets above 70 under load which makes quite a bit of heat but I think the performance is worth it. The i7's can safely handle 70C (I was getting higher temps at stock settings and the stock cooler than I am now)
