Yeah they certainly are enormous. Very visually appealing, and i love the grab rails (have them on my old cosmos S as well). I didn't anticipate having any trouble fitting stuff in the case considering its size, so the issues with the drive bays and the top RAD not having enough space are a bit disappointing.

Any one have any idea about how much better SupremeFX IV audio is over your average Realtek chipset?

Ordered the M5F from neworldit the other day.
Still waiting on shipping confirmation!!

What sort of RAM are people going with for it?
I'm thinking of the Gskill 2400 Trident X F3 kit:

9925

Not sure about compatibility though??



These will work fine in the M5F. I ended up going with the 8G 2666 Trident X kit, I talked to Gskill directly and they confirmed
compatibility. That and the Trident X is what some of the reviewers used.

what... you only have space for a 360 rad if the ports are on towards the rear of the case if you have a device in the top front bay? that is very disappointing for such a massive case. -_-

Yep ... disappointing ... adding to that you can't have a thick rad and you have to modify a little the roof not to condemn the top bay 😞
But it works 😄

Scrat, err, I mean, Gipi, what brand tubing is that? Just curious, I like the transparent blue. 🙂

Gentelman and perhaps lady, I have found my Maximus V Formula with UPS it has arrived in my city and to avoid the risk of them losing it again I am on my way to pick it up from the warehouse, expect pictures at around 9 30 to 10.

The FESER Company. It appears to be blue in the pic but in fact it's a clear not UV Hose (3/8" ID & 1/2" OD) 😉

I will use FESER One cooling fluid UV Red with that. Will match perfectly the M5F color scheme.
