"Suprb gaming case--very good cooling!!"4.5 starson by Starving Artist
Pros: everything runs very cool--looks great--inexpensive.
Cons: case cables a bit short--a bit tight inside.
Summary: I love this case--my CPU--an e6850 is running at 18c to 22c idle, and 34c max at load. I took the load temp running Orthos CPU stress test for an hour or so.I had various tech people saying they wished they could get such low temps. Playing Crysis, My EVGA 9800GTX runs at around 45c-50c with fan at max, which I think is also really good for this card. I installed a fan controller in the case,(highly recommended IMO) and so can turn fans down when I want--with all fans at max it's kind of loud (I added a 120mm to the windowed side panel), but when gaming with headphones I do hear it at all. When I turn them down it is a very acceptable noise level.
Also, this case looks very nice--with some modding down the line it will look awesome.
Cons--A couple of the case cables were kind of short, as they had to stretch over the monster sized 9800GTX--of course this may vary depending on mianboard used--I have an EVGA780i. Also, 9800GTX size cards using the lower two PCI-e slots will interfere with HDD's in the lower HDD cage, at least with my 780i board. SLI will be no problem, but it looks like If I wanted to go Tri-SLI, I would be limited to a max of 2 HDD's.To me this is not an issue, but might be for others.
In summary--really awesome case--very glad I bought this one!!
Thanks for your submission!
