Probably the best watercooling support out of the box you'll find..
And even better after a few tiny tweaks wink.gif

Why? Are you afraid to cut it a bit? It's one of the best looking cases out there IMO, especially with all the different colored mesh strips smile.gif

To be honest, you barely did any mod to it! Window is an exception, but other than that, I don't think you pulled the dremel out did you?

That's the beauty, which some people don't see. You don't need a "full sized" radiator, whatever that standard is. (60?)
What comes stock in this case provides equal, or even better cooling than a 60mm rad. Cheaper too(the case).

Not afraid of cutting, far from it. See my antec build. The problem is i use 4 drives, and putting the rad in the front would once again leave me with nowhere to put the HDDs.

LOL, the dremel did come out in a few places, but up top to allow a push/pull config.. not cutting to get the rads in place..

Maybe you could somehow use that HDD cage you have on the pic of your sigrig?

I want the XL, but is there enough room for a 360 rad (60mm) and push/pull ?
My current HAF932 has just enough room and that was one of the few that didnt need modding.


ps. stupid question: why is the gpu tube not on the left side of the cpublock?

Your HAF isn't XL ATX compatible, is it? Comparing an XL ATX case with an ATX case? The HAF just can't fit 2x360mm radiators.
The only reason why your HAF can fit 60mm, is because it isn't XL ATX compliant, and it fits an optional PSU on the top.

I've been thinking of getting a Shinobi to replace my Raven RV03 because I've generally grown tired of it and want something smaller. I would obviously have to get another motherboard since the Shinobi can't handle EATX motherboards.

Since I still have some questions I figured I'd be best off asking them here. smile.gif

I heard that the out of the box cooling performance of the Shinobi is pretty bad, so I would have to throw in some additional fans; for the price of the case this is hardly an issue. What I was wondering though is if it's gonna be able to get similar cooling performance while being really quiet? My current setup is barely audible during normal use, and I don't want anything that's gonna be a lot louder.

Basically it comes down to this; is the Shinobi capable of being a silent case? Also, I've seen a couple of sound dampening mat sets on the market, would putting those in the Shinobi help a lot or would it be a waste of money?

Thanks in advance. smile.gif
