MOAR CORES!!....opps lol....I think this case does a great job of being able to fit a power house pc in a smaller size. I just wish we had more to choose from in this size. I have been wanting to change cases for fun because I just like to tinker but having a hard time finding something this size and quality.


I really wish silverstone did their version of this case with the same style front panel with 2x120mm fans. The PS07B just seems too boaring up front.

THis LIAN LI PC-A04B ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112316 ) might be my next choice but with some mods like 2x120mm up top, see if a 120mm can be modded to fit the rear exhaust and a 240mm radiator up front for the cpu. What sucks is that EVERY one of those things would require cutting. Even the radiator to fit the tanks on the radiator ends.

I'd avoid that case tbh. Cable management in it is horrific. There's no space behind the mobo tray. x.x

I personally am going ITX next time around. Sugo SG08 =). Unless something better comes along... The Fractal Node 304 arriving looks very promising... :O

Yeah I have heard that and that all aluminum is noisy. Someone on here did a clean job on their though.

Dude Im giving you a +rep for sharing the node 304!! That might be my excuse to finally go itx!!

edit---
I have seen the sg08 at frys locally and gotta say it looks nice but looks tough for sure to build. I gotta look again though. Another thing I didnt like which could have just been the man handled display model, but the transition from aluminum front to steel sides wasnt as smooth as on the tj08e. Not that things were flush because they were, it just that the color and texture didnt blend as good. I will stress this was a floor model riddled with fingerprints too. I know I have seen nice builds online though.

That node is sick though. I can see mounting the swiftech micro reservoir on one of those HDD mounts, 120mm radiator in the back. Now to decide on asus itx or asrocks.

Haha. Yeah. tongue.gif. If there's room; you could fit a 92x2 rad in the front as well :O. For water cooling and heavy OC'ing; I'd go the Asus. For a silence-based rig with a mild OC; save some moolah and go the asorck ^^.

Yeah the SG08 will be a bit hard to work with but it's all good. I've got my build for it planned already... tongue.gif. Noctua NH-L12, 3570k. 8GB Ares G Skill RAM 1866, Asrock board, etc etc. The noctua cooler is the perfect cooler for that case. Cos it'll take direct air from the penetrator straight over the board and CPU/heatsink. But this won't be til next year for me... I've already got my Asus GTX 670 DCUII on the way; so that'll be part of the build as well. All this running my 2560x1440 Dell u2711 =D. Smaller machines are more fun and challenging.. Anyone can build a neat rig in a Corsair 650D or something like that... It's funny that ITX ends up costing more sometimes though haha.

That's exactly why I got it to replace my GTX 580. I've got a DCUII 580; but has weird issues if I leave the fan on Auto (which keeps it silent). And it becomes not 'silent' anymore.. Silent to me is running a game and getting full performance/good temps at the same noise level as I idle... Considering my idle is 14% on the GPU fans, and 400-500rpm on my front ap 181; and 900 odd on my noctua 92mms on my CPU heatsink... It's a hard thing to accomplish. But I'm getting there tongue.gif.

I may as well go full custom biggrin.gif
But seriously, not sure yet, I might just go get a H80. I'm going to purchase some MDPC-X soon as well, and I am also looking at moving onto a MVG sandy/ivy chip and like 16gb of ram.
