this is very true, the scythe fans perform better, are quieter and are cheaper.

But there are those of us who are willing to sacrifice a couple notches in performance for the looks of the corsair fans for aesthetic based builds tongue.gif

and then there are those of us who have corsair fans for aesthetic builds and scythe fans for benching/high performance builds tongue.gif

OK here we go, terrible quality, but you get the point...


(fruit snack!!!!)



ok, so a few things... Because I was cheep and didn't buy a rad mount i can't get a fan in the furthest back slot, well I could, but I have no access to a drill for awhile... Second, the fan closest to the front was modded in by dremmeling out a good section of the case, as the top of the case only has 240 space.. Last, i had to remove the handle, and cut out a section of the lid to allow for fan space.

Did you mod the handle back in? or did you leave it out? there was a guide on getting the fan in and getting the handle back in, though with a really heavy case i wouldnt suggest using the handle again, just for aesthetics really.

I thought about it, then decided I would only want it back on if it actually worked, and as I have no access to a rivet gun, it wouldn't.... THEN, when i decided to re-attach it for aesthetic sake, i couldn't find it.

This case must be pushing 60-70lbs. Or more, maybe i'll drop it on a bathroom scale.

(easiest way to remove a rivet: High quality drill bit, lube, patience, slow drill speed, tapered punch)

Or just remove the rivet with a dremel; cut the top and use a screw driver to push the rest out.

Going to a Case Labs too! So much room..I wonder how long it will take untill I need a pedestal again biggrin.gif

The 900D has tons of room, its just a few inches smaller than the sth10 from caselabs, but i need the absolute biggest case available outside of a custom made one for the build i plan on doing next lol.

I had much better luck with a drill over dremel. Not sure which head you used, but my basic set didn't have a proper tool I felt. but to each his own.


Iv'e been looking into the sth10... Quit messing around and go straight for the beast.
