My Sweet New Beige Full Tower - Page 2

post #11 of 17
I actually owned one of those cases and it makes an excellent mod case especially for water cooling.
where that shelf is I cut out the one connector on the open side to make it nice and clean then cut a window into
the side panel removed the rear hdd cage mounted a external transmission cooler up there for the radiator with 6 120s in push pull.

and the darn thing is built like a tank.


Hmmm wonder what I did with that case so long agoo.

Why don't modern cases have a removable motherboard tray? That's such a great idea.

quite a few still do but it does drive the cost up so if a manufacturer is trying to stay within a lower price range the removable tray seems to be the 1st thing to go. seems like the focus is on wire management and access holes in the mobo tray now

i never really got much out of the removable trays i owned. you still have to disconnect alot to slide the tray out and with the access holes for the cpu/nb many manufacturers include now the removable trays seem less necessary

The only reason I would really like a removable tray is because it is so difficult to get the motherboard in the case (in my experiences anyway). It's not that I want to remove my motherboard every other hour I just had the hardest time maneuvering my hands in the case.

That is exactly the case I've been using for the last 4 years!
I got it from a computer recycling place for a whooping 10 bucks!
It had a server motherboard with dual Pentium 2's processors smile.gif

the mod I did for cooling was drill the "fake" squares on the bottom of the plastic front and put a 120 mm fan as an intake to cool stuff...
also I've put 2 x 80 mm fans at the top for a better exhaust
that thing is a STRONG case... and my computer is named "Bubba" biggrin.gif

the only problem I've ever had is that you can't really put in a big CPU heatsink as it won't fit... so I never got into overclocking my Q6600... but it will fit any video card, no matter how long it is! you can mount the hard drives either under the CD spaces or over the PSU... I prefer over the PSU as it is totally out of the way when you want to play inside the case...

anyway, good luck to you!
