Here it is:

Looks like some nice airflow across the Mainboard. An added bonus is that it looks like larger HSF's will fit!

Jeez! sorry for editing my edit but the fans are 80's. IMO 120's are superior in the CFM to dBa ratio.

because Danger Den is a small manufacture. They sell on their site, a couple other small websites and a couple retail store. Microcenter being one of them. They don't deal with massive quantity like all the big case makers. And I think those danger den cases are a danger den store exclusive

I am looking into purchasing the 'water box' that they manufacture. Similar setup.

*You can get 80-120mm adapters for the fans, they are UV reactive and help channel the airflow nicely.
post #8 of 11
Got to be careful with the adapters though...I tried them ad learned something very interesting. If you are using it in conjunction with a HS it will not do what you think. The clearance between the fan blades and the housing of the fan is rather large and the "extra air" that you thought would go through the HS doesn't...it comes right back out through that gap. Very suprising. As to the case...it looks good but I personally would go for a regular case for 2 reasons: 1) Real estate...that thing looks like it needs a good sized desk & 2) there is no air supply aimed at the CPU HS as you would get in a traditional side panel fan. The reason I see this as an issue is look at that video card stick up...that is a HUGE deflector of air that would normally go across the mobo. Worse yet, as does with rivers and rapids, that could create an eddy that would trap a bubble of warm air and encourage the ariflow to skip right over. For those who saw the episode of Myth Busters where they tested the 2 trucks for gas mileage withthe gate up vs down...this is the same effect that they showed with the oatmeal.

Well, from looking at it as best I can given the minimal images DD has of it I will say that the waterbox is a different animal with different issues. No, it doesn't have the issue that I described with the airbox, however the waterbox (JMHO) doesn't offer a lot of flexibility and could likely be a little better executed. First, it looks that the case has no other venting but the slots in the upper area above the mobo ports (intake) and then the two 120 holes on the bottom intended for your radiator (exhaust). First, the intake area looks to be about half that of the exhaust. It does look like the PCI slots are always open if not blocked by a card though, so that will help. The bigger issue I have is that there are other heat sources besides just the CPU and GPU. The point is that as the air comes into the case and makes its way to the radiator it is going to heat up. If we are shooting for maximum cooling using ambient on a water system you will want fresh ambient air (likely the coolest air) going through that rad...which won't be happening in this case, especially since all the intakes are above the mobo and the rad is below it. I would have prefered to see some intakes on the lower chamber that would in effect be "dedicated" to the rad.

I will say though that DD has been in the cooling hardware arena for some time so I would be prone to think they know what is going on so ultimately I may not be right or my issues may be correct but only in the theoretical sense...meaning the overall impact is negligible. Yes, it is a sharp looking case and a great starting point, but I think there are definite ways to make both of them better.
