Just got my BlackHawk Ultra in!!!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Upgrading from an antec 1200. The antec 1200 was too small for my x79 board. It covered all the cable routing holes i normally used so it was basically a huge mess. Ive been looking to upgrade to the blackhawk ultra and finally here it is. I am in the process of doing work to it like changing red leds to blue leds, adding a few fans, sleeving, and waiting for my new gpus and ssd to come in.







swapped out the red leds to blue leds

How much did you pay for the case? I could get one for 130 usd including shipping, good deal?

I really like the case, very tempted to buy it just so I can stick 9 loud fans to the side panel and wear ear protection while gaming.

I paid 189.99. 130 is a great deal i wish i would have seen that one lol. 189 is the best i could find. Yeah 9 loud fans would prolly be stupid but hey if thats what u want go for it. The fans stock are fairly quiet. I think it might be quieter than my antec 1200 tho i dont have a legit way to measure that.

I'm in finland, can't buy from newegg, got some guy reselling it in a unopened box for 130. I think I'll put 2 230 to the side panel and then 3 140's and have 1 230 at the top. that would also allow me to install the psu top.

Is it actually possible to install 2 big fans to the side panel? Side 1 x 230mm Fan (pre-installed) or 9 x 120mm Fan (option)
So many holes but no hole for double 230.

Darn it, I didn't get the case, the seller sold the case to someone else outside of the auction (Against the rules of the auction site), or thats what he/she said, probably to get out from having to pay the shipping for it. Its a heavy case and shipping it wouldn't be cheap. Email was faked.

good luck with your case, I see you added some drives? biggrin.gif
