I was just about to pick up one of these cases, as I've finally acquired all the parts I wanted when I just found out from my local parts shop, this case is end of life and they can no longer source any more.. Is this really true? Is there a successor?

Short answer- NO.

Hi guys. Sorry for my english.
I have one question, maybe you can help me.
Corsair H80i have a little problem with fit to this case (if you want use sli/crossfire in the future). Does H75 AIO has the same problem with his slim rad? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
This is mine SG09.

I have a corsair H80i in my case, it can fit with SLI, you just need to slightly bent the top part of the case where you screw in the top fan about 1mm or so, you can use your hand to bend the case its pretty simple.

Well I managed to fit the monster of a D15 and my 780 DC2 in this little beast, I now just need to get my hands on 2 980's to fill this box up completely. I'm rather impressed with the cooling have all my fan profiles on low my 4930k is staying under 55C @ 4.2GHz and my 780 at 1200 core tops out at 80C which isn't bad considering the cpu cooler is blowing on it.

^to clarify, you are pulling in top down and blowing onto your GPU? Wouldn't you want to switch that around and blow out the top?

Thought about it I would end up with negative air pressure(very dusty area so no) and seeing as I don't have any fans on the side the CPU cooler would be getting all the hot air from the gpu. I adjusted the GPU fan curve so now it doesn't go over 75c tiny bit louder but the dc2's aren't loud to begin with so its no big deal.

you could maybe shroud something up to pull in from the rear 120mm (if one fits?) and push straight out the top? If you have a blower-style GPU there might be some warm air you're contending with coming out the back, but it might be worth trying.

If dust is a problem you'd probably need to mod up some sort of dust filters of course. I've personally not seen my Titan in the 70's, IIRC. I think it usually hovers in the 65c-68c range on load.

Anyway, best of luck. I know it is all easier said than done going in there and swapping fans around. It is a good setup and if it gets you where you want then all is good. thumb.gif

I've always been use too this 780 sitting in the 70's hell even in my 350D with two 140's blowing cold air on it lol, and unfortunately its a bit tricky with airflow and my platform I have to pay a lot of attention too the cooling of the VRM/mosfits which the setup i'm using now really shines that top 180 is directly blowing on it. The only reason I say this is because this board becomes a crashing mess, when the vrm temps start to climb up (I had it watercooled for the longest time just to avoid it).

Hey Everyone,

I have been working on designing a compact, quiet as possible audio/light gaming build. I was originally planning on going for an aerocool ds or some other low-noise optimized case, but after extensive research... hell, I just can't resist how small this case is. In any event, I was originally planning on going for a fanless seasonic platinum psu, and possibly even running a fanless Thermalright Macho. Am I insane to consider this? I think I might be able to get away with it, given that my build comes out to only 235w of power (According to pc part picker), and I can't see myself adding huge amounts to this. I was planning on adding some noctua fans to keep it quiet, and a 180mm enermax up top (unless someone knows a better quiet 180mm fan).

Thoughts? here's my current parts list:

At most I could see myself upgrading in the future to a faster graphics card, broadwell cpu, and more/faster memory, but part of the idea of this build is to keep power consumption down in an effort to keep noise down on usb/firewire connections to external audio equipment- but I'm not sure how much of a difference this will make. I've even been consideting a GTX 760- but i'm not sure- the price difference might be the cost of all the fans I will probably need.

In any event, the idea I had was to fill all the fan slots with <10db fans (except the 180mm because that doesen't exist- perhaps I could get there with undervolting, if I could get away with it heat-wise), and thus have enough quiet cooling to keep my graphics card from spinning up and becoming loud.

The other option I was considering was an overspec'd be quiet, seasonic x-series, or other quiet psu (with enough power on tap that it hopefully never even has to turn its fan on). As far as the CPU cooler goes, I figure I could always add a quiet fan if necessary.

What do you guys think?
