I've been trying to find some reviews that compare both units but I've found nothing so far. Maybe its because the NH C12P SE14 is an older CPU cooler.

EDIT: I just looked at the pictures on the Newegg page and I just realized how big the fans were. I think it can fit with 2 fans but I don't think it will with the stock ones.

What kind of temps are you getting idle and under load? I'm considering the NH-C12P SE14 as well as the NH-C14:

I guess I'll just have to stick with just my Black #228 for now! Makes me appreciate all the hard work and everything else that has gone into making these even more. thumb.gif

Missed it also... Hopefully they do another sale sometime later based on the demand for this case.

Edit: Also, I wish there was a way to filter out those that actually wanted the case from those that want to sell for profit. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif http://www.ebay.com/itm/141204361431?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

I've used both in the NCASE M1. Cooling an i7-4770K, the C14 stays around 69-72C when running Prime95. The C12P stays around 74-77C. When running Furmark on my GTX 780 (reference blower), I also noticed that the C12P seemed to absorb the ambient heat from the GPU, pushing the temps at ~80C. The C14's temps stayed about the same.

The C14 is the cooler to go with if CPU temps are your priority. I actually ended up sticking with the C12P though, as the ambient temp from the GPU spiked my HDD (installed on the bottom of the case when using the C14) to ~55C when running a game. The C12P allows for the use of the HDD bracket which keeps my HDD temp to ~35C.

Well, I don't plan on OC'ing or running Prime95. I might run Planetside 2 for a couple hours, but most of the time I'm just websurfing or doing work.

I'll probably be using an i5-2500K, an ITX board of some sort, air cooling, and a full size PSU (worried about SFX PSUs like the Silverstone 450W and its noisy fan).

With a stock i7 4770k on Battlefield 4, I got about 60c after about 2 hours of gameplay; 63c~ish was the highest I've seen it on a really warm day. In games like Dota 2 I get about 52c. 54c on the hottest core on a warm day. I'm not planning to overclock either my 780ti or and/or 4770k until I can buy one of Silverstone's 600 watt SFX PSU when it gets released later this year.

Regarding the Silverstone SFX PSU, yeah the fan can get a bit noisy. I game with headphones most of the time, but even when I game with speakers its not too bad. Its only really loud on graphics intensive games. and its usually pretty quiet when I play Dota 2.

EDIT: One thing that I forgot to mention is that these CPU temps that I got were with Noctua's Ultra Low Noise adapter. I wanted to have a quieter PC, and I'm ok with these temps. I remember playing some Crysis 2 without any of Noctua's adapters and and my 4770k never went above 50c. I think Crysis 2 is more GPU intensive than CPU though.

charww over on HardForum has designed a carry bag for the M1, looks like a good option for anybody who travels with their M1

A $200+ case that isn't even available. I don't get the hype.
