small cases like sg08 for example, the gpu draws/exhausts air directly
from/to the outside of the case. the cpu doesn't have cooling problem either because the single
180mm fan is more than enough to refresh the air inside the tiny case, try to use just a single fan in a cosmos 2 and let's see if you components won't overheat.
with that said, i doubt that the titan gpu inside this Digital Storm Bolt will run hotter than when installed in a normal case, i'm willing to bet that it will even run cooler because it draws fresh air directly from outside, unlike normal cases wich relies on the case fans to bring fresh air inside the case.
All true and wise about the titan and the sg08
but the DS Bolt has a very poor CPU cooler
The problem with these so-called reviews mentioned in the OP is that neither review didn't actually do any proper testing of the case. The blogger guy left the i7 on stock volts - it's a very cool chip like that - produces under 60W of heat. The Titan has a function to limit itself by temperature. He didn't make any measurements of power consumption or noise, and FPS measurements without comparing to anthing else (so that you can't see that it's undervolting itself). All he said was that it was quiet when idling in a game, which is subjective and useless information. Based on this review the OP seems to presume it will be "simply amazing"
when you pick their optional 4.8GHz CPU overclock and stick a 690 in it.
What I want to see is one of these cases reviewed by someone who isn't obviously getting to keep the case and the hardware afterwards
