I'd go with the Shinobi or the Source 210 for a singular reason: Cable Management.

That In-Win case has negligible cable management, and as such, its going to be a mess inside that case. Then you are going to be looking at a nicely done exterior chassis (albeit flamboyant), but are going to be looking through that gigantic windowed side panel and seeing a mess of cables because of the severe lack of cable management.

Its not an awful case by any stretch of the imagination, but it does lack in a few features that show up in cases that cost quite a bit less.

As for you guys bashing TR2 PSUs..They really are pretty good.
I've been running one for 3 years now..and I abuse it often.
It provides cleaner power than the GS800 I had.

I had a garbage Raidmax PSU running a side PC for a long time, it did fine but it didn't mean it wasn't crap. Another problem with the TR2's is there has been 3? different types with same names.

thumb.gif Kin has a point, you can manage them but it's hard to hide them in that but it's still fairly decent for the money. You can look into the NZXT M59 too, and the Gamma.

Its not restrictive at all in terms of airflow to the point where you'd notice. Maybe a 2-5C difference between this and.......lets say a Corsair 540R (their new airflow case). That's not going to make or break anything in your case. And it definitely won't break the bank like the 540R is going to.


To put it plainly, its nowhere near as restrictive as it looks.

thanks for the tip. I changed the video card from the Powercolor AX7950 to a Sapphire Flex 7950 with boost. The Powercolor had ok reviews but not great was only 30 more

Sory are you drunk?

First off the Rosewill Green is not very good

Secondd there are 3 TT TR2 the old ultra crappy HEC made TR2 which is TRASH the newer FSP made model with a P in the name and the brand new CWT made TR2

Saying TR2 is not bad is or good is so vauge an answer that i would call it bad advice you need to say which one you are talking about

Last cheaping out on a PSU is never a good idea

If you have a HEC made TR2 then i hope you have a backup PC
