350D is not a terrible case. It's just no as value for money if you're expecting to get decent/good thermal performance from it.
Both the TJ08-E and 350D are great case no doubt. The only difference is not everyone has as much disposable income as others.
GT = Scythe Gentle Typhoon
You would have to remove the "tool less clips" and drill extra holes to do so.
Ah my fault, I know (ofc) of the gentle typhoon, just had no idea of the acronym
. I see where your coming from and either way, all your review does is reveal some good info. I personally find the fans that came with mine (350D) to suffice, but as you said this is an enthusiast forum and nothing but perfection is tolerated by some. You are correct about the 350D's thermal performance out of the box, especially with only 2 fans. I just dont think the price comparison was fair due to the fact that both cases WILL work out-of-box, but to each his own.
