Interested in that Taku. Would require a few minutes with the dremel tho, so it could fit a proper cooler.

The Apple trashcan tribute seems well done too, for those into the trashcan genre.
I guess. Apple are a packaged system and Cryorgig is just a case designed to use conventional components. Tthey are similar in that both are cylindrical and have top venting, that is about all.

Oh! How is that cooler mounted? tongue.gif

I used to use a base to raise case so I could slide keyboard under it. thumb.gif

Thanks, I'd mount it to my H7 since the original fan gave out within a few weeks of ownership and blew oil all over itself.

Why not just get a warranty replacement? It's the same fan, but in the balanced version.

I sent them an e-mail and they responded just a few hours ago. I don't know if they'll replace it because I threw the fan away because it was a mess.

I know where you can get a 2nd fan for the m9i right now, cost you $19.99 (but comes with a spare heatsink) biggrin.gif

Or could go with the similar performing TR 92mm here for half as much.

True. I don't think you can get another otherwise. Well i emailed them will see, but that's an option.
I was looking at the Thermaltakes yeah, love the black/white, but that cryorig fan is much better and would seem the only reason the m9i can hold it's own so well for it's size.

My case is perfectly fine. rolleyes.gif As good as any case made today. So that has nothing to do with hitting 5Ghz. The m9i or the mobo or ram will be the factor.

It's really dumb to argue about the case. Long ago I have proved it to friends and my brothers face until they said yeah you are right. Hence my brother has the same case, lol. He was going to buy an Antec 900 like my old roomates and i said nah you don't need it. And so we all stood there in my Apt, my roomate and i basically had the same system except for case and cpu, ( he had a quad core - which i told him he didn't need at the time just to play WOW, but he was an idiot ) so in two different rooms- both had the same AC in our windows-and low and behold. My PC was overclocked and my roomates wasn't because he's a wussy, and our temps were basically exactly the same lol. All them fan in that Antec and our temps were the same. And right then and there my brother ordered the same damn case off newegg, on my account, which i have opened right here looking at my purchase history. And he still has this case. Shrug. I know people like to have some reason that makes them feel justified for spending more money, lol. I like spending less and getting basically the same performance or reliability, and i am usually successful because i will wait until i find the right thing. Even if it takes longer.

More proof is on this very page a 45$ case that's basically exactly like mine (with one extra fan in it ) and a bigger HS seems to be perfectly fine. I can put two or 3 fans in the front of mine if i wanted to, theres room in the drive cages. I've never need it. That's what i am saying, lol. And look, i haven't burned my house down rolleyes.gif

So as long as you aren't purely overclocking for posting meaningless results on 3dmark for 15-25 year olds to drool over. And you just use your pc for more things than just playing games, then a decent OC boost 400-600Mhz and any decent case with marginally good flow with two fans is fine. I'm not trying to argue, but when someone says something that is really not quite true trying to sell someone on some case they really don;t need. I will say something. Because there's too much stupidity out there like. Oh well, i know people hate that. Tough.

I've actually looked at every case available today out there and i don't like any of them, lol. The only tower case i really like in the slightest is the Ek Vulture and is not sold. mad.gif

So I'll try for at least a modest 4.6Ghz on the m9i and try for higher "for fun" 4.8Ghz - meaning if it sticks at all - and no stability issues related to temps - then it's a success. And i'll post if i succeed or fail here.
If i have to add another fan finally in 2016 due to a new cpus higher tdp. Fine. I have the extra one i bought 10 years ago with this case still in it's box that i never had to use wink.gif Still going to be in this 10 year old 89 dollar NZXT case though no matter what it's clocked too. thumb.gif

Be in the next few months though when i have figured out what parts i will be purchasing.

I was only poking some fun for your personal choice to defend a case you dearly love with vast quantities of prose that proves nothing more than your ability to write vast quantities of prose. Your case is perfectly fine for you for your requirements. I have no argument with that. You like it's look, that's cool. It's all sorts of fugly to my eyes, but that's just my taste. Your 10 year old case is as good as any case made today, for you.

Here's the thing. If you really want to make the case that any old case is good as any other case, you gotta show the numbers to us, not your brother. Read doyll's post on internal case temp monitoring - It's a simple, cheap way to verify your strongly held case. Comparing the ambient room temp with the temp reading at the cooler intake reveals how well the case is supplying cool air to the cooler. In all cases the cooler intake temp will be higher than room ambient - the goal is minimize the gradient.

While your case with a modest overclock with a little 92mm cooler might be a good balance, it's not enough to build a case for air cooling doctrine. For example, if we put my OC'd hex-core Xeon with it's D15 from my render box in your case, I can pretty much guarantee it will run much hotter than it does in its modded for airflow HAF XB home, where the gradient between room temp and cooler intake temp is 2c at full load.

Also with the limited intake flow, installing a more demanding air flow cooler and your case becomes a negative pressure dust bunny sanctuary. Maybe dust is not a consideration in your environment. For many it is. And why cases with filtered intakes with multiple fans are required.

I use my PCs for work. Hard, tough work that can never be completed fast enough. Motion graphic rendering/animation, video editing, music production and software development. Marginally good air flow isn't good enough. I need excellent, optimized, quiet airflow.

I'm not advocating that everyone must buy $100+ cases, quite the opposite. Most cases regardless of price are air flow compromised, some more than others. I haven't yet bought a case that I didn't have to mod to improve air flow and filtering.

Anyhow, will bow out of this thread. Arguing about personal case requirements is about as useful as stating a $200 Les Paul copy is good enough for any guitarist.

Have fun with your new build in its old home!

Yeah i type a lot, sorry. I also read a lot. It's not a problem for me like some in this 140 characters or less fruit gnat attention span world, ( not aiming at you ).

While i quoted you, the rest is just general speak on the topic. Not sure if you read it though because everything you said i addressed in one way or another. You basically said what i said or addressed in your own words.

And a 200 dollar Les Paul copy is good enough for any guitarist. All guitars need to be set up. I can make any piece of junk play good.

What ciarlatano posted sums it up nicely.


I know many guitarists, both amateur and professional. None would agree with you and very few have guitars that are worth less than $200 but maybe for backpacking and playing around a campfire.

While many needed setup, many were as 'setup' as good as is possible to do .. as is any hand built / custom guitar purchased from luthier, usually the one who made them. But they are like any fine piece, they do need adjustments and resets made over time.
