Of course we do, but it doesn't line up with the CPU's location because the case is 5 years older than the motherboard. The location of the CPU has changed since the case was created. So now that tube is useless.

 

rhayy mentioned this in his original post by saying, "You can see that the vent is not in front of the cpu fan.".

 

Am I the only one who has read every single word in rhayy's original post and looked at every photo?! Does it look like it's lined up to you? http://cdn.overclock.net/0/00/008d90bf_side.jpeg

 

It's clearly not lined up. It's not even close.

Sigh. I'm not new to computers. I got my first computer back in 1995. Even then, I wasn't new to computers. It was simply the first one that I had at home. That's all.

Why you are just a young whipper-snapper in computers. tongue.gif My first was Commodore 64 in'84 .. with a phone modem to access university mainframe..

Literally a phone hand set put into modem


Few years later I got an IBM XT Turbo. with with 8088 processor running a super 4.77MHz with 128kb memory and 2x 20mb harddrives! That was a huge amount of storage. So much we couldn't imagine every need more .. and that was using one for backup because of reliability issues.

Here's my take on this. if you have any 80mm fans laying around, go ahead and try them in the old case to see what happens. DO NOT spend any money on 80mm fans unless you are buying them for a quarter a piece from a friend. 120/140mm fans have become the standard for 90% of PC cases now and with good reason. they are quieter and generate more airflow than the 80mm fans.

if you dont have any fans laying around, get a new case..
Oh and in regards to your comment about going with a smaller 1155 build, this may be a good substitute board. > http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131878&cm_re=1155-_-13-131-878-_-Product

Oh I guess I forgot about the Commodore 64 that I had. lol I may be 36 years old, but I'm no stranger to that computer.

there are obviously more case options available but these are just the ones I would likely use for a budget build. considering you will be spending at least 70 on a matx 1155 motherboard that's worth buying, i would say just get a different case and call it a day.

I wouldn't go ITX and probalby not m ATX either. There are some nice ATX cases that are not too large.

Reasoning is m-ATX (ITX even more so) cases often don't have enough venting to get good airflow. It is much easier to setup a nice small ATX case than these smaller motherboard format cases.

Fractal Design make nice cases.
So does Phanteks

if you are getting an matx tower the airflow is typically on par with atx cases BUT then the only difference between cases is 3 expansion slots. not much difference if you're actually looking to decrease the case footprint.
i love my fractal arc mini r2. only complaint is i cant have a rear fan installed with the top 240 rad in...
