Soprano DX --> Question and Thoughts

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Here's a link to the case on Newegg:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133040

For those that may have the case, I was wondering if the front door has vents on it to allow cool air to be taken in through it, since the fan is behind the door.

Other than that, this may be the case of my next build, or atleast an upgrade from what I have now. What do you think of the case?

Thanks :]

The front of the case is not perforated in any way, but there is a rather sizable gap at the bottom of the front door for air intake.

If you own or thinking about getting a Geforce 8800, forget about the Soprano DX. I *was* going to get one myself until I found out that you have to remove the whole HDD cage to fit those monsters in. Since I have 6 hard drives, I opted for the TT Armor.

Cool! they've changed the fans to fancy blue ones, and the front fan grille looks worse than the original! how inventive of them.

but.. the side fan still just blows on the top of my freezer7 pointlessly, the back fan isnt in line with my freezer7, it still has a gay locking mechanism, i swapped the fans out anyway for decent ones and i hacked a hole where the front grill should be for better airflow anyway.

im glad they've hinged the side panel though, im always losing sidpanels, i mean, i put 'em down and dont have a clue where i leave em

its an improvement, albeit a lazy one

I have one for sale on ebay.
The side is not hinged, they fooled me with that pic too.
I do like the look of the front, but when you open it it feels like you are opening a fridge.
My 8800 gtx fit fine, only loose 2 hd bays.
