How is this case rated stock? I see alot of people say the fans are crap, yet I see others say that it's dropped their cpu temps by 10 degrees.

Goign from my mATX case I should see a fair improvement, shouldn't I?

A lot of variables there in regards to peeps' temp drops...But overall the design should give you a drop. I cant speak directly for the case itself because I also upgraded the CPU cooler at the same time. I am seeing over 10*C drops for sure though.

The front 230mm fan is a joke, and the other 2 are decent but not great. My room temp is about 21*C at the most, so naturally with all that airflow, my system stays nice and cool.

Its a wonderful case and I will always recommend it, but you should know not to expect a lot from the stock 230mm's I switched them out for higher CFM fans and put them on a controller.

The temps were pretty good with the stock fans for me. I upgraded the fans in steps:

I put an antec tricool on the top and one on the bottom and that dropped my temp a few degrees. (cpu temp dropped 2 or 3 and the video card dropped about the same)

I change my config to 2 antecs on bottom, a TT thunderblade on top, and 2 on my cooler and that dropped my another 4 or 5 degrees. (cpu temp dropped 4 or 5 and the video card dropped 2 or 3)

And the biggest difference was changing my side 23cm fan. I replaced it with 4 Scythe S-Flexes. They dropped my cpu another 2 or 3 degrees and it dropped my gtx 260 20 or 30.

The airflow is great in this case even with the shoddy 23cm fans. If you spend the extra money to replace the fans, you can drop your temps a fantastic amount.

Thanks guys.. I think things are turning out pretty good with it as well. I too am pretty much poor. I bought my last pc that built with my tax return last year. I had my system for just a year until i had that itch to do something different. So i sold my old system to a friend of mine. So with each payment i get from him i get to buy something new for this project. It's a win win situation. My friend got the pc of his dreams and i get to build another pc hopefully a better one. I'll keep pictures coming as things progress.

Nice work, the classified is sweet. I just hope you'll be adding triple SLI to that baby. or at least SLI and a physx card.

Also edgy.. yes you should see a drop in temps with a bigger case, better airflow. For starters you have a sweet system, in a TINY case, with a ghetto CPU cooler. with a better cooler, that Q9550 could hit 4.0 Ghz with the same temps you have now, or better. I'd get a good airflow case like the CM690, the HAF 932, or the Antec 900 and you'd have some better temps.

I have a xigmatek s1283 that I can't use in my current case, I think a HAF and the bolt through mounting kit are going to be my next purchases.

I'll keep my matx board for now as it is great for my needs, logical next step will be an i7 anyway, just not yet!

On question - If I ditch the front fan and replace it with a 120mm antec tricool will it be better or worse than the stock fan? I really really don't like the red as daft as it may sound!

Thanks xguntherc, i do plan on using the classified board to it's potential. It's really exciting just thinking about it. I followed your build from start to finish very carefully, and i really enjoyed everything you did with your build, including all the pictures. How's everything running? If you could of did anything different what would that be? I have my I7 920 with the heatkiller on it's way. Im then just going over how i'm going to do my loop. For now im just getting for the cpu. As you may have seen i got my hands on 1 triple fesser, im sure ill be getting another down the road. I'll proably get the same pump you did, a multi option res, and some 7/16 red tubing. Can i use 120x38mm fans? Or will they need to be 120x20 or 25mm? I'm mounting the triple rad just how you did with the fans pulling in air from the top. Next i'll be getting some of those new corsair dominator gt's, and a couple raptors. I should be able to fire some stuff up from there and play around alittle until i get my gpu's. I'm looking at those evga hydro 285's. They look nice. I've also looked at the 295's. Who know's by the that time there may be some other choices to hold out for. Like i've said im taking my time on this one and going to enjoy every minute doing so. Sorry for the long post. I had alot i wanted to say.
