Like I said , must be the age in me , cause I have never really had a problem with fan noise , heat comes with the teritory (good coolinig prevents that) and power draw , well... I guess it would suck to pay the light bill, but really does it cost more than a night out on the town , or a concert , or hell even a movie?

The HAF is a pretty loud case , its wide open by design , so I am sure that would make the gtx400 series seem even louder , but I guess its like putting glass packs on a 76 stingray , boy does it sound sweet when you mash the gas....


Anyways ,
mod weekend, thinking about trying sleeving . its all black right now , trying to figure out what would look good in a black and blue haf?? Blue , but with blue lighting , prolly wouldn't look right . Do they even make silver sleeving??
any ideas??
Yeah, well I guess if you don't mind your graphics card running at near 100°C on load whilst sounding like a 747 then fermi would be the perfect card for you . Maybe it's not a problem in America but power really is an issue for me as energy bills aren't cheap in Australia when your pc is on 24/7.
I really don't want to start a ATi/Nvidia flame war because this is a HAF forum, but Nvidia fan camp must be a little pissed because fermi came 6 months late to the dx11 game with a card that's only slightly better than 5870, where Nvidia usually trounces ATi, and is more expensive?? Again, I really don't want to start an arguement, just my thoughts.

OK guys, as ahdubious pointed out, this is the HAF club. Plz keep talk of anything but that which is realted directly to these cases elsewhere in the forums! Afterall, people come here to read up on these cases, not which is the hottest mobo or GPU at the moment (no joke intended). Lets stay on topic. Thanks!

I think you miss understand , I would say the same thing about ati , its not a fanboy thing , Its just a point of view that fan noise , especially in a HAF is like the muffler on a classic Detroit muscle car , its a soothing and awe inspiring sound that makes our hearts jump with joy at the sound.
I do see your point , as electricity may be expensive as hell where you are . I however don't seem to think that here , for me , in reality the power comsumption adds up to more than 10-15 dollars extra a month on a power bill .But again , ATI or nVIdia , Intel or AMD , extreme rigs .... well they are a money hole and its acceptable to those who have the passion for it.

As well as I think , ATI fans should also be upset that fermi isn't what it was supposed to be If fermi kick arse like a bad dawg , then ATI would either start a price war , or come out with a better card , and both situations are great for all in the long run , competition leads to better choices for us consumers. I personally like nVidia , but I really love it when ATI has the fastest card on the planet , cause that puts pressure on nVidia to do better or cheaper , or both . I love ATI for this , I paid no more than 150 dollars for either of my GTX 260 core 216's , and that all because the competetion from ATI was hot and it forces the prices down!!

*COUGH!!!*

But what if the talk concerns a member who is having MoBo issues and he's looking for an assist? No offense FoB, this is your baby but of 600+ posts if people have issues seeing how solid this case is then they are walk into doorjambs blind.

Either that or they tip over HAFs' as a matter of stupidity (On topic no?) and probably shouldn't get one. j/k

Sometimes we need to stretch our mental legs as it were.

If there is a member with mobo problems needing help, why look for it in the Computer Case section in the first place? There is another whole section in the forums for that sort of thing and if you need to stretch your mental legs, plz feel free to wander over there. Too many times has someone asked about whats the best mobo or GPU to get followed by someone else giving an opinion which then someone else disagrees with and all of a sudden were debating on AMD vs Intel or ATI vs nVidia. There is a place for that and its not here.

I also don't have a problem with questions/help being repeated as people come and go in this club. I enjoyed asking questions after I arrived and finding out about this case followed closly by answering them with what I'd found out and been told long after those who answered my questions had left. Soon I'll be leaving and all those getting the HAF now will be answering questions perhaps with stuff I told them about.

I just think that is club is special and that theres so much info here from so many people but realistically, what new member is going to go back and read page 46... Some of the best ever HAF builds may never be looked upon again more and more as this club grows larger and larger. But if it is yet to grow, I just want it to grow with new ideas/mods and awesome pics of sweet builds from new members, not off topic stuff.

Wow, don't know what came over me. Maybe that was my parting speach.

I could not agree even more with you, a big +1.

It's all good FoB. We all have one of those in us someplace.

I agree that it should be kept to a minimum though. I like my favorite thread. I think if you looked at my posts well over 2/3 of them are here in the HAF Club. Would hate to see it taken over by flame wars over off topic issues.

agg... , well I had a good post , but internet dropped off...

anyways , my apologies if I started a war , wasn't my intent , just wanted to voice my disagreement with fan noise and heat being a problem , especially in a HAF case


anyways ,

Want to mod the case a little , maybe some sleeving , I am black and blue themed now , all the existing sleeving is black , maybe a different color?? Prolly head down to Microcenter , which by the way I found out about here on this thread while reading thru all the posts , and see if anything catches my eye

is it really hard to pull the pins out of the molex and such without that tool that ppc's sells (also foundout about that on this thread)??

maybe i should try the whole feet thing again , Home depot didn't have any casters that were the right hole size , and I dont like all the chrome on the metal that the casters have , can you even paint over that "chrome" with flat black??
