Great Review it sucks that you cant use a fan controller and have the door closed could always remove it though.

There's ways around that though so not all hope is lost.

You might be able to figure out a way to deep-set the fan controller.

I want this case soooooooooooo bad.

Don't forget that you can at least use the Sentry 2 (only if you like it).
