My first thought was 'i7 in that case? Too hot!' but it looks like you're solving that problem with the 140mm top exhaust. Let us know how it goes!

the A05 with a blow hole up top will beat any case in terms of cooling

I don't have a wishlist lol. Only a few of these parts are from newegg, I found way better deals ordering from other sites.

Actually, the A05 cools pretty well regardless of the blowhole. The graphics card gets a little toasty without one though.

First off, Sorry for the horrible camera. My friend decided to borrow my good one without telling me. D:

DAY ONE:





I'm amazed that prolimatech started including 4 fan clips with the standard megahalems . This is going to save me A LOT of time


Hopefully, my camera will be back with me tomorrow

Did you get the T-LM14B-2 from Newegg?? I've had absolutely no luck locating one of these tops.

Are you planning on using the 140mm as an exhaust or intake? Are you using the standard back-to-front airflow on your case?

No, I managed to get one off frozenCPU for 40 bucks, but got a phone call later that day saying that they don't have any in stock to ship, so I had them refund me. I was planning to use the 140mm fan to suck out air from the case since hot air rises, but now I have to wait for newegg to get some stock in, or wait for another middle man to notify me.


Anywho, I pretty much have EVERYTHING except my motherboard and processor. So I've decided to wait till Friday to update this thread with good quality pictures.
