I found this thread after it reached page 165 so forgive me if this has been answered. Since I have heard this isn't the friendliest case for air-cooling, what are people's experiences with video cards that don't exhaust out the back? They are typically much quieter because of their bigger and slower fans, but I don't know if they'd be suited to the case's airflow (or apparently lack thereof).

Not sure how you figure, it's not small really cuz its a large midtower case, but other than that, air cooling hasnt been a problem for me. And this case is extremely quiet.... without the stock fans/fan controller.

the temps inside, in my opinion, are very acceptable, I have never seen my case temp go over 34°C and my GPU has never even hit 60°C during gaming/benching (Furmark excluded because I don't have that). So in my opinion, GPUs that exhaust air into the case are perfectly fine.

He said he wanted a small, extremely quiet, and good air flow.

This case is not for that. Stock.

3 180mm fan vs 2 120mm fans?

Stock this case is very loud. You need to cut the mesh out and get quiet fans to make it quiet.

And the airflow is OK...

The looks though, I love it.

getting a decent fan controller helps tremendously as well though.

Yea, but even with the stock fans they are still loud. I still need to get some better after market ones myself lol.

My Bitfenix Spectre pros are due to arrive sometime next week (together with a Crucial M4 biggrin.gif ). I'll post a comparison (noise, airflow, etc) once I get the fans installed.
