Lol I just threw out that case a month ago. I thought it was really cool. It was from an old P4 Gateway I had.

what? do you even know what your talking about, i know its a bit late but that is a complete lot of utter crap you just came out with, oh deary me.

Your case plain out suck's.. you can polish a turd but it's still a Pile of crap.

you can mod as many fan's into as possible. or drill as many holes as u want... but it was never made to hold a high end system.

of course it can. but effectiveness and effecincy are still greatly called into question, these are valid point's.
Temps are just fine... like i said before a few times now... if i can pull the cover off, and see absolute no change in temp. guess what that means? the air flow withen the case is doing its job when the case is closed.

but imagine how good your airflow would be in a actuall good case.

Your case has proper airflow perhaps. ill accept this. however looking at how good it actually is is another thing. it suck's. plain and simple.

just get a CM690II or something.. god..

If u get a large case, Kudos goes to the robber who can stroll out of your place with it.

/implying u would get robbed.

my HAF X fully loaded is 55+ LBS, and rather large. im not concerned it might be stolen. i tell anyone who walks in my house if u want to steal it be my guest, if you can sucessfuly get it out my house it's your's
