My Baby V2 "Completely Open to Suggestions" - Page 4

post #31 of 75
Thread Starter 
OK I now love this case. Easily persuadable I know No all joking aside the more I look at it the more I LOVE it. I didn't realize there was SOOOOOO much room behind the MOBO tray and the whole layout of the case is growing on me very quickly. Definitely going to have to get this one. Looks like cable management doesn't even have to be worried about!

No this really is a monster of a case, even for $200 it would be a great value. Let me just list some great features. 90 rotated motherboard so that hot air rises out the top naturally. Two excellent AP181 fans with dust filters. 8 Expansion slots (for my motherboard that means I could fit 4 dual slot GPUs all running at x8 ). Room for up to 10 hard drives. Room for like 11 or something insane amount of fans. Room for 13" GPUs. Everything is dust filtered. Choice to open the front bays for filtered intake or leave them closed for quiet. Bottom mount PSU. Window.

Only drawbacks I can think of are: The biggest is some designs of GPU coolers will not work well in this (specifically ones where the heatpipes go downward towards the ground) but your reference GPu is exactly the type this case was designed for and therefore you will not find a better airflow case for your GPU. Only fits PSU up to 180mm IRC, so therefore your choices for things like 1200w+ will be limited. Looks for some but I like them. THe last one that slipped my mind is the HDD on the back panel can run a little hot if you have more than about 2 of them and you don't use the optional fan on that side panel. What I would do if your running mroe than 2 HHDs is either add a fan to the side panel or move all the HDDs to the front below the 5.25" drives where you can fit 6 of them and put a fan or two there or just open the vented drive covers and they will get a little airflow just from that being open. That's it, other than it being made of steel and plastic instead of aluminum and diamond it's the perfect case.

I would go ahead and order it now because amazon won't charge you until it ships and you can cancel anytime before it ships, that way you can get started on the wait time for it.

P.S. any Silverstone people reading this, your welcome and fell free to contact me for my commission.

I'm actually buying the case from Memory Express p here in Canada. That's where I'm buying all my parts for this PC from. Only a 2 hour drive to pick them up then 2 hours back!

I will for sure! I'm going to get some sick Pre-Sleeve PSU cables as well to help with the look of the case. I'm going for the most streamlined look possible. I need to stop looking at this case. The more I do the more I want it! Not until July though

Well I would actually keep looking if you can without jumping up and down, because while I tried to give you all the information you need to make your decision, it's possible that you may see something that you don't like about it and it's best to find that out before purchase if possible.

I will zip down to the local PC store this weekend and see if they have one I can look at. I've been planning this PC since February so I definately wont jump into anything. From the looks of it though that case should be able to hold anything that comes out in the next 3 - 4 years which is when I plan on doing my next build. This is a big undertaking for a 15 year old like me Gotta plan plan plan!

Plan indeed, get as much info as you can before you put your money into it, but like I said it's a great case and I will be sure to post back here again if I think of anything that may mean you will be anything but extremely happy with it. Oh I just remembered the last quasi drawback, check my previous post about the HDD possibly running hot. If you read through that massive thread I linked you to here on OCN you will see some reviews that I posted about 2 weeks ago that compare it's temperatures for all components including the HDDs, and read through that entire thread when you get time, lots of good info in there.

I want to use the Corsair AX850 power supply with this build. Does everyone think this PSU is sufficient if I plan on SLI in the future?
