Micro ATX case that you could stick an ATI 6990? - Page 3

post #21 of 29
Hi people.I'm really curious.If I took out the hdd bay in the elite 341 and I fit my harddisk on to the top 3.5" bay, will it get hot? Is it really safe to just allow the hdd not exposed to the air blown by the fan?

Antec P180 Mini - Best mATX case out there in my opinion.

Stay FAAAAAAR away from the Thermaltake A30. Looks like its based off of the Lanbox lite, which had:


- non-existent cable management

- puny, non standard sized fans: front intake is mostly blocked by HDD cage, fans at the back have bearings that last less than a yr before rattling the case into fine powder

- horrible fit and finish, causing you to scratch every last component you install, and your hands

- need to go thru over 9000 thumbscrews and pretty much remove every major structural parts of the case just touch the MB header for SATA, resulting in ridiculous amount of flexing

- PSU is to be mounted right above CPU, offers hardly any clearance even for stock HSF

Although in the A30 gallery you can see theyve added a big fan on top, the PSU will block most of the airflow anyway. well done Tt.


cliffs:
- shi+ temps
- loud as shi+
- shi+ installation experience
- shi++y looks (at least my lanbox looked classier...this just looks like someone tried to build a fridge out of half a badminton raquet)
- it actually costs money, ***

PM if you're not fully convinced this case can ruin your life..


EDIT: I figured this rant doesnt contribute much, so I'll give another warning (this time about the NZXT Vulcan)

I've worked with one and the case did its job and had some cool looks but I ran into some troubles:

- fan controller made a clicking noise that was similar to sticking a card into bike wheel spokes
- random extra bit of metal around the rivet where PSU was, keeping it from being mounted, so I had to bust out the dremel
- not alot of space for cable mgmt, even with a semi-modular PSU that I used
-handle was confusing as hell to install

But for the price, its good I guess.

As a FT03 owner, that doesn't work out that well in practice, due to the silly side panel mounting system. Still okay, however.

Why do you want a 13 inch Long GPU in a small case?
