Budget case with cable management? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
if put into price categories, I'd take HAF 912 > Elite 430 and also I'd take CM 690 II Adv. > Scout.

Cheers everybody.

Was still stumped lol

Lancool is a nice case but can't find any on reputable sites unfortunately.

Was between the CM 690 II, CM HAF 912 and the CM Storm Scout.

Can definitely say one thing its gonna be a Cooler Master case lol

Liking all 3 unfortunately lmao

Just did a quick search and was stuck between the HAF and the 690.

I am so lucky lol just found a HAF for £59 and a 690 for £55. Seen as they are both very much the same case decided to go for the HAF 912 Plus.

Thanks again everybody was very helpful, knew the HAF 912 case was good but never considered it lol

Rep+

Edit: Ordered along with an H50 Ebuyer had a Ex-Display Mint condition HAF with an additional free 120mm fan on sale so just had to buy it lol

Today I was staring at the door waiting for my case and H50 arriving lol

Took a few hours of cleaning components, cable management and general tinkering to get it looking great....

So thar be much beastlyness below:















Just FYI (Before its asked) IDE HDD is a ghost/backup of OS, Unplugged until needed.

Needless to say the H50 has made a huge difference.... Temp readouts to follow in next post.

My CPU is running 5 times cooler than it did previously (SERIOUSLY!) LOL

Edit:

Well tried overclockin the CPU more but the MoBo just wont let it happen >.<

Current MoBo wont let me access HT multiplier so I cant up it any further without the overclock failing, also cant adjust voltages other than in +50mv steps(Maximum of +150mv) RAM frequency cannot be down-clocked either which is BS.

If anyone has any advice on how to change the above settings on the current board I am using (M2N68-CM) lemme know.

Looks like 2.6 Ghz is all I am getting out of this >.<


Edit: Temp Readouts





HW monitor shows my Phenom as an Opteron ?
