Yeah I think I will put my 580 dowen there since its intake fan will probably be back enough. Also it exhausts out the back, unlike these stupid Palits.....

Just got my R3 delivered - this thing makes my 800D look like some sort of frankenstien rig....

It's just all about finding the black box that fits your personality. Are you a black box with slightly rounded corners? Are you a black box with some mesh on the front? Are you a black box stuffed with foam padding, shoved under a desk so you forget it's there?

All of these are profoundly deep existential questions that will alter the course of your life. One day you may reach for your power switch, and due to it's awkward location fall over and break your neck. Then you'll wish you had chosen a more appropriately configured black box.

Really what it comes down to is;

Too bleak, or not too bleak? that is the question.

One word: gaudy. Not everyone wants their rig to look riced out with flashing lights and Type R stickers plastered all over it.

No I think it looks good, Shredicus was knocking on classy cases. I was explaining to him why some people like cases such as the R3 and 800d.

Yeah, because unless your case is flat black and made up entirely of right angles it's not classy. rolleyes.gif

Naturally you're the type to actually use the phrase "ricer case" which always cracks me up. There's obviously no such thing as tasteful lighting, or a case with curves that has class. As far as you're concerned the only two types of vehicles on the road are your mother's "classy" 1996 tan ford taurus or honda civics with spoilers, stickers and fart cannons, right?

Classy case ftw. Anyone who likes your 1337 case is obviously 12 years old.
