Looking for a case that is in the 65 dollar range. I was set on the NZXT trinity, but I'm hearing thats not very good for cooling, only an 80mm side fan, 80mm rear...<img src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thinking" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
If you can use <a href="http://www.canadacomputers.com" target="_blank">www.canadacomputers.com</a> its great, one in my city, less on shipping, but others are ok aswell. Here's where I am now. I want something sleek, but not just plain. I could buy a plain case for 20 bucks lol. Something that looks nice..sleek is the perfect word lol. Must have window.<br />
<br />

No window, but <a href="http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=009739&cid=CS.664" target="_blank">this</a> has vents on the side, and a mesh front, so i'm guessing it will be good for cooling.<br />
<br />
Edit: <a href="http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=14210&vpn=TI-BREEZE&manufacture=Tisonic" target="_blank">This</a> one <i>almost</i> has a window.....

The trinity does come with an 80mm fan on the back, but its an 80/92/120 mm fan outlet...so yeah its good <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
I was going to get it remember, but I couldn't find it at a decent price...speaking of which, I just got my rig put back together.

Might be a little cheap but looks sleek <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">, and that sight has alot of pictures down, or at least when I try to view them, so I can't see which ones look nice. Hope that one is good tho.<br>
BTW: In store purchase only, but you said you have one in your city.

The one on newegg has a 120mm front, but it's the silver trinity maybe that's why.<br><br>
Man it must have 120mm intake in the front.<br><br>
Edit : Ohh you mean side, 80mm is enough.

Do front intakes actually work? Or do they just blow the sitting air around?

Front Intake worked for me. It actually lowered my temps by 5 C w/ 120mm fan @ 93 CFM.

Personally I agree! White, or black for me...35 bucks is great, will be contacting them about shipping questions if its not on their site.<br><br>
[edit] No canadian shipping. DAMNIT. So close <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"><br><br>
I really like that white one though, maybe...I coudl talk to a buddy of mine in cali and see if he can pick one up, i'll paypal him for it, and then have it shipped? Shipping would cost an arm and a leg though

Why dont you want negative pressure? Positive pressure helps keep dust out, but negative can keep you from having hot spots in your case. I all ways try to run a little negative.

Front intakes suck air into the case. It works even better if you have exhausts in the rear. See the flow of air? Going through the whole case, it'll cool things down.
