keep the battle hardened case dude
I certainly like the form factor. Imagine if they made space for dual 240mm rads in the top. Something like the phobya extreme 480.
Excellent find james I could defenitily mod this to the top panel.
Nice find? I knew it existed. They also have a 1080 rad. I absolutelly love my 550d but I will be moving around a lot the next few years and want something a bit easier to cary yet able to be just as powerful. This particular case has caught my eye.
I meant nice find for me lol
I was just thinking of a full square rad mounted at the top when your post popped up! sorry for my confusing choice of words, I just got excited in that moment.
It would need more than side window panels to put it alongside my receiver. If they offered an HTPC version with a plain frontal panel and more drive cages you could have a powerful gaming HTPC with lots of storage capacity.
damm, I'm drooling...
Exactly. THe form factor is a great idea. I like it. Now we just need more versions for our individual uses.
yeah, a matx to itx version would be nice
Your right about more drive bays, that is one thing I noticed about the bottom level of this case. There is plenty of room for both the psu's cables and extra hdd bays, CM could have easily utilized the space for a couple removable bays. (see pic) Instead of having a single 2.5" bay in the middle, they could have done two 3.5" bays side by side and include a 2.5" adapter.
Oooooo an ITX version would be so sick.
that 2.5" bays rack unscrews too! leaves room for a lot of things
Like a FAT radiator!!!! or pump!!!! OR... Oh, oh, oooooohhh... time for a new pair of britches
I would like to put a 2x80mm rad down there just do see how it worked.
You know, I thought about that too, but I don't know if the price to performance ratio would be worth it. I haven't seen dual 80mm rads in yeeears!
Black Ice Micro Dual 80mm Radiator: click here
I think that's the only one made. Trick is getting little fans that are not too loud.
But that's the real attraction to this case. Multiple water cooling options.
2x120 up front, 120 in the back, the 2x80 in bottom rear, and maybe a 200 on the top.
Hell might aswell get Delta Fans
If there were multiple radiators in a single loop, you could run it was a passive rad maybe. Or run voltage resister to lower the rpm rate of the 80mm fans? Noctua recently released an 80mil know was the NF-R8, which can run as low as 800rpm's. They are kinda pricey but would probably get the job done quitely and more efficiently then most conventional 80mm fans.
