    Hey, I'm buying a new case soon and I'm wondering if anyone here has had experience with it and what's the heat like? I have a 8800gtx and at the moment with it underlcocked and fans in my X-Cruiser running at 100% it still goes up to around mid 80's when I'm playing games like ArmA 2 Operation Arrowhead. I plan on getting a HR-03 Plus aswell to cool it down a bit.

    Thanks

    if u trust the peeps on newegg it does well,
    # 60% (82)
    # 31% (43)
    # 6% (8)
    # 1% (2)
    # 2% (3)

    but then again with cases theirs not alot to worry about, cooling, accessibility, space, portability, looks, thats about it

    Thanks, managed to get my GPU temp down to 56 degrees idle and 62-66degrees load, but I think I'll be getting the Lexa S anyway.

    Looks like a nice case. Been considering it if I get a new build. Tell me how it is if you get one :).

    I like the LexaS, thought about it, but declined b/c of the busy front panel. Maybe check out the NZXT Club house and see if someone has more info on it.
    t77snapshot says thanks.

    Hades is nice too although I dislike the front too :laugh: Their front panel taste is a little questionable, but the insides are great. I liked working with the Beta in a build I did not too long ago :D

    I actually like the front, don't know why, just do. I was reading a review where it said the paint job was poor and the fans weren't great, don't know how old that was and if they've resolved that or not but the reviews give it very high marks.
