    You really like those old-style Chieftec/Antec cases don't you? The deal breaker for me is that they only have space for 80mm fans :(

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Actually I was looking at that and you can fit a 120 in the front and rear with some modifications. But I figured 2 x 80's would be better then 1x 120. I have to do some airflow calculations between them and see for sure. I can take a pic of a 120 mocked up in the rear if you like. And yes I really do like the cases. They have a ton of room. I also have a water cooled Koolance version too. My Vampire case does drawf them though.

    Rough calculation of 2x80mm vs 1x120mm (same design/rpm)- the 2x80mm fans are about 89% of the output of the 120mm. Those cases look to have room for 3x120 or 140mm fans to be cut into the floor but I'm not sure on how you would exhaust that increase in intake air?

    If temps aren't giving you trouble then it isn't really anything to worry about... dust accumulation shouldn't be too bad with the current setup :)

    Even in the rear? I wouldn't have suspected that the case is wide enough for that. Is that a 92mm cooler? For me, the inability to run a 120mm tower cooler or 120mm AIO cooler is a dealbreaker.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    All 120mm towers. 1 Has a Xig Night hawk, 1 has a Hyper 212+ and the other has some other type of xig. And a 120 will fit in the back with some minor modding. There are 2 rivet holes in the case where the i/o shield mounts and the hole are in perfect alignment for a 120 fan. :toast:

    I am still considering it. :toast:

    He doesn't get here until the 20th ;)

    Anyways, I gave him my i7-920 system in March, as he was still gaming on a Pentium Dual Core laptop with integrated graphics--he's pretty zen with it since I gave him a much nicer computer ;)

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I got around to doing a change to one of my rigs today. I finally was able to retire the Smilodon case thanks to T-ski. Thanks again buddy.

    Went from this:

    I think anyone who got rid of a Raidmax Smilodon would be happy. :p

    I got one in 2009 and quickly realized that I couldn't even fit a 9800 GT in there with the hard drive rack. The included fans also spin at like 2 RPM and are useless. I can't believe these cases are still on the market, and probably in the same box that says they are "Pentium 4 ready." :banghead:
