    There was a review on TPU of the non evo (which has the PSU at the top instead of bottom). This is where I bought it: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/191831

    Cheapest case ever bought, but the cable tidying, the black everything, and the airflow is unbelievable!

    OMG that's funny! It does look like a lock.:laugh: It's a Tt Spirit2 NB cooler, it's at weird angle because that is the only way I could get it to not hit something on the board.

    I also have a NZXT BETA EVO Classic Series case. It's located in such a dark space I can't get a good picture of it. I got mine here.

    Inside is a MSI K9A2 Platinum, AMD Phenom 9950, XIGMATEK Dark Knight-S1283V, (2) GTX 260 video cards and a NZXT 800W PSU. Besides the fan that came with the case I added two to the top and one on the side.

    Maybe that dark space is a good space for it.:laugh:

    Just picked up a biostar board and i5 661 combo at fry's yesterday. Going to replace the 6300 wolfie system I have with this. Have it running at 4.3 with just a small bump in vcore, going to leave it there for a while. Used an old big typhoon I had and customized the mounting for the 1156. The temps are incredibly low, plus I can't even hear this thing running. :rockout:

    This is the combo.

    [​IMG]

    Here is a shot of it running wcg.

    [​IMG]

    And a pic of the set-up. I have the hard drive mounted high so I can add my GTX260 later. It barely fits in this case. :laugh: I'm not sure if I will though, adds noise and heat, and I want this to be as quiet as possible.

    Such a good case for the money! The styling reminds me of a server case, very understated with great performance.

    Have you got any pics of your rig somewhere? Would love to see how it looks with a full compliment of hardware.

    you hopefully have a good anticorrosive there.:D that should be massive amounts of aluminium (the cape cora) even tho they state its not corrodable.
    i somehow cant believe that.:eek:
    how long did you use it,in combination with copper?

    I use Photobucket.com , it's a free (no spam either) image hosting website and they have tons of space. You simply upload a picture and it creates an html or url code that you can paste into your comments.:)

    Thanks Pos! Well that cooler you see in the pic did'nt do wonders for me(CM Vortex). I even tried lapping it but still no go! Load testing the processor with Prime95 had my core temps to 71 degrees celsius!:eek: I think this was due to bad processor to heatsink contact because the vortex hsf did'nt have a back plate assembly for the mobo and thus made poor contact with the processor. What I did was reinstalled the stock foxconn hsf that came with the rig which had a backplate and voila! Temps were just 65 degrees celsius in Prime95!:D

    Here is a pic of the Foxconn hsf I'm currently using right now:
    [​IMG]

    As for the vortex hsf, what I did was took that 92mm fan and had it replace the 80mm case fan you see in my previous post! That 92mm fan does the job of sucking away heat from the case:toast:
