I have this case and it's amazing. 2 120mm intakes = secks.
Good features, Standard looks. Definitely good air flow in the case. Great review, thanks.
$120...that's a great price though wouldn't the Lian Li cases with Al cages make a better buy? Especially PC-A01B and PC-65B. But the air-flow of this case more than makes up.
I bought this case two weeks ago. I love it.
You can also get a PCI fan attachment (I think it's the BS-03, sold at performance-pc.com) that will blow air away from the PCI slot area.
My only problem with it was the edges inside were sharp. I cut my ring finger pretty deep on accident. Also, I know from experience that Lian-Li's fans don't last worth a darn.
The main reason I got this case was because of the hard drive positioning and two fans blowing on them. Also nice that the hard drives use the rubber holders to prevent most noise. I would have liked it if an eSata port was included, but oh well. Another thing I don't like but not a deal breaker is the front panel where the air is sucked in. It looks like that piece could be punched out.
good god i love lian-li cases so it is no surprise that i love this case. im definately getting it for my next build simple and elegant!
Yeah I bought this case from the 3dgameman dude off ebay.. I just got this case back from getting it Powder Coated a Blue Metallic outside and inside a Silver Metallic... I will start a work log here soon...
Would a 3870x2 fit in this case?
nice case but i still don't see why 120mm fans are so important my ultra moves air just fine with 80s
They're preferred for their airflow:noise ratio.
the low speed 80s in mine are silent and the case stays @ room temps
The Ultra Dragon has 5 80mm case fan mounts, this case has 3 120mm fan mounts.
A reasonable 80mm fan will push about 32CFM@30db, which is pretty quiet. So overall your pushing about 160CFM.
A reasonable 120m fan will push about 80CFM@30db. So overall, this case pushes about 240CFM.
That is why 120mm fans are so popular compared to 80mm fans.
i know that they are i just love the fact that my case is @ room temp and the loudest fan is the one on my 7800GS so there is basically no noise from it
that and people go out and buy a ton of 120mm fans to throw in there cases that they really don't need haha i should make a guide to cooling cases since people always seem to think more is better when its really not
Does anyone know where to buy the Windowed Side Panel for this case? I know it says it is available according to Lancool's site, but I can't fine it for sale anywhere.
Edit: Nevermind, I found a panel that will work. The model number is W-65B, and you can get it here.
Does Lancool Metal Boned K7 have a case speaker included?
