lol. its always nice to have great sound!....... as far as the temps go, how high of an oc do you have on your cpu to have such high temps?? mine is an AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE oc'd at 3.8 and coretemp has it at 32c idle and 44c full load.
I have a small overclock of 3.0 and my temps are higher due to the summers heat.:( Right now it's cool outside and my temps have dropped a little:

temps at this moment:

I'm undecided on which to get, Lexa S, Hades or Tempest Evo.
Well we need some details from you, like what are you looking for in a case and whats your price range? All 3 of these cases provide great features such as cable management options, airflow and quality cosmetics (black interior, led fans, durable plastics)

The Lexa S is a cool case if that's the look your going for. I like that it comes with a built in fan controller and the option for two 140mm top fans, but the front intake seems restricted and case might be a bit cramped.

The Hades is nice because it has 200mm intake fans which provide great airflow at reasonable acoustics. This case also has a built in fan controller and it even provides temp sensors!, the Hades is also a small mid-tower case (unlike the Tempest). My only con is the door on the front bezel and there is no window.

Personally I would go with the Tempest Evo because it is a the largest case and does come with more fans. I prefer cases without doors and I think this case provides more options for airflow and water cooling then the other two. The only cons could be budget? and/or acoustics, being that it has so many fans and fully exposed vents means it's not the most quite case.

Overall, all these are great cases and the features are about the same. It really comes down to price and looks.

I'll probably be going for the Hades. I'm looking for a case with decent cooling and one that isn't too expensive, I think it'd be wiser for me to go with the Hades and spend the saved money, from not getting an evo, on an aftermarket cooler for my 8800GTX. I also like the look of the Hades.

EDIT: Well I read the Hades supports CPU cooler/heatsinks of height 165mm due to the 200mm fan, I have a max orb than is 165mm in height :eek:
EDIT EDIT: That's without the fan, so I guess my choice isn't going to be the Hades.
EDIT EDIT EDIT: False info on my fan height, it is 92.5mm, so Hades would fit it with fan.

Wait I'm confused, the Max Orb is a low profile cooler:confused:

Nzxt; said:
CPU Heatsink clearance: 131.5mm w/ 200mm fan, 165mm w/o side fan installed.
EDIT: Oooooh I just read your edits lol!:eek: Well I'm glad it will work out then! I think you should buy the Nzxt Hades, stuff it full of hardware, take some pics of your sick build and post them here.:D

I have no idea how I missed this thread. I am the proud owner of a NZXT Phantom (current build)(bought from Peety) and a M59. I love 'em. Feel free to add me. I'm slowly working on the Phantom build. Its my first intel build so alot is going into this one. I'm slowly acquiring my parts list. So when I have it all. I'll spend a day or 2 assembling. Of course There will be a p-log with pics.

I love that smokey finish on the side panel on the Tempest EVO.
Got my Tempest up and repaired the top panel mesh covering the top 2 fans even the replacements are slightly bent, i dunno if they could get stronger or some other design it would be better.

Not using that though as im still using the Lancool K62 although i miss the amount of fans on the Tempest lol!

that PSU really did find an awesome owner :)
nice paint job, the door is slightly streaky, otherwise i think it looks nice!
Haha it sure did :toast:

It's not actually streaky, it was my fault I handled the panel's too soon after painting so now I need to give them another coat of paint to fix it up again, also thinking of spraying the PSU the same colour as the outer case but I'm not sure on that yet (yes I know it would void the warranty :D)).

yeah it will! :p
you should do the front panel instead as the PSU is hidden inside the case

Edit: i think i see hand prints, if i look closer ( could be wrong tho)

Your correct on the hand prints... as I said I handled the panels too soon after painting, The weather has been really crappy today so not been able to give it that extra coat I was on about.

I don't want all the front fascia blue, I'm considering taking the grill from the front and giving that a blue coat, would finish it off much better, as also in keeping with the blue and black theme inside.

EDIT: fixed the finger marks and did the front the grill aswel, I know the front fascia needs a wipe down but nevermind about that :D









I'm really not the cleanest of people but nevermind, the overall finish besides the cleaning up what needs to be done is pretty good isn't it, considering it's really the first time I've ever used spray paint on anything.

Nice paint mod on the Beta Evo:toast: thanks for sharing!
I admit it could of been a little better, but not bad for my first ever attempt at anything like that, and I have a problem with waiting... so waiting for paint to dry is a real issue :laugh:

I decided to throw my second 285 back in and get rid of that Fatal1ty card because summer is over and I dont the extra heat anymore. No big deal but just installed my new Corsair ram cooler. Ever since I install the second set of 4 gigs and I feel like my ram is really cramped and toasty, plus it's nice to feel like I actually made a recent upgrade, but at very low costs. It's also a nice way to hide those ugly gold OCZ's:toast:
