Re: Re: Finished Build - Who's The Prettiest Bell of The Ball...
As attractive as this case may be, it is _very_ hard to work in. Its
primary design consideration is sound isolation, not accessibility.
Itís engineered around a simple inductive cooling scheme where one
120mm fan forces cool air in from the bottom and is expelled through
the power supply, which also has a 120mm fan on its underside. It
works well. For a case that has so few fans, my dual core CPU idols at
about 30c and under 100% sustained load, maintains a remarkably
consistent 58c with the stock cooler. Thatís well below the published
maximum of 68c, but Iíd like to shave about 10c off of that with a
I had to remove the fan entirely to access the bottom drive cage. Itís
also adjacent to many of the pin connectors on the MB, so every time
you make a change, it's a major operation.
The great thing about this case is that it's every bid as quite as the
manufacture claims. That Fujitsu drive is the fastest drive on the
planet, but also among the noisiest. I donít hear it at all, but can
sometimes feel the vibration of it seeking. I can only hear the PSU
fan when itís at full throttle.
Overall Iím quite pleased with it.
