View Full Version : Is this case good for overclocking?

Doesn't look like too bad a deal. If you are a little adventurous, you can mod it for larger fans without too much trouble, and you'll have plenty of room for expansion.

The fans that are mounted in the rear of the case, above the PS look to be 92mm or 120mm's. This is an excellent placement of fans, btw. My Q about the case is: are there sufficient mounts near the front and bottom of the case to mount fans that will draw as much air in as the rear fans are blowing out?
If so, I'd buy the case. Chances are good that you'll have to deep six the PS that comes with this case. Maybe not-- if you'll put a P3 system into the case.

I have that case,It is OK,,, You would do better to have a case with the power supply at the top of the case.
Here is why ,Below p/s in this case is a 4x4 pre cut hole.this is perfect for airflow from lower half to upper half,but because the p/s sits on top of it you lose this air flow.,,,,, Look at pic,,,, do you see all my cables run through center opening further restricting air flow ? I moved th P/S to the upper fan areas and installed 2x80mm exhaust fans where the p/s was above that great 4x4 stock opening.Now I exhaust great but to buy and have to cut it up sucks.If i buy again top mount P/S is the only way to go.

I have that case, it is ok. The smoked glass for the leds looks nice after painting it black tho. put 105(or somthing)mm fan in the front, cut cut cut, window, cut cut, extra psu, cut cut more fans. Its almost done.
i have that case and i cut out the square above the orgnial psu to add another psu. I have watercooling it in with no problem, the only thing i don't like it the little reset switch. but other than that its a good case.
*edit* i paid 50 for mine without a psu...

Well, if you don't mind doing a fair share of case modding, old AT server cases are the way to go.
They have tons of room, solid steady construction, and they are cheap as hell. If you don't mind buying used, you can get massive AT server style cases (like 5 or 6 external bays and 4 internal, not counting the 2 floppy or zip bays) for $15-30. Then you can buy your power supply. Most of us like to buy our own, just to assure the quality.
