I'm trying to find a decent case to stick all of my WC stuff in, and I really like this one. I'm a little concerned about the air intake in the front though. Is is big enough to attach the 120mm fan from my rad to? I want the best airflow through the rad as possible. I realize that I'll have to remove a drive cage, but I just want to make sure this is a good choice before I blow the money on it. My next choice is the Lite-On that Nikhsub1 has.

Ok~ sigma X has one and the rad going in the BACK of the case above the PS so the hot air is pulled from the case~ it will fit a 120mm fan in the front~ but its nicer to use the rear mount or top mount option with a IN on the side pannel across the video/cpu so that you have a somewhat equal pressure(neg=better)

Wouldn't you want cool air outside of the case blowing through the rad?

Its nice to hear that this case will work well though.

I have the PC65 with a radaitor exactly where you are thinking. Dremeled out the rivets and placed a decent sized heat exchanger there. I have the 120 and the dual fans up fron on high. My temps are not the best, but they work. I have a 2.53 running @ 3.040 @ 1.7 with an idle of 37 and a load of 44 or so.
