Are you planning on aftermarket CPU cooler?

 

Yeah I plan to install a after market cooler, the packaged intel coolers drive me insane :P

 

 

fuck me those 5870's are long cards lol.

I had a bit of a play around inside the case to fit it in but I don't know how a second 5870 will fit :P

Thanks man!

 

Not loud at all and always remains cool.

 

The only noise I hear inside the case is the crappy stock intel cooler :P

Yes and its funny how I can finally add some kickass benchmarks without the need to ask :P

 

The thing that sucks is, when I got the GTX260 it came with a Vantage advanced key code and I bloody forgot to grab it on the way out the door. So I am back home with no purchased benchmarking software (Unless free) :P

 

From what I can say is that Crysis without any patches yet, still at 1.0 and not 1.1 or the 1.2 patch.

 

So sitting on just the normal install, I get no frame drop at any time and this is even with the 5870's stock drivers from the CD. So I look up to the future of driver releases and ill be patching Crysis up to get the normal speed of the game, so hopefully ill be posting something soon!!

I nearly got the all black version of the case, a technicality arose though with pccg postage costs (doubled like 3 days before I ordered it from 25 to 52) so I had to special order a FT01 (my second choice) from Umart and wait like a week and a bit to get it in, happy with my choice :)

 

The ft01 is remarkably similar to the lian li though

hmm. im not that much of a fan of the ft01, the ft02 is nice, but pretty expensive for wat it is. I really like the Lancool k62 though. i was looking at it the other day as i was looking at the pc-p50 black version, and i realized that i probably prefer the k62 lol. love the harddrive mounting system. SOOOO CONFUSING NOW X_X

Hey dude.

 

I am 100% happy with it, I keep it clean at all time. If your looking at building a nice looking system then you can do that with this case, you can also make a nice looking system with the colors of the hardware (Black/Red/Blue) Thats my mix of colors in the case.

 

I also must say sorry for not posting any benchmarks as of yet, I have been so busy lately making my film "G.H.O.S.T" and working, trying to maintain my own real life :)

 

I will be doing tests this Friday and I will 'hopefully' have benchmarks ready.
