Sneaking a 7950 into a Centurion 5 II

Recommended Posts

Actually IVI, the HAF X doesn't look too bad but I'm kinda sick of black cases.

 

 

Exams are all done so its time to get started on the upgrades, starting with a case.

 

I've narrowed it down to the following:

 

NZXT Phantom White $169

 

Corsair 600T White $185

 

 

The Phantom is a full tower so it leaves the door open for an XL sized board should I want one but the 600t is also a beast in its own right. :dunno:

YES!! Especially since a HAF was shot down, unless I should make him a case and send it to him....anyone got another old Gateway? :P

Lol no angle grinder in the world would have saved that case.

 

 

I got the phantom yesterday :biggrin:

 

 

My mATX board looks lonely in there. All i need now is a 7950 :P

 

 

Couple of things which kind of annoyed me

 

  • Cable management holes are pretty small, rubber grommets came off a few times when I was forcing my shit through
  • Side panel mechanism sucks major balls (kinda)
  • Not enough fans to wire up all the fan controllers out of the box
  • HDD trays aren't that great either

 

 

 

But overall I'm quite happy with it.

Try saying that HAFter using one :teehee:

 

I have no love for the HAF series. For anyone else yeah its great BUT the thing about it is the air cooling performance could be alot better,

Bit of paint already scraped off the Phantom here and there, there was a mention of paint scraping iirc on the review of the pink one on here.

 

No biggie though.
