I like it. Might have to move the power cable for the video card though. Gotta be able to see that 2080 logo.

now that is a fine looking piece of equipment sir !

Job well done  :thumbsup:

 

Thanks, I really like the looks of this case. I want to get a big vinyl sticker for the one side panel though. Might get this in green. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vinyl-Decal-Truck-Car-Sticker-Laptop-Star-Wars-Empire-Sith-Darth-Vader/132381534517?var=431716187660

Hey Slick2500. 

 

That case looks pretty good for the sub 100$ chassis on the market. 

 

How does it perform?? Seems you have added the fans that go with the radiator but how does it perform even with the narrow intake area? 

 

Got any thermal data for us?

So far these are a few of my thoughts and views on this case.

From the factory the stock front fans are on the outside of the case, with less than 1/2" of space between the fans and the front of the case, so I moved them to the inside of the front of the case and they pull in plenty of air this way.

The leds in the fans are super bright and there is no way to turn the brightness down on them, you can only cycle through the colors or shut them off. I might break down and buy some fans that don't have a proprietary connector for the leds.

Getting the side panels back on this is sort of a pain you have to start with the front panel off, and if you don't wear gloves you get finger prints all over the glass. 

 

It came with these cool little plugs that go in the front usb and mic.headphone jacks.

Yeah.

 

Sounds like the a dead bearing. If it is the fan.

 

Thanks for the thermal data

Okay now I'm not sure what is going with it, the fans keep randomly stopping, starting and sometimes spin backwards at a few rpms a minute.  :dunno:

Looks like the fans internal controller has gone belly up?

Awhile back few years ago Enermax D.F fans would spin-up in reverse at start-up to clean the dust off,.. perhaps Cooler Master is using a new random DFR technology.  :nyea:  https://hexus.net/tech/news/cooling/92474-enermax-df-pressure-fans-use-reverse-thrust-dust-busting/
