Default Best fan/quiet case

This is the case I own and might I say, it is awesome as hell. I recommend this to people who want a cool computer without the hazards of water cooling. All 7 fans run at 21 dba with great cooling power. I also have a silent boost heatsink that runs at 21 dba. This computer is quieter than my dad's computer with one case fan.

Just a question tho, is it a good case if you want to mod it, and put some LED fans and design a few parts for?

Yes, it is very easy to mod. No screws required at all!

yea i have the same exact model and color. I love it. There is a lot of space and it is a screw less case. 1 thing what u would need to get to make it a neat case. If your PSU does not have long wires then they will be hanging in the middle since its such a big case. You can buy 1 of there PSU's or buy little extensions so you can make it all neat. But other then that, its a great case and i would reccomend it to anyone. Its good for water cooling too since there is a lot of space in it.

o yea and anohter thing is, it weighs 42 LBS just alone... Thats what atleast the UPS thing said when i ordered it. They have a new one out now, its lighter but it dont have all the cool features in the front like the fan controller and the temp guage. You gotta buy that seperate. All it has now is 2 big knobs on the top and bottom just there and it can only control 2 fans.
