Default My new Antec case..........

This was the first time i ever removed a whole pc, id only ever added bits like gpu,ram, psu etc, so this was pretty scary for me.

I think the hardest part of it all was removing and fitting the mobo as i was really scared of snapping it! i could have removed the heatsink etc but i didnt want the extra work so i was just very careful and i was fine.
Heres some pics




Much bigger than my old case on the left, and longer


I love it, and the fact it had 4 case fans as standard plus 3 speed settings on each, its quiet and has dramatically dropped my system temps, most noticeable is my gpu which used to sit at around 55/58 oc idle and now its between 48-50oc so i huge drop in temps for me which was my main goal here

I tell you what though it aint half breezy sat next to it

That was my old case, a Compaq presario to be precise.

It was a good little functional case but looked very bland and only had one case fan, i wanted better cooling and it didnt have space for any more fans.

Oh and the front panel is off in the pic(old case), thats why it looks nasty
