Default anyone here have this case n have good air flow?

this case looks n seems really nice to own, but the only trouble ive been reading in all these reviews from is that the temp sensor is too short.

i mainly want this case for good air flow *120mm fans side, front, n rear*. 120mm usually means more suck, quiet or no noise, n less rpm to prevent noise *no thx to my 90mm fan on side of my case that spins over 6000 rpm, it's really noisy!*. My close friend got the APEVIA X-Navigator for Christmas, n it is so quiet, with good air flow. Here is his case:

anyone have this case, experienced this case, or have a friend with this case? How can i fix the temp sensor to not make it short?

Dude, Im a noob but for $20 less you can get the Antec P180, which seems to be the best case on the market....

Guys, I really like the look of this case. But its heavy. I dont see any audio jacks as well... What do you think??

You are a noob. I think he wants a full tower case not a mid tower. The same as me... I can't wait untill I get a full tower case but they are somewhat expesive. Also The first one looks to be better. They will both do you good but they are too flashy for me
The start of my signature...

The x-pleasure looks like a good case. i have the x-navigator. cant complain about it really, though my version has 80mm rear fan... great cases but i dont know if they are worth 140 bucks+

the P180... the bottom 120mm fan doesnt really make sense... you want the fan infront of the 3.5 disk tray not behind it
i was personally looking and switching the the xclio, it looks like a solid case.
