Yep its all good...


love the case and all as I own it my self, but you would really help yourself alot by getting a full tower case.

MUCH easier to hide wires and such...better airflow

lol sorry it dosent.....


You would be fine with it but if your an air flow freak like me you want more space and wire management:freak:



Check out the Gigabyte Auroa....its very nice and full tower, and some of the TF members here have it...very nice


But if it is your hearts desire go for it! I own it and I like it alot. Just wish is was bigger

Its acctualy pretty big, like I said above, Im just an air flow freak

haha ok cool thanks! I think I am going to stick with it. I'm not really going to be doing any overclocking (yet....) so it should be fine!

Yeah you should....

Make sure you pick up 2 80 mm fans of your choice as it has a blowhole on the top and a grill on the bottom where you can instert fans. It helps alot

Blolofyfinger - Save yourself some cash, adn drop the 10/100 card off your list. Your motherboard has your LAN connections on it already.
