The Title Says it all. I m trying to make a gaming build with a Black/Blue Colour Scheme and I have come to doubt if the Chaser mk 1 would offer enough ventilation to cool 2 290s as they get hot pretty fast so... Will The case offer sufficient cooling to those gpus? If Not, would you recommend me a Black/Blue Case that would Offer me enough airflow? Thanks in Advance

System so far:

CPU: AMD FX-8350
GPU: Crossfire Sapphire Vapor-X R9 290s
MOBO: M5A99FX PRO R2.0
Corsair H100i closed loop

i'd reccomend the HAF X. its very similar to to the Mk1... same price, maybe cheaper after rebate.
but it includes a shround/120mm fan mount taht connects to the back of the hard drive cage and points a 120mm fan directly between the GPUS... to help cool the top card that will always be short on clean air.
and of course the 200mm side fan blowing air at the GPUs.
it also includes an adjustable metal bracket that mounts to the back and supports your GPUs.. taking the load off the PCI-E slot.

Those are all reasons I bought it for my crossfire setup.

of course it supports 240mm rad as well
it has all the other bells and whistles as well, but those are the two that

Thank you very much for the help! I Like it! The case looks amazing, one question though, it seems the Blue Edition was discontinued so, Apart from Blue LED Fans are there any more differences between the Normal Red Version and the Blue Edition?
