I am looking for a air cooled gaming case that will keep all of my components nice and cool. I have the following,,,, XFX 750I SLI motherboard, currently running an XFX 8600GT graphics card (want to expand that area with two different ones?) a card reader and will have 1 cd/dvd drive and a dvd burner. If anyone can help that would be great. I am currently looking at getting the antec twelve hundred full tower. cause the video cards i want are huge!
I bought a Silverstone Raven 2 half a year ago and never looked back. All your components and the I/O shield are facing not at the back side of the case, but upwards - it has three 180mm silent fans built into the bottom, blowing straight up - directly onto the components and out of the case at the top. Just be sure to use a tower cooler for your CPU, so it works with the airflow.
The cooling power of this case is amazing. I have a Phenom 9850 OC to 3,1x4 GHz and the temperature never passes 45°C.
I really don't understand why conventional cases still exist. This 90° rotation is simply better, period.
I'm sure the info on the website will be better understandable than my fanboyish ramblings, though. Look up http://www.silverstonetek.com/raven/products/index.php?...
