Hello guys, I'm buying one of these cases and I'd like advice on them. I care mostly about cooling, quality and durability. Please note that I am only buying from those cases and that I purchased 2 Thermaltake Duramax 12 fans (double ball) and 1 Thermaltake Blue-eye silent LED to and a Corsair H60 cooler.


Gigabyte Sumo alpha (has two top fan slots that are note mentioned. I had a Poseidon 310 case and it was well-made; that's why I'm nominating this one):

me too! though I never modded a case lol. The Sumo is really of good quality I'm just concerned about its cooling capabilities.

I'd say it will do fine, especially with the two top fans you mentioned
and modding often starts with a hole here for fans, a lightbar here, then your off :)
