Excellent Mining Rig Case 01/27/2014
With the ability to use a 3x120 radiator in the front and a 2x120 radiator on the top of this case, this makes for a fantastic case for a 4x290x mining rig. This alone allowed me to bring my cards up to speed, from the air cooled 950/1250 880 kh/s each to 1025/1500 985 kh/s. Nothing like hauling around a near 4MH/s mint! Can't say about stock fan airflow, as I replaced the front fans with fans with higher static pressure for the radiator and added two more to the top.
I wish someone would create a case with a modular SATA hot bay. I have a pair of the old velociraptor drives with the SATA connection in the middle of the drive instead of the standard SATA location, and this case, like every other that has built in ports, does not work. The front and top grill being made of plastic comes off as cheap as this price level. Should have been steel at least. Lack of fan filter for the PSU opening should have been included.
All told, I'm quite pleased with the case. Having the ability to have a dual rad setup with ten 120 mm fans made for a very nice liquid cooled mining build. Cards went from inferno (80+ degrees with fans running 75% and a 20" box fan running on them in a HAF XB) to very chill (64 degrees with rad fans running at 1800 rpm and no box fan). Digging the white case lights, it's a different touch than the standard red/blue/green you see every day.
