This review is from: Antec Eleven Hundred Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Amazing build quality, well designed, clean understated look, perfect size for any build. This case has a nice clean black finish inside and out, no gaps in paint. The intakes are many, and well placed. The filters are a nice idea... The space inside the case is immense, it wont pass for a server case however because there is not enough HDD 3.5" mounts. The SSD 2.5" mount operates without HDD clips, you can use screws but I just used the pressure from the fit.
Cons: My only complaint comes from my obsession with cleanliness. There are too many unfiltered grills to run a negative pressure case while still using the filters.
Other Thoughts: I have over 600cfm of fans mounted in this case and because of my need for cleanliness inside the case, I had to run negative pressure to use the filters. I also had to tape over many grills in order to properly make use of the filters in the case, if I hadn't the air would have been drawn in from the many mesh surfaces.
Perfect for a positive pressure case however. And I have highly recommended this case to many people already.
This review is from: APEVIA CF312SL-UBL 120mm UV Blue LED Cooling Fan 3 in 1 pack
Pros: It has excellent static pressure, CFM of flow, and potential.
Cons: I is loud. Not sort of loud... really loud. It's not a turbine volume but having 3 operating at 100% load all the time, I can say they are loud. They operate at 58-60 Decibels, which is about conversation volume.
Other Thoughts: I have 2 of these on my Hyper 212 Evo, one on the exhaust of the case. I cannot make my CPU run hotter than 35c while giving the lil phenom II x4 1.45v. If you have the patience to configure yourself a fan controller which is temperature sensitive (remember that its not PWM controlled but pure voltage) you'll be sitting pretty. However if this is for a gaming or office computer I recommend at-least some NOISE CANCELLING headphones, not well insulated headphones (you will need active noise cancelling because even 33nrr ear buds don't block this much fan noise)
Please keep these in stock Newegg as I may need a few for some upcoming builds, once I make a controller.
