Great Case!

Thermaltake Commander MS-I Epic Edition Black / Red SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Thermaltake Commander MS-I Epic Edition Black / Red SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Space for a total of 5-6 fans Easy installation of components/hardware Efficient airflow Decent cable management Sturdy construction

Cons: Not constructed for water cooling Not all fan spaces are usable Front USB 3.0 is a pass through to a back USB port

Overall Review: I was able to mount an Antec Kuhler H20 620 to the rear fan opening after redrilling the holes for the fan approximately 3/8" lower. Top fan mounts aren't usable, one is blocked by the Antec radiator, other is blocked by the RAM clips (if using the standard 25mm high fans) but Scythe makes a 12mm fan that will fit above the RAM sticks. Bottom fan won't fit a 25mm high fan because of the cables coming out of the Corsair 620W modular PS (didn't check to see if a slim one will fit or not). Regardless, with all the openings and the use of 3 fans, my hottest temp point (CPU) has dropped over 20C... haven't seen it higher than 47C. Lastly, the front USB 3.0 is just a pass through but with electrical knowledge, a connector, and a little bit of time, you can have it plug into the motherboard (IF your motherboard supports it!). All in all, I am quite pleased with this purchase, ALMOST everything fit perfectly.

HOT!!

Pros: Excellent PS for the price! Like the fan speed controller which I have set to high and have never touched. For open cases, the blue light and neon green wire wraps are cool.

Cons: Not enough peripheral hook ups!

Overall Review: I run twin 6800 graphics cards in SLI and haven't had a problem with power at all. My con isn't really a con, I'm running 6 HDD, 2 DVD, fan controller, and 3 fans!

Love WD & Newegg!!

Comments: These drives are simply the BEST! Very FAST and QUIET! The ONLY thing I hear from my PC is the 2 Vantec Tornados running on the lowest speed setting!
