RAIDMAX Helios ATX-819WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This case has a lot of fans, which were quieter than i expected them to be. There is plenty of space inside the case and the 2nd HD cage is removable which is nice when trying to do your cable management. Optional side fan is always a plus. atm my gtx 465 (got it on sale for 150 a while ago) runs at 30c idle and 60 max load. lots of overclocking room.

Cons: I had trouble fitting the front-side back on with a coolermaster v8, i got it back on but its pushing on the side (just a heads up if your getting a v8 or something of that size). like the others my one of my front fan connecter wasn't soldered on. Not a lot of room for cable management

Other Thoughts: The main reason i got this case was the fact i could fit any sized graphics card... if i could find a gtx 590 in stock. But i was honestly surprised that this case cooled everything so well! Great airflow, Recommend to anyone.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Runs all my games maxed settings flawlessly

-overclocks great! right now I'm running 780core/1560shader/1773memory without messing with the voltage stuff

-only reached 65c after an hour of FurMark. my 9600gt ran at 72 so great cooling on this card!

-Power consumption isn't too bad, if your comparing it to the 480 or 470

-heat pipes look cool

Cons: -fan's are basically locked at 40%. but you don't really even need to up the fan speed anyways..

-i was a LITTLE bummed out on performance but i think I'm very cpu and ram limited at this point.

Other Thoughts: Over all, this is a great buy. I would recommend it to anyone thinking about getting a 400 series card, or any dx11 card for that matter, without spending over $300.
