    How are your fans configured? Looks like 2 intake on the front and 3 exhaust on top and back. You ideally want more intake than exhaust so that your case is naturally exhausting air out rather than sucking it in due to pressure differences. Also allows you to control where air comes in, preferably thru dust filters. Does the 912 have a side fan slot? If so toss one of the top exhaust on there as intake.

    Damn, that's ****ing dusty. And that's the result after just 2 weeks??
    Something is clearly wrong here. You need some better air conditioning in your house.
    It takes my PC at least 6 month to look like that.... if i don't take care of it, that is.

    They are slowly killing themselves by breathing high dosis of dust.
    Dust is underestimated. :(

    Yeah that's several months of dust buildup. You're not cleaning as well as you think.

    New case got here this morning.

    Cable management couldn't have been any easier and is a huge improvement over what was going on in my Antec 300.

    I hadn't planned on using a riser card for the GPU, but I think I'm going to. The card is so heavy it doesn't sit level and I'm worried it's going to do damage to the mobo over time.

    [​IMG]

    Picture doesn't do it justice and it's hard to get a good pic without the glare off the round part of the window.

    [​IMG]

    I see why they use the Riing fans in the media pictures for this case, regular lighted fans hardly let any light through the front. I had these from my old case and wanted to see how they'd do, but I'd planned on replacing them with a 3 pack of the RGB Riing fans anyway. Case needs more lighting inside as well. They'll both have to wait until after Christmas though.

    [​IMG]

    Didn't think to snag a screenshot of the old case, but here's the new case idle temps. Core temp is significantly lower and I'm down a 120mm and 140mm fan.

    How did you find the structural integrity of the case with the window off?

    It's every bit as sturdy without both panels actually. As cheap as the case is monetarily, it's anything but. The whole thing is sturdy and well built, almost entirely metal. Front panel is metal, all the clips are metal, ect. The only plastic on the whole case is the toolless hd trays and the window and even the trays aren't flimsy or anything.

    I'm actually shocked so few people are using it now that I've seen it in person. There were only 6 reviews on Newegg and only 8 on Amazon and the only complaints anyone had was with the screws, and after putting everything together I'd guess they used the wrong screws in the wrong places which isn't hard to do with how similar they all look. I couldn't even find any builds with it anywhere. I really liked my Antec 300, but that thing seems like a total piece of crap after putting everything in this case.

    Good enough I wouldn't consider replacing it with another non-liquid cooler. Quiet too. Haven't tried overclocking with it though. My only complaint about it is they edit the light on it in the press shots. You can't even tell it's there unless you look for it, it barely lights up. It came with my CPU though and I knew when I bought it I was planning on doing a liquid cooling setup at some point regardless. For a stock cooler though it's pretty awesome.

    Cable mess under the desk detracts from overall awesomeness. I need to fix that.

    [​IMG]

    There's a cable mess inside the tower too. I haven't bothered to do fancy cable management since there is no case window.

    Machine has a 1080 and a GQ650 (EVGA) PSU now. This photo was with a 980 and a CX500.

    Here's one from my file server, five years ago. Cable management fail :p

    Was some garbage like Athlon 64 X2 4400+, 2 GB RAM, 7x 750 GB HDD on like Ubuntu 9 that ran on a 4GB CF card. Fun times, junk seems to have changed a lot since then.

    Lol a Compaq keyboard.

    For a second, I thought you had the LS50 monitors... then I realized they're just X300A.

    Yes, they are the lowly X300A. I was foolish enough to put these on a desk. I would never dessecrate LS50s like that. And no, it's not a Compaq keyboard it's a Corsair K70 RGB with brown switches.

    That comment was to @beers pic. Hence why it was above your quote.
