Nice case, but could use additional GPU

Built a smaller rig in this recently, and generally very happy with the case. However - presumably to keep noise levels down - there is no ventilation in the side panel where the GPU faces outwards.

I tried maxing out the fans in the case (1 x 20cm front intake, 1 x 14cm rear exhaust and 2 x 12cm top exhaust) but no combination of fan speeds would stop my eVGA GTX 780 (FTW ACS cooled) from hitting 80c and throttling down.

Ended up cutting a massive blowhole in the side - very happy with how it came out, and as I type this the GPU doesn't go above 62c while benching, despite running at 1202MHz boost.

So - nice case, CPU air-cooling is alright as there's good uninterruped airflow through the case (if the extra HDD bays are removed).

Perhaps - and I don't have one to test - GPU cooling would be better with suck / exhaust design heatsink and blower, but I could still see the lack of side panel clearance causing issues.

So - if planning on running a decent GPU don't be surprised if it runs hot, noisily, and throttles - unless you fancy modding the side panel.

Pretty amazing but some minor problems

This is the first Bitfenix case I've ever owned and i have to say the quality of the case was outstanding and the aesthetics were amazing. As well as that the front door really reduced noise from the front fan (in my case a 140mm Bitfenix spectre pro) without really restricting airflow.

However due to the lack of ventilation for the GPU the temps can be a little on the high side, i have a MSI R9 270x HAWK and in heavy gaming sessions temps reached about 80 degrees C though i guess with a blower style cooler the temps would be considerably lower. As for the CPU the temps were comfortable using a Thermalright axp-100 on a i5-3470 the temps plateaued at 70.

Overall great case and would recommend to most people looking for a reasonably compact quiet case.

Great case!

Bought one of these as I fancied a Mini ITX build and had read some good reviews. Very happy with my purchase and it was cheaper this week so all good! The only niggle was a very tight squeeze fitting my PSU in as its 160mm however it all works fine so not a drama! Thanks Overclockers!
