Like I said, I'm pretty sure these open-air panels defeat the purpose of directed air flow. It's just for showing off.

thats why I stated a passive system as any fan placed other then directly focused at the item being cooled would have no channel or flow as u put it.

Yes I agree with you , I avoid cases made of alluminium , alluminium is a weak metal , therefore I am looking only for cases made of hard steel ;)

wow umm okay so are u failing chemistry? or were u just dropped on your head as a child? seriously lol hmm sure I guess if aluminum foil is the only form of aluminum you have encountered then ya its pretty weak but billet aluminum is a very strong light weight metal, lol hell they make jets from it and car rims, engine blocks and other industrial parts and well I could go on and on but I dont want to overload you right away needless to say your pretty misinformed about the properties of aluminum.

In theory yes, however larger fans are also more susceptible to breaking if the central axle isn't strong enough, or the ball bearing noise is greater because the blades weigh more, or it's more likely to be unbalanced causing vibration. It's especially important to have a quality manufacturer.


I have had bad experiences with ball bearing fans therefore I try to avoid ball bearings

I got a CM Stacker 832. It looks 10 times better than this.

If you need to change your motherboard that often, by all means buy a case with a removable tray.

I've never needed to remove a motherboard to change CPU/cooler/cards



Yes I agree , I avoid cases with removeable motherboard tray , removeable mobo tray adds unnecessary complexity , increase the cost , and the case become weaker and less solid , therefore I only buy cases with the mobo tray fitted with solid permanent rivets to the frame

I'm watching for test results for the Sniper and the Silverstone Raven RV01
$200? Due anytime. It's quiet and cool and discourages dust with positive air
pressure and dust filters.

I don't care what it looks like if it meets those requirements. But if you
prefer a more conventional appearance, Silverstone should put out other models
with the performance of the Raven but other appearances afterward.
