Hey guys,
The full tower is somewhat of a dying breed with the advent of lan parties
what do you mean with the term lan partys?
i know what LAM is Local.Area.Network
but is it were you take your comp somewhere and link em all up?

But you have to have a driver's license to get in, or accompanied by your parents. You get to carry the Lan PC.

Most Lan guys overclocks the vcard to maximum. With the latest and greatest graphic cards emitting over 60 watts of heat, fast 10,000 rpm hard drive, overclocked P4 and 3200+, the case temp for a smaller chassis easily exceeding 40C. Even though the CPU may continuously running at rated speed, the memory, HD and vcard may quit before hand. It's basic thermal dynamic, the smaller and more densely packed the faster in heat absorption. The 10C reduction from a high of 69C using the purple vent hole more or less illustrates this theory. Fan Duct either active or passive theory was suggested and written by Intel back in 1998 and it it a very viable way in reducing components temps.

I'd say it is good for living room/family room entertainment rig more so than for gamers. I like the slim look.

Toucs I'm with you there on the look of the case. I know Ace doesn't like the silver finish as much as I do, I think the exterior silver finish is very classy looking. The case is heavy though - and through some link I found a mid-tower case with ducting on Newegg a while back, I can't find the link anymore but that one looked like a decent deal too.

Hell optical, write one. I'd like to see more pics of the inside front of the case and learn how well a 120mm or 2 80mm fans work for airflow in the front.

Yup, I saw that. It's the inlet I'd like to see a pic of. I just hacked hell of of my case in an effort to turn a vacuum cleaner into a Lian-Li. So far worth about 2°C at center and top of case and 4° at psu outlet.

good article & writeup as usual, i'm still frustrated by the fact that none of your reviewers knows how to use a word processor to write a review. i have yet to see a printer that can print out one of your reviews without cutting off the right side of the article .... even when printing sideways in landscape. vertical printing you lose half the article. PLEASE SOMEBODY TEACH THE REVIEWERS HOW TO USE A WORD PROCESSOR !!!!!!!!

you should probably use the print version for which the link is provided at the last page of every article
