    Wiggo and Flaco, as always, have very good points. If the airflow is restricted, the case can possibly be modded to allow more airflow by drilling holes, cutting out grilles, etc.....you just need to look at if it's worth saving a few bucks on a case versus having to do a lot of manual and potentially damaging work to your case. There are some really good but kinda plain-Jane cases by Antec or any of the UNEEC clones that will do wonders for airflow, with no work at all. I'm just reiterating what I've heard, because I bought all my cases based on looks, cost and form-factor, and have done a lot of work getting them to cool right. I don't mind it though, because to me, this is my hobby and I get a lot of enjoyment from modding and making my own improvements. Wiggo and Flaco are just steering you in a direction with less problems. Whatever you decide, have fun with it! :cheers:

    Quite frankly many reviewers don't give full details of the system (just like that review) but even lookin' at those MBM5 figures (which can be fudged) 20C or over isn't good and they don't give the room temp while the tests are bein' done. Also it's not unusual for some sites to give bad info to stay on they good side of manufactures so that they get more hardware. I've handled a few of these cases now and I'll tell ya that their airflow ain't good compared to UNEEC cases (such as Antec 1040's, Enermax 710B's, etc) so be warned.

    Don't worry about it. Its a nice NEW case. Enjoy and have fun with it...
    Its a nice premodded case, and affordable too. It even comes with a temp guage for you if there is questions about cooling!

    just received the case yesterday and i love it. and for all you guys who thought it wasnt gonna cool good, well it does. cpu was 36C full load and my case temp is about 73F (cant get the C reading). only problem ive had is those cd drive covers that stealth your drives dont work with minwe but thats no biggie, just gives me sumthin else to mod. btw those temps are with evercool cud-725 and as3 on the cpu, 2 fans that come with it and an intake and exhaust that added. total of 4 fans+psu and cpu. so those temps are pretty good right?
