    Re: Casecom KM-6788 Review by Pob

    The Midguard seem to be a stright internal copy of the cm690 and around the same price
    personally for about £1 I'd get a Lancool K58 and maybe a couple of cans of spray paint, If I must have it all black.

    However for saving money, that extra £30 could go on/towards someother bit of hardware that would actually give me better performance.

    That is a problem then. Basically you just have to run it under water avoiding all cables from it? That sounds like a disaster waiting to happen...

    Re: Casecom KM-6788 Review by Pob

    The review is amazing, but I'll have to wait until your rig is up and running.
    Noise is the major factor for me so if this case gives off tons of vibration noise then I won't get it.
    Couldn't really afford another Antec P18x, and I would like a lighter case. Aluminium case is so expensive in the UK which I don't know why. (Lian-Li is cheap in Hong Kong)

    Re: Casecom KM-6788 Review by Pob

    Sommehow it doesnt seem right for me to have a bottom mounted PSU fan facing down.........I think I will modify it and face it to where most of the heat is generated...........bit of a pain as Ill only be able to use 3 screws but I think it will be worth it......besides...I dont want my PSU sucking up all the crap from the floors (dog hairs..I have Bulldogs...a few of them)

    What do you guys think


    Any replies will be appreciated

    One option but I honestly think Ill be better off modifying........filters get full of crap and over time you forget to clean them...........any advice here would be welcome.........its just the way my brain works.......I think Ill be better off facing the fan upwards.

    This case actually looks fairly decent, might grab it as a replacement for an old pc, although i want to see it up and running as i know some cheap cases are fairly noisy with everything rattling around in there

    Re: Casecom KM-6788 Review by Pob

    I'm going for fan down for the simple reason that it moved the main motherboard cables closer to the motherboard and gives that little extra cable length to play with.

    I;ve finally had 1 memory stick turn up (I do hope play has not mucked up and only sent one) so I might have a go at a test build later this week.

    On the plus side the play.com branded memory is a Micron stick

    Thats what is missing from this case to make it a real bargain. They have spent all this time making a very very good budget case and forgot air filters. I for one would spend a few more pounds for filters to be included.

    Re: Casecom KM-6788 Review by Pob

    Umm the whole front of the case is a filter, granted I think it'll be a pig to clean, but it's still a filter.
    The one rear that to me is missing a filter is the PSU vent on the bottom.

    Ok that side panel vent is not great, as intake fans there will be filterless, and without fans air is probably going to get sucked in there as it'll be an eaiser flow route than the front. (air is like water and will generally follow the path of least resistance)
    However I'm thinking of cutting it out to turn it into a window
