    Re: Rebuild time :D

    I'm not happy with the cable ontop of the PSU, ODD power + data, the pwr sw rst sw + LEDs, or the GFX 2 six pins.

    I do like the fan cables though

    Also the 7th SATA in the middle of the board is annoying but i have too many devices

    It'll do until next time i suppose

    Still not bad considering there are no cable ties used

    I'd be embarassed to show the inside of my CM690, its a right mess compared to that!

    Re: Rebuild time :D

    I'd agree the Lian Li looks nicer. By the way does that mean it is for sale (the Lian Li)?

    Also if you could please clear up how the Lian Li gets air from the front for the front fan as looking at the pics, it appears to have a completely flat metal front?

    It doesn't, it get's it's air from the back.
    The PC-A05 is almost totally inverted in design.


    The rear fan is actually an intake fan, the air is push out of the front by a 120mm behind/infront of the hard drive cage and the front mounted psu
    The air escapes through vents in the sides of the front bezel.

    As Pob correctly says. the rear is the intake the front is the exhaust, with mine having an additional exhaust at the top.

    As for the flat front, the metal bezel on the front is hollow and around 1" thick with ventilation holes down the sides, this is also where you get access to the bottom front mounted PSU, with regards to the power there is an extension lead which you plug into the PSU at the front (if you were wondering )

    Is there any reason why air has to flow that way from back to front? I'd like to get this case so waiting till Scan gets some stock. Reversing the fans means you could just as easily have cool aire come in from front and hot air going out the back like conventional cases no? I'm just thinking that hot air blowing onto by HDDs is not such a great idea.

    This is for an AMD build. My Core i5 build is in a Lian-Li PC-A06 which has the same front bottom PSU positioning.

    Good job there mate, made me think I'll be getting one of those cases when funds permit though.

    Re: Rebuild time :D

    Why is your GPU in the bottom slot?

    Nice though, much improved on the tidiness side of things.

    There was a reason for it, i can't remember what the reason was though

    I think it had something to do with optimal airflow (due to the an at the front and the fan at the bottom)

    Nah, 2 x16 slots, unless you use both in which case 2 x8

    Re: Rebuild time :D

    Oh and I've just noticed that my Lian Li PC-A06 has exactly the same thermal design as the A05N

    I'm going to have to check that I've put the fans in the right way round duh!

    They were at a stable 40c max from all the time I was monitoring them, that is with my GFX card maxed out 24/7 though. Plus with the blow hole taking most of the heat from the gfx card away

    HDD max temps in this case are:

    HDD0 30
    HDD1 28
    HDD2 31
    HDD3 27

    GPU is steady at 77c

    and CPU is fluctuating between a high of 50c and low of 30c

    You could always hack the case though, if you're only using 1 HDD you can put it in the external 3.25" bay leaving room for 2 ODDs

    If you only have 1 ODD that gives you room for 2 HDDs

    The sweet spot is using SSDs though as there is potential for them to be velcro'd to the side of the ODD bay, saving space for 2 ODDs plus 1 HDD, or if you stacked 2 SSDs/2.5" HDDs you could have 2ODD + 2 2.5"

    Then you could drop the HDD bay out and have less impeded airflow.

    You could also use the additional room to fit a WC setup in, mount the rad in the top of the case, plus a bay res, mount the pump at the front where the HDD bay would have been and jobs a good 'en

    Re: Rebuild time :D

    Thanks TAK, that's sealed it for me. Going to try and acquire one as soon as it comes back in stock.
    Think I'll go for one in black
