    Will the A8N-SLI fit into the Casetek 1018BLM case?

    Hi,
    Just a simple question, I'm upgrading my system over the next few weeks, and would like to know if the A8N-SLI will fit into the Casetek 1018BLM case? Also what is the case like? Is the air flow very good though it? any other problems anyone knows of? Thanks a lot

    Its an ATX case and an ATX mobo, so as far as i can tell, yes. I cant find any reviews of the case on the web (sorry!)

    Looks okay, as long as there aren't any overhanging drive bays etc to foul the ram slots you should be fine.

    More of a concern is ventilation, make sure you invest in a few case fans to keep the internal temps down..

    It's a very old design (takes AT boards). And yeah it won't win any beauty prizes.

    My personal reccomendation would be for a nice beantech igloo case, superb build quality, thumbscrews everywhere, easy access drive bays (no screws needed), and rubber mounted anti-vibration bays for your HDD's, and it doesn't cost any more than the casetech

    Nice case ... I have that one too

    It all fits fine and houses all the drives I have installed on the Serial ATA and IDE without any problems.

    The airflows fine - just remember to keep the fan filters on and you'll be fine

    STOO - The casetek's also have the drive rail kits supplied for easy installing and removal as well as thumb screws for the panels and I'm sure if you really wanted too you could mod the rails so that they have noise dampening on them as well ( hmmm... silicon sealant anyone ? )

    The drives also face to the right of the case ( if you are face on looking at the case ) and they are easy to access and to keep the cables tidy is a doddle

    In the end - its not the best looking case in world but end of the day I bought it for functionality, price and also the fact that its SO DAMN HEAVY that even the fittest burglar in the world would have difficulty picking it up from ground level
