actually, that HT80 case looks pretty much exactly like the WESENA case...

meaning, my friend Balinus thinks the Big Shuriken 58mm wont fit since

there's a drive tray in the way...

now, seeing beer40's htpc, we now we can cur through drive trays Tongue

but again, no one has tried i beleive since we havent heard of it.

doesnt mean it doesnt work.

and, doesnt mean it works too.

i say be a ginea pig Smile

Yes it did.... And you know what, I plan on getting another case just like this one to TX my i3 build into. I hope that Blu is around if I have problems with my i3, I plan on ditching the HD6570 and going slim in that build too!! All I need now is a 40oz just in case I get too frustrated, but Beer will drop by and supply me with that!! I'll keep you guys posted!!Wink

Hey BEER.....WERE's MY 40oz...lol

I hope that you have the tools below to modify the case to fit the aftermarket CPU cooler.....

You could have got this "Scythe SCKZT-1000 80mm Kozuti CPU Cooler", and it'll fit without cutting....

I would not get that..... at all 80MM... the smaller it is .... the louder because it will go up in RPM.... the bigger it tends to work harder therefor less RPM

As we all know now.... if you don't want to cut your case this one fits perfect......


Scythe SCSK-1100 100mm Shuriken Rev. B

My hommie WAVER123 proved us it fits.....

and be silent happy!

Yes, Scythe SCSK-1100 should be a good one too. As far as noise, 1000, 1100 and 2100 has almost identical dBA. It should be the same noise level......I like the cleaner looks of the 1000 than the models with the fan on the top!
