This is a build a made with my 9 (now 10) brother a little over a year ago, but one thing still was not right, and that was the case. A few months after building the pc he started to tell me that he wanted a new case with a window so he can see the inside of the computer, but it wasn't till i decided to run heaven benchmark that i also agreed he needed a new case, just after running it for 10 minutes the gpu would easily hit 85c without msi afterburner open and when i set the fan to 95% it would stay around 82c, so not only was it really loud and hot but the clock speeds where definitely taking a hit (please note that it was nowhere this hot while playing some games so that's why i didn't notice it at first). First i thought it was just cause the 1060 3gb gaming (non-sc) has a really bad heat sink that i was not aware of at the time of buying (I would definitely stay away from it at all costs) but after putting it in my s340 i got temps way more reasonable with the fan way quieter, so it seemed to be a combo of both the bad gpu cooler and bad airflow. (Please note i did try moving the hhd so the gpu got more air and also modding the elite 110 to have a fan on the top to blow more air on the gpu but this did nothing.
Over all he's very happy with the new case and so am i, gpu temps are way do to about 73c with the fan at 65% which is very quiet do to the nano s's great sound dampening. Also cable management was very easy with the Velcro straps on the back but do to the psu's cables being very still and the mesh around them it took a little force to put the back panel on. Over all i really like this case and i think i'm going to get the white r6 when it comes out.
I don't really have many but one thing i would have liked to see improved in the case would be the room in between the gpu and psu, right now it's ok and a sfx psu would fix that but also would cost a lot more just for a little more air. Also the gpu cooler is horrible and if i knew this i would have gone with the sc version, i can't even install a aftermarket cooler due to the room but could install a g10 but then i'm not sure about the vram and power delivery cooling due to the fan being on the wrong side(i might get a cheap used h55 and do this cause i all ready have the g10 due to my last build and i sold the r9 390).
Ok card if you can find it for cheaper than other but the cooler is horrible unless you have a case with good airflow (but then why get a small card?). Highly recommend getting the sc version due to the better cooler, unless you want a loud card that easily will run at 80c in a restricted airflow case.
Great case! good cable management and looks great! only wish there was a little more room for the gpu to get more air.
