I've never understood why GPU's now have their heat firing down, it only rises back up to the GPU.


Back in the ISA/VLB days the GPU vented upwards.


Is it written in law or a standard somewhere that GPU's must vent heat down?


Also, what happened to the old desktop case that you could sit a monitor on?

What do you mean heat firing down? Heat is push outwards throught the sides of the gPU or out the back of the case. GPU upside down allows heat to also dissipate upwards through the back side of the PCB

I can already hear Tom on the PSU shroud and drive cage! :-)


We'll have to see on review abut performance, but past HAFs had all the aesthetic appeal of a humvee and this looks just yawn. Sure they consulted, there are a couple of companies that Tech Jesus shouts out as wanting feedback and reading the coments when he is on his Taipei jolly. I don't recall CM ever being one of them. This looks like just another a minor tweak of the usual metal box. Thermaltacky comes to mind.


A case wide enough for 200mm fans with 120mm rather than 140mm fans elsewhere? Yeah right.


Graphics cards are just as much about a shroud you can't see in a regular orientaton. I'd flip them just for that reason. Still, a case wide enough for 200mm fans should be wide enough for a vertical installation that won't compromise a three slot card. We'll have to see.

they should just update the HAF-X and release it as it's a proper case
