    Negative on the Mobo Tray. I am not sure ANTEC makes a case that the MOBO Tray will slide out.

    Question

    Anyone t this case yet and identified any 'functional mods' for it to further improve performance? Or are people only looking to do cosmetic mods. I have a chance to get one this week for £20 off so am going to grab one, but my main concern is keeping the low noise at this point.

    Its a Very quite Case... I can't hear it at all. There are plenty of Mods you could do to the case. Top Blow Hole (Nice quiet 92mm), most are cosmetic for looks but I am sure you could add this and that to improve air flow or whatever..

    Thanks TAZTG

    I may well do that, I'm looking to get this case (initially at least) for my server which is currently an Cheiftec (Antec style). I may mod that case and get some experience there, then maybe try on this nice baby afterwards. May even put a blow hole in with no fan to begin with, just a grill to allow heat out 'passivley' I'm not too hot on the modding or experience side, but after last re-building my server, I kicked myself at all the things I could have done first before putting it all back together

    Need to start re-reading all the 'modding' guides again


    btw, everytime I see you post, it makes me wanna play Unreal Tournament

    This part of the specs cracks me up;

    3.0 GHz Compatible
    Too bad it wont work with the new 3.2 P4 out

    Actually it will. AFAIK Intel hasn't spec'd in a new test for the slightly higher CPU's. Then again I haven't actually checked Intel's site in awhile.

    Yeah.. I was being sarcastic. Just found it funny that a case is spec'd to run a certain CPU speed.
