yes no picture of trying to close the lid. :) I don't think they'll get much room with a SI-120. It'll be sucking at the ceiling. But with all that space under the SI-120 and the SI-128, has anyone tried to put a fan UNDER? A 120mm fan wouldn't fit i guess because of the bars holding the opposite si...

How would this older Intel stack up against the new breed?
Any idea what they are worth used?

The nsk3300 I would say gets an E for effort but is a flawed, though not fatally so, design. I have a lot of experience with this case and here's what I learned. While the case is deep enough to handle a cooler like the ninja, practically speaking its not going to happen without pain. The reason is ...

so the mine fan should be oriented in the same way as the exhaust if they are in line like they are on my motherboard? Does that mean the arrow points toward the exhaust?

A/C Alpine beats MINE and XP-90!

at least on my little nsk3300. Kind of depressing
in that I got the Alpine for $11 shipped! The Alpine wins by a few degrees. Then the Mine by a couple of degrees and then the XP-90. The mine and A/C were blowing at 12v and the xp-90 was a low speed 80mm at ~ 6v. ;-) Maybe that's why.

sythe MINE fan direction

lets say you have a tower style case and it
is on its side and you are looking down at
the m/b. you see the top of the MINE with
a fan in it and it is parallel with the exhaust
fan. which way should the little arrows be pointing? Can someone help me with fan orientation?

nsk2400 cover "warped"?

It looks like the cover of my nsk2400 has warped somehow.
It just won't seem to go on and when I press one side down
the other pops up. Does anybody else have this issue yet?
I bought this case about 45 days ago.
