The Case Fans 

Now we are going to add the fans.

The two included 120 mm blue LED fans are SunBeamTech units rated at a 0.16A power draw, pushing 45 cfm, and producing 21.75 dB.  These fans are a good balance of low noise and good airflow, making them ideal for your standard home PC.  You can plug them right into your motherboard via the fan headers, or use the provided 3 pin to 4 pin molex adapters to plug them into your power supply leads.



The fans come with some very nice chrome finger guards. I used the screws included with the fans and not the screws included with the case.  The screws included with the case were a little large for my liking.



Next I installed the metal motherboard stand offs.  Make sure you install these as needed for your board application.  The last thing you need is your hardware shorting out from a misplaced stand off!  I would recommend going ahead and installing your hardware at this point.

I left the top and side off for easy access. I did, however, finish the assembly of the case so I could take pictures for this review.  I also added the front switch and USB header panel. You can wait until your hardware is in to install this, as the cables can get in your way while installing your board.

As you can see, this case looks great.  I can’t wait to see my hardware in there.  Let’s get on with it then.
