The NH-L12S should be okay. NH-L9x65 probably not. This is based on distance of fan from side of case, and not cooler height.
Hmmm the NH-L12s is both taller and wider than the NH-L9x65, no?The NH-L12S should be okay. NH-L9x65 probably not. This is based on distance of fan from side of case, and not cooler height.
He’s talking about fan orientation between the 2 I believe.Hmmm the NH-L12s is both taller and wider than the NH-L9x65, no?
Most people rarely press their power buttons anymore, and the clean front is a key design feature of the case..
There was a dark period of my life where i did that everytime i wanted to turn on my PC.Maybe he jumpstarts the motherboard with a screwdriver every time? ^^
L12 and the L12S are both taller but the fans are underneath it. So in effect, there is more distance between the fan and the side panelHmmm the NH-L12s is both taller and wider than the NH-L9x65, no?
Glad you like the clean front. I like having the power button on the back.
The space at the front is somewhat historical. First for 2.5 inch drives, then hopes of internal PSU, and now maybe just for cooling and a single 2.5 inch drive... who knows. It's also there to maintain proportions, and to make the case easy to work in.
I was thinking today that one cool use for a front fan would be a window option. If you use an L9i or a C7 cooler, you can feed it with a front fan and have a window side panel. Would be the smallest PC case with a window and would look pretty cool in my opinion.
Are there currently any options for purchasing this case?
Not at this time. I am currently trying to find another sheet metal parts manufacturer in my area that isn't too expensive. If I can find someone, then there's a good chance I'll offer a new model in the near future.
Can this case accomodate full size GPUs (for instance a GTX 980Ti)?
As far as I read/understood, no.Hi there!
I don't have much information about this case but from what i understand you can't buy it anymore. I love the layout and i want to ask, is the old version (L4) compatibile with HD plex 160W AC-DC psu, for a brickless build?
