Coolermaster Mystique ATX Case Review

Can the Mystique combine a good look pre-mod with useful features and excellent cooling? We examine Coolermaster's latest in detail in this review.

Hi

I noticed that you mentioned that you placed a fan to help cool down the video card. Can you please show me how you did it. I did not see how this was done. I have ordered the Mystique (still can't decide what is better black or silver). I noticed a few sites that have reviewed the Mystique and they also mentioned the heat issue as well. I am thinking of making a gaming machine with dual video cards. Did you do anthing different to attache the fan? Please let me know.

Many thanks

jmke, I think you'd definitely notice a difference in CPU temps if you had not got the CPU vent there (especially with that blow-down style CPU HSF). Is the vent duct extendable (looks like it is)?
With the GPU vent on my Antec SLK I found blocking it actually lowered all my overall temps due to preventing airflow short-circuits but if you have a hot GPU to cool....
gponcho, I'd think you'd manage to mount the 92mm fan on that grille no problem. There are enough holes to put screws through!

Thanks I will try that

What fan would you recommend that will do the job but be very quiet. Also will the holes line up with the fan?

@ Gponcho:
Below the opening where the blowhole is mounted, a 9cm fan, fits exactly, so anyone can place a fan there.
Any silent one will do, I used a 9cm Noiseblocker SE2 @7V

@ Firetech:
If I use a 9cm Vantec Tornado the Coretemp is around 5 degrees lower, when compaired to my Noiseblocker SE2.
There won`t be any real impact on a direct intake versus a good airflow through the system.
