Default Coolermaster / Koolance Case?

Hi all

I'm deciding on a new case for my computer build.

Has anyone got the Coolermaster Praetorian case? If so, what is it like for cooling. I know it has 4 fans. 2 at the front to help cool the HDD, 1 blow hole and 1 at the rear.

Is this case better than the Wavemaster (with only 3 fans)?

Also, I recently read that some people had problems with their Koolance cases - something to do with some stuff building up around their CPU/Cooler


Cheers
S

a praetorian is a great case, and better then the wavemaster, what's more, it's 1.5 kg lighter at 6.3 kg!alu-power!

and if you wish to watercool it, let someone drill upon the top hole and put 1 or 2 120 mms with a nice grill in it, and put the rad there, it'll beat that koolance anyday

however if you want real cooling power AND space : get a stacker , up to 3 120 mm inhalers, and 120 mm exhaler and a 80mm top fan
what it weighs is unknown?
coolermaster doesn't tell on their site which is a typical way for eastern companies to explain it's extremely heavy

Thanks for the quick response.

Yea, I'd really like Aluminium as it's meant to be better for cooling.
By stacker, do you mean a tower case? But if stacker will be better for cooling then I'd be happy to go for that - I'm not really bothered about looks (apart from when it comes to girls ) but performance.

I'm going to get an AMD XP-M (mobile) 2600+ and overclock it you see.

I wish I could afford the vapochill

Just one more question would decent air cooling do a good enough cooling job on an XP-M 2660=? Maybe a Thermaltake.

Cheers

LINK : behold the CM stacker





on the cooling side, nobody beats this...
your xp2600 can be quite chilly, just put the crossflow fan in there, and some 120mm's (2 front, you'll still have 4-5 pci slots left), 1 back), 80mm top, two 80mms bottom back in...that'd do your cpu some good and aircool it with a thermalright sp97 with a good 92mm fan, it'll be just as cool as most WC-kits or close


vapochill is weak , I just bought me a prometeia mach2 gt last week, that'll be the death of me at -65C


ps if you've got a minute, please fill out your details, it's always nice to know where somebody is from and such
