      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Welcome to one of the best ATX pc case solutions available. If you want to overclock your processor and do so without creating system instability or melting down your processor then you should be considering one of these!!!! Based on the amazing GlobalWin802, the Coolercase "Extreme" provides the ultimate in cool case solutions using a total of 6, yes 6 fans. There is a front mounted 80mm SUNON fan for induction and two 80mm fans blowing cool air directly over the AGP/PCI card area – this is important because in recent times video cards and the like are starting to produce lots of heat too!. Air is then sucked out by an additional rear mounted 80mm SUNON and a further two top-mounted 80mm fans. It is powered by a 250w power supply unit. The case itself is a build of high quality. No unfinished edges to cut yourself on, easy thumbscrews with which to disassemble the case itself and best of all the ability to remove the inner chassis on which your motherboard sits. This allows you to fix the motherboard to the chassis and install processor, memory and accessory cards all OUT of the case. Into the main case install your floppy drive, hard drive, cd-rom/cd-writer and anything else you need into the drive bays at the front. This model has 3 x 5.25” bays and 3 x 3.5” bays, as well as one for the floppy drive. When you have finished just slide the inner chassis back into the main case, connect your cables for drives, power and the motherboard and there you go – A real breeze! My Intel P600E runs at about 850mhz in this case with no problems at all using an Abit BE6-II and PC133 SDRAM memory. The case stays at about 30° which is a huge amount less than the old setup I had – and I only have 4 fans connected currently. More importantly this seems to allow the system to stay up permanently with no system crashes/instabilities. Small problems appear to be lack of power splitters supplied with the unit.
      I picked them up for £2.00 a time at the local computer fair. The other maybe that if you have a lot of other devices in your system getting ALL the fans and ALL the devices might prove a little difficult with this particular PSU. Noise can be a little bit of a problem as it is quite a lot noisier than your average pc with all the fans going. Saying that if it’s locked away in a spare room then it won’t be much of a concern for you. Overall hard to fault for the serious "overclocker", although for the privilege you have to pay a little more than your average ATX case.
