I just got one of those cases yesterday and need some help.
in that page, there's something called "PCI long card bracket" what is that for?
at first, I thought it was for cleaning the filter. Anyone knows?
something else, this case has a front audio and been having problems connecting the cables. Since Im using my trusty audigy do I have to install the ac97 drivers for the front audio to make it work?
Pleaseconsultyourmotherboardmanualtofindoutthesect ionof" frontpanelaudio connector".1.connect"MIC-VCC"to"MICPOWER" or" MICPWR" onyourmotherboard2.connect"MIC-IN"to"MICINPUT" or"MIC2" onyour motherboard.3.connect"GND"to"GROUND" or"AGND" onyour motherboard.4.connecttwo"EARL"to"BLINE_OUT_ L"and"Lineout_ L".5.connecttwo"EARR" to"BLINE_OUT_R"and" Lineout_ R".
I dont understand this....
plus, the cables from the case it just says " ear L, ear R, ear L, and ear R.....
nothing about line out and stuff....

the bracket seems to be attached to the inside of the side fans, just to add physical support for a heavy PCI card, which is rare. Not particularly useful I'd say.

this is a diagram that i photo a while ago

i dont know about the plugger majiggers...but i just looked up your case on newegg...and let me tell you i think thats a bit extravagent for a case...i spent $30 USD on mine... but then yours comes with like 8 fans , *****in case, and cool little fan controller thing on the front...but according to newegg it dont even come with power supply and its $200 USD dollars...i almost pissed myself...you find a gold mine in your basement or something man? 9700 pro and this? thats like...a lot more than ill see in the next 10 years that i could spend on a computer
May 4th, 2003, 04:03
it has 7 fans not 8
I needed this case because my old case was making too much noise, ask phoenix and since the computer is next to my brother's room he couldn't sleep because of the noise. The power supply doesn't cost more than 130 down here.
not a gold mine. I just had the money to spend on this thingy. Plus, my brother is helping me with the power supply.
May 4th, 2003, 04:09
still quite a bit...mine 30 and came with a power supply...its not too loud...but if ya got the money...spend it on what you want...
May 4th, 2003, 04:40
of course, it's quite money
and it's something we wanna get
my last case was 50 worth
May 4th, 2003, 04:47
:) at least you know it will be cool...7 fans...even crappy ones...would keep a motherboard cool
May 4th, 2003, 04:57
yeah, I know
but I bought too because my radeon9700 AIW was heating too much at afternoons..... I got pretty much random restarts.... that's why I bought it too.
May 6th, 2003, 01:36
you bought the case, OMG, seems as D.D. says that you've been kind of upgrading like if money wouldn't matter j/k.
Your old case can be heard from the street.
Just for the record the temperature here has been 35°C to 38°C these days obviously affects AMD built systems.
May 6th, 2003, 07:35
yeah, it could be heard from the street... damn case :eek:
but this one, sounds makes less noise than the last case. I just have to wait for the power supply to arrive.
But yeah, I do care about my money :grin: have to buy some clothes now ;)

It has a CD Bresel door,I hate those
May 7th, 2003, 01:12
so, everyone just giving comments about the case but no one has actually tell me how to connect those cables :sad:
May 7th, 2003, 04:21
Well, I really don't know, but here's my guess:
If you are using an Audigy, and disable your mobo sound, then you shouldn't connect the cables to your mobo, right? But I don't know if Audigy has a connector inside for those cables. Consult your Audigy user manual. :emb:
May 7th, 2003, 04:39
I will check that out
but I doubt that audigy has those.
