Which case with this kind of front cover with little to none air vent has good air flow though?

Those with better airflow usually have mesh infront, or got huge gap between the panels and intakes like corsair x570.
There is actually. It really depends on the case structure and how it is being designed. There are many other ways that a case can draw fresh air in. Not necessary to draw from the front.

That is how i landed on the PC-O11 from lian li. Which pulls in from the bottom to the top, or draws from the second chamber.

I think just like many other tech reviewers. The case design plays a important role. Doesnt mean it looks good = practical. Learnt an expensive lesson lol.

The bad point about enthoo evolv atx is the spacing between the top cover to the top rad. The large gap causes the hot air to recirculate it back to the case. Also partly because the vent holes for the top is far too small for heat to exhaust.

ya all those candy shots from hardwarecanuck etc, always tempted to change case after watching his video. most of these "reviewers" hardly touch on temps like gamer nexus, look good = rave review

I build my custom watercooling rig with it and i tore it down within 2 months.

Terrible airflow and regreted. Its beautiful, sleek and nice quality. But the air flow in that case is just terrible. To the extent that im getting the same temps as air cooled.
I can imagine that... Lol

I using AIO and only 1 x 280 rad which i mount it on the top. Hope its good

Hooted last week. Went for a better Fuji body and another XF50mm f2.0 lens.

So far lens collected, XC16-50mm f3.5-f5.6 stock lens, XF23mm f2.0 lens and XF50mm f2.0 lens.



Hooted a Transcend card reader USB C 3.1. Damn this is a fast card reader.

This is my first ever mechanical keyboard! The Ajazz Ak33 RGB mechanical keyboard.

And it's amazing! I got the Zorro MX blue switches. Not an expert on keyboard switches, but the keys feel good, not too clickity (if you know what I mean), much quieter than I expected. Key travel is smooth, which I like.

It's a tenkeyless keyboard (82 keys). And I really dig the RGB patterns you can set. There are like dozens of patterns and most of them you can cycle through 7 different colours or have it in a psychedelic rainbow effect. I actually spent quite a long time admiring the RGB illumination when I first unboxed it and plugged it to my PC.

The overall design really compliments my overall minimalistic look to my new desktop. It's really just the keyboard and the keys. No unecessary patterns, or designes around the keyboard.

One minor downside is that the right shift key is a little small. They shrunk that key to make way for the arrow buttons. Will have to get used to the smaller right shift key. But so far, I haven't made many mistakes to my typing.

Now I need to find things to type so that I can enjoy my keyboard more!
costs how much?

Very nice. Finally here! Also can share how is the asrock motherboard? I used asrock when they first released here (Z77) and had bad experience (RMA twice). Maybe they have improved since then.

Wah this is very nice hoot and relatively affordable considering the LEDs. I also don't really like overly clicky keyboard.
