So, I'll be ordering my PC when I get my next wage at the end of the month, but after reading some reviews for my case (Maelstrom T900) it said the following pro's and con's.
Issues with large graphics cards...Pros:
Great cooling performance
CPU back-plate access
LED light on/off switch
Poor cable management
Difficult installation of HDDs
Rear I/O expansion covers not reusable
Issues with large graphics cards
I mainly wanted the case because of the great airflow and cooling it gives as I'm tired of overheating my PC's, but will it be able to fit my GTX 570, and have room for a new GPU in about 2-4 years time? Doesn't exactly say how much of a GPU space problem the case has. Anyone got a Maelstrom T900 Case that could comment on the space?
This following statement in the review worries me a little bit though, and could it be prevented any way?
Surely you could put something over the mesh that's has finer holes then the mesh itself to prevent dust from getting in, or would that be a bad idea? Would it infact stop/reduce the airflow or is the dust problem infact not that big of a problem? Again, anyone with a Maelstrom T900 case that could comment on the dust?"The side panel that houses the fan has a metal mesh design which gives you a limited view into the case. The mesh will allow for good airflow but the holes are quite large which might not prevent dust from getting into the case. This could quickly become a problem as it does not take much time for dust to build up."
