Online retailers can be so fast sometimes. Newegg, Silenx and EndPCNoise all got me what I ordered in 2 days. Way cool.
So I started puting things together last night. First impressions...the Ever Case 4252B case is pretty well made for a $37 case. Most edges are curled over to prevent cuts, the construction is sturdy and as I said before, except for the "back" side panel, it is entirely tool-less. By the way, I thought it was very cool that the case has built in "stand-offs" so I didn't have to mount any for the motherboard.
As far as the acoustic matting, it took about 2 hours to put it all in. Comes with 2 thinner sheets, 1 thick sheet, 2 x 5.25" bay foam blocks and 1 x 3.5" bay foam block. One sheet went in the "back" side panel, which now will be a complete pain to ever get off, but luckily the case is designed so this isn't a problem. The thick sheet went on the "front" side panel opposite where the motherboard sits, with a hole cut in it to fit the CPU fan intake vent that comes with the case. The other thin sheet was used for the top of the case and the bottom which leaves extra for any other places where it might be needed.
Also mounted in the Seasonic 600W power supply. This thing is a mammoth. Heavy and solid with a 120mm fan on the bottom to pull hot air out of the case.
Installed the 120mm Silenx case fan in the back of the case, as well, to pull air out of the case.
Anyhow, that's all for now, will post updates as they happen, which won't be until tomorrow evening at the earliest since I'm going out of town. Have a great weekend!
