the entire intake area? If so, at least that perforated plate looks removable. Did you test it with the plate removed to see if there was any improvement in the airflow?
That is it.
No we did not test it at all yet, enough other things to keep busy with. Still not decided whether it's actually worth a review. If we did one, it could probably be summed up thus:
The PC-B12 is classic aluminum LianLi chassis with high quality parts, precision fit and minimalist styling, and a level of airflow venting that's a throwback to cases from a decade ago... but for the use of 120mm fans. Its cooling capability is hobbled by the restrictive vents, especially the intake, but if you restrict total power to perhaps 100W, the absence of holes in the case might help you achieve a low noise level. Turning up the intake fans even just a bit, however, causes the air resonance in the intake tunnel to rear its ugly head.
