Re: Ninja SNCJ-1000 for socket 1155 with Noctua backplate -

Has anyone successfully used the Noctua NM-I3 kit to mount a Ninja Plus "Rev.B" 1100 to socket 1155? My Core2 Duo/socket 775 board died 2 weeks ago so I upgraded to a i5-2500k/socket 1155 board and was hoping to reuse my Ninja, only to sadly discover that Scythe doesn't make an adapter kit for it. :...

You might try asking in the Directron forums to see if they can contact Soldam. If you are looking for a door panel type like that you might try contacting Antec and other known US case companies suggesting they make a after market part like that for their popular models.

It looks like will fit either (2) 60mm or 80mm fans in front, but a 120mm would require removal of the front usb and audio ports. Still it's a nice price for a aluminum case w/120mm fan.

It's probably better that it came without a fan cause silencing die hards would have tossed it out and stuck in a undervolted Papst anyway.

I just wished the P160 went for a nice even $100. At $80, I'm thinking of going for a Super Lanboy instead.

Looks like Directron has the P160 in stock now. (no more ETA)
At $114 it's the best price I've found so far.

If anyone has one, please post some pics of the front grill area/bezzel where the fan is mounted as I'm curious to how much clearance there is for airflow.

For temporary storage / more programs you could use a external firewire or USB 2.0 hard drive on a 25ft+ cable stuffed out of the way.

I wonder how much faster boot time would be using a Raid 0 setup with compactflash?

Newegg has the Super Lanboy in for $80 w/$15 shipping. I just noticed that it has 120mm fans front and back where as the older model had only 80mm. Aside from it missing front firewire ports, I might end up picking up one of these instead of the P160 (been waiting for a review).

If you want to go for the do-it-yourself mod option, Directron offers the Compucase LX-6A19 for $39 + shipping in beige or black . PSU is *not* included, and the lower bezel appears to be sleightly different than the D8000. I'm leaning toward this myself but I'm waiting for the Antec P160 to ship.
