Chassis Airflow
Chassis Airflow
Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Watercooling for the PC has been around for years in some form or another, for at least as long as Scan have been in business, with basic physics defining why you want to use it. That means for air cooling, to cope with increasing temperature in the heatsink you need to move the air across it faster. That is why thermostatically controlled fans in your PC will turn faster the hotter something gets.

CiT Defender Mid Tower Case with Black Interior, 500W PSU & 120mm Blue LED Fan is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solid case, quite good looking, excellent price for what you get. Comes with all the parts you need, assembly is simple and the thumbscrews were decent. The side panels don't flex too much, considering the price - and it's hard to ignore the value addition of a 500w psu. I used this as a cheap case to hold an old i7 I had moved on from, and it does the job admirably. The airflow is fine, there's a reasonable amount of space, and it was able to cope with water cooling and a 970 without too much effort. Basically a very good case for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good box with PSU I managed to get an i7 with a GTX 970 running with the supplied CPU. SSD, Spinning HDD and CDROM with a internal fan. Albeit I had to purchase some splitters but been running games full quality for weeks. TO be honest I thought the PSU would pop. THe box it self is standard box. Nice to have the extra fan and the PSU. Nice design for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing case for the price This case is extremely with the price. You would think that the PSU wouldn't be all that good as you are getting a case and the PSU for around £28 but it is extremely good. Has all the cables you need for your components and the fan at the front of the case provides a very bright blue lighting to your room. The PSU is very quiet too so you don't have to worry about noise. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who has a tight budget for their gaming PC.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good item that i would recommend I bought this item to use in my first ever gaming PC build. It is great value at just under £30 considering that it comes with a 500W PSU. The case arrived with my other PC parts in great condition, well packaged. To my slight dismay, despite the fact that most PSUs come with a kettle (main PC power) lead, this case and PSU did not. This slightly delayed my build. Having built my PC, I can now say with absolute sincerity that it looks absolutely amazing. The blue LED fan makes it look very cool, especially when playing in the dark, and the shape of the front of the case is just beautiful. the front section above the fan, with the power button and reset button, is very nicely textured with grooves. I would have given this product a complete five stars if it had come with a kettle lead and also if it had listed the size of the rear fan section as I have found problems after ordering the wrong size of fan. However, this is greatly my own fault. I would, in summary, recommend this case thoroughly to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good case for the price I bought this case to allow me to upgrade my graphics card. It was a very good price and basically does the job I need it to. The PSU seems to struggle a bit when overclocked settings are applied but otherwise performance is fine.

Questions & Answers

Does this have a cpu 8 pin

My motherboard requires an 8 pin connector
Asked by: Finbar
Hi there - this PSU is very basic. It has a 20+4 pin power cable for the mobo's main socket, and a 4 pin (not 8 pin) connector for near the cpu. It is worth checking your motherboard manual carefully - many motherboards with an 8 pin CPU connection will run happily off 4 pins. This is quite common. The PSU also has 2 sata power connectors, 2 molex 4 pin connectors and an old fashioned floppy drive power connector. I am running 2 hard drives and a graphics card (970) by using a molex to 6 pin adaptor. You'll struggle to go higher with this basic PSU.

How well does this case cool?

Will this cool a Ryzen 1200 with a Wraith Spire and RX550? 1 case fan sounds a bit warm.
Asked by: ItsYa165
Hello, With only one fan this would not be ideal to keep a powerful system cool however an entry spec config would be suitable in this case. Regards,
