I would have the front and side blow in and the back ones blow out.

How to remove front panel of Centurion C5 [CoolerMaster]

Hi there,

Method A

1. Remove both side panels on the back of the front bezel and secc there's three plastic black locks with circular head ( On the top, middle, bottom of the front panel ) on the right side and three on the left keeping the panel to the case.

2. push the plastic black screws enough until the front panel is loose.

Method B
1. Remove the right side panel and push the three plastic black locks with circular head ( On the top, middle, bottom of the front panel ).. do this if you will not put screws on both sides of the drives.

2. Use something like butter knife on a boundary that is in between the loose part and tight part twist the knife.

Hopefully this information helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Known weak points & tips for the Antec P18x series

The Antec P180, P182 and P183 are great quality cases, but they have some minor issues, which are either easily fixed or covered by the great Antec warranty. Below are some pointers and tips:

- The plastic pins of the side-plastic on the front-door are a little weak and can break, leaving the door "hanging" when opened. To fix this, remove the door from the case and carefully screw a tiny screw in place to "replace" the broken plastic pin (at the exact location the plastic pin was originally). Do it from the inside out, until the screw is like 3 or 4mm outside the panel and then put the door back in. You might want to make the screw-top a little blunt first too.

- The (plastic) L-hooks on the side-panels are also known the break, so be very careful when taking the panel of or setting it back. There's no easy fix for a broken hook, but luckily a broken hook hardly effects the fit.

- A good airflow is essential to efficient cooling of the computer components. The best setup in this case is to use 2 intake fans at the front (1 directly behind the airfilter at the front and 1 in the bottom compartment in front of the power supply) and 2 exhaust fans at the back and top. This will result in fresh, cold air sucked into the case at the front and the warm air pushed outside the case at the back. There are no special 'intake' or 'exhaust' fans, it's just down to how you fit the fans. Most fans have an arrow on 1 of their sides indicating the direction of the airflow.

- As with any computer case, you still need to "clean" the inside of the case every X months, since dust will always get in, with or without any filter. When there's too much dust inside the case it will hinder airflow, causing the temperature to rise, which causes fans to blow harder and make more noise. In the end it could jam/clutter soo much that your computer becomes "instable" or slow due too overheating. Don't use a vacuum-cleaner (due to static electricity which can damage the PC electronics), but just blow it out or use some canned-air or dry toiletpaper. Mind your eyes though !

Gaming case


I have seen the ThermalTake V3 Black Edition case, and worked with it.

The tool less option for the Optical Drives and Hard Drives were only adequate enough for 3 Drives. They were also a little loose, so if you are going to get the case, I suggest you put screws in the Drives instead.

The case only comes with one fan, so for overclocking or using a powerful Graphic Card, may require you to get additional fans (you can add up to 3 additional fans). In order to achieve good airflow you must have at least 2 fans (one in the front, and one in the back of the case). Overall the case is decent, but a little flimsy. I wouldn't carry it around for LAN Parties or such, this is just a cheap regular case.

If you are looking at other Midtower Cases, I suggest the RaidMax Smilodon, the fans come equipped and the tool less features are a lot better. It also has a side window and Video Card locking mechanism.

Ultra m923 mid-tower case won't stop beeping

The problem is the board on the case's display. It has temp alarms for your components(video card, hdd, cpu), there are temp probes for you to set so you can monitor these temps. However the board that controls these functions, or at least mine and many others I have read about, is defective. It will change display constantly and sometimes have garbage display. It is setting its own limits for what is considered a hi temperature. The limit it has set for one of your components is < room temperature so it thinks you are having an overheating problem. You can manually set the limit for overheat and it will fix it for a while, but it will prob happen again.

I have a power supply that is turning itself off immediately after switching it on it is a new motherboard as well Any ideas why ?

I think either the MB or the CPU is with problems.

Try (2 after 1 works, 3 after 2 works...):
1) only PSU+MB+CPU and Fan - works? beeps like crazy?
2) add memory - works? single beep?
3) add/connect video - any image?

All other connectors off (disks, etc) only PSU, fan and case buttons.

If you don't get past 1), go back to the store and have it tested/returned there.

Raidmax Sirius mid-tower case fan alarm

Here are some solutions:
1. Try to use some silicon oil in fan apertures to decrease rub
2. Try to manually (look for a mainboard's service software settings) decrease rotation speed if available
3. Less recomended: disconnect fan cable from mainboard and don't stress your computer (try not to overheat, - work with software that uses less resources) and buy a new one when available
