    Default Smilodon ..yes by Raidmax

    I was surprised by this case. Many of you hear Raidmax and think, 'gross'. Some of their cases look cheap, and when compates to Lian Li, Thermal Take, or ASUS they don't really compete.

    Not True.

    I was genuinely impressed by a Raidmax, specifically the Smilodon! Link


    The main reasons why I bought this case:
    A) My last case was acrylic, and things got hot!
    B) The unique idea for the mobo tray, putting together the computer was a snap, literally!
    C) It's an almost tool-less design.
    D) You can't see it but there are 4 or 5 slots at the bottom of the case for HD's, perfect for a server, they swivel so that you can slot the drives in, and then swivel the tray back in. You can also attatch a fan to cool them.
    E) The case door is nice and sturdy looking; and it is sturdy in practice!
    F) Big window with a safety bar, great for logos.
    G) Black and Blue design basically matches my whole comp setup.
    H) I could really go on for a while...

    The case comes with 2 80mm fans, and 1 120mm fan. Nice little addition there...

    Anyways, after I get a good digital camera I'm going to review this product for real, showing you every nook and cranny this case has.

    I bought the case for under $100, and It's definitely worth more like $200.

    That looks pretty nice, but why the hell does it have Dirk-Tooth written on the side?

    Smilodon isn't just a computer you know! It's also a ridiculous name for a Saber Tooth Tiger. Dirk Tooth means... um... actually I am not sure. I think it was some kind of name for some new fossils that a few scientists found awhile back. This is all I could really pull up to explain it...

    1) Dirk-tooth -- two long, narrow upper canine teeth and short legs, "built like a bear."
    2) Scimitar-tooth -- two shorter, broader upper canines and long legs "built like a cheetah."

    I think the Dirk Tooth was native to where I live now... but I am not sure and can't confirm that. I haven't a clue on the where abouts of the Scimitar Tooth.

    Basically... Raidmax is a tard. I don't see how this case resembles anything that I just said. But I kind of like it still... I would like it more if a modder made it and not a company though.

    This video persuaded me, otherwise I would of said it was ugly.

    People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true. People’s heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool.

    Yeah the case is named after a saber tooth. I don't really care for the logos and lettering, but if I ever mod thise case I'm going to put in my logos and words.

    The holding bar is perfect for sponsor names/whatever your computer's name is. If your computer doesn't have a name you must name it now!

    I'm dead serious.
