Heh... the roswell's long gone. :)

This Case measures out pretty close to 15" square X 8.5" wide. Both of the Roswell's I built in recently were a good 1" shorter fore/aft, and over 1" shorter in depth.

As far as noise goes.... it's not silent by any means, but that's probably more of a function of the sickleflow fans which using the stock profile on the board still topped out @ 1700 (and change) under full load.

edit: Noise concerns or not, plan on at the very least swapping out the stock fan, and more than likely sourcing two replacements. The case is wide enough that a person could also consider 2 40mm fans side by each at the bottom if they had an extra long PSU.

Slightly better Time Spy score than my laptop in spite of the laptop having a significantly higher scoring CPU....


I haven't played much with the OC on this card, not sure if it's worth pushing for the type of gaming my young lad is most likely to throw at it.
