Case Manufacturers Have Messed Up - SteelCrysis - 10-21-2017

Summary:
  • Cases with solid front panels are being badly designed with less space for air to enter, resulting in lost performance and increased power draw
  • This also results in more noise
  • PSU shrouds can slightly choke open-air-cooled graphics cards if the case is small enough
  • Vertically-mounted open-air-cooled graphics cards (the graphics card being mounted with the PCIe connector facing down) suffer increased temperatures due to being next to the side of the case
