    Hi again lol with all my hardware questions.

    Cooler Master

    Is this case any good do you think it has intake and exhuast fans built in. My Mobo can fit into it fine.

    Thing is are mobo's easy to unscrew and screw onto the new case and fit all the parts. Also if i unscrew my mobo and take it out do i need to remove CPU and Fan or can i leave it on.

    And 1 more thing are PSU easy to remove and put into a new case. Also are PSU same sizes and will fit into newcase.

    Yes, that is a fine case,especially for the money.
    Sprocket lived in one for a while and it suited her well.

    Motherboards are easy to transfer from case to case. With a modicum of care you shouldn't have to remove the HSF/RAM.

    Yes, PSUs are standardized and easily swappable also.
    Four screws on the back panel are all that hold them in ( usually).

    Ah right so i just disconnect power from compents take out the PSu transfer that over. I do not think this case comes with a PSU does nto look like it from specs and price.

    Then i disconnect hard drive and opticals drivers and just transfer it over. One other question tho my Netowork and Nvidia card are firm in place becuase the show out back would these easily come out of their areas.

    P.S I saw Sprocket new home its really nice by the way its really good.

    The case does NOT come with a PSU ( a good thing,IMO).
    Spend the bucks and get a good one.

    Your AGP/PCI card are held in their slots by one screw.
    Look on the inside of the case and you'll see it.

    Don't let the name fool you, there is nothing inherently superior cooling-wise about CoolerMaster cases.
    They are just well built.

    The Centurion does have a sort of oddball back panel that I didn't like too well.
    Everything else was top-notch.

    The layout is typical, it's just that the PCI slot covers are part of the metal stamping.
    Once you remove them it's up to you to find the regular screw type cover to replace it.
    The sheetmetal is rather flimsy too, but that's true of most new cases these days.

    It's a fine case, and the modding potential is good, so don't let me talk you out of it.

    Ah you won't talk me out of it. So on the PCI slots area is that fan their like what you have on yours. I only have a netowork card i think it is to go into their on bottom one.

    Also the PSu exhaust area did u add the pipe to push air upwards are did that come as well.

    I added the PSU chimney, the fan in the PCI area and the black fan grill/filter.
