Default Buying a new case....

I'm looking to buy a new case, because my case is huge and the ugly computer-cream color. Don't recomend painting it or moding it myself because, i tried, and now its way messed up, lol

So, I'm looking for a new case, black, maybe a couple lights, good cooling, and potential to add more fans or lights or other mods and stuff...

I checked up on new egg and say the Aspire X-Dreamer II:



Good price, looks awesome, potential for further moding?

Please recomend anything else, or give your input... thanks

i think this case is great, it was alot of lighting
and just add a 120mm red led fan and it would be killer.

Does the aspire x-dreamer have some sort over cover on it.... because I have a white cdrom, and that would uglify it

Yeah it has two stealthed cd-rom drives. I just bought a Green Aspire Turbo Case and its great so far. Kinda flimsy, I realized that when I had leaned on it, but it's straight.

I had to do a little sanding on the side of my cd-rom because it wouldnt fit all the way through in the drive bay... so yea.

When there's a louder sound it'll either go brighter or it will turn on due to the level of sound. You can get them on mobile phones and stuff.

I suggest any of these, also suggest a Full-Tower Case.

i use to have a old case, creamy colour and they were ugly. then i got my iCute case looks good and droped the case temp by over 15 degree, and plus the case was only $150 and came with a 350W PS (but i droped that and got a 480W not shown in pic)
