Default High Performance Case

Ok so I'm ditching my NZXT Lexa because mid tower sucks and I want better cooling and more space.


I will be housing 5 Hard drives (possibly 6), and my GameXtreme 700 has MONSTER long cables, so full tower is needed.

I was looking at the Cool Master stacker, and it looks like the perfect case, plus I can get a side window for it as well.


But then I look at all these BTX cases and think to my self man, those look so easy for wire management.

Any ideas?


Must be full tower...

Yea the cooler master stacker is a great full tower. One of the biggest. Perfect for the components you have.

Yeah thats what I was thinking.


Should be long enough for these new monster DX10 cards any way :freak:


Sucks though as im limited to my SATA hard drives....I have used all 4 and I have no PCI slots left to buy a SATA card

But yeah. Hard drives are so cheap any way.


Any other ideas or reccomendations?

Lian Li FTW! No, really, this is the nicest case I've ever had. I have a PC-61.

It's mid-tower.....


OCZ GameXstreme 700 and Mid tower are not freinds. At all.

lol
