Don't mean to hijack this thread, but how long are OCZ's power supply cables?

the SATA cables are VERY long.

Main 20+4 isn't too long...
the actual power supply box it self is very small compared to my 550.

I think Ill probably go with an CM stacker, and then see if I can find a cheap PCI express 4 or 2 HD card or RAID card.

3D aurora is nice but isn't as big...

May the wind always be at your back and the sun upon your face, and may the winds of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars

I have the Thermaltake Armor. It's definitely a nice big case, and has lots of 5.25" bays, and two harddrive cages that can house 3 hard drives a piece.

this case is teh sex!

anyways, if you dont have 300 bucks i have a 3d aurora and its a great case.

Lots of potential in regards to water cooling.

If you wanted to, you can mount a 3x120mm rad on the back without losing much functionality.
If I help you with something, you think I'm the bomb, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the star under my post.

i would definetly not get BTX form factor. it has come out for a while now and it still has not caught on because its an Intel only form factor. and then your cpu cooling fan also has to be special and support btx also. the btx concept is good but in reality it sucks. as for a full tower case i would reccomend the cm stacker.
