Default Just bought a new case!

Well, I officially ordered a new case.

Cooler Master CM690...great case from what I've been seeing..It should fit a MCR220 very nicely.

And its less flashy than my Antec 900

Simple cases are the way to go, You have people over and they're like "oh its just some normal computer..." of course when they get on it, BAM and they're bewildered by the raw power of the beast lurking within.

How much are you thinking of selling the Antec 900 for?

Edit** Nevermind, found your antec for sale.

I was going for that case - it looked very nice.

But I went for the P182 for professionalism.

I cant wait for the 1200 to come out. I love the cooling setup of the 900, but the lights and window are really too flashy for me. I replaced all of the tri-cool led fans with normal fans. Now the only thing keeping me up at night are my tracers, which i'll be replacing with reapers soon anyway. Lemme know how well it cools compared to the 900.

I'll most likely do a side panel...but not until i've got a H2O loop first.
