Default New case

Alright, seems my comp is having some heating problems playing games.

Looking for a new case to help keep temps low as possible, especially since summer is coming up.

Would like some opinions on;

thermaltake VH6000BWS
Armor+ VH6000BWS

Thermaltake Mozart TX Cube
Mozart TX

Or recommend any others you think are good?..

these are popular ones:

I've used this before, good quality, has a lot of room in it:

Nice cases, I love that Xclio-2000 but cannot find it for sale anywhere in Australia. Don't trust the handling of postage from OS.. will most likely get here in a hundred pieces.

Antec 900s are a pain to wire.

I'm hating my Armor more and more. Couldn't tell you why, I'm just getting sick of it.

the Mozart is a big case. I like the looks too. I would try to stray away from the more popular cases just so you can be different

Ya i agree there.

If you have enough space for the Mozart i would get it. Supposebly you house a secondary micro atx pc in there.

I decided against the Mozart for now until my next build.

I'll most likely go with the Xlio A380 because it's available.. otherwise I would have gone for the Xclio-2000 any day.

EDIT - On a second thought I'll see if my computer guy can order it in, might be worth it.
