But some cases will still turn out better than others, even with modifications.

How many cases do you know that, even with modifications, can hold a 360mm radiator and watercooling system, completely internally, for example?
Certainly not a cheapo standard ATX case. But my PC-A70 does that and more, and at the same time having plenty of room for hard drives, multiple video cards, etc.

In fact, the PC-A70 is one of only a very small amount of cases that can do that. And it can do so easily.

and a 240mm radiator, and a EK250 reservoir or two.

i plan on getting an A70 also. i think the TJ07 and the Mountain Mods cases are the only ones that can hold a PA120.3 and at least another PA120.2 radiator.

how many people need that fancy of a cooling system? i mean seriously the only time you really need watercooling is if your doing some serious overclocking. and again, with a dremal and some creativity one can really do some crazy stuff. lol im not dissin people who like to buy the fancy cases, but I dont need watercooling, I dont overclock, and i got plenty of fans. yeah, its kinda noisy, but im a gamer, and about the only thing i use the system for is gaming. the instant i power my games up all i hear is the game. my old case works for me. Im one of those people build a system for what you need and want. if you need and or want a fancy case to easily contain your water cooling then get one. but if you just want a case to hold your mobo, power supply, and couple hard drives, and arny picky about looks, dont waste a lot of money on it. just get one that does what you need it to.

It depends what you define as a fancy case - most fancy cases are fancy because they are awesome...

Yeah i agree with this, especially if you dont have a modular PSU... BTW in your sig it says you have a 'Corsair 520vx' and that unit dosent actually exist do you have the 520HX or the 550VX?

I dont think you can say that... Cases are probably the most objective part of the system as to whether it is good or not.

I worded it wrong. I think we can agree that is has the best quantity for money; holes for WCing, great cable management, great layout, customizable - its just superb for the money.
