yeah its the price. now i am going with this.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811217008

Anything is better than what i have now for my 3rd build. I have a beige case with about 5 fans in and parts are still getting hot.

I just hate this beige case but i had no money after i got my 19" lcd for my 3rd build. I still have no money and i have 3 jobs so that Jpac case i am getting for free from a friend cause i have a 250gb hard drive thats brand new and he needs it so where trading.

Norcent I think you might like this case better
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119068

I have it for my brand new C2D build and my dad liked it so much he got it for his new server pc. The front is fully metal mesh so it's got great airflow, 2 very nice cooler master fans, completely tooless, very easy to work in. It keeps my C2D 6300 and radeon x1950 running very cool and it's exceptionally quiet.

I know i looked at that. The thing i hate is that i can't see inside. no side window.

If i hear sizzling/popping again coming from this computer i don't want to do process and elimination cause that takes longer than looking in the case and seeing what might be going.

I know i could mod a window on the side but it wouldn't look very good.

Whatever you do, do not use their included Powersupplies.

I like this case. It's Full ATX so you'll have more room, unless the size of the case is an issue. Plus it has 4 fans, and only 3 dollars more (while newegg offers the $10 savings)
