Default Computer cases

I was wondering if there is a computer case with a few fans and a speed control?

I was also wondering what you guys think is a cool gaming case.

for a gaming case i like the aspire x-cruiser, and the TT Tsunami.

as for the fans, just get a case that has alot of fans, preferably a full tower and a fan controller.

like this: TT armor

Fan controllers:

dont know which fan controlller is the best one.

Look up the raidmax storm. It comes standard with 5 80mm fans. Loud as all H3ll, but you can replace them. I do know still carries it, but since it's an older model most places don't. I think they have it for about 50-60 USD. It may not be the worlds best case to most people but I have one and love the cooling it gives me. but hey, I'm a cheap b@5tard... LOL

yeah, i highly reccomend my case. its a Lian Li, the model is in my sig idk it by hand. but, i had the TT tsunami and i had such a bad experience with it. IMO terrible case. it looks sexy but its hard as **** to build with if you've got a big PSU like mine. i love my new Lian case, i got a 15 buck 4 channel fan controller that works like a dream. the lian case is really really really quiet. 12cfm fans, wow. no comparison to my tsunami.

Well, I'm partial to Cooler Master since I sell them...a really cool case, especially if you are a college student (lugging your comp and dirty clothes back home every holiday) is the Ammo 533. Just built one for my daughter-she loves it.
