Many here use and recommend the Antec SUPER LANBOY.

i personally think most ThermalTake cases are great for cooling so have a look through their range but the word is if you're hardcore the Zalman silent case that includes all the cooling, sorry i can't remember the name of it and don't have time to provide links but i hope this helps.

How much have you got to spend on it?

My TT Kandalf has great cooling, 1 120mm at front, 1 120mm at back, 1 92 on the back and one 92 on the top, and on a review, they asked for another hdd cage to add another 120mm fan on the front, and the temperature wasn't 1* different.

Cases are personal preference. 120mm fans cool alot better than 80 at the same noise level.

I would go to the Tsunami, as the Soprano has cheap plastics at the front and no vents for the front intake fan.

You should be able to get it cheaper than this: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Thermaltake.html from somewhere else, but it still leaves you £5 for beer.

Thanks alot guys, I've gone for the Shark...was going to get the Tsunami but then got tempted by the possible upgrade to water cooling and removable motherboard tray....the case is a little big but i need it cool so that's why i guess......got it for £87 delivered by the way...just got to wait 1 week as it's out of stock....thanks again, James.
