Default Need a Case ~ 70bucks cdn

As i said need a case for my mini server/Foldie.

I'm looking at something like the Antec 300(65cdn), or maybe a 600(86cdn). The 600s nice because of the size and bigger top exaust. But its an odd look.

Anyone got any suggestions.

I'm buying local, which is very competive in case prices, from PC Cyber Canada - For All Your Computer Needs So if anybody can suggest something, that be swell.

My only concern is my 8800gt has the T-rad with 2 92mms so its a fast *******.

I use the Antec Mini P180 for my server, a Intel D945GCLF2 Atom 330 ITX motherboard @ 1.6Ghz

The White Steel one is on sale at PC Cyber.

I use a Mini P180 on my Intel Atom 330 ITX board. I don't know what size your board is.

Otherwise, my Dad uses this one, and likes it: PC Cyber Canada - For All Your Computer Needs

(sorry about that, can you join these two posts? I accidentally clicked post without knowing about it)

One thing that I didn't mrention, and most wouldn't assume, the cpu and gpu run at or around 100% 24/7 as its folding too.

Thanks for the suggestions so far.

What case do you have at the moment and what's wrong with it? Knowing what's wrong with the current one will help in deciding, I think.

It's a case off a crap MDG from 2000 maybe. I run it with no sides, and has 2 harddrive slots.

it has 1 60mm intake, and 1 60mm exhaust. Its absolute crap, basically I really don't have one.
