Anyone know how well the thermaltake is to wire? And how much rooms behind the brear panel.

The Centurion 590... Does the psu need to be upside down?

So, are Antec cases now not the "cool" kind?

If that Thermaltake is anything like the Thermaltake M9 or V9 (black edition), then they are not fun for wiring. VERY little space on the left for wire management in both of them imo.

The 600 is hideous IMO, the 300 is nicer and the VSK-2000 is better still. PC Cyber Canada - For All Your Computer Needs not too bad but the Centurion 590 would get my money I think.

Because of the T-rad on my 8800, i need a bit bigger case to allow airflow through it. Yha the 600 is abit fugly, but does look roomy.

I'm starting to lean towards the 590 or the thermaltake.

in the 590, it looks like it has holes to support psus facing both down and up, and it has a vented bottom.

i was just trying to give you some more options and you had asked if anyone had any more suggestions so...yea
