Default PC Case advice.

Hi all,

Just need some advice on PC cases. I'm building a new system for myself and I'm currently torn between two cases, both made by Coolermaster.

For first one is the Coolermaster Wavemaster, the other is CoolerMaster Mystique 632.

I'm not sure which one would be best, for me. I'm mostly worried about the size factor, as I've just bought a Geforce 8800 GTS graphics card, and a huge Akasa-120 Evo Heatpipe cooler with fan.

Any ideas which one would be best for me?

I read somewhere that the Mystique doesn't fit an 8800GTX, don't know about a GTS. However, the WaveMaster does fit a GTX.


See Wii. See Wii run. See Wii blow all the other consoles out of the water!

Wavemaster seams a better choice to be honest. Its a more ergonomic design with what appears to be more space> leads to easy PC Building and less problems.

+Looks stylish and Expensive
+Aluminium Case Absorbs heat from the inside > air from the outside absorbs the heat from the case. Simple Science at work. (I think )

You can save some money by getting a Cavalier instead of a Wavemaster....they look similar, but the Cavalier has a steel frame and aluminum front.
