Talking Torn between two cases

AeroCool ExtremEngine 3T
http://www.newegg.com/product/Produc...+3T+-+BBA++UPC

&

Thermaltake XASER
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133154

Both have good airflow, LEDs, lots of room & are **** sexy

So if you can really find anything bad about these two cases now is your time to get off that raging cynical human angst you've been building up & unleash!

Even though I own a Kandalf (like the Armor, but has huge doors) I would go for the AeroCool due to that 25cm!!!! fan.

I can't say anything bad about my case, built very well, has loads of holes to route cables to hidden slots.

I was looking at the Kandalf myself but it's just a tab bit too pricey for me right now I was originally wanting a TT Shark but between my g/f & I we have 6 cats (I had 2 she had 4 then we moved in together lol) so I was worried about lent issues with the open side panel. **** these wretched cats! lol

eww... there both fugly...

but if I was forced to pick one... I'd go with the first... (kind of looks like a sub woffer box)

oh well... I chose the xaser thing..., but I meant the aerocool one...

Although I have fine taste, I am curious what case do you reccommend then?

I have the Aerocool Jetmaster Jr and its okay. The wires are loosely connected to LEDS and fans and a couple came undone so I had to take it back twice to have it replaced. My next build will probably use a Thermaltake or the Gigabyte Aurora: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811233003

The Aerocool looks like a subwoofer or something... not that there's anything wrong with that, but i like the thermaltake better


didnt notice someone said the same thing about the subwoofer above ^^
