good case, but I might suggest a cooler master mid tower, cause shipping is going to cost you as well.

the CM 690? it's a standard airflow setup... 1 maybe, 2 front fans pulling in air for HHD's etc... a side fan pulling air in for CPU, and a rear fan to push the hot air out.

Not a bad case... just not my style, but if you can get it cheap, go for it.

Standard airflow setup?

Just bought myself one the other day and its not no normal setup.

1 x 120mm front (in)
1 x 120mm back (out)
2 x 120 or 140mm side (in)
2 x 120 or 140mm top (out)

^^ really??? The one I found on the egg only had 1 side, 1 front, and 1 rear with the ability to have more... but either way, then that is not a normal setup... so I guess you'll have to check it out if/once you get it

No worries... I should have said "typical" setup instead of standard...

I would assume form what you have posted...

front - intake
rear - exhaust
side - intake (one just a vent port)
bottom - intake (at least a vent for PSU fan to mount fan down)
top - exhaust

that seems to make sense to me...
