i would say the tj10 would have the best airflow and cooling. those cases cost alot you might want to consider sumthing like the nzxt tempest which is known for its great airflow.

Those are extremely nice, high end cases. If you want to pay that much then by all means, go ahead, they are quality.

But there are cheaper ways......something like the antec 1200

I'm going to vote for a lian li v1000/v1200. I know its not on the list. Its cheaper than those cases listed and the perforations around the whole case make it very optimal for air cooling

I say if you want to go for a high end case, then go for it. I think a nice case makes a statement. Would be nice to have the hardware to go w/ it but he can upgrade as he goes. Those cases mentioned aren't even in lian li/silverstone league.

the 300 is an awesome case, but he was speccing out all sorts of large cases so I assumed he wanted a big one.
