Well you could get the p35c ds3r but I also took b1gapl's advice and didnt go for ddr3 and ddr2 together. Also, that was my first build so I have no experience with other cases but its like your running your rig outside with no case when using that stacker.

Sorry to resurrect a dead threat, but I had a few more questions!

So I was looking at getting a coolermaster stacker but only today did I actually measure out the size compared with my little desktop- its a beast!! I didn't realise how huge it is! Plus its prolly a huge over-spend, so I was looking at the ones above^^^.

I really like the centurion, but the cooling is a problem- too much so. The Enermax looks a good bet, but there seem to be a few problems.

So in this kind of style/size/price bracket, are there other suggestions with the primary considerations:

-COOLING! absolutely key (hence the centurion fails on its 80mm intake fan)
-Size (reasonable size, but it has to fit a thermalright 120 ultra extreme)
-I really like the dust filter idea on the centurion, so something like that would always be welcome.

I was thinking about the Antec 900, but it is a bit large, and a bit dusty I hear.

Thanks for any help!

the antec 900 is not dusty, it is a very good case, and yes the stacker is a huge overspend
