i like it. the one thing i REALLY like is the slot for a fan on the bottom of the case. Now i can blow air directly into my vid card hsf.

eh 170 for a case, 200 for a case. I think they are fairly close

Gigabyte Aurora is a decent case, and big enough for future water cooling . Give Aspire a PM he has that case

i got this:

http://www.crazypc.com/products/81328S.html

with a 120mm blowhole on top, for maybe water cooling later pzero . maybe i could put a small rad up there. i like it, since i like to go to LANs a lot, i'd want a mid tower.

i have that case, and i agree that it does, indeed, have 6 fans and looks pretty cool. but the case is SUPER loud, imo. and my front 2 fans pooped out on me. also my pwr and hdd LEDs dont work. It was good while it lasted, though.

i guess cases are mostly opinion.. :-/ i'll see how my new one works and i'll let yall know. i also got some more cable sleeving (with heatshrink this time insetad of electrical tape which does not work at all. i like the overall look of the case and i might get some silver bezels to make the case look even cleaner
