One of the newer gen CM Stacker 830s would be sweet. I've got an 830 SE which is the new 3rd gen of these, and is aluminum for better heat dissapation. Look for the KNN3 or KSS3 for black or silver respectively. I can't wait to move my parts over to it (in my sig). That's why I ordered a Tuniq Tower 120, 8 Apevia blue 120mms, and some as5 today. I'm going to have one awesome winter break.

Lol that's one way to roll But look at it this way. Sooner or later, you'll have that striker, 2nd GTX, and Stacker. You just can't have it all or once. I could have had a G92 GTS right about now, but I chose to solve my cooling issues first. You just need to figure out what's most important first.
