Default Coolmaster Centurion Case

I am looking to finalize my build and I have a question about whether I should get the case with the side air duct or with window? Additionally, will the 1 80mm front fan and the one 120mm rear fan be sufficient to cool a E6600 + EVGA 8800GTS 640mb with 2 320 seagate barracudas in raid 1? I will be overclocking as well and I just want to make sure I keep this new rig nice and cool.

I think it would be better, if you go with the vented one, instead of the window. The 8800GTS puts out quite a bit of heat.

agreed with only 2 fans one being 80mm better to get the vented case

I don't know what your budget is but I just picked up an Antec 900 case and that thing is awesome... Plenty of air flow with a side window... Even has the option of putting a fan in the side window if you want but it isn't needed..

I love it thus far...

Okay that's what I was curious about. While the window case would look nice with all the pretty blue lights, keeping my system cool and working properly is way more important than looking good.

The case with the side vent and air duct?


Will this case keep my system cool enough even with overclocking? I am tyring to keep a budget of under 1250 and this case fits very nicely into my budget. I will entertain any and all options, however, I can't see spending $100+ for a mid-tower case unless there is no other option.

It should suffice, along with an aftermarket cooler.
