Default Darnit...

the thermaltake armor w/25cm side fan can no longer fit the tuniq tower with the 10'' fan installed(arghhh!!)....so i'm going to need a new case that can give me maximum overclock ability and is a big enough tower (able to hold 2900pro/8800gt and tuniq) under $150
here is what i was thinking
Newegg.com - NZXT Zero Black/Silver Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail
Newegg.com - XCLIO A380PLUS-BK Fully Black High Gloss Finish 1.0mm SECC/ ABS ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GZ-FA2CA-AJB Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail


this and the 8800gt/2900 pro decision will be probably the last before i build in beginning of november

cases don't affect overclocking ability.. unless you count airflow and a lot of fans.. but that doesn't affect it, just your temperatures...

but... take the NZXT Zero... great case especially with that rebate

they do if you can't physically fit the cooler in, my case actually bends the top couple of fins for my zalman cooler

yessum but it could be something to with it being a htpc case so fitting an E6600 and 8800gts is slightly perverse especially once overclocked
