I have a CoolerMaster Wave Master

Pic doesn't do it justice.

It also comes with a window:


Their Ammo case is pretty sharp:


But the Praetorian cases are really nice as well:

thanks alot guys, I probably would have regretted that case. The coolermasters look great, but they're just a little outside my price range. The tsunami dream falls right in the range however, I think I'll go with that in black.

thanks again

My son and I are currently looking for a case also.

I have looked alot the last couple weeks, and i think we have narrowed it down to 2 cases.

This seems to be a sweet case with awsome cooling, and you can add a 120mm fan in the rear for just a few bucks. Making this a great cooling case for under $100....with 2 120mm fans

Also i think you can get this case at radioshack.com for around $70 shipped! They have free shipping on anything over $50

The cooler master is great, but its very heavy and made of SECC Steel which doesn't transfer heat as good as aluminum made cases [which are basicly... huge heatsinks lol]

But I do like it anyway, my friend has all sort of coolermaster Cases and they all got pretty good cooling for a SECC made cases.

I agree with aluminum being better....but is is very hard to find an aluminum case with two 120mm case fans for under $100

The 532 is a nice case; not sure about the quiet aspect, but it has good cooling and looks pretty nifty, too.

2 120mm in the back or just 1 120mm in the back and 1 120mm in the front :classic:

There seems to be a lot with the second choice.

For under $100, go with the mystique. It has two 120mm fans, one in the front and one in the back.

Thanks PZEROFGH......this one passed us by.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133019

Now it is between the above case and this case.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133019

Which of the two cases do you think is the best deal....and i would be putting in a 120mm fan in the rear as an exhaust if i get the coolermaster.
