Can anyone suggest a 4 or 6 bay case w/window that is cheaper and smaller then either the Lian Li PC65B or PC75B.

I might scale down to Antec 650 watt PS

Might even scale down to ATI video card and upgrade later

No seriously though, I have no idea about relative overclockbility, so trust gurusan over me. But yeah Ballistix (I read Crucial and just assumed it was ballistix).
Yeah...just bad luck I guess, i never went over 2.2vdimm which is what it's rated for. Lifetime warranty is a good thing
