Default Please tell me if this is a good idea...

How safe is this for cd's?

Airflow?

Can anyone tell me if this is a good case? Looks pretty sweet imo.

Would my current rig fit in it nicely? looks like for a mid it has some decent room.

EDIT: Reviews say it is small.. Hmm.

I do not like it. Only one dvd drive and room for only 2 hard drives. Not nearly enough in my book. All of my computers have 2 dvd drives and at least 2 hard drives.

Plus I do not like the overall looks of it. It also looks like a wire management nightmare to me.

I love the looks :P I do not like the 1 dvd drive and 2 hdd drive though... in other words good concept. Needs revision.

What do you guys think of this

I like it better. Not a big fan of the removable (I would just leave it off and then it would look a bit funky.) front but way more flexible than the other case.

Here is a cooler master I like. Remember cases are a personal preference. As long as they have good airflow.

I like Lian Li (except for the heft price tags). This seems like it would be easy to mod for lan parties and still have amazing air flow.
