Talking Thoughts on the Thermaltake Kandalf

I'm looking to buy a new case and after looking around i saw the Thermaltake Kandalf
It looks like a great case and i'm thinking of buying it for my new build
That will have a 8800 GTX in it.
so any suggestions or thoughts would be much appreciated.THNX :laughing:

The Armor would be a nice cheaper alternative.

Are you talking about the Kandalf with the liquid cooling system? If so I know that thermaltake liquid cooling isn't the greatest in terms of quality.

Thermaltake watercooling kits, aren't high quality in general, I believe.
