I am into the old school cases, nice and simple on the outside but loaded on the inside. Everyone seems to go with the flashy stuff now.

I like that CM stacker out the ones you have there.

Otherwise there is this, although it only has one exhaust fan. It is very quiet like the Centurion 5 and very solid. This is one of the best cases ever made IMHO...it has flip down down for your drives so you can put any color dvd drives in there

I recommend the Thermaltake Armor. It is what I opted for and I love it.

It is the same case as the Kandalf and is cheaper. Also the thing I like better than the Kandalf is you don't have to open the front all the way to get max airflow. It is also setup for watercooling.

I provided both links.

Yeah, that's a good case, Trotter.

Go for that one, I've seen some reviews sayings that is very huge and spacious.

Ive seen the P180, honestly, it looks really cheap (esp the front door). Ive also heard/read some complaints about it. Its also overpriced IMO.....Honestly the P160 is a much nicer case. Try to look at one up close if you can Trotter.

The P180 is very nice. I own it. It's awesome... It's not cheap at all.
It's certainly not a gamer case. It's a great mediacenter or workstation case. IT'S DEAD QUIET... It is extremely heavy...

I obviously like the TT shark case, but need to mod it to my liking...
