Default Ya i am afraid of cooling and noise

Quality is a big thing to me too, both 1 and 2 seem to be outstanding quality (mybe 2 has a stronger build and is more simple to use), but is allot of 80M fans better than two 180M fans?

Anyone have a raidmax, Coolmasters seem to be people's fave. but i have seen some reviews that say some coolmasters are cheap.

I'd go for Thermaltake Silver Gaming Tower XaserV Series WinGo Full-Tower Case, it will be the next case I buy.

ThermalTake build strong, reliable and well thought out cases with good cooling. Don't go the the 3rd... its steel and its an ugly colour.

Definently the Thermaltake Silver Gaming Tower XaserV Series WinGo Full-Tower Case. It is a great lookin case. Only thing is you will need to buy a power supply for it.

I like the second one as well. BUT I chose the Aerocool JetMaster JR-BS Black ATX Mid-Tower Case with Clear Side, Front USB and Firewire Ports:

This case is roomy and has a 120mm fan to cool your HDDs! It looks much better in real life as well. Excellent case.
