Yeah, the soprano has the PSU with it too, the Tsunami does not come with a PSU so keep that in mind

Get the Temjin 6 by Silverstone. I could not be more satisfied with it. It has a windtunnel to create sections for air cooling. To be honest, I think it may be one of the most reliable and long lasting cases out there. Sure you pay some good money, but I garauntee that you will not only be satisfied with the quality but the look.

Silverstone Temjin 6 w/ Wind Tunnel $141


And are you sure that your Temjin 5 can't hold SATA drives? I find that really hard to believe. Be sure to check again because I doubt a Silverstone case like that wouldn't have slots for a very popular drive type.

I forget the user name of the guy, but he knows a lot about pcs. Hes on this forum, his email message >



''From a review of the case

Much to my chagrin, the harddrives only go in one way and that one way
made it impossible to use conventional SATA adapters. As you can see
from this picture, use of SATA drives and normal cables makes it
impossible to close the case. Given that most things on the market do
NOT come with 90 degree SATA connectors, the onus lies on Silverstone
to ensure that all types of drives work without having to specially
buy cables (that or they should include 5 of them).

Editor's Note - We discussed this issue with SilverStone, and they are
aware of the problem. They are working on a new revision of drive
rails that will not have this problem. Their plan for the time being
is to offer them from their branch office by request for those who
bought the case without the newer rails. They are probably not going
to distribute them to resellers, so you are going to need to contact
SilverStone directly if you need the new rails.''


I took the Thermaltake Tsunami now, its a nice case aswell..
