Default New Case

i'm thinking about getting the coolermaster praetorian as a new case

what do you guys reckon?

if you have better suggestions, bear in mind that i dont want a door for the 5inch bays, as i have fan controllers

That is a nice case, Falcon NW uses it for good, but inexpensive alternatives. I would go for it if i were you.

I like that case, it's very clean looking. I'd say go for it.

theere are cheaper alternatives to the praetorain.. the Kingwin KT-424 Looks exactly alike without the front ports.. And I'm sure you can get it cheaper than $100 if you shop around.
