    Another case question

    Well some of you know that i'm hunting for a case. I thought I was set with the asus vento noe but no good reviews bad engineering . anyway I wanted to get your guys opinion on this case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112043
    It doesn't seem bad easy access and such the only thing that i'm worried about is the cooling situation my 1+ year old water cooling isn't living up to what it was supposed to, oh well. I have a 6800 and p4 3.0 ghz proc once I get back from europe during the summer then I will most likely buy the case and heatsinks for the cpu and vid card. so pretty much around 200 bucks anyway, i'm thinking about getting zalman heatsinks with fans for the gpu and cpu I just don't know which combo would benefit me more in the cooling area, any help would be great.

    Thanks again

    The only problem I forsee with this case is the cooling system. If want cooling, check this out:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133133
    The Soprano version is a little cheaper, but made out of steel.
    Zalman is a great cooling company.

    If you don't mind somthing big, you can get teh Cooler Master Stacker. Supports up to 4 120mm fans, and also has a side fan and a fan on top for ventalation or the hot air trapped around the PSU. This case is also future proof (BTX) and it can support dual PSU's and many other features such as 11 5.25" bays, motherboard fan (optional), and a bottom vent that can be used to set teh computer on top of a floor AC vent, or to attach another fan to the bottom of the case. The case also comes with wheels so that you don't have to carry the monster as much.

    Thats the newegg link, but I bought mine cheaper at Amazon, with free shipping.

    Cheaper at Amazon because of Free Shipping.

    When I bought mine, I only paid like $150 for it.

    I didn't have to have an account when I ordered mine. But maybe its different now, and even if they do have an account, its free.

    I know it's free but you need a credit card to send them the money and I don't really trust money orders and stuff.

    Oh, so how would you pay it over newegg?

    I'm not forcing you to get the case if you don't like it. I just thinks its odd how you will come up with any excuse you can think of to NOT order from Amazon, yet you will order from Newegg, especially when both companies take the same type of payments (CC, Money order, etc..)
