You aren't the first person, and will hopefully not be last person to call me "Nuts", "Insane", "Crazy" or "Stupid". Thank you!

Rejoice!
Thanks to my friends purchasing of many of my parts, as well as some trades, I'll soon be getting his HAF922 for Stygian, en lieu or the "restrictive" Sugo-03 that I've been using. Also, since I only have one Freezone elite pending, I might as well use the other one for cooling for the time being (or at least until it sells).

So for all ye nay-sayers that were saying "poo poo" about the restrictive nature of the old Stygian, say hell (soon) to the New Stygian .

Best of all, I haven't paid anything for the switch (thanks to my friend + trades) but, in fact, have made some money . Expect a few new build pics in the coming days of the reworked Stygian build.

I love my HAF 922... given unlimited funds I would have bought another case, but for the money, I think it is a great case. Ample room to work in and I do like the styling of the case. I think you will be very pleased!

I do indeed hope so, although I didn't really notice the size of the case when my friend proposed to trade it to me for parts for his HTPC build. So much for being a "portable" powerhouse. I'll just have to live with it being highly overclockable with good airflow

Ya, it is pretty large! I have a picture of it beside my old Antec 900 in my worklog. Not a LAN party case by any means! It does have excellent airflow. I am thinking of pulling the large top fan and putting it on the side and slamming 2 120s up top for venting. Not sure yet, but at least there are lots of choices with the case.
