I just bought a Coolermaster ATCS840 but I haven't moved my stuff into it yet.
Looks like my H20 will go into it nicely though. Enough room for a interior top mount 3x120 rad.
BIG case... very BIG!
Aluminum but at a decent price (I got mine for $195)
Beautiful, understated style.
Good dust filters (important for me)
No side window which isn't good if you want to show off your H20.

Edit: Ahhh... just noticed you made 6 new posts in a row from a new user. Attempt to get on buy/sell I guess...

I would advise against the 900 unless you plan on modding the case.

Supposed to be coming out in March 2011, Corsair's Obsedian 650D; smaller then the 700 & 800 versions, and comes with a side window, unless you wish to hide your WC set up. Though I am not a side window fan, this looks like 'my' next fave, at ~$199, and most likely a replacement for my cramped Antec 300 system.
