So here is the new case:



Hmmm, looks like they shipped something else:



And I open it up to see:



Of course here is what was actually in there when I opened it up.





Here it is once I have opened it up:





Man there sure are a ton of cables from the front panel:


After getting everything in and wiring all done:





So one thing I did was reverse the fan on the H50 so that it is blowing outside the case instead of a intake. I decided this because I have more airflow going into this case than the Zalman and plus then I don't have it taking in the hot air from my card.

Real Geeks have there cases ontop of the desk :)

Less dust the higher you can get the case the better. With a cat higher is defintly better.

No room for case on the desk. Under the desk is the only option.
