Deciding on a Case
 
My old case won't work for the setup I want especially for overclocking. So I have decided it is between these two cases.

Thermaltake Swing VB6000BWS - $85.68

Thermaltake Matrix - $95.04

Stock air cooling on both units would be about the same, if youre planning on overclocking on Air then the matrix is the way to go but of its all mesh grill front. But for esthetics/watercooling id say go with the Swing. The Swing has the same stock air cooling (2 x 120mm) but doesnt have the TT ugly green/purple quick toolless system (so it would look awsome in the windowed version to show off the WC setup without distracting ugliness). So I'd say go Swing for Water OC'ing and Martix for Air OC. Hope it helps you decide! :biggrin:

Edit:
PS: My old system has the Tsunami case from TT. Basically very similar to the Swing in design AND it has the same piano black finish which looks Amazing (when kept clean, hehe)

Since I will be do aircooling it will looks like the Matrix.

I looked at the Thermaltake site and for the Matrix the tooless stuff looks grey.

I don't know either case, but I like the look of the matrix better

I have the Thermaltake Armor and the first mod was to rip out the PCI slot tooless crud = screwing in the PCI has worked well in the past and still does today :p

I prefer the look of the Matrix as well.

Yea, even though I would never buy either due to looks and small size the Matrix does look better than the swing.

Toolless pci brackets on Tt are clunky and don't work well with dual slot cards....I took mine out as well:thumb: Much better.
