Wicked, I'll probably use some the Noctua P12's but it's pretty close between those and the Yate Loons due to the pricing...

If I get WCing I'll definitely go with the Yate Loon's due to their consistently exceptional performance on both the case and rads.

Sorry for the double-post, but I got a really quick and sorta important question. Does this thing have any space for an internal triple rad (even if I have to mod it a bit), or do I have to mount a triple rad externally, hands down?

The reason i ask is because I've been SERIOUSLY considering WCing for the last little bit, and I've fallen for triple rads for the awesome temp results they give, or at least that's what I hear from countless sites I've perused using Google.

For Fans, I agree with Ena on the Yates.
They are, very good at what they do.

Deltas or Panflos are the ultimate in static pressure, but you would need a FAn controller for sure on those. 50-60dBa lol.

Good Luck,
ST

Get the HAF bud. I have it fore wife's pc and hard drive never goes above 27, 4850 1gb idles at 31 and 42 during F@H, cpu temps at 27 during folding and 19 at idle.

The best air cooling case and from what I hear xcellent for WC.

So the HAF932 has great air cooling obviously, and it is flexible should I decide to go watercooled soon? From those temps, I'm guessing you WC on it? XD How is that going for ya?

...Too bad, 'tis a wee bit "fugly"

But I don't want to sacrifice functionality to form. Meh, I think I may as well go with the HAF932 no matter how bad it looks.

$125 more for the same case with a different exterior?

The ATCS is way too much for what you get. For $300+ you could get a LL or Silverstone, either of whos build quality is far superior to CM. If it was $200, it would be a nice case but certainly not for $300.
