HAF932 is too busy for me I like hard lines and subtle looks and a door is must.

I agree with IamCanadian the ATCS is not worth the added cost better to go with Silverstone, just check out RJBarkers http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...9-280-sli.html thats a thing of beauty with some impressive cable management.

Ok. Grand master question. Allthough the Silverstone TJ09 (which I LOVE, don't get me wrong) looks real sexy, superb quality etc. Can it house an internal watercooling setup as well as the HAF can?

+1 Silverstone TJ09 / 10 - HAF looks like an Army "tank"!! No offense boys, great for cooling n space, but for a little more $$ you can get those and some style as well!

@rjbaker:

Look at your setup. Do you WC? Can you/do you think you can mount a triple rad IN your case, res, pump, and all? Or, would it be able to take two double rads? I saw the pics in your awesome wiring job (So good that I'd rather have that vinyl'd across a wall, than have the original Mona Lisa or something ;D), and it's kinda hard to tell.

No I don't Water Cool.......cannot answer your questions on the Rad arrangements, alltough, I do know:
1. The upper two 120 mm Exhaust Fans are built into a recess at the top of the Case, thier is a Water Cooling mounting kit available that will allow a Rad to be fit in this spot.EDIT: If you have a look at the pics that EE provided of my set-up, you can see the recess I'm talking about at the top of the Case above the MOBO and Zalman.
2. Plenty of room at the bottom of the Case for a Water pump
3. Thier are a number of pre-fabricated holes with rubber bushings for Water Cooling plumbing.

If you go to the Evga Web Site, and go to "mods", type in Silverstone TJ09 / 10 (under search), thier are some good photos of Water Cooled TJ09 / 10 set-ups. Just so you know, these Cases are very large indeed, however, they are all aluminum so they are not very heavy....I'm just waiting for my new parts to arrive so I can finally let these 280's loose on an I7 set-up :)

Good luck!

Glad you like what you saw ......it was only through some of the Posters here that I decided to pick-up this Case a few months ago....had a cheezy "teenage groovin" Smilidon Raidmax (2nd build) prior, but that thing was completely cramped, loud n poor Air Flow once the second 280 went in, also with the 2nd 280 thier was barely enough room for a 2nd HD. Anyhow, Silverstone is pricey (paid $313 + Tax), but it will likely last me for many many years.

EDIT: FYI SilverStone Technology Co., Ltd - Designing Inspiration
