I saw an 840 @ CES with a windowed side panel and one with a solid side panel.

I wish they would sell the CM Cases with and Without. Not just without and you have to pay the extra $$$ to get it.
But all in all, CM is leading the way with Case design as it stands.
Another case I can't afford, but very nice.

If this was a dual compartment this would be my dream case, as it stands the new corsair slightly beats it.

I thought I should point out that you can not mount a 220mm rad in the place of the 2 spare fans on the rear side of the Harddrive area. The fan mounts are too low in the case, and with a Radiator the bottom of the RAD hangs too low and bottoms out on the bottom of the case. Its probably about 1 CM too low. I'll post some pics of my build using a Tripple Rad that I managed to get in there with some forward thinking ;)

Is there any other cases on the market that are comparable features wise (other then the removable Mobo) and looks wise but cheaper? I'm really not satisfied with the 900 for cable management (I like looking at my computer as much as I use it). 300 bones for a case, and another 50 for a window is really not something I need to spend my money on.

The HAF932 Comes to Mind for those options.

Problem with the HAF, is the looks and dust.

Thanks for the reply.

Trust me this case is worth every penny.... Comparable to my old Silverstone TJ09 in terms of fit and finish, and build quality. Very happy with it so far.

Do you have any pictures I can see of your build? Do you have the window?
