I have a Cooler Master Storm Sniper and I absolutely love it. I would recommend it to you cause it's a really tough case and the toolless design is famous and brilliant. I have three hard drives in it and they NEVER hit above 30C.

man, if you need cheap, real cheap, antec 300 is your best bet for around $50-60. nzxt beta is another choice in that price range but i think it looks fugly.

if you can, go for the 690 and as everybody else is saying, if you got enough, the HAF. better question is if your spending so much on 3 gpus, why cheap out on the case?

(On a side note, I find how people are so worried about hard drive temps pretty funny. Got a 7200.10 320gb that doesn't want to run at anything below 45 and has been fine. Max operating temps for hard drives is usually 50-60 depending on type/model. And for those haters who don't like high hdd temps, that 7200.10 usually runs at 55 after 24hrs use and has been at that temp for .....2 years and still working great. If it dies in 3 years, so be it *knock on wood* damn things are cheap and going to much cheaper in the future. sry bit offtopic /rant)

Thermaltake Black Armor, or NZXT Zero 2.
Those would be my suggestions.

The Armor has a nice big fan over the GPU's or the Zero has Mounting points for 4 120's at the side as well.

My thoughts,

Seems like the only answer to any case related question on HWC is the vomitous HAF...

If money Wasn't a Concern,

Thermaltake Xaser VI. Most expansion Bays Ever lol. And enough Hard points for 7 140mm Fans to bring you plenty of fresh air.

I recommend the Thermaltake Element G. It has better airflow then the have and looks nicer too. Also has SSD holder.

(IMHO)

:D

I would say one thing, I know some cases are over your budget.. I really suggest and hope you increase your budget because a tri-sli setup needs a case with very good airflow, those cards pump serious heat and even though they blow hot air out.. the cards get hot!!.. and a case like a CM690 might fit a dual sli but not a tri sli for sure..

You need a big case like an Antec 1200, HAF 932, Gigabyte Aurora 570 case.. something in those lines, tall, handsome, well built and functional and good airflow.. It's your choice to make.. Agreeable that video cards can take upto 100C (or whatever it is) temps, but imagine running that day and night.. think about it, who knows your card might not last as long as you would like..

Sorry to make it awfully long, but I had to say something, I did.. or just a suggestion, if you want to listen, well and good, I appreciate, if not.. no worries, we're still here to help you!! :)
