The S1283 was on sale at NCIX two weeks ago for $37.99 when I bought it. Now it's going for $39.99.

Yes, the Thermalright bolt-thru kit will fit the Vendetta 2. All it is is a backplate and 4 spring loaded bolts. What you need to do is remove the push-pins from the mounting hardware that comes with the Vendetta 2 and use them with the backplate and bolts. Since you need to install the backplate, you will have to remove the MB from the case (unless you're lucky enough to have an access hole at the back of the MB tray).

As for the case (i already bought Antec 900) i'm worrying about the dust (have carpet at home), i read everywhere the 900 is a real dust magnet. and there is also the poor cable management and since i do not have a modulal psu it will be a mess. (i have a Corsair 750tx).

I do not want to see all my brand new hardware really dusty!

I'm thinking of selling my brand new 900 and get something better for cable management
and with dust filter that are easy to remove and clean. (Antec 1200 filters are pain to remove)

Any suggestion of good case with good cooling, good cable management and dust filters?
(ideally under 200$).

Hmm, you could probably buy dust filters, but if you want a new case, then the CM 690 comes to mind, as well as the Antec P182 I think.

Ghetto solution: Cut-up a Swiffer pad :D

P182 is a good alternative, but i think i will sell and antec 900 and get the new Antec 900 V2. which is essentially the same except it now have Dust filters, Interior painted in Black and be able to pass cable behind motherboard for cable management...

It's about exactly the same as antec 1200 just a little smaller!

Yeah and a little bit fuglier. I'd buy the P182 over the 900V2 any day of the week! I'm a bit of an aesthetics nazi if you know what I mean.

There is still the Antec 300 (can get this one very cheap). it do have filters but i think it do not have cable management.

And i do not know if the cooling of the 300 will be enought.

The P182's cooling is only slightly less than that of the 900. I believe it has a 120mm on the top, 120mm in the back, and a 120mm on the side, as well as the option to add more on the front panel if needed. Yes, it has dust filters, and Yes, they are easy to remove. Just pull them out, wash, dry, slide back in.

The 300 is a small version of the 900. This means (unfortunately) Far less cooling, and less cable management then the original 900 (NOT the V2) had. The case itself is a tad small, so if you don't fill every possible place to put a fan with a fan (and then some), it will become a little "hot box" as I like to call it.

My System Specs

Default

The 300 comes with a 140mm on the top. a 120mm on the back and a 120mm in the front. There is spots to add a second 120mm on the front and another 120mm on the side. If you add the two extra 120`s it has very good cooling, my quad stays below 55* running at 3.19GHz at full Folding load. My GPU stays below 60* with the shaders cranked while Folding full time. Unfortunately, like ImmaPC said, cable management is not that great, but is doable. It is a nice little case though, better looking than the 900 IMO...
