btw, you could get the Azza Helios that is on sale for $45 + MIR. Their MIR department is excellent. My check was lost/stolen and they replaced in a week. Their MIR Department is open 24hrs a day.

For the price on sale, it is on a great product coz the price of fans is probably more than the price you pay. Just a user tip, invert the sidefan so dust doesn't get inside.

Dude the 922 is worth the $100 if you can go over your budget. Great airflow and great cable management.

Haha can't argue with you there. I've got the HAF 932 for myself and I love it. So much space and airflow...

Thanks for the other suggestions too. I will check those out.

For a Budget?

Coolermaster Elite 310 Blue (you'll need to pick up a pair of 120mm's as it only comes with 1) I've done 4 Builds with this Case and each and everytime I love it.

Where did you get the front 120mm fan adaptor thingy?

NCIX.com - Buy Scythe Kama Bay Plus 5.25? System Cooler Black - SCKB-2000BK In Canada.


2 Things to note using this. Its a Pita To install Properly espically if your Case uses Tool Free at the front (CM dones't). 2 if you want to change the Fan out you need to find yourself some M3.5 long screws to make it work.

But, its worth it for another 80CFM up front.

@ST

How's the cable management for that coolermaster case? Are you using an HD adapter to mount hard drives in the 5.25" slots?

Sorta , I'm using a Zalman HDD Cooler and Mounting it right in front of the Kama Bay for Added Cooling Goodness.

Cable Management is dicy if you don't use a Modular PSU but its the challange thats fun. All in all the damn thing runs my GX2 at Full Folding Bore around 70degrees and my GTS250 at 65.

I love that case.

Hmm seems like a pretty decent case. Looks like I have another case to consider. Thanks!

Dam good example ST a pics worth a thousand words , if I'm not wrong NCIX have similar case with PSU, all true that I don't know the quality of the PSU. ( ZERO )

edit : here we go ( this is a new products for me I have never test it or touch one ) they was in stock last week
NCIX.com - Buy Coolermaster Elite 330 ATX Mid Tower Black Case 4X5.25 2X3.5 5X3.5INT Front Audio USB with 420W PSU - RC-330-KKR9 In Canada.




@ ST about the pics :
Funny to see all this equipment in a small case like that . what is the use of the 2 big cards at the bottom you should change them for ATI and sent the old one to me , my recycle Bin in the top of my garage is empty so M1(60Kppd+12Kppd) + ST(40Kppd-12Kppd) = M1(1) ST(19) with 3.0 someplace between
