I agree. Its an MSI Interceptor Nighthawk case. I'm surprised it hasn't completely fallen apart yet. God awful case. At least it was only $29.
I'll probably pick up a nice NZXT case once all this is done. I owe them that much at the very least. Not sure whats happening yet with my situation as its still early Monday morning there and they got the gear Friday but hopefully I'll be up and running again soon.

Nah...you guys are ALL wrong!! Its def the storage hes using. Looks a tad small IMHO. Drop a pair of 240GB SSDs in there....and a Intel 910 800GB...its the only way to make a system 100% stable. :P

I would say by a new NZXT Apollo 2 but they haven't MADE THEM YET

Here at work I have personally seen at least 4 machines get completely toasted by PSU's. I say at least because there may have been more but the memory is not what it used to be. The brand of all of the PSUs were Antec, and that right there is one of the reasons I got us out of using Antec PSUs.

Kudos to NZXT for the way they have been handling this. I know that I will certainly be looking into their parts more than I have in the past.

I dunno. I'm partial to cases with lots of corners. The more right angles the better. A case you could poke your eyes out on but I'd be quite happy with a switch 810, Vulcan or one of the Tempest cases.

I am curious how long ago that was and what model of PSU? Most of their new ones are very good.

I wouldn't want this Tempest as it makes my eyes bleed.
Newegg.ca - NZXT Digital Artic-Camo (Water Transfer Printing) TEMPEST EVO Mid Tower w. 2 x 120mm Front LED Fans, 2 x 140mm Top Fans, 1 x 120mm Side LED Fan & 1 x 120mm Rear Fan


Tigerdirect has the Tempest Elite in stock, all other places I've checked are Back Ordered. They also have the Vulcan as well. This thing is hardcore..

Buy the NZXT Vulcan Gaming Enthusiast mATX Computer Case at TigerDirect.ca
