This one: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811146051

It's very quiet. Lots of space too. The cable management on the back side is a little tight, but still manageable. A lot of people complained about bad airflow, but to start with I went ahead and filled the second 120mm slot in the top compartment, so it has a push/pull though it, and the same with the two 80mm and 120mm in the bottom, along with a big 140mm fan in my power supply. Everything is staying nice and cool. (or at least as cool as it can be on stock coolers lol)

It feels very sturdy for the most part as well, with a nice thick chassis, and an aluminum/plastic front bezel.

Nice. This is the one I have at work http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811129066.
Was gonna build a new PC @ home but I'd rather just keep saving for a house I think

Nope. I can't even tell it's on until the GPU fans are over 50%. The inside is insulated and all the fans are on rubber grommets.

Sexy.

Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

Indeed. Everything is staying a lot cooler now too. Airflow ftw.

Very good. I like that case. But I'm going for a Cooler Master HAF-X.

The HAF-X is a very nice case, I've messed with one at Fry's before. I'm a fan of simplicity though.

Fair enough. I have a Corsair TX 750 as my PSU, and there is simply loads of wires. And there's just not enough space for them all in my case. You'll see it in my other thread.

As someone who just picked up a Corsaid power supple, I understand. :lol: That's part of why I got this one. The cable management isn't as good as it is on the HAF-X, but it's still good enough for my purposes.
