Well I'm sold on a new case. The Thermaltake <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproductdesc.asp?DEPA=0&de..." target="_new"> Tsunami </A> is stylish, has nice features and though a bit pricy should do well for me. Anyone out there have one of these and care to comment?

i got that exact case but without the window. its really nice. hd cage is a little flimsy but functional. the front filter doesnt work all that great but its good enough. the second door to get to the filter and the 5 1/4 drives is very flimsy, takes two hands to open it cause it flexes and jams on the top drive. but other than those minor problems it is a great case.

this is my boomstick!

Cool, thanks for the info. Now I'm trying to get some info on the optional <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/Showimage.asp?image=11-133-13..." target="_new"> xp480 PSU </A> to see if its worth getting. Hard to find any info on it.

mine came with it, i dont think its an option if you get the case with no window. it is ok, i thought it was kind of cheap feeling though.

I'm sort of getting that feeling myself, I just can't find any info on it. :frown: Anywho, I will probably get another PSU since I plan on getting the windowed case (I like the 3rd fan) :smile:

I've got the windowed case and it's great. It can feel a little "flimsy" at times but overall build quality is great. The fans are a little loud though.

I'm also thinking about getting the TT <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproductdesc.asp?DEPA=0&de..." target="_new"> Armor </A>. It seems like it would have good cooling abilities, 4 fans including top fan, nice and roomy. any opinions on this from anybody?

Yep! That's a big one all right. Take a good look at the PSU space. The PSU sits on its side in this case with a HDD cage next to it. My case has a very similar configuration and you need to be careful which PSU you buy...i.e. not one with a "top" fan cause it will be against the side wall when installed. One with a bottom fan however or and end fan works great.

Full towers are great...lots of elbow room!

it looks like it can be reconfigured to add another psu too. you would need it if you had 10 burners in there or somthing. thats what it looks like its for anyway.

Well I wonder if that will cause me a problem, I was planning on getting this <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?descripti..." target="_new"> Blue Storm 400w </A> by FSP. Not sure about the direction of air flow either. What do you guys think?

If your wondering about where the fans are on that PSU send Crashman a PM. He should know just about anything about Fortron.

I think that PSU should fit...I have the 500w Blue Storm and had no trouble fitting it. When installed the fan will be next to the HDD cage and pulling air across them.
