I noticed this case up on newegg earlier today and I'm wondering what's the difference between the PC60PlusII non-W.

I "think" the W version has a side panel window, also according to the specs it's veeery slightly smaller...

19.3"x17.8"x8.3" for the non-W
19.3"x17.7"x8.3" for the W

The W is also a little cheaper.

Can anyone fill me in on any other differences please. I was about to order the PC60 non-W until I saw the new one on newegg.

Thanks!

Edit:
Sorry I meant to provide links for both cases, here they are:

The windowed version has the window. That's the only difference. I just ordered the windowed case and parts for my new build last night.

I bought the windowed version in December...
Excellent case and cooling design, with well engineered modular drive cage and mobo tray.
I have 5 hard drives installed in the removable drive cage, and added a floating 120mm internal fan to circulate air and compliment cases well designed other 3 fans plus the blower fan... (total of 5 now) I added the floater since I am running lower RPM quiet fans for silence, and preferred a bit more circulation.
Using an Opteron 175 @ 2.64GHz on an Asus A8R32-MVP mobo... I also have a Bigwater 745, with the large 12v pump and reservoir mounted on top of the drive cage, squeezed in next to my HiS X1800XT.
Also have a TV Wonder Elite tuner card, 4x512MB, 2 gigs Corsair XPS expert RAM, the Lian Li temp/fan control, a USB L.I.S. 2 fan/hardware control monitor LCD in 5.5" bay, a Plextor 716AL DVD Burner and an Antec TruePower2 550watt PSU...

Kickin'. I'm holding off on any extreme cooling (H20, phase change, etc.) until I'm out of college and in my own place - then the tower stays where it is...:wink:

Sweet, I'm glad to hear it! I'm definitely going to go ahead with this case then.

Since I'm ordering it from newegg should I go ahead and buy some replacement case fans for it as well? I really don't care for flashy LED's, I just want dependable fans that have variable rpm's. I was looking at the ZALMAN ZM-F1 80mm and the ZALMAN ZM - F3 120mm

It seemed like most case fans were about the same specs, except these two Zalmans' don't have 3/4 pin connectors, just 3 pin I think. Not sure if that's going to be a problem with my Asus M2N-SLI motherboard or not.

Anyway thanks for all the help! It's greatly appreciated.
