Im deciding to buy a case for a new computer i will be building at the end of this year, when prices have come down, and DX10 cards will hopefully be out then, and be flawless. Im down to 2 different companies for cases: Lian-Li or Koolance. My limit is about 4-500 bucks on the case, and i would like watercooling to come with it. Also, if anyone can make me up a shopping list of what i should get for a conroe build, that would really refresh my memory, Im still deciding on the E6600-700 or one of the EE Conroe processors. My budget is 15-1600 bucks, and i will not be needing a soundcard, harddrive, monitor, keyboard or mouse. Thanks. :D

Lian-Li's arent cheap, neither are koolances, i want a case that has great airflow, and that will keep my parts cool.

The Tai-chi is a good case, so is that Titan one, The only coolermaster i would buy if i wanted too, would be the stacker, and im not sure if thats a full size tower case or a mid size. I do want a full. Does Danger den offer any good cases? Im still leaning towards Lian-Li, but the Tai-chi would be my 2nd choice probably.

I have a CoolerMaster Stacker 830 - it's a full size tower, It's only a tad smaller than the other stackers because it doesnt have the extra room at the bottom for an extra psu.

I highly recomend that case, it's nice, it has lots of room for watercooling and everything else. But if you really want more room then just one of the other CM stackers would be good.

Lian-Li is also a really good company. have 2 mid-sized PC61's and they are great. I just can't remember what the full sized towers are called.

The Lian-Li Memorial case (the one that looks like a snail) is just plain funny but it looks like its pretty big :wink:

Hope this helps.

The stacker is nice, almost got one myself before I decided on the Armor...

Here is a link to some custom cooled lian li cases..

And here is my own armor with my water cooling kit inside, I also added that 120mm fan, the 250mm optional fan was too big and blocked the view.
