Cooler Master Centurion 5

I have that case and it has great air flow. I do not know how big of heatskin you are looking at but I have a Zalman 7700Cu on my CPU.

Silverstone is a bit bland looking IMO. Antec Nine Hundred is my #1 case right now. Good value, and it comes with a 200mm fan! :o

Go with the Silverstone.
TT Armor deserves an honorable mention, as does the CMStacker.

The big Gigabyte all aluminum case is great. Super quiet and no flimsy plastic door. Heavy/thick aluminum door. Great cooling and lots of room!

One thing I've realized after spending days in this forum... case suggestions threads are usually pointless since you have fanactics of every kind of case. It's like an AMD/Intel fanboy war except its with 13 different sides instead of 2 (but on a less intense level).

Cases are usually a matter of opinion most times, since a lot of people base cases off looks. Yes, cooling is important, but you could just get a huge cardboard box with a 12 inch fan cooling everything (not that I do that <.<)

Anyways, I'll give you a suggestion, NZXT Zero... but like I said, I doubt anything will come from this. Always better to do your own research... go on Newegg, start slimming down the categories, and then browse through the cases. Google reviews for some of the cases you like, and then decide...
