I've always purchased mid-towers in the past when I built myself a new computer but now that I have the BFG 8800gtx 756mb OC video card, suddenly cooling became a huge issue. I currently have a Cooler Master Centurion 5 case with a cooler master 650w ps (COOLMAX CW-650T EPS12V 650W Aluminum ATX v2.01). I'm looking for a case that has all the fans setup and ready to go, the price of cases has always put me off a bit so now that I need a big case with good air flow I'm willing to spend I suppose $200 on a good case. Thanks for your suggestions!
From experience, the antec 900 has a ton of room and all the fans you need.
BUT, if you have hopes of doing a nice "clean" install of all your hardware, and then wiring it up, forget it. All the wires are too short to be hidden out of the way, and in one instance, too dam short to reach where it was supposed to. They should be 6" longer.
Don't know what they were thinking. If you make a case that big, you need to use something other than "standard wiring" for it.
Well I'm still kinda leaning towards the coolermaster stacker case. The BTX option is appeasing for down the road and the crossflow fan looks nice. Does top venting on a computer case mess up a negative airflow configuration?
