I'm almost done building my first gaming rig. I'm now looking for a case to put all my components together. I came across this caseon newegg few days ago, I'm about to grab it but I had second thought and I should some opinion first before investing some dough. So what do you think? Its aluminum and it has watercooling. I know for the price you cant beat it.

I would get the Antec Nine Hundred Two, Thermaltake v9, Coolermaster CM690. Then get a watercooling system. Wouldn't be cheap tho!

give it a shot. then let us know how it turned out. worst case scenario, watercooling doesn't work and you just have a regular case.

Door on the front and top mounted PSU broke it for me. I ended up with a 690.

Yeah those bugs me aswell. Before I was thinking to get the antec 1200 it was on sale on microcenter but I hold up I dont know why. About the antec 900, does it have a good air circulation and cable management? I'm sticking a 4870 x2 and i'm gonna oc my e8500.

If you want cable management, you should go for Antec 900 Two, cause they have pre-drilled holes. Antec 900 doesn't have many holes for you you route the wires to the back. Consider a modular PSU

yeah. I rather spend the extra $$ to buy a higher end case with decent cable management than to buy a modular. Ill take a look on that antec 900 two.

If you want cooling, just get a regular case and purchase a device specific for water cooling. just my 2 cents
