  1. You might want to consider a full tower case. Are you going SLI? Since I see that you list a 2 next to the EVGA GTX 260?

    The CM Storm Sniper is a midtower, but is really big case.

  2. ^ Sorry forgot to mention that the black colored version of the CM-690 is more money because it comes with a 550W PSU. These are the cases I would suggest anyhow. P182, and 690 are my favorite. :D

  4. + 1, forgot about that one lol...........
  5. Yeah, I have 2 friends that I talked into getting the CM HAF, and both love it. Lots of room, and plenty of cooling, and both say its surprisingly quiet.
  6. Hey guys,
    Thanks for all the great replies :)


    As for full towers. I planned on going with the CM 840. Benchmark reviews have temps down as low as the 932 and is barely audible(best reviews i've seen on a coolerdmaster) Also a big bonus is the mobo tray with the hole in it so i dont have to take it out when replacing the cooler.


    As far as the 260's go i will be sli
  7. I can personally testify to how quiet the HAF 932 is, I have on, ON MY DESK about 2 ft away from me and it is really quiet. I can hear it but is very hushed!! I love the cable management in this case also, it makes for a really clean install. +1 for the HAF 932!!!! The Cm 840 is really nice also, I can't testify to it, but the reviewers love it!!!
