I having a lot of trouble choosing a new case. I have the following components:
a core i7 920 @ 3.5Ghz
Noctua 120mm SE2 (NH-U12P SE2)
12 GB (3x4GB) Kingston DDR3 1600 HyperX Ram
Gigabyte UD5 (LGA1366, ATX)
PC Power and Cooling 910W Silencer
WD Caviar Black 1TB (Storage)
Samsung Spinpoint F4 (Boot Drive)
XFX ATi HD 5870 (2 in CrossFire X)
Sony Optiarc DVD Burner
Pioneer BD Combo
I have had terrible luck w/ coolermaster I am currently typing this with these parts in a Cooler Master Cosmos 1000 Case, the power button/Front IO Panel has died, I have to use the power button on my mobo.
I REALLY like the Silverstone Raven, but im not sure i want to spend that much on another case bc of how the Cosmos turned out.... (I did contact coolermaster for warranty and they were supposed to send me a new io panel but its been 2 months and im tired of waiting)
I was thinking Silverstone Kublai, but i have read a lot of negitive reviews about power buttons with that model....
I could live with the looks of the LIAN LI PC-9F but im not sure my video cards would fit/be able to breath if i purchased it... well im just getting frustrated lol
The Thermaltake Spedo is great, but the only thing I don't like is it doesn't have the cutout behind the processor. Though, I do like all the room and the amount of fans I can get into this thing. One thing that really works out well is the 2 120mm exhaust fan spots at the top of the back of the case:
