Is it just me or does that Xclio case look like a pain for cable management?

it's a full tower, so there's a lot of room for them all. plus, it changes colors :D  , but it has $20 shipping :(  , so I think i'll just go with this case- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

because that combo deal mjmjpfaff recommended has a mid tower :( 

Edit: or mabye i'll stay with this one- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... because it looks cooler?

just because its full tower does not mean it has good cable management. Even the case in that last link has no holes cut inside the case to run and hide wires which will reduce the airflow.

Maybe I'm wrong...but don't think so

Go with the case he posted in the combo if anything

Like that above poster mentioned...stick with the CM case. Those XCLIO aren't any case you will ever see recommended on here.
