Yh, i agree but i dont like this case, its basiclly just a box and id much rather not have a front door. Would you reccomend anything else? cool looking, great fans/airflow, will fit everything in it :)  Thanx allot,

alright thanks a bunch, :)  As its too big as you say and its £150 can you recommend any cases that will fit everything in but a bit cheaper? Thanx :)

-This is TheBigTrolls friend typing- I personally have a Corsair 650D and it gets REALLY dusty, with more exhaust fans than intake. The front fan filter doesn't do anything because the holes are so wide and you will need to constantly vacuum it. Watching a movie on it is horrible because you can still hear it clearly from about 25 feet while watching a movie. And it's not my computer components either, I have a Noctua running passively, a green hard drive and all of my other storage is solid state. I only bought it because it was cheap, I thought it looked pretty good and because it had an aluminium bezel.

theres a verdict.

the fractal has great airflow for a silent case. lots of room in the back and is extremely easy to build in. there is a windowed version somewhere but i dont live in the UK so yeah. but heres a link to a us site just for reference

Hey thanks for the reply :)  I'm defo not going with he 650D thanks for the heads up! :p  But i don't want to go with the fractal either as ive said before. Ive recently found this case which is looking really nice, what do you think and will it all fit still? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Cooler-Master-CM-Storm-Enforcer... Thanx :)

Check out Rosewill for cases. CM has been proven to be dishonest in competent technical reviews, so I can't recommend them no matter how good some people say their cases are. Rosewill has many similar models, typically with a few added features (like more included fans) for the same price.

I'd rather get a 500R than that hotbox 650D.

im not a fan of ASUS's Z77. ASRock has a cheaper board with more features but if you want the wireless then by all means. I second the Fractal case, really good company making quality cases.
