Nobody in the "overclocking forums" could help me, and it seems people in this forum are more prone to sharing advice =)

In terms of quality, ease of installation (components, mobo, etc).

Does the 6-fan aluminum seem "too good to be true"?
6 fans? AND Aluminum stealth black for only 150 bucks?

The Lian Li is nice too. Which one do you people recommend? I might be doing some light overclocking (video/cpu), but nothing the Lian-li can't handle (I think).

Thnx!

Does oc'ing a 2.0A to 2.7 seem unreasonable? I know they've done a 1.8A to 2.4 and have it perfectly stable.

With air-cooling, yes it is unreasonable. 2.2GHz and lower Northwoods top out at about 2.5GHz with air cooling, regardless of their stock speed.

So which case do you think is better? =)

Even if I dont' go CPU overclocking, I will do some Video oc'ing.

You think I should get the case w/o the side blow holes and install an AGP cooling PCI dual fan card or go for the case with the side fan but no dual card cooler? Which would be better? Thnx =)

I have no information on cases with regards to Video Card overclocking. I would recommend a water-cooling system with copper blocks for the video card, processor, MCH, and memory.
