Well, Lian-Li do have great cases with 120MM fans, BUT you're going to spend over $150 on a case with a decent amount of 120MM fans (2 to 3), I personally think that they need more 120MM fan slots.

But, I think you should check this case out:

My friend has the LanBoy... The fans are load, but that is just a matter of changing them out. I really like how Antec made the Harddrives facing perpendicular to the case, that is easy in easy out and it probably gives more room for the video card. The price isn't bad either.

My questions:

Will this support a powersupply with a fan on tops? Like the Sunbeam NUUO?
Is this a large case?

If anyone has this case, can I get some pictures of it?

The lanboy is a case for lan parties, hence its name. For the money, you can do better. Sure, it may have 2 120mm fans, but the case itself is tiny. If you want the king of cases, look at this:

This thing is huge! you could fit a lot of WC stuff in there.

And it is $320.... Case's have no perfermance gain, so I would rather not put that kind of money into a case. About $150 is the max...

Then the Gigabyt aurora or the Lian-Li PC7 (the new version that came out only a little while back). Those should be good.

Which, the Lian-Li? They all look rather small on the website, but they tend to be decently sized in person.

I knew that, but the Lian Li seem to be either really small, or really expensive.

I am pretty much down to

Antec P180
Gigabyte Aurara
Lian Li something or other...
