At least he'll see two of the same cases suggested and rethink his Xclio purchase. :barf:

that is an amazing case...also a 212 will definitely do you wonders!

EDIT: it may not be a full tower, but it has the same length as one...which is the most important thing really...full tower is based on height and with modern graphics cards that means absolutely nothing. in this case you're trading 1.64" for a much better case with more adequate cooling.

well, call me crazy but i liked the looks of the Xclio case because (1) it had a nice large side window already in it so i don't have to cut up a perfectly good case to put one in and (2) may I say HOLY FAN! you can't tell me that a 360mm fan won't move air and cool well...

EDIT: Ok, the more I stared at the CM case, and compared it to the Xclio.. i think it is growing on me... i kinda like it...

a 360mm fan can move air, but does it have sufficient space for that air to flow? if it's just blowing on your hard drives it's useless...that giant side fan may move some air, but to keep it silent it probably moves at 500 rpm...it will push the same amount as a very nice 120mm.

the big difference between the two cases though is that the cooler master is much higher build quality, supports SSD, black interior, very nice and efficient air flow, and fans that actually push a good amount of air while also giving you a place to add more fans if needed.

$16 is a good deal but that plus $11 shipping for a refurbished item is $25. You pay out $30 and you'll get a new CM 212+ with free shipping.
