I would prefer the MSI cause of better temp performance and silence over the EVGA. Just see how it performance if you don't like it get another.

I doubt 160m D14 will fit inside the V343 cause the motherboard is secured in the bottom and would have to into issues with the metal floor above it. though 130m seems plausible in the V343.

If I had to pick I would go with the either the first Lian Li V354B or the second Lian li PC-600FX but its your choice on which one to pick tbh
The only issue I have with the Lian Li V354B is that it isn't a painted interior and I would have to re-rivet parts of the case if I were to paint the parts that aren't black. The only issue I have with the V600FX is the insane price. Choices... keep my budget manageable or go with the monster CTS-V of cases.

What about DaBox 100? That seems nice and small, yet will fit up to a 190mm high CPU heatsink and full size graphics. Unsure how the airflow in it is. Looking for the price but I can't find any for sale yet.

Seems like a good case has plenty of fans yet where is the air going really? :S I wouldn't be able to say but my impression says it will attract dust and would have to have negative air pressure meaning more fans blowing out than in.

It is just as expensive as the Lian Li cases, plus it is only sold directly from their website. I hate case shopping... I knew exactly what I wanted with my desktop so I had it easy. Now I may be paying just as much as my desktop for a mATX case. Or I could go cheap and upgrade some of my hardware. Personally, I love to have a clean case, easy to manage pieces of the case, light for this build, and for it to look good (including painted interior). I am very picky about this and it appears I am going to pay for that.

Hi Chunkylad, not sure if you've seen this thread, http://www.overclock.net/hardware-ne...-launch-6.html I've posted some reviews I've found for the v600f.

The case comes with one of these (in silver) http://www.lian-li.com/v2/en/product...=6&ss_index=38 so you wont have to worry about the drive colour!

I've ordered the silver version, should be here in a week or so.
