go with TJ08-E if you want air
go with arc mini if you want liquid
both are well designed cases

I want the arc mini... but cant find any reasonable priced anywhere

back to the gigas. One site, and boy was this EVER a needle-in-a-haystack result, says the Gigas will be available in mid march. So it looks like we have a while to wait.

hum... at low speed, the ap181's are only spinning at 700rpm each. it's audible but shouldn't be too bad. I use a FT02 and there are 3 x ap181's in my case and even with all 3 running at low speed, it's still not "annoying". I'd classify it more as "noticable" personally. I went and got a rheosmart6 to dial that speed down to 550ish RPM and it's barely noticeable in a quiet room room now. my keyboard typing/mouse clicks are much louder then the noise coming from my computer.

IF you have some very quiet 120mm fans (less then 1000 rpm fans) it's possible the ap181 is louder then a pair of 120mm fan, but not by much. people tend to forget the ap181's wasn't designed for silence. it's more designed for static pressure so it's not the quietest fan you can use. however, you do get the benefit of the much more focused airflow from the AP181 and the amount of airflow even at low setting is massive relative to the smaller fans.

dude, cool! I did suggest him SFF SUGO 02, but he said air cooler 212+ can't fit in the cube.. So not many cube case offering for huge air cooler, but require the low profile cooler.. I thinking OP should go with mATX case as tj08e, Core 1000, CM 343 instead of SFF cube case for AC 212+..
