Greetings,

After moving I need a new case, the V9 Black Edition by TT I have has seen better days. It's been bent up here and there and it is time for a upgrade. I would like to keep it as small as possible with out sacrificing air flow. My specs are as follows:

965BE w/ Mega shadow
ATI 5850 (Which I may up grade at some point in the next 6mnths)
8gb Mushkin 1600 ram. PN/997043
Asus xonar essence stx
Antec New 550
2x Raptor 300's in RAID0
Lamptron FC2 (it causes fans to whine some and want to upgrade this too)
1- 120mm front, 1- 190mm fan top, 1-120mm rear fan, and 1 -120mm fan on my CPU cooler


So my objective is as I stated to keep it as small and cool as I can, if I could reduce my fan noise that would be great too. I would also like to keep the price under $140, the lower the better. The cases I have listed I like the look and reviews I have been reading for the last couple of days. That is why I am asking because after reading thousands of reviews I can find good and bad in all of them.

But if you feel a bigger case would sit me better let me know, and why you think so please!

Maybe you know a better small case, vote other and let me know which one and why please!

Oh if you know a better fan controller or a case with one, let me know about it. Like I stated this one causes a whine

I know there are many posts like this one, but this one is mine lol. I figured more people may have experience with these cases or with other cases since the latest post like this one where posted. So maybe some thing new may come out. Let me know what you think of what case so I can make a better purchase.

Wish I could give every one who reads this rep, but to do that I would need to know who did lol.

Thank you very much

I bought a corsair c70 case a few months ago. The case is nice and roomy,will fit the big gpus, nice cable management, and it has dust filters. I really can't say enough about the case.
Thunderstruck!
