Just stating my opinion and my solution!

Bottom line, If you want to go watercooling get the Armor, If you are sticking with air AND want it to be quiet from the factory I wouldnt do any of them, I would do the Antec Nine Hundred. The better airflow in my Nine Hundred dropped my 7950GT 7c and my CPU 5c. Thats a HUGE gain just by switching cases.

I just got an Armor and it's pretty spacious. Lots of room to work, lots of expandability, and great airflow.

Armor is HUGE, and the airflow is amazing cause you can jam 120mm fans everywhere, plus the side 250mm fan you can buy is pretty sweet.

Tsunami = mid tower. So let's just not talk about that and skip ahead to the big boys.

It's a close call between the Armor, Shark & Kadalf. They're all full towers, all look great, and all have plenty of room. The Armor & Kadalf probably have more air flow due to the front bays and that extra rear fan. The Shark has slide out Motherboard & HDD trays (that the other don't have) which IMO is great in case your house ever burns down and you need like 5 seconds to pull out your HDDs. You can't really go wrong with either of the 3 full towers.

i know you are, i don't want to start an argue with that cause you now we both give good info.

just saying (like you are JUST saying) the Tsunami is the best looking case there is (imo, forgot that people have different taste )

the armor is the BEST cooling in air.... but i think he also want's a nice looking rig.

@ air cooling from 1 to 3:

1 - Armor
2 - Shark
3 - Tsunami Dream

Look + Concept:

1 - Tsunami Dream
2 - Shark
3 - Armor

Look + space:

1 - Shark
2- Armor
3 - Tsunami Dream

don't forget the TD has openings in the aluminum 2,5 mm door so it's mostly better then most meduim cases

Just before you go looking at Kandalf and Armor... I just bought and Tt Armor for a new DFi Build. The Kandalf and the Armor are the same case, with different front doors.

Just know that the Kandalf is the "HTPC" case... with those fully closing doors on the front and that blue circle, where the armor doors do not impede airflow as they leave a gap in the center. My Kandalf is watercooled, and with 2 120mm and 2 80mm fans, all other components are quite "confortable".
