2. CM N200

will come down to how much you value size and dis/like for mods

personally i prefer smaller cases and like the challenge + i'd like to see your creativity to tackle the issue then shove everything in a bigger case and let size solve itself like yob solution

my vote goes to the CM elite 120

Not really dislike for mods...don't get me wrong. The 120 will look awesome with 2 rads and custom grill, but the N200 will defiantly be easier to install. biggrin.gif

On a side note here's a video review from HitechLegion.

N200 is too simple and doesnt reflect the user in their creativity. i think of every PC build an art with a purpose rather then another beige office box

its like i need more power in my car so i shove an LS in it rather then tuning out the issue and and perhaps some turbo bolt ons

Would be keeping the mITX board. Was also looking to keep most of my branding (CM) the same. biggrin.gif

from the video the having an itx board in the N200 looks weird and cable management holes wont align.
