Need help choosing aluminum windowed full tower case with good ventilation and space! - Page 5

I agree, but that's easy to mod (the 120mm fan). Gonna drill holes through the cage too, for maximum cooling

I don't have any tools to mod or drill into the case. I really want maximum airflow in my new case with a window and convinence like all the ports in the front or preferably on the top like power,reset,ieee 1394, 2 usb and microphone/headphone jacks.

Unless your doing some serious overclocking, I think you'll be fine without modding Gigabyte's case. Granted, the intake isn't the greatest, but it does work. It's also really easy for you to just ziptie/velcro a 120mm fan to the side grill.

Depending on your budget, you might want to give the CoolerMaster Stacker 832/830 a look-see.

I really don't want the coolermaster and I don't want some flimsy cheapo case either.

So what is the difficulty then? I see a lot of decent suggestions.

My suggestion--do some browsing online and start eliminating...your feature set is fairly common--you should have plenty of choices...too many choices really..

I want it to have a window so badly. I saw that EXACT case in bestbuy but from velocity micro and it had a window.
This link is not to a specific case...

click and see--it just pulls up a ton of cases...

Performance-PCs.com has windows for Lian Li cases very reasonably priced.

I would suggest the PC7A PLus II with a window from Performance PCs--excellent construction and design.

I just ordered a side panel with a window from PerformancePCs.com, and had them drill a 120mm fan hole into it. Gonna stick a nice Panaflo in there
