Understood.

Fair enough.


Then it seems that the Xion would be the best candidate?

Either way... enjoy!

I think I'm gonna go for the Smilodon, just because I figure I should face my fears about tool-less. And I've seen some more reviews about the Smilodon, and people say its really well built. Made out of steel which makes it heavier, but I'm not gonna be using it for LAN parties, at least I don't think so anyway. Plus the Smilodon is more shiny. Shiny..

That and the motherboard tray fold out would be awesome. The doors that flip down add some better functionality and easier access, not to mention that they look cool. Those are my thoughts.

The Smilodon is actually a great case for a first time builder ( I know, I've got one ). The only quirk I have about it is the cable management. But it's also the reason it's a good first-timer case (it makes you think). It's also got plenty of fans for air cooling (although I would rather a 120mm rear fan than an 80mm). I haven't had a single problem with the tool-less either. All my drives are in there pretty solid.

It's a good thing you're not going to be moving it much, cause the thing is HEFTY!

Alright thanks for the information. The main reason I'm getting it is because, as most people say, its built like a tank, hence its heavy.
