Help choosing case

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a case that the has lots of room, good cooling, and enough space so the Zalman cnps9500 LED will fit in. I was thinking either the Thermaltake Armor or the Aspire X-Navigator.. But i dont know.

Any suggestions? (budget=150$)

noooo...you don't want to do that to a p180... lol that thing is triple layered on the side...and not to mention expensive. maybe on a 40 dollar case that'd be a good idea, but not on that particular one.
