It's aluminum though, so it will be louder. Keep that in mind when you make your final decision.

hmm, yeah, thats also a con... what about watercooling? will it be quieter then?

Also, could somone fill me in on those Zalman heatsink+fan combos? Are they quiet?

So basicly this thermaltake case isn't that great for watercooling?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133143

I'm going to end up spending $600 on my water cooling and another $170-$200 on my case...I've already got about $2600 invested in my desktop.

I'm needing a good case for water cooling...good and easy enough for any noob to use and do it.

it would have room for 2 water coolers! i have a thermaltake swing with 6 drive bays (2 3.5' and 4 5.25' bays) and its got LOTS of space...so that looks like its quite roomy

the 4 bays take up a bit more than 1/3rd of this case, so 11 drive bays OH MAN, i just looked at my case, and only about 8 drive bays would fit onto the front

so go for it

The armor is designed for watercooling. (I am on air and my case temps never go above 2-3C above ambient.) I'll attach some pics this afternoon. Its big, its black, and it has a window. Its also phenomenal for upgrading and airflow. I have changed cases about 6 times in the last 3 years and once I got the armor. I stopped. Although I don't do water, it has pre-bored holes (with supplied protecting grommets). It is also gigantic so its easy to put anything you want in it. It has 11 bays in the front (which can be either 5.25 or 3.5 your choice). the only ones I use are the one for the switches (which includes a 3.5 bay, I have a card reader in it). and I have a DVD-RW. The other nine bays, I mounted thermaltake Icages (It comes with one) which take 3 bays (but give you internal 3.5" x3 for each) and have 120mm fans mounted on the front. (look at my rig profile pic to see or check out my rigshowcase below)

If size and money are not a concern you might check out www.mountainmods.com. Thier cases are big enough to fit almost anything, and have very large windows. You also can't find a more "boxy" shape.

Please tell me who money isn't an object to so I can request that they adopt me.

Incidently, I love the mountain mods cases but my wife would kill me if I bought one and she found out how much I spent.
