i think you should get the lanboy case. my friend has it and its easy to move around, good for watercooling (he has) and looks awesome, BUT
you don want that so i say TT Xaser Armor is the best...it doesn't look small, and its not small.

That TT Xaser Armor perfectly fits the Case "Bling Bling" that I am not interested in. It is large, but I am looking for a more contemporary case.

Considered for a long while... Couldn't decide over the Gigabyte 3D aurora or the Lian Li V100. Then I saw the Silverstone TJ07 and I had to have it. Pity the damn things are so hard to find... Had to wait over a month for the nearest retailer (which isn't even in the country, btw...) to restock his supply of two...Yes, TWO of these cases. Pretty damn expensive to buy too. Then again, how often do you buy a new case? I don't really tend to change cases for awhile.
Apparently because of the manufacturing process, which I hear has a high rate of faliure. Prettiest looking all aluminium case I've seen IMHO. Then again, not everyone likes the "I'm a G5 wannabe" look. I do, tho. Heh. I guess space is a consideration as well, since not everyone likes having a full tower monster sitting in they're room. Works for me, tho.

I haven't seen that V1000 before, but I googled it, and now it adds a whole new dimesion to my problem! That is a really nice case. Thanks!

The only bad thing about the Lian Li V1000 is that the motherboard is too high up to support VapoChill cooling it would appear...

Has anyone ever modded a dual heatercore to any of these cases. I would like to possibly move my watercooling inside of my new case.
