If you didn't mind going a bit higher you should check out their Magnum STH10. It's a standard tower but holy hell it's a nice case. If you ever lost your home you could move the whole family right in. Tiny Tom Logan from OC3D did a review of it and that guy isn't short. That case was huge next to him as he was sitting down next to it. $570 for that one though. If I had the money I'd definitely get that case. Of course the extras cost more to apply to it. Like the big bay window TTL was reviewing. But it's got room for a 4x180 in the Left side door with room to spare.
I am IN LOVE with that Magnum M8!! I've spent most of my free time today at work checking out Case Labs site. Configured as I would want it, with shipping, its coming in at $505.33 (ouch!). That might take me a while to get around to, but I'm definitly going to keep it in mind as my next case.

Wonder, you gonna go with the AP-30s or AP-29? the 29 seems like it might be a better balance of noise (i think it can be run slower).
of course if things like that don't bother you, then by all means go 30.
It looks like the 29s and 30s are the same price on FrozenCpu, and seeing as I can adjust the speed w/ my fan controller, I figured I'd go bigger (never know what you might need in the future). I can always turn them down if the noise is too much, but frankly, noise doesn't seem to be an issue. I have 5 desktops running in my CIC (Command Information Center
), and just between my i5 and i7 systems I have 16 fans all running full blast (most are CM SickleFlow
so they are pretty quiet, but still, I just don't see noise being much of an issue.

I did a disk check and that was fine. I am going to defrag the system before I leave work today. I really hope I can get this squared away. If I keep having problems like this, I am going to have to leave the team.
Sir, I really hope you can get the issues taken care of, I really don't want to see you leave the team!
