Yes... Ultra Aluminus pwns... LOTSA ROOM!!! It also has wonderful air-flow to those of us who have fans (and by fans, I mean: people and little square objects with blades).<br />
<br />
That RadioShack deal is pretty good.... if you get the rebate. I say 'if' because OnRebate.com fails at life, in my expierences.

I like the Chemming/Cheiftec cases..The Ultra has one big advantage over them 120mm fam mounts...One bad thing about them is the door wont close all the way with a lot of bay devises, switches and things...I just cut the top center of the top door out works fine now...<img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

</div>I hate rebates too but the last 4 from onrebate through Radioshack have worked fine. The trick is to do the speeded up version, you have to agree to give onRebate $4 but they do the rebate in 3 days. Much better than waiting for months. Radioshack had Ultra PS for free and $9,99 last month and I bought them both plus the Aluminus case and a Wizard case too ($9.99). So far no probs with the rebates.<br />
<br />
BUT! you have to make sure your addresses match up or your screwed.<br />
<br />
Here is my fix for the ultra door<br />

$80 stacker.... this is a reputable company I've bought my own stacker there along with at least $500 of other equipment over the last six months.

The Ultra Aluminus is only like $70?? I thought it was a mid tower, according to tiger direct and newegg.

it seems pretty big to me, there is a 2" space above the PS.<br />

Otherwise the one Chozart recommended is even taller

</div>It may be classified that way, but make no mistake, the Aluminus is <i>gigantic</i>, not to mention the best value under $100 (IMO) for modable cases.

</div>LOL I fail for it as well. And Canada does have a radioshack. I know Nova Soctia does anyway. However that case is online only.

The Ultra Aluminus would be a great case, and the Stacker deal is amazing!<br />
<br />
Also, the Sunbeam Transformer case, if it ever comes back in stock anywhere...: <a href="http://www.xoxide.com/sunbeam-transformer-case-black.html" target="_blank">http://www.xoxide.com/sunbeam-transf...ase-black.html</a><br />
<br />
Not sure how to convert mm to inches... but this case is pretty cool, good airflow, and cheap: <a href="http://www.xoxide.com/aerocool-aeroengine-2-black.html" target="_blank">http://www.xoxide.com/aerocool-aeroengine-2-black.html</a><br />
<br />
Not sure how a mini server compares to a full tower, but another decent looking case: <a href="http://www.xoxide.com/berserker.html" target="_blank">http://www.xoxide.com/berserker.html</a><br />
<br />
Yet another large, server case: <a href="http://www.xoxide.com/chieftec19.html" target="_blank">http://www.xoxide.com/chieftec19.html</a><br />
<br />
Hope you found something in there that you like at least a little <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />
