The Vulcan is a good case... Handle makes the case portable... you will have room for the SLI\Xfire of your choice... cable management is lacking, but nothing a dremel cant help you with

Thanks for the input. I did look at whatever builds i could find floating around youtube with this case and as long as you use a modular psu its not too bad... I couldnt honestly see myself investing this kind of loot into a micro rig with a budget case but if i won it in the contest it would be pretty sweet.

If im putting my own cash into a rig though its gonna have a feature rich case like the 810 i bought.
but it was fun to design this micro beast...the other case of choice in this size bracket is the thermaltake armor a30 which seems pretty nice too but less efficient...
