I have my rig all setup now with my new water cooling and I was looking at it...and it's really a tight fit for everything. I was thinking I should buy a new case. What does everyone else think?

If I get a new case, it will have to have a few things no matter what:
-Lots of fan options
->=4 5.25" bays
->=6 3.5" bays (internal + external)
-Have room for a 9.5" long X1900XT, and an equally long Tidewater
-Window!

Extras I want:
-Blowhole fan
-Upsidedown ATX motherboard tray
-Two power supply mounts
-Case under or about $150

I like the case, but I would not use all of it, plus the case needs to fit on my desktop. An upsidedown ATX motherboard tray/case would allow me to put the case against the wall and still have a window.

Hehehe you said blowhole.
I would go for the new case if you have money to spare for it. You can trick it out and make a build log with it.

Its a mirrored case though, so you could flip it and it would work out just fine.

Here is a good price on a Stacker.

And a clear side panel for it.

EDIT: Oh and "all you do is take take take."

I hated the armor until I went in and looked at it in store. If the little door things come off, I would keep it in mind for a new case. I'm also looking at the p180b and the 900.

Yea the tidewater would not fit in a P180 due to the wiring config. However the Stacker I linked can be fliped to have the opening on the other side so it will work in the config you want and does allow for two PSU's.
