    looking for a new case

    I need some ideas on a new case for my computer. I have lookes at a few different ones but noting realy stands out (nothing in my budget). I have been looking at mid and full size towers. min. of four 5.25" bays, six 3.5" bays. Power supply does not matter I have a good 450Watt P/S for the case when I find what I want.
    Feed me some ideas

    Thats' the same one you have isn't it? How is it for air flow?
    Is it fairly study, not that I will be standing on it but if I lean on it, it's not going to collaps.

    mine is the ANTEC sx840(one below the one I showed you)antec cases are made by chieftec.yes they are very sturdy,thick sides and frame.pop out hdd racks(with 80mm fan mounts in each hdd rack),great flow through,and nice mounts for the fans,pop out rails for the 5.25 bays too,pop off front,and locking side panel,lots of room to play,I get case temps from 21c to 25c most the time.

    I have that 840 also....air flow is wonderful...

    As you can see by the above pics....this case is huge......
    The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, and prejudices to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children and the children yet unborn and the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.

    I just got a Lian Li PC65 USB.
    I'll post some picks when I start putting it all together. But so far the case is SWEET! Thumb screws all around, all edges are nice and smooth = no little cuts, pre cut window, pull out motherboard tray, 3 stock fans, and aluminum to boot.

    Looks alot like mine. Even the blue round floppy cable. Here is a pic of mine. The cables are still a little messy. I took this pic right after I put in the new mobo.
