I found a case that I really like, here is the site's description:
X-ALIEN PRO BLUE: (http://www.dealsdirect.ca/cases/colorcases.htm)
●.Dimensions in MM:
473D X 205W X 522H (millimeters)
●Dual Front USB / Audio Ports
●Front Firewire Port
●6* Blue UV LED 80MM Case Fans
●2* Alien Fan Grill (side and top)
●Backlit LCD Temperature Display
●Full Size See-Through Window
●2* Fan Controllers (front panel)
●Removable Motherboard Tray
●Tool Free Internal Drive Bays
●Slide Side Handle
●Lockable side cover and front panel
●Drive Bays: 5* 5.25", 2* 3.5", 5* HD
●Made from 1.0mm Aluminum
●Comes w/ 500W Aluminum PS

Its 259.95 CDN (think 190$ american).

I have a few questions about it:
1. Does this seem like a good value?
2. Will 500W be enough? I plan on adding a HDD fan as well
3. Is this the same as the same as the Aluminum Silver X-Alien ATX PC Case (http://www.xpcases.com/shop/item.asp?CatID=1&Sku=444)?
4. If so, how much air do their fans move, and are they under 25dBa?

All those cases are versions of the Tiawanese company UNEEC's (http://www.uneec.com/en/) clone cases (formally known as Chenming) who also produce versions for Antec, Chieftec, Enermax, Macase, Thermaltake and others. The cases themselves have excellent airflow characteristics and a 500w PSU should be more than enough but as to the fans used that's impossible to say what they are unless someone who has one can inform us on the make and model of them. :beer:

Ok, if no one can tell me I'll just fire off an email to the store. They would know, right?
