Hi, I started a thread in "what should I buy" And I'm looking now for a case to get started on my new pc.

*Must be under $300 ($299 highest)
*Must come with no power supply or fans
*Must fit asus mobo granite bay and p4 3gig
*Must have big arse side window cause I wanna put neons inside


I was looking at the XASER II A5000A plus that Wiggo suggested and I really like this case, but I can't seem to get it for under $300. I want it with no fans or power supplies and I want the window.

I thought I would start a new thread just for my case here as this seems to be the right place. Thank you.:)

Carnt Beat it :) Quality. Definetly better then the Thermaltake as far as Build Quality Goes.

"Quality" isn't a question here as both are equal in this case. :hmph:

The correct word that ya should have used is "Taste". ;)

<small>I'm sorry but that shows signs of not knowin' what ya talkin' about</small>

The panels are alot thinner on the Thermaltake case. Making the overall build quality lower. I work at the Aus Distro for Lian Li and Thermaltake and i can honestly say the Lian Li are a better made case. Anyone who has used both will know.

Woops my bad :p I was thinking of the 6000 :p

The 5000s are too heavy the box is 16kg with nothing in it.

M8 only 1 thing can improve this chassis IMHO and that's a mobo tray but I can live without one. :devil:

How about the new Tt Xaser 3 case ? It looks sooo sweet ! plus it comes with 7 (seven !!) fans, air filters on the 2 front / 2 side intake fans, has the 7th fan on the top of the case, and ... the new HDD cage is now "sideways" so that you dont have to fight to remove the drives anymore. The HDD's mount using rails now, and pull out from the side.
I also like the blue Thermaltake LED logo on the front.

Not nice to make us drool like that Wiggo...

Any idea how much that one runs as far as price?
