    Oh gosh! I forgot to add all of the info. This is my Directron Silver-Magnesium case. Together with the powersupply it costs $220 in the US. I bought it online at Directron.com. It has five 80 mm fans at key locations to give really good airflow. 1 at the top, 2 in the rear and two in the front to cool the internal HDDs and a front air intake. Besides the front it has an aluminum brushed finish. The powersupply I bought was a Thermaltake Silent Purepower 420 watt. Any comments would be nice!

    The only real prob that I find with them is the fingerprints that they collect and the $360+aus price tag.

    I've got the Kingwin case that is very similar to that one...difference being a top blow hole.

    I love the case!!

    No problems with fingerprints either....and the blow hole has finally taught my cat that sleeping on top of the case is NOT a good idea.

    Ok..I must admit that it is a little pricy, but...I think it is very worth it considering that the case itself only cost $140. The powersupply cost $60! The lights and little logo of mine cost $20. Yeah and I forgot to add that the sides come off very easily. The little nobs in the front are screws if you have not already guessed that. Fingerprints aren't actually that big of a problem. The only negative thing I have to say about it is that from far away the aluminum looks like that white OEM stuff.


    Chaos is in HEAVAN!
