    The Chieftech cases are great :thumb: They have damn good airflow, and theyre really sturdy :D, only problem is they weigh a lot :( . As long as ur not gonna use it for a lot of LAN parties its one hell of a case. I dunno about the keyboard and mouse that come with it :confused:, I used an old keyboard and mouse,a nd just painted it all to match when i got the new case : party ha Good luck on ur purchase, its a damn nice case :thumb:

    If you plan to lug it around any, aluminum wouldn't be a bad idea since it's lighter. However, these are very nice cases, hands down.

    heavy?

    only when you load it with a half dozen hdd, 2 cdrom board, cpu, hsf, ram, and addon cards ;)

    get the alooooominum version

    cheiftec=antec=alienware=a few others

    oh, and the kb/m isnt' really black, it's more of a dark grey, so get some other brand

    no the dark grey is fine, :p , but the weight might be a problem cos i need to get it shipped from some european distributor, so i prolly will order an aluminium one and will buy the fans and ups myself, saving on shipment money. :o

    2x HDD
    3x Optical
    1x Floppy
    PSU
    3 addon cards

    Steel case

    It is more portable than the full-tower I had before. 6 5.25" bays for starters.

    Yeah, I must be a freak or something. I can still load up several 3.5" bays, so it can get heavier.
