    Sweet guys thanx for the good info on cases, I really need a new one so I can OC well

    I love Newegg and thats where I ordered my new build I just got that I have been trying to optimize ^^ Ill check out all the CM cases as I see they have excellent ratings

    Gonna order my new PSU tonight, think I am going to get the Corsair TX650w cause its made by Seasonic, the TX750w is made by CWT, so I rather have the Seasonic, maybe I'll splurge and get a new case also... good thing I'm not married atm

    I love my HAF922 by cooler master....While you at it may as well get a worthy heat sink.

    Hmm... what is e-ATX that I hear about thats in the full tower cases, never heard of that?

    I must say Conners, I really like that CM HAF 922 I was lookin at ^^

    I have the CM HAF 932, I can honestly say, it is the best case I have ever had! Both the 922 and 932 are in a class of their own.

    EATX is a just a longer motherboard than a standard ATX board. It gives you MORE room, like a full tower case, things are not as cramped/stuffed in there.

    As much as I like my RC-690 case, when you factor in the additional cost of several quality case fans ($15 - $20 each), the HAF 922/932 cases would be the better way to go.

    As I recall, both HAF cases are a bit wider than my case and you could probably use a taller cpu heatsink without interference problems with side case fans.

    very good point. i did get luckywith my RC690 with rebate i only paid $19 for it. and i do have 4 antec tricool red led fans in it. and 2 areocool streamliner 140mm as well. and with my OCZ vendetta 2 cooler i cant have a fan in one of the side panel slots. to tall...
    sorry to get off topic., but i think the HAF932 is the way to gooooo.

    If you go with the HAF 922 I'd also buy three 120mm fans (two for the side one for the bottom) or a 200mm fan for the side and a 120mm for the bottom. The bottom also allows for the fitting of a 140mm (instead of 120mm)fan if you like.

    HAF 932 is 9 inches wide-- big cpu coolers NO PROBLEM! plus having the wiring management and a cut out under the CPU for access to the bottom of the motherboard when mounted (perfect for cooler bracket access)

    Wanted to add one more thing--

    The HAF cases do not have any filters-- so, if you use the bottom fan option, its going to work like a lot like a vacuum cleaner and suck things off the floor into the case.
