    I'd forget about 5, 6, 7, 9 but the rest are quite ok so long as they're fitted out right (sorry but side intake fans that arn't over the AGP/PCI slots are really useless unless they're over the CPU plus have an AGP/PCI intake as well and then ya'll ned a blowhole for airflow balance. 2 and 4 will need a side AGP/PCI fan fitted not only to balance airflow (ya need a couple of cfm more goin' in than out) but to eliminate a dead spot in that area of the case. :thumb:

    i say go with case 1, i have gone through a couple of cases and this one i f****** love...it has a lot of room in it too...take a closer look..see those 2 metal i think 3.5 bay doors,but the bottom one onlyhas a fan holder and no fan...so i took it off and it gave me a hella lot more room for a cooling system im gonna get....its your choice but it is great case....enjoy :bounce:

    im telling you go with number 1, number 1, number 1

    ok look at this pic...the red part i circled and pointed to you can just take out..its a waste of space, and the blue part that i pointed to is the fan mount i was talking about that you can just take out too...but its your choice..after you take out all of that you will have soooooooooooo much room....cept get a different color..that color is boring, black or yellow or green would be pretty cool with led's in it...enjoy :bounce:

    I'd say go with 1 I have that kind and I simply love it airflow is more than enough plus it's very easy to add/take out 5,25" brackets.

    option 1 looks like it's made out of aluminum (which is lighter and transfers heat better) and option 2 looks like it is made from steel (which is much, much stonger but also heavier)
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
