Im ordering these new parts:
DFI Lanparty Expert
Opteron 175
7800 GTX

I need a new case to keep my stuff air cooled. Can anyone recommend any? Ive been looking at the Cooler Master Centurion 5. Anyone use this case? What about the Thermaltake Tsunami?

Im gonna be using the XP-120 to cool my Opteron.

always look at quality over price or looks with a case (as with any other hardware to boot :) )

a note on the xp120, make sure your mobo is compatible with it. some mobos won't fit it.

I recommend the pc-60. it's basic, but it's quality and plenty of space. good airflow too.

The Centurion cases with the 120mm fan holes F/R are nice boxes. More is mainly ePeePee.

Which case would you recommend from Lian-Li? And you mean the XP-90 heatsink? Can't find a pc-60

Well i'm buying the p180 myself. It's a bit of a bitch to set up but once it's done it's an excellent case. Slight issues with some PSUs having overly short cabling, but that's the biggest gripe i've heard of for the case.

Please guys. Help me out. I wanna get this case ordered.


I'll go with door number 2 Bob Barker(The Price is Right)

It has 120mm fans=lots of air flow with quiet. If you want a window a left side cover can be purchased later seperatly or you could mod one in yourself.

Door #4 weighs 31# empty=quiet case with weak door hinges. Doors give a little more silence but seem to get in the way.

Door#3 has 80mm fans.

Door #1 hurts my eyes. Way too busy. It has no slide-out motherboard tray like door 2 & 3 do.

If you are new to building a rig a slide-out tray is just too nice to have.

If you'd be willing to spend a bit more, I could recommend you my ThermalTake Shark. I know, it's rather expensive, but it's very spacy 'cause it's big, it's made out of aluminium (even the front door) and it features all the goodies like a removable mobo tray, lockable door and side panels, and it can easily fit the WC kits...

Not trying to confuse you, but it's a very solid case with two 12cm case fans that are VERY silent.

Lots of reviews around the web that confirm this...
