    +1 to the 800D...I drool for this case, but it is too pricey for a case in the warden's (wife's) opinion. But if cost is not an issue, I think it is the best full tower I have ever seen.

    That's a pretty subjective question.
    I have an original Thermaltake Armor with the 250mm side fan, and it suits me just fine.

    IF you force me to pick two more, these would be them:

    ABS Canyon 695

    Silverstone TJ10

    But I really think the 800D wins hands down.

    ^^+1 to checking for a case that suits your needs. I always had full towers, then recently chose to go with the CM690II Advanced. Best case I have ever owned. Very user friendly, and has some great features. (Plus it is only $100).

    It is a little smaller, but the top fans can be mounted under the shroud on top, so that gives a little more room. The HDD mounting system is real nice, and the bottom 4 can be removed to accomadate a 120.2 rad on the bottom, and the top is made to hold a 120.2 rad as well. But like I say, it is a mid-tower, not a full tower, so it is definately smaller. My only real complaint about it would be that my bottom video card is only about 1" to 1 1/2" above the PSU.

    This thread should answer any questions about it you may have ------> http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=113623

    MM cases are only for leet people, hence its the best because average people would think its not good.

    I'm still using a Thermaltake XaserII (Black/Red) case. Bought it new years ago. Still in EXCELLENT condition and cools rather well. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. =)

    They are also made of acrylic. No thanks. I would take any Lian Li x1000's are nice, Corsair 800D or any Silverstone (all aluminum) full tower.

    I still swear by my Coolermaster stacker 832 and a close second has to be the new Corsair Hdd.

    The best water cooling case SStj07 case.
