    lol days of searching behind me.. Ive come down to 2 cases really.. Im going water so I need to mount a 240mm rad on whatever case I get for now.

    Now I though I stuck gold with the antec p182 SE case.. but that case has some plastic and Im not sure about how durable the front panel is.. being plastic and all, I want a case that could last a long time and I think I hit it with the Silverstone TJ09 Temjin Tower. If I was to get the p182 case I would have to get a rad case to be able to mount the rad on the back.. not to bad since the case has its top 120mm to help cooling aswell.

    with the SilverStone I can mount my rad like this

    so I wont need to buy a rad casing, there for saving a few $$ for the rad casing + delivery fee... brining the price a bit closer to the p182SE (not that its very close in price).

    So what case do you think I should go for? and what if anything is wrong with the p182 case?

    naa I got a nexa case :p its kinda to noisy, Ive narrowed my search down to these 2 cases.. I thin Im going with the Silverstone.. Im more and more drawn to it.. I than I can internally mount the rad. I really do like the antec p182 though but since I have to rear mount the rad its kinda a turn off.

    I looked at alot of cases theses past few days.. what really draws me about this silverstone is that it has a center 120mm fan that draws air in from the side vents which is pretty cool, I like the pop up i/o panel it has and I like the p182's aswell even a bit more for where its located is better for me since I have my case under my desk.

    I was just kinda scared to pump out this $350 on a case lol so I decided to ask here and make a poll.. Im going in big hurting my pocketbook lol :eek: new mobo will wait till thursdays pay :rockout: thats a another like $300 :S than I might get me a q6600 locally :p g0 stepping that is :O

    well guess I should shut this poll down :shadedshu I alredy made my decision... just ouch lol.

    naa Im not going to do much modding of this case.. I thin I'll paint the mobo tray though :) and cut some holes for cables if needed :p but I want to keep the case looking sleek/original.

    Havent paid for it trogh my bank yet they will only clear it on monday.. so I'll see if I change my mind tomorrow :p was looking at some li-lans but Im not sure about having my mobo upside down since I will be using the Asus pk5 premium which has 2 small fans for the copper heatsinks on the pwms.. heat rises so I dont want that heat rising to the SB trough the heatpipes... I like li-lans though. v1200 elc.
