    no black interior and no window version (yet), also no special cable management tricks... not really issues, but enough for some people to not buy it.

    The outside looks are killer IMO... combine that with some LED fans or CCFL's and you have a killer looking rig...

    it also comes with built in fan control... lets you use a wider variety of fans, and lets you run them as fast/slow as you like.

    A CM 690 is just barely outside your price range, take a look at one.

    SniiPE DoGG, not everyone has to own a Lian-Li, there's plenty of decent cases posted in this thread, so cool your jets.

    How is the HAF 922 not good? As far as I know it's an excellently solid case with some good features. That Zalman also looks nice. Not everyone wants to spend over $100 on a case, I know I wish I didn't. You don't get any kind of performance increase from a case, but you can with the money you save by getting a "budget" one. That said, I know having a quality case does make things a whole lot easier. Hopefully he'll be able to find quality within his budget if he does decide to get a new one.

    Yeah the HAF 922 cools as well as most top tier cases on the market. Its worth far more than the 99 bucks they ask for it.

    Well I know 70 is your budget but man I am telling you. Look at the 922. You might even be able to find one used.

    its better to spend an extra 10$ on a well built case than spend less on crap
