    I know. The damn thing about gave me a hernia the first time I tried to pick it up. It caught me WAAAAAAYYYYYY off guard. hahaha. But it's seriously worth the bulk. I go 250-260 Lbs, and I can stand on this thing. It also cools like a dream and is compatible with all the current form factors. It should be the last case I'll need for a long, long time.

    I love mine, too.

    It's 14.19 empty for me. Add in all the components, fans, and the fact that I have water cooling, and it easily reaches what you mention, if not more. Thank God they gave us wheels. hahaha

    No doubt, some of our cases are heavy most likely because they are full of drugs :D

    I have a lightweight case (generic brushed aluminum), but have three hard drives, two optical drives, CoolerMaster RealPower 481w, Radeon x850 pro, three cold cathodes, four case fans, and a Zalman CMPS7700Cu (which weighs nearly a kilo by itself. 914 grams). For a cheap aluminum case, it's pretty heavy.
    I'd weigh it, but no one in this house likes scales.
