    I'm looking at the Antec 900 and the A Plus Twin Engine so far. Name some more :).

    I just sold my 900 and it was a great case. Cant go wrong with it if you are air cooling.

    One thing I HATED about the 900 is that they put the damn PSU on the bottom and is about impossible to hide the wires.

    I wasn't too sure about the bottom PSU mounting and still ain't because I'm not sure if my wires are long enough but they seem long enough. Still not sure.

    for best airflow get a case with dual fans in the front and dual 120's in the back. the twin engine has wayy to much positive pressure (no need for exaust fans). the 900 looks like a solid case though. have you looked at the stacker cases?

    I wouldn't recommend the HP Pavilion XE783 case...it has HORRIBLE airflow! There's no case fan mounts! Seriously, if you want a good case, with good airflow, you should go with what d44ve has.... http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=33251 from the pics, it looks like it must have great airflow! It also looks good! :D

    Using a Thermaltake Kandalf LCS here. Good case, miles above my old Centurion 534. Can recommend it, even if it's a beast of a case (22kg without hardware or fluid in it).
