    +1 for the panzer box I love mine and I just got it, managed to score one off craigs list for 45 dollars, had a lot of scratches so I painted it, paint is almost dry having a fair amount of humidity ATM.

    I have a Lian-Li PC-A05N, which is like a mATX case but can house a normal ATX board. Something like that?

    It's a sexy case but Lian-Li is over priced and under valued.

    Myself as well, except I have the PC-A05S. It's sure small and looks nice, but the cooling is horrible :ohwell:

    I hardly consider €75 overpriced. Not all Lian-Li cases are horribly expensive :)

    Well, my added blowhole on top does an excellent job.:toast:

    I don't have the tools or skills to do that to mine, so I just run it with the side panel off. It doesn't do too bad like that :p

    No, it depends completely on your setup. Some cases (most, actually) don't have enough airflow, and benefit from running panel-less.

    Personally, I don't use a case at all, just a bench station.

    i get both your points, a case with a sidepanel off is proof of a system with poor airflow.

    its also an invitation for shit to get broken, dusty, etc.

    Depending on the enviroment. All of my fans are intake with the side panel off and I get the best temps this way. Dust is nothing, if we are even having the conversation of "enthusiast" cooling or what have you, a can of air or an air compressor is something that should be on hand. Regular maintenence goes with the territory.

    I have to agree that dust is a meaningless argument. A can of air and not being lazy fixes any dust issues.

    Which reminds me, I need to grab new air, and clean my rads.
