I need suggestions for a new case. I'm looking for a full tower, black, with cable management (ie holes in the motherboard tray), at least four 3.5" bays (or with an easy to locate and purchase 5.25" to 3.5" bay converter, like what Cooler Master does) and capable of holding a TRUE 120 heatsink. No funky angels. Side fans for the GPUs preferred.

Any suggestions? 'cause I'm going cross-eyed browsing Newegg and the Hard OCP Forum...

Thats nice case, I just don't know why they don't put removable filters on the fans in front and the side intakes, that would put alot of dust in case in couple of weeks only, if I put a blow hole on a side of a case I will buy the find screen mesh covers you get in front of the fan on the outside of case, just vacum it clean every other day with my datavac really easy and fast. my lian li pc 80 armour has a big screen that go's from top to bottom of case in front of the case covering the three 140mm intake fans. I just can't see having a fan blowing straight into case without some filter, Blowing out is different though.:)

I actually managed to find a modified side panel for my stacker this morning, so now the heatsink I bought should fit. The problem was the fan cage is in the way of heatsink, and the new side panel should fix that.

Failing that, I think I'll be getting a Lian-Li PC-B71. That is one nice case. (It was next in the list to the case mullet recommended)

I have the Cooler Master HAF 932 and it has great cable mangement .It is the cleanest case I have put together .Large 230mm fans.the only downside is that it does not have dust filters,but a Thermalright 120 ultra extreme fits just fine.
