I may need to get another case. My motherboard (see sig) is sitting very close to the top of my PSU. I'm going SLI, and I won't be able to do this with the third PCI slot because of how close the slot is to the PSU.:thumbdwn:

I'll take pics tonight and show you what I'm griping about.

In the meantime, any suggestions for a new case? I need something roomy and something that has style to it. I like my Cosmos, so I would like to have something along those lines.

I would wait for that Corsiar case if you've got the cash DD, check out the vids on the Corsair website, it looks really nice.

Anything will be better than a Cosmos in cooling. I hated that case and it ran way too hot. I replaced mine with a CM HAF-932 and have seen massive improvements. Cheap and quiet

I really like mine, except for the dust buildup. After about 2.5-3 months, it starts getting noticeable if you open the case.

Dust build ups are not a problem for me. I use women's panty hose as dust filters. I learned this from an Overclock.net thread dedicated to HAF 932 modding. They work excellent and doesn't interfere with airflow at all.

Scroll all the way down until you see "Must HAF Mods!!"

panty hose as filter i already tried. after a few weeks dust builds up fast on the panty hose, clogging the airflow fast.

as for the case... i love my HAF 922 :D

That's the point. All that dust could have been inside of your PC. I always use a compressed air can to dust it off every 2 days. It only takes less than a minute of your time to blow the dust off before it builds up.

I've read some reviews on this case, and it seems to be pretty nice. I just ordered it from here (http://www.provantage.com/) for $136 bucks! (http://www.provantage.com/thermaltake-vl20001w2z~7THER0K5.htm)

The dust filters on my 902 are fantastic. After several months of use in a place with 3 cats... looks just like the day I bought it inside. Fantastic case. If it had the hard drive mounting system of the 922 it would be just about perfect imo.

Hope you have some kind of filter for the side intake.:) Looks pretty cool I think.

Will do. I was not going to get it at first, and then I remembered that I have some extra moolah coming my way for a Vista install I did a few days back for a woman that goes to my Church. Nothing beats free! :captnkill:

I will probably go to Lowe's and buy some mesh to filter the dust....


I can't wait to get it! :D
