They just lowered the price from $109.99 to $89.99 with free shipping. Nice looking mid tower case with plenty of room inside, especially with large graphics cards. Their scout looks cooler with the black painted interior and handle but doesn't have the space that this one has. Check this sexy pic of a modded case from slashgear.

If I knew my cpu heatsink/fan would fit in it without hitting the side panel I would get it. I have a Coolermaster Wavemaster right now and the heatsink sticks out too far where I can't put the side panel on all the way.

Similar problem with my Cosmos, you can't have the 230mm side intake fan on with my HS mounted either way.

This case does have a large bulge on the side though, just not sure if it would clear a top/bottom mounted large HS where it tapers off.

Well it looks like my Wavemaster has a listed width of about 8 inches and this one has a listed width of 10 inches. Hmmm

I recommended it to a friend, and helped him build a computer. This thing is pretty big, and pretty wide.

Dammit you guys probably are gonna make me spend more money now :lol:

My current case is also notorious for having bad cooling so it would be nice to get a better flowing case.

I just looked at pics of a wavemaster. This is SO much better. Worth it I think. Plus comes with the real easy to use HD shelve thingies. Look up review clips on youtube and decide :)

I just noticed you have the 932 Bob and it's width is listed at 9 inches so it's 1 inch less wide as this one and you are using a big Ultra 120 heatsink. How close is your heatsink to the side panel?

I wouldn't be able to give exact numbers, but I can close it firmly, no rubbing or scratching. I think there is less than a inch of space, maybe half an inch?

Actually closer to an inch maybe JUST under 1 inch.

The airflow in these things is pretty monstrous. They blow, blow, blow.....:bleh:
I only wish I got some colored fans. I got 6 higher rated coolermaster fans, but my case is all dark :(

Cool then I guess this is my next case. Thanks for making me spend money you bastards.

It will be nice to not have to be embarrassed when people come over though because right now I have a piece of cardboard from a Dell box duct taped to the side of my computer since the side panel won't go on. :D

It's just an LCD fan controller I think. I like the simple design of a "dial" fan controller.

its a touch screen fan controller, you can buy them for about 50-60 bucks on newegg, frozencpu etc...

Just bought the case and a round red ide cable. Looking forward to getting this and finally having a side panel on my computer instead of a piece of cardboard. :lol:
The cooling should be much better too.

By the way for anyone interested this looks like the fan controller on that modded case in the first post.

$69.99? DAMMIT! Now you tell me! :(

Ahh nevermind that is in store only price (no Frys where I live) plus you have to send in a rebate which I hate.
I'm happy again:)
