I'm going back air cooling for my new Conroe rig. Really no need for water with a conroe.
Plus I'm just getting tired of water cooing. Just time for a change again. "lol" ;)

What is the "best bang for the buck" case out right now?

I do want looks and cooling performance.
We need a good case thread anyway. :D
Please post pics to if u have them.

Looks like it has a shin guard in front from an angle'd view but it looks pretty cool in person. It is a shield looking thing, looks like some gundam towrards the bottom:lol:

P-160 is very practical. Limited to 4 HDDs in the main tray area but that is usually enough.

I also heart my P180 for its amazing airflow but I'm the first to admit it's uglier than sin. :(

yah it is, but I might get mine airbrushed or something... Dunno what to put on it, but I think it would look awesome.

One more vote for the Antec P180. I love my P180, but I think its too plain and thats why its gonna get the same treatment my super lanboy did. Just need to hunt down a color, i've been eyeing a nice maroon/burgendy color but i don't know just yet.

This is my old lanboy, its just boxed up now.

Hm, for internals i love the lian li 1000/2000 series, and their 65/75 stuff are really well also, but they have their faults with size and acoustics. However I still love em!

Yea well they are pretty much all aluminum... so they aren't that great for acoustics... but nobody buys them for that :D

It's huge and stable as hell. Its so strong, I love this case. Its expensive as hell but DAM is it well worth the cost.

Ever since I have started building cases and modding computers I have been really impressed with Aspire. They make very nice, clean looking cases as well as the ones for you heavy gamers who want the top notch detail and such. The one I have is below and it works very well. The components inside never go above 32C with the exception the video card which never goes above 45C, and I do a lot og gaming. The general case temperature never goeas above 79F. I understand to an extent, your room temperature will have an affect but this case does extremely well.

I still prefer the "original" CM Stacker (not Stacker 2), I believe it is even more versatile than version 2:
