im goin to be movin into a frat house in the fall, and to say the least, i dont want to leave the side of my case open.

so im lookin for a case that will keep my computer nice and cool, look nice, and keep noise pretty low. im lookin into these cases:

Lian Li V COOL PC-V1200B (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16811112090)
Lian Li PC3-426BK Liquid Cooled Case (http://www.xoxide.com/koolance-pc3-426bk-case-black.html)

i was considering water cooling. all that i need to buy is the CPU water block. id keep my ACS3 coolin on my vid card. btw, i want a lian li case ;)

any suggestions? is that koolance system any good? should i just go with the regular case? :confused:

Silverstones rock! Can't go wrong with the TJ-03 but its pretty expensive. ;)

I used to have this aspire caseHere. (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811144102) It was nice and the front tempeature gauge was a very ncie feature. The back PCI slot covers didn;t come with screws though. Not needed but its a pain. They arn't even efficient, you have to tear them off and you have to buy extra backs.

I just switched to this one here (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811196021). It keeps everything very cool and the 250mm and 140mm fans are silent. Not even noticable.

Silverstone, lian li, coolmaster are the only 3 cases I would buy. If you go with lian li get a big one. Full Tower > Mid Tower.

my Antec P-180 has been a good case for me I like how it is designed.

Lian Li PC-6277A

Designed for watercooling (it's a large case)

Aldo, this one is very nice too http://www.xoxide.com/koolance-pc3-426bk-case-black.html
