I just got RIG setup with 2x 8800 GTX cards and my CPU temp is rising little bit. Maybe its the poor airflow of my case. So shopping for new case. Which one can you guyz recommend me. I need something with plenty of Case room. I mean BIG. I got hardware that generates lot of Heat, like E6800, 4gb rams , 4x RAID Drivers, 2x 8800 GTX....

These are the cases i really like so far. Should i go with one of em ?

Thats what I bought last week. Plenty of space hehe. Oh and the Black one is metal so prety heavy, the silver one is a lot lighter, made of aluminium.

If you want a bit smaller the Silverstone TJ06 is a great case too. http://www.silverstonetek.com/products-tj06.htm

those are good case, but the case I have is a Enermax CS-718, and since its a mesh type full size case, it provides plenty of room and cooling, so Im keeping that case when I order me a ASUS Striker Extreme and X6800 to replace my FX-62 and ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition (with Nforce 590 MCP)

here are a few pics when I first built my current rig months ago, before you laugh at the mess of wire, it was about an hr after I got the shipment of my parts and quickly built it, and since I was so happy to try out my new rig, I did not care to organize my wires before playing around with the computer, today, the computer is organized, and soon to have 2 8800 GTX's and later, Striker Extreme, and X6800

yeah. Well actualy its more like 25/75, the second motherboard is only for Mini ITX so you can use it as a small dedicated server etc... Personaly I plan to use the space for a second PSU instead (I have a 535w Enermax) that way once I upgrade to SLI/Quad core somewhere in 2007 I will only have to add in one of my spare 350W Enermax and a relay circuit to turn it on when the first PSU power up then use it to split the load instead of buying a big ass 850W PSU.

Which one would you recommend me, I need something in which i can easily install Water cooling Kit with 2 Radiators. Would love to have plenty of Room for my Main board.

Love my Stacker 810. As you can see, plenty of room for whatever.
