Default I Finally Found My Case To Get!!

Ever since I upgraded my system (AMD 965BE OC'd to 4.2GHz, MSI 890FX), I realized that I needed a new case with better air flow than my Lian-Li PC-A6010B. To keep the temps @39-41C, I had to turn the 140mm front and 120mm back to full blast with a Zalman CNPS9900-LED. I turn down my OC to 4.0GHz for now until I can get a better case.

I was finding that I liked the features found in the full tower like some of the Coolermaster Cosmos cases or the ATCS 840. But wasn't found of the huge size.

I not a big fan of clear case windows, because even with filters, dust builds of too quickly. I was always taking the case panel off like 2-3 times a week. I don't mind mesh though, because all you have to do it wipe them off from the outside.

I also tend to be particular about the cosmetic appearance of my case. I like simple, clean lines.

I was actually deciding between the Coolermaster HAF 22 or the Sniper, but then I found this!

I really like the layout, looks and design. Even how the fan controller is not some big bulky knob, but low profile instead. I would replace the white led fans with red or blue ones, but that's about all I can find to gripe about.

Newegg just started selling these. I'll wait a month or two for a sale or discounted shipping.

So what do you guys think?

I know it's kind of big for a mid tower, but it's still small than the full towers from Antec, Coolermaster and Lian-Li.

I do like the CM 690 II, it was also one that I also considered. I was a little picky with the look of the side panel air vents. Not a big deal, just something I would consider.

Oh, I wasn't complaining, I would grab that in a heartbeat if my current case weren't a gift from my lovely wife recently

Your WIFE bought you a case!?!?!

HOLD ON TO HER... AND NEVER LET GO!
I hope you know how lucky you are.

On a GOOD day, the best I get are mocking comments.
