Aspire's can be found on Newegg as well. They can be found pretty much anywhere. And to Warrior, I don't know where you're getting this "cheap" feeling from. The reviews where people are like, "the plastic front is always coming off" must be having death matches with it or something because it's one of the most durable cases I've had.

Second, JTingly that's an okay case the only problem I see is that there is only 1 120mm fan in the back. I like cases which have a front intake and rear exhaust of vice versa to keep air moving THROUGH the case instead of around inside of it.

My suggestions:

I have an Aspire X-Navigator ( http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811144089 ) but I think that's a little out of your price range. Great cooling (even if a little loud) and it looks amazing at night (lots of LED's and interchangable face plates).

Aspire i would imagine would have more than one manufacturing facility and like most things quality varies, from what ive seen in shops(they are surprisingly popular in shops for some reason) they have all looked cheap to me but maybe it was just the ones they had on display, but people say that about the lanboys and they are fine the door would be better if it was alluminium but then the case would cost more.

The coolermsater centurian 5 series is one of the best range of cases available i dont think ive ever read a bad review of one, they have the coolermaster quality without the price tag lots of good features dual 120mm fans cant get any better than that for the money. The latest ones are the 530s price wise usually the same as the older 5s but i like the looks a little better but the 5s are different in style, there is a rival to the lanboy from coolermaster called the ammo its cheaper and it looks like its pretty nice.

That was the case I was supposed to get with my new compy but when I went to order it, it wasn't even an option anymore :whistling: So I went with the next best, the X-Navigator.

It's a good case, smaller than the X-Navigator but it has a side port fan as well as a rear giving it a little more airflow (especially if you make one an exhaust).

Some people will say reviews like "front door too flimsy" but it's really not if you use it like a normal person not flinging it around :blink: I say go for that one!

Glad I could help! Good luck with the new case!

As a side note, in my Navigator I have 2 rear fans (exhaust), 1 front fan (intake), and a side 120mm fan that I have disabled for sound reasons. My CPU and HDD are never above 40*C so if you find your two fans not cutting it, look into getting a replacement (they're only like $10 max!)

The only major quam i have with that case is its still using 80mm fans where 120mm is the prefered standard due to lower noise and higher output of 120mms. The difference is pretty big between 80mm and 120mm fans.

Bigger fans are only better because they can push out more air while staying quieter. There are 80mm fans out there that can match a decent 120mm.

If you think it's too loud, find a quieter fan (under 30dB noise level [which is stated in all fan specs on websites]). Also, the more air it moves is better. Around 40CFM's is good for a fan (according to MaximumPC whom I trust wholy.)

As long as you keep good care of your case (no dust, using the fan speed knob and the like, you'll be absolutely fine. No, your case will not get even close to blowing up :whistling:
