I am considering building a computer, and I have still not decided on the case yet. I was wondering if any of you had any particular favorites. I would like one that would be easy to install a motherboard in and with multiple cooling spots. thanks :whistling:

I would go with either Jame's case which is Antec 900 or my case which is an Ultra Aluminous case that I bought for 50 bucks.

Antec 900, lots of cooling, great case. I have it myself, it's only downfall is that it doesn't have a removable motherboard tray. I have never built with one, but many say I don't know what I'm missing out on. Other then that this case is the real deal, it has support for water cooling, comes with 4 fans (1 fan is a huge 20cm).
I personally really like the case. If you have any questions or concerns, I'd be more then glade to awnser them.

Hehe, mine has a removable motherboard tray, I don't know why in the reviews people say that it doesn't come with one, mine did and its held down by 2 thumbs screws.

Your case could be a new revision.
The antec 900 case is on it's third revision, the newest thing they added was the water cooling holes. The second revision they fixed some bugs with the expansion slots.

Bugs with the expansion slots? Is that like bad code or something? Did they put out a Windows Update for it?

If your on a budget then the Coolermaster Elites and Centurions are a very nice buy. Some people don't like that its screwless and all the parts snap in though. If you got the money then get the Antec.

Yeah, I have never used screwless designs, but it worries me, because if my GPU fell out (I doubt it would) it'd break alot going down. To me screws are more secure and more piece of mind.

lol troy, no I don't think there was enough room to put the plugs for your monitor in certain slots, it was something along those lines.
