The case my gf and i have have crap cooling. Psu mounted up top and video pointed down right at the bottom. gets pretty hot. I been looking at tons of brands and top cases. Here is the list i think is the ones that were top.

I hear the Antec is good and is the top selling on Newegg.com. The Thermaltake and Cooler masters were top on tigerdirect. I was leaning towards the Antec, or thermaltake, or 430. lol. cant decide.

Hi Aukake.


I am a big fan of Antec, the build quality is very good.


My choice from your link would be the Nine hundred. Also look at the Three Hundred Illusion Black, a little cheaper, but great cooling.

I agree with iammykyl and the Antec 900 would also be my first choice.

Info,

Take anti static measures when working on the computer and when handling parts.


Insure that you carefully remove the I/O shield from your existing case by gently pushing into the case,
If installed, remove the one that comes in the Antec 900.
Fit the original I/O shield from your old case into the new one, inserting from the inside.

Check the number and pattern of the stand offs on the mounting plate in the 900, they must match exactly the screw hole in the Motherboard, no extra ones.


Good luck.
