Thermaltake Kandalf VA9000 Case

http://www.thermaltake.com/xaserCase.../va9000bws.htm

I like the way that fans and drives can be relocated with this case. It's also got holes ready made for water cooling.

Theres a Silverstone case that borrows from the btx design. It's an atx case but it puts the motherboard upside down and has a wind tunnel across it, it's meant to be really effective and quiet. I'm considering getting one.

I like the look of the Silverstone cases, not too toy like looking.

Wow that looks like it has the same tri-120mm front intake fan and filters type system as my Stacker, only not the extra height for the second powersupply. That might make it less cumbersome for lanning...hrmmm maybe I'm interested

Fan design is great...as well as the huge vent at the top-back of the case...

cada, ive just ordered a bigwater kit with the extra flow meter and the VGA waterblock, how does it perform? ive read alot of very good reviews on it despite its price / pump power which is why i bought it but i havnt used or seen the unit myself.

It's mediocre...really. I mean, it looks good, it's got me way below what i could on air, but you adding vga to the loop without a resevoir...i dunno. I've got another rad, the window tank, the flow meter, and new tubing and fittings on the way, so we will see the potential it really has.

The block i really like, but the clamp-plate covers most of what is so good...unless you are going socket A. Got me to what you see in sig on the A64 system.

there is a non thermaltake clamp some people have used with it that is meant for dangerden blocks and clamps around the rim of the block so you can still see the centre of it clearly. i think thats a must for it.

i would probably run 2 rads to keep the vga cool as well (6800GT = hot as you know) but well see how it goes. quiet safe and easy is what im after more than high performance but a higher OC would be nice too
