Monster case. Great price! Room for about 50 fans. *L*

This bad boy is only $249!!!!!!!!!!!

Comes with those 80 pin SCA hotswap bays, and one 430 watt PSU (will hold THREE)

Just think of the stuff you could stuff in here?

(SCA drives are CHEAP on ebay.)

(SCA mean Single Cable Attachment, and yes.. that's SCSI)

I believe the door in the front is optional, but why would you ever want to hide this thing??

Did I mention, that it weighs 87 LBs. EMPTY?! That's some tough sheet metal there.

Holy sheet (metal)! I had an original IBM AT, the one in the case that looked like an oversized XT, model 5160 I think it was, anywho the case had a sticker on it that warned that it's weight was in excess of 18kg (40lbs roughly). Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new champion. Now can anyone beat the original IBM XT 5150's keyboard? 8lbs+ for just a keyboard! Carved out of granite it was, the quality control stamp said "checked by F. Flintstone".

They actually weighted those keyboards. The true mechanical keys added some weight too, I guess. (I hate going back to a pc, after I have been typing on my mac keyboards. They are mechanical keyswitches, not this membrane cr@p. (I have a mountain of them too. *s* 45 extended, and 35 compact, approximately. circa 93 to 98... unfortunately, I only have about 30 macs, and even less fortunate... only about 20 apple monitors.)
