Case Comparisons

Hey guys, im gettin a new cpu and im trying to find a good case for some SLK-900 air cooling. I've narrowed down my choices to two cases: In-Win q500 or the Chieftec DX-01SLD. Both I will need at least a 420 PSU but which will work best for my air cooling?

Chieftec makes some good cases, I'm very happy with mine - and it has good case flow capabilities. Its not only about the CPU cooler, you will need good case flow as well.

Chieftec all the way man, I love them.
But they are a bit too short if you ask me, so if you find any Casetek's you'll probably love them, just like Chieftec only longer.
Xaser III is based on Casetek CK-1018(steel) or CK-1019(aluminum).

bit late to this thread, only joined these forums today but i wouldnt get a Xaser III (youve probably already got a new case by now but anyways) because it has slots for fans at the front but no intake holes, correct me if im worng, this seems pointless to me and a big design flaw

Yeap, no intake holes.
But I think that can be fixed if you have the right tools.
BTW, I have better cese temps with the Casetek CK-1019 than with the Chieftec AX-01-SLD.
