  1. I have already ordered the parts for my computer, and I am still debating on what Case to get! I have come to the CoolerMaster Praetorian, but I am still unsure if I want a side window to my case..if anyone has any suggestions on some cool cases, or whether or not I should get a case with a side window, please feel free to comment!-Thank You:)

    I have a case with a window it really only looks good if it is filled with LEDs and UV lights etc. I think now I would differently go with the p180, it looks to be the most neatest cases and is one of the best cases on the market http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811129154



    My case is linked in my Profile.

    Yea, if you want to have a quiet case or an efficient case, you need a non-windowed one. Because with a windowed case, without stuff that glows, they look REALLY terrible.

    Ok..yea thanks, I think that I am going to get a good quality non-windowed, good looking, aluminum case. Probably the CoolerMaster Praetorian in Black

    Can't agree that it looks terrible just because stuff isn't glowing. I love to see what is going on inside my computer. When i had a case without a side window i found that i just kept the side panel off most of the time. Having a side window actually saved my computer once. I accidently plugged a 12 V. plug into a 5 V., starting a small electrical fire. It was only because my case is completly acryilic that i noticed before, my computer (and possably my house) were in flames. Kinda irrelevant, but goes to show you being able to see inside your comp can pay off.

    You should get a normal case then mod it and put a pexiglass window on it then put neon on it :D

    Umm why the hell bother with doing that when you could just get a case with the window already in it?

    Because it's boring just buying the case
