  1. Im currently planning on slowly building a new gaming rig.Im not looking to go SLI but I would like to have the option if I ever feel daring.

    here are a couple of cases that I have been looking

    Antec 900

    top choice but im worried that it might be a bit small for certain parts.

    Cooler master Stacker 830

    A bit pricey

    Cooler Master Cosmos
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119138
    I have heard that this doesnt cool very well and the front door is a problem if there are knobs in the front from a sound card or fan controller

    What cases are some of you guys using? and I have no experiance with liquid cooling so I was leaning on fans.
    Also are there any "hidden gems" out there?

    For me I would always go for the Antec case - what parts are you worried about?
    I have a luddites attitude to water in a computer so would agree with you even if a bit noisier!

    There is a case called "Akasa Eclipse 62" which is very highly recommended.

    That Antec is popular, but I did not want it because of all the lights. I thought they might annoy me. I was also concerned at how loud it would be.
