    Any word on which is quieter? I'm all about the quiet! Maybe you could get the cheap one and spend the $30 on some kind of mod if you aren't a big fan of side-windows.

    Both are very nice looking! Good prices, too!

    HOLY CRAP!!! I just noticed the second one uses the font from Omikron: The Nomad Soul. It has my vote!

    i would suggest a case from http://www.thermaltake.com because they have lots of room and lots of fans and they still look good.

    Errr...you get what you pay for, keep that in mind. I try to buy the best case/psu because I know they will last me the longest... I would recommend an Antec case. The life style series can mount 2 very nice quiet 120MM case fans.

    i mean, if you DONT want 7 fans in your case, thats your choice, but it wouldnt be mine. But, i guess you could just cut some nice big holes in your case and mount the fans like that. :)

    If you need a very good case but don't need all the flashy stuff I'd say get a Chieftec. Their new BX series look very well made.

    the number of fans and their sizes and placements is the single most important thing to me when choosing a case. 92mm or 120mm exhaust openings are awesome. or at least two 80mm's.

    or you could just buy some really crappy case and leave the sides off. then just get a large fan and blow air through it.

    One 120mm hole acctually has more area than two 80mm's. So yes, 120mm is preferred if available.
