thats the exact link, ther is about 4 case mods in there. but they are all pretty kool. at least for newbies like me and you dude. and i like both cases skyhawk, whicever one has more functionality, thats the one to go with.
actually, the thinkgeek cases are lian li. personally, for the money, i'd go w/an enlight full tower. ungodly amounts of room (duh, full tower!), including a second PSU bay (redundancy can be good). 6 5-1/4 ex. bays, 2 3-1/2 ex. bays & 3 in. 3-1/2. (w/possibly a sixth under the cage (unless you need that 90-120mm fan there (comes w/an 80mm)).
another decent, small case is the enlight 7237/300w mid. (as pictured). good amout of room, no annoying pass-throughs, but no room for an extra PSU (though enermax makes a 451w, if you need the extra power)
then again, like almost everything else, its all a matter of what you're lookin' for
well AlienWare has some sweet cases.. my friends has a few.. the front his hydrolic.. you push a button and it slides down on jydrolics.. its pretty kewl.. or even buy one pre-built.. there not bad for example the AURORA DDR..... http://www.alienware...ea51_aurora.asp
Nice looking cases. I would not go with only one internal bay (even with today's huge HD's - who knows what tomorrow will bring?!!!). Make sure you get lots of cooling to your mainboard and video card. New systems run quite hot.
ya.. my motherboard has a fan on the chipset.. and also i ahve that buge arse colano can on me cpu. my radeon has a little cute heatsink and fan.. then those bay fans @ the back.. i think that will be enough, if not i'll shove a few ontop of on the side
nah, why waste all that space for redbull. if you wanna make it COLD, use peltiers (just make sure you got the voltage & that you but the cold side 'towards' the chip (i've seen it happen, friend w/a p3 put it on backwards after overclocking; chip lasted about 5 minutes, then let the smoke out)).
Well, don't I feel like an idgit, I have been looking for cool cases a lot like the ones you have here and couldn't seem to find anything that really got it for me. Got any links to where someone can go to find these beauties?
