    Case recommendations!

    Hey guys!

    Been out of computing for a while now and I'm looking to build a new rig soon. So um.. yeah, I'm tired of HUGE cases (U2-UFO, Stacker etc...) taking all the space on my desk. I'm looking for a mid-tower in which i could fit all my watercooling stuff - with or without modding. I have a jigsaw and skills so It's not much of a big deal if I need to drill a hole. I was wondering if any of you guys had any recommendations? Personal experiences? I had a look around and everybody still seems to be using the same full-tower cases as they used to a few years ago...

    Either it be full-steel or alu, I don't mind as long as it's a mid-tower. Window or not is also okay. Alltho a window would be great.

    Thanks guys

    Have a look at Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced. A couple of new Corsair cases are pretty decent, too.

    Corsair Graphite Series 600T is pretty good. The Corsair 800D & 700D was just a tad to big for my taste.

    Thanks guys! You gents are always helpful! After much consideration, I will be getting the CoolerMaster 690 II Advanced with sidewindow!

    PS: The Obsidian you linked to me PSH1138, looks pretty nice as well. But i am afraid I'll have trouble getting it in Montreal :S
