Default Case Choice

I'm looking for a case and I stumbled onto this one. What I was looking for was one with a very good cooling system (not water cooling as I'm not that serious, but something that can do the job), five 5.25 bays or more (I'm running 2 racks and two DVD/CDRW drives... the additional drive bay is for space). I was looking at this one and was wondering if anybody has experience with it (or has heard reviews about it)... is it any good?

I've heard the power supply isn't so good in it, but I'll replace it with a 500 watt one I bought some time ago.

No, I need 5. I want the extra space with 5. A case with 4 ends up being too cramped.

Go with the the Lian-Li PC60 or the the Antec PlusView1000 AMG. The Antec is essentially the case you were looking at, but it doesn't have a power supply, so it's a little cheaper, and I think it's got more quality than the case you posted.

Yeah; those RAIDMAXs are great. I was pondering getting one myself for a self build machine before I saw my current computer on offer prebuilt.

Very nice, and a good price for it too. And you can never have too many 5 1/2 Slots.
