Default Computer Case w/ AC

Well I have one last debate on this awesome new build I'm working on. I want it to have Air Conditioning. This is the only case I could find...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811221002

Does anyone know of any others. I'm thinking about getting that one, but the reviews for it aren't the best. I don't care about the price, I just want a good case with excellent cooling in it for great OC'n. Any other suggestions, or should I stick with that case?

Owner reviews make an interesting read

Works as advertised: cools below room temperature between 3-5 degrees Celcius.........

I'm now contemplating the addition of more fans to increase circulation, especially around my graphics cards (pretty hot at ~65C~ each).

Seems like a lot of noise for not much return, I think water cooling would probably be a better option, the aircon seems like a gimmicky type thing to me.

If you want a bad ass case check out this. So many options although its pricey.

Otherwise something like this would work.

If thats still to much go with this proven budget air cooling setup.

You would be better off air conditioning your room than buying one for your PC. They aren't worth it.

The Antec 900 is always a great choice, especially when modded to hide wires. Antec will eventually be releasing the 1200, which will have 2 120MM fans on the back, 3 120MM on the front with room for four, and a 200MM fan on top possibly coming with a radiator with it.

I'm a fan of this guy for cooling, but it's a little large.

Okay I've decided to just forget about AC.

I'm checking out this case and I'm really admired by it.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133021

Think it's a good case? Also when I order it, should I by more fans or is what it comes with sufficient?
