Default New case frustration

I've been looking for a good case for quite a while, and even though I'm jobless, I'm still trying to save some cash for a new case.

Yesterday, I stopped at that case:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811103027

It's what I want in a nutshell, but since I'm in Canada, I need to use Newegg.ca's website...so that's what I do.

The bastards though, only have this one:
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16811103026

Notice the non-tinted window and lacks the temp gauge and logo illuminator.

I could live without it, but I'm still wanting the one on the US website. I've went to NCIX, Tigerdirect and even as far as Canada Computers, but in vain.

I want that case from the US...but where can I find it in Canada?

Have a look on eBay?

You might even find another case you like on there for less money.

Is temporarily crossing the border an option? Any relatives in the US that can order it and ship to you?

@ Remeniz, I don't have a Paypal account and I'm looking elsewhere but Ebay for now...but I'm just checking, because you never know lol!

Grantofhell, I wish I had relatives there, but all of them are Canadian...I could cross the border, but driving 4,549 km, or 1 day and 21 hours non-stop kinda makes it cheezy a bit. Oh well, I just will have to settle with something else...or look to see if local shops can have it specially delivered...

Didn't realize you are that far from the border :O Much less a place to stay at while the order is taken care of.

Exactly...I'll settle for another case or try specially ordering it.

But to be frank, I live vlose to the border...just the complete opposite of the continent lol!

I moved the thread by the way...How could I put it in the feedback section? I thought I had it in Hardware...

Whoa, you're a mod again?

Not the answer you're looking for, but get this instead

The Cooler Master Storm Scout case is also topnotch, I would highly recommend it

I've actually went yesterday and bought myself a NZXT M59 case, and a pair of cold cathodes. I still have a problem setting the cathodes right, since they're too long, but other than that, it does what I wanted...for just 80 bucks. Pics will be in the gallery.

Oh and...I bought some OCZ Freeze thermal paste. Couldn't find any AS5 or AS3...
