When you say the mobo is from gateway, is it a BTX? Most of their motherboards are..

EDIT: nvm this post, need to wake up and open my eyes.

He said microATX or do you mean for him to check again?

Anyway the CM690 is huge, alot of airflow.
My cpu is at 25C right now but that's idle.

that's not the case, it's the Xigmatek, mine is 23...



I just picked up one of these the other day...

Cooler Master Mystique

simple yet sleek design and screwless...





microATX compatible, and you could upgrade to full ATX later easily...

Leave it to me to suggest Lian-Li. You'll appreciate their build quality if you go with them.

he may be able to afford the first one, but with shipping he'd probably still have to go over $100, good build quality usually means heavy when it comes to cases, which bumps up shipping a bit...

They're aluminum, not steel like a lot of cases. He didn't specify if it was with shipping or without, but oh well.

Thermaltake look like a very good brand. They got some very good towers, fancy, durable, popular and "feature-full" lol
