This is the one you want to get:

It's watercooled motherboard tray and side fans. You might need to be careful as it is really looking like a radiator, but it's going to be good to work with. The door opening is well thought though. Hydraulic opening will get the fuss with some poor door designs.

The big thing though, is that the watercooling blocks will help cool the thing preety well and the 120mm fans will help the rest to settle quite well.
Oh god...gross.

ThermalTake has to be one of the least innovative companies ever. They're like EA. They either steal other company's ideas or they come up with the dumbest ones ever. Quality is decent for the most part, but I could easily find a better alternative.

Yeah, with TT watercooling...you'll start to see corrosion after a while. never ever mix aluminum with copper in a loop or you are just asking for trouble.

Very nice. I only have two case fans running and I can feel tons of air being sucked through the front filters.

You can use the edges of the drive bays and other opening and holes in the frame to neaten up the appearance. What you can't tuck up out of sight(stealth) you can make look a lot better.

Thanks man i think il give it a shoot.

Seems that that the case is full of heatpipes.

Oh yeah, Zalman TNN cases are awesome. If they weren't so expensive, I would buy one.
