Lian-Li is where it's at if you really want a great case.

The PC-7A seems like it'll suit your needs. You can choose between silver or black:

Personally, I think the Antec 900 is a very nice case.
it has a 120mm fan at the front (prefit), one at the back (prefit), space for one on the side, and a massive 200mm fan at the top (prefit).

I was just about to say . I love the antec 900 Ever since i saw it at the pc shop i fell in love with it . I never thought anything from photos but when you see it in person it is amazing .
But then Lian-li cases do a great job , but they look a bit plain for my liking

Seriously, if I see one more person recommend an Antec over a Lian-Li case...

Lian-Li cases are much, much better all around. Easier to work with, very large, easy to use thumb screws, rounded edges, and so on. The airflow is perfectly engineered to dissipate heat as efficiently as possible. It's made of aluminum for superior heat conductivity. The list goes on...

Of course, everyone will still go out and buy their flashy LED Antec cases either way

Yeah but it just looks far to boring for my taste . If i had the money i would take the antec 900
Besides its not like the antec fries all your components it still keeps them all cool for instance that 200mm fan on top of the 900 kicks loads of air out and at the top where the heat rises to

The Antec 900, bland?!

Looking at those links, I can see why you'd think so though...

Personally, I think the Antec 900 looks very professional and so very good in appearance because of it, and would do a brilliant job at cooling.

Not heard much about Lian-Li cases, but from a link I just went to, the good looking ones with the alluminum fronts with no drives visable cost in excess of 100 or more... eek
