the z7 and hades make the others look like nothing. But i wished they would have thrown the antec 300 illusion in there. I wanted to see how my case would compare to those. And i was going to get the CM 690 2 but its like unpolished. Last two cases are good. I like my cases to have holes on the front for more ventilation

Accedentally double posted. But also some cases from companies like rosewill and others not so known also work. A $35 rosewill case compared very well to my antec 300 illusion for $60.

Please review the Lian Li Lancool PC-K62.  They are a lot like the CM 690 II except they are missing the top SATA port.  It has plenty roomy with the HDDs sideways, I fit a Sapphire 5870 in mine without any problems.  You can find the box for under $100.  I've already built a system in one but I'd like to see how it stacks up against the others.  I also fit a CM Hyper 212 with no issues.

Personally, I would buy another one of these for my next build if they are still around.

I like the R4 Bulldozer. Because if my computer is a tank and is named after a tank, I want it to look like a tank too.

I think the problem is there are no links on the second page.  When you click on the case (object), on the second page, a larger picture of the case comes up, no review.  It looks as if the second page is a histroy of the changes in cases, not a review.  Somewhat confusing

 Meh, I really wanted you guys to review the Coolermaster 310 Elite. It's a $40 mid-tower case.

Is that an original tribble from David G?? And has it eaten it's share of quadrotriticale yet?  Just wondering!!

Yes, that is an original tribble. Gordon and I are having dinner with Mr Gerrold tonight -- assuming homeland safety allows even a SINGLE tribble onbaord the airplane he's taking to get to the bay area.

I own that case for my i7 920 system....and my major complaint is, it needs some freaking fan filters! Otherwise, love it.

does a 12.5 inch long ATI Radeon HD 5970 fit?

What about the HAF 922?  I looked at that one and the CM690 II every since the CM690 came out.  I opted for the 922 because it is a much better case in my opinion.  It is much more roomy than the 690.  I am glad I purchased it and it was even cheaper than the 690.
