what case do you guys like that is on the top of your case-wish lists, in terms of cooling and style. it could be around 150-250

i'm thinking of going with the wavemaster but i don't know if that's good enough to cool my 3500+ (newcastle).

also people say that the winchester has a cooler core which means that it can oc better. can the newcastle core oc almost as well? Is there a huge difference between the amount you oc them both

there are many cases that look awesome. check out www.newegg.com www.mwave.com www.casedepot.com www.directron.com for the hottest computer cases.

it depends on your taste too. me i dont like lights and leds nor do i care about them. its too ricy for me.

my favorite cases are antec.

Wow! A little over budget there? Anyway, the case scored a 9/Kick Ass, was used in the DM'04, named case of the year by MPC, and Garetjax also has one or two. Yeah, I'd definitely pick one up if I had the money.

Also, check out Thermaltake. (AKA CM CopyCat)

I really like that Silvestone case, but damn, that's a lot of cash for a case. The TT cases look pretty nice, especially the Soprano and the Dream tower.

Didnt MPC do a review of that case? I seem to remember them saying the front LCD was mostly useless.

I will be using the TJ03 for my dream PC (ultimate gaming PC *smiles*) and the color will be black. I will also purchase the window upgrade (too scared to mod it myself- $270 case? If I mess up, then im screwed) and add in blue lights to make it glow blue. Add a Zalman water cooling system and you got an evil case that will make all the ladies melt. 8)

Tsunami. It has the better cooling solution and it's cheaper.
