    anyone has an Elan Vital case here? help!!!

    i have to replace my old case and im planning to get this one:
    http://www.elanvital.com.tw/products/pccases/M-5R.htm

    the page says that it is a midi towercase, im no that familiar with howw big it is. do any one of you guys know if this case has the power supply unit NOT over the CPU of the mobo(ie i want a clear view of the CPU when the case is turned sideways)? My existing case has the power supply directly over the CPU so i have to remove first the powersupply to see the CPU, which is obivously the reason why i need to get it replaced.

    thanks in advance.

    I am not sure about the PS placement in that one but this one http://www.elanvital.com.tw/products/pccases/T-10.htm has it where it won't be in the way.

    I agree... go with the T-10AB or better yet, the T-15.

    According to the hole in the back of the case on that, it's got the PS positioned as you want. A friend of mine has a crappy case with the PS over the CPU, and because of it he could not use his Athlon OC card.

    thanks guys

    i was actually picking b/w the m5r and the t10 but since i want to get my personal touch on the case(good 'ol airbrush...hehe) i opted for a smooth front.

    unfortunately, the t15 is way above my budget(and kinda HUGE).

    thanks skr, duh.. didnt notice that hole...

    The T-10 has three different availible Front Bezels, the "elegant" has a smooth front...
