    Case Question

    I'm going to build my own system high end processor and all, and plan to overclock. Any recommendations as far as what case I should purchase to keep temps down. Any help appreciated or personnel experience I would be greatfull for.

    What size of a case are you looking for? I probably guess you are looking for a full tower. Here are some of the cases I have worked with and think are really good for the prices.

    Supermicro SC-760A w/ 300w redundant PS
    *Around $150 really good value with the Redundant PS, you can even add another Redundant PS to make it even better. http://www.supermicro.com/images/Ima.../sc760A_SM.JPG

    Antec SX1240 w/ 400w smart PS
    *Around $170 with a super quiet 400w PS http://www.antec-inc.com/product/cas...1240all_01.jpg http://www.antec-inc.com/product/cas...1240all_02.jpg

    Lian-Li PC-70 with nothing but the case
    If you have money to burn and you want a top-**** good looking case, this is the one to go for. At $250 with no PS I can't really say that it is a good value. But it is the best looking one and also it is good for overclocking since the whole case is aluminum. Heat is transferred faster. You might even consider an Enermax 450w PS to make this case better. http://store1.yimg.com/I/directron_1624_2962868

    Good luck on your search.
