    Yes. Which one did you get. Was it the Performance, Performance Plus, or Performance II? What model (6xx, 8xx, 10xx, or 12xx), and what power supply (the 300 or 400 or the "True Power" 330 or 430). The cooling is great, they are built very tough (but a bit heavy), they look good and they have lots of nice features (removable drive bays, drive rails, snap-on fan bezels, removable front and side panels, lockable...).

    I got the standard Antec SX 630 Performance case. It just rocks. If I was to get a new case right now though, I might get the Cheiftech clone of the Antec 1030. They have a version with a large side window for only $99 at NewEgg.com. It comes with a medium quality 400w opower supply and it is made of aluminum (aabout 1/2 the weight). They come in nice collors and NewEgg even started carring matching wireless keyboard and mice for only $25. I'd rather have an Antec, but they cost a bit more and the window kit, colors, and weight also tip my desision a bit. If the Cheiftech had the same front bezel as the Performance Plus and II, I'd definately get it (front USB and FireWire under a little door and a slightly improved look).

    frequently heard good reports on antec cases
    trout are freshwater fish and have underwater weapons
    trout are very valuable and immensely powerful
    keep away from the trout

    It's the sx835 performance case. It came with a 350 watt power supply.
