    I'm leaning towards A7N8X Dlx but still open to other ideas.

    Iv'e been browsing the forums for months and Iv'e seen some really outstanding cases and mods.They show alot of time,money
    originality.The builders should be very proud of them,I know I would be.On the other hand,just the mention of the name"XASER"
    is enough to get a rise out of the anti-Tt crowd.My choice was a "pre-modded" case that may be "loud,cheesey,or whatever" versus some cases that without mods would absolutely bore you to sleep with their "cookie-cutter" looks as a plain chunk of metal chopped off the stamping machine.Everyone has their own tastes-whether it's women,booze,cars etc.I think I made a good choice and I'll be smiling for a long time

    Do you TT fans not see that it is a souped up Chenming/Antec case? You are paying 200 bucks for a 50 dollar case with an average psu. Please do not compare them to LL or CM. They are not in the same league!

    By the way Casetec is the OEM supplier to Tt and Chenming.And considering my Xaser III is all aluminum and has more fans and a fan controller and a 420w psu for $5.00 less than LL PC 70 it will cool just as well so yes it is in the same league.

    Well let's see now-Coolermaster ATC 201B $168.00+$12.00 shipping,Sparkle FS400-60GN $63.00+$6.00 shipping,3 Antec case fans $12.75 (free shipping)Coolermaster Aerogate II fan controller $49.00+$6.00 shipping.Comes to a grand total of $316.75 and it only now matches the features of the Xaser III.To top it all off it won't cool any better than the system I got for$199.00

    Considering the Xaser III's are based off an enermax chasis that can be found for $65 here without the cheesy front panel and cheap fan controler, it's quite a ripoff.

    The only ripoff is that the LL or CM cases configured the same are WAY more money and they won't cool any better.

    *COUGH* BS!!!! *COUGH*

    A 175hp integra is not going to get anywhere those times. A 175hp integra will pull 14's... maybe. Here are a few time slips from cars which are faster than yours and they are doing 15's.

    http://www.streetsourcemag.com/profi...ProfileID=8616

    To get that 1.8 into times even remotely near 10 seconds you will have to turbo it (a big one) and throw a bottle on it and be running drag tires to get the power down. Your integra weights like 2550 lbs or so and came stock with 170hp@7600 / 128lb-ft@6200.

    Ok... i'm done now.

    Please leave the BS at the door for now on.


    (EDIT) Now that I think about it... 8's and 9's could have meant 0-60 speed.

    Prospector - If we are only talking about cooling, then sure you have a case(no pun intended). If you want good cooling for your money, just buy a cheap case and cut holes in the proper places, and you will get just as good if not better cooling than any TT case. I am talking about build quality and looks, as well as cooling and everything else you would want in a case. You CANNOT compare a TT case to LL or CM as far as looks and build quality! Let's put it this way...almost anyone who has owned a LL or CM has said it was well worth their money. This is IMNSHO.
