    Help me find a case plz

    Im looking for a new case with the following properties:

    Aluminium construction
    Removable MB tray
    Mid/Mini Tower Size
    Anodized Surface
    Plain Rectangluar Box Like look
    No Front Door or Removable/Sliding Door
    Thumbscrews

    Right now I have a CoolerMaster WaveMaster which is nice, but the door is annoying since I use my DVD burner alot. Also the front of the WaveMaster has some well wavyiness to it, but it pretty box like for the most part.

    Thanks

    What you're describing can be summed up in three words:

    Kingwin

    Lian Li

    (those would be my favorites, I know there are others, depends on how much you're willing to spend...)

    EDIT: My apologies about the LL link above. I went to Newegg and searched for cases made by LL, that's what the link was *supposed* to be for. Just about any of the mid-tower LL cases should be fine, such as the PC7APlus, PC7, PC60, or the PC6077, just to name a few.

    I own the silver version of the Kingwin case that Grandpa links. I can testify to it meeting all the requirements you list. I'm so far very pleased with it, owned a little over a month, quick transfer from old case into this one with not a single issue related to the move whatsoever. Very reasonably priced also. although if I had the 200+ for a Lian-Li v1200, that'd be nice. But for less than $100 I'm very happy.

    Not sure which Lian Li Grandpa72 meant to link to, but you might also want to consider Superflower:
    http://www.directron.com/201b.html
    http://www.directron.com/301b.html

    They come in silver as well, you'll just need to browse a bit.

    What about the Antec P160?

    Lian Li's seem to have the features and even thou I want a plain looking case, they seem a bit too plain.

    Thanks

    When I was looking before I saw this case locally at a dealer and I really didn't like the plastic accents, seemed a bit flimsy. IMO.
