Trinity needs to get a new case, why?
Well for starters Trinity's orb case is a massive dust magnet, I have to clean it out weekly. Also I had Trinity's top off after a cleaning and the baby spit some juice on the mobo, Trinity shut down and would not post. I removed power and let her sit for the night to finish drying out. I was really worried that Trinity might not make it. Fortunately the next day, I returned power and Trinity booted up flawlessly Cheesy

So I went looking at many cases the last 2 days, and I finally found a decent case for a decent price here >> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133197

Fair play Syber, I included the cost in the build.

I think the case cost about €60 at todays exchange rate about $82, although everything seems to cost more here anyway.

$82.00 is not that bad for such a nice case  thumbsup thumbsup
I was shocked when I found this case on sale, when I actually needed a case. I'm so use to sales going n when I have no $ and end up paying full retail or close to it.

This is the one I got. I added a blue led fan at the rear too, making four blue led fans in all.

Thanks Data and Freddy Cheesy

@Freddy nice case. The top is very pleasing to look at, not like most cases which are plain in there styling.
Side panel is pretty stylish as well  thumbsup thumbsup

I like the side loading HDD arrangement you have on yours Syber. Useful to have for the tinkerer.

Yep the top of this case has a fine mesh and a fan in it. I thought it was a good idea to have that because heat rises...makes sense to do that really.  None of my other cases have had that.

Very nice Freddy.

Mine also has a fan in the top, seems to have one in the bottom and one in the back as well from what I can see possibly one in the front too behind the mesh Grin

I'm not too crazy about the lumps on the side of the case but like Data said it ads character  Tongue
One of the features I wanted was easy hard drive install and removal, due to the fact on one of my older cases I actually had to remove the motherboard just to remove or install a hard drive. Do that a few times and you will understand my wanting this feature.

another feature I was looking for was dust covers, after cleaning Trinity all these times I'm actually getting tired of cleaning mass amounts of dust. Hopefully this case stays pretty clean on the inside me fingers are crossed
