http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16811119137 this is the case I use personally and have used it in a friends build as well, has next to unrivaled cooling, and is extremely easy to work with, installation is a breeze. Plus, its built like a tank. There are a few variations of it as well, but it really is fantastic it has 8 fan mounts, one of which is a 80 mm fan behind the CPU the rest can accommodate a variety of fan sizes, up to 140 mm. very room, tooless drive bays, etc. Lots of room for large video cards, extra optical drive bays, hard drives, expansion plus movin stuff around and good cable manegement, only negative I can think about with it is no system speaker which most high end cases these days arnt coming with anyway.

I just built the case Patriot recommends, the client who bought the build is happy! Cooler Master has been around a long time, this case is water cooled ready too.
