This is the cheapest, although I worry about room for vid cards with passive cooling as the radiators can be quite large.
I really like the looks and fans on this one as it has two 120's up front and I already have fans I can stick in it. The dust filters are nice too and really important to me.
I love the locking levers on this although I hate the two 140mm fans on the front as it's hard to find quite and powerful 140mm fans that mount in 140mm holes (they all fit 120mm holes), and on top of that the fans on this case have failed in some reviews I've read which means I may have to replace them. I could not use my 120mm scythes on it.
I like the looks of this one too, but it has a 140 up front so I may end up having to buy a new 140 for it. Two 120's probably beats 1 140.
This would be used with a $1000 range pc hopefully with fan-less cards (unless I can find a VERY quiet 6870 for cheap soon. I don't mind the sound of rushing air. I do hate whines, and buzzes and hums though.)
Oh, and I will be using one of those quiet seasonic power supplies, either the 650 or 750 plus gold rated one. Would the fan blow the right way for use on the antec case?
