Another fan of the CM Storm Scout. It's very quiet & has pretty decent ventilation & filtering. I admit I thought the handle was superfluous for my needs but have been surprised at how often I use it (makes moving it for cleaning easy). Losing the space for putting things on top is a nuisance and depending on what you have inside cabelling can be tight. The only thing I don't like about it is that the fans run directly from the PSU so there's no speed control out of the box.

Have just installed some rather kicking components (i7 3930k, 32gb ram, GTX580, 5 Hard drives) into a Storm Trooper which is a step up on the Storm Scout.. I had intended to use a storm scout and ordered one in, but when it came to assembling it the gaphics card wouldn't fit! (something i didnt think to check before hand /facepalm) Maximum length of a card in the scout is 10.5" the card i have is over 11" (GTX580). So ordered the Storm Trooper. All i can say is WOW this case is awesome! It is a full size tower case so is rather large however, but It has all the things i love about the storm scout and more, good looks, cable management, carry handle! good quality fans (theres 4 fans with this case and are speed controllable from the front bezel), and a built in toolbox down the bottom!

Excuse the mess both on my desk and cables in the pc, have yet to do serious cable management.


nice eh!

Nice one, for an example of the ARC I posted above, I currently own it and this is myn setup. As you can see tones of space and for big fans, they are all 140mm except the CPU radiator fans are 120mm. Very quiet system.  

Front and bottom are intakes which have filters so you don't get dust and back / top exhaust. Good directional air flow.
