Im buying a new case, ive looked at many cases and I have narrowed it down to the <A HREF="http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/images/case/dx01blueb.jpg" target="_new">Chieftec DX-01 Midi Tower</A> and the <A HREF="http://www.coolermaster.de/images/atc-710.jpg" target="_new">Cooler Master 710</A>.

Which do you prefer, or are there other cases you recomend?

Cheers

Both case are about the same. I would just get the cheap one. You might want to check out Lian Li PC60 series case. I think they are the best case.

Yeah the <A HREF="http://www.chieftec.com/products/Workcolor/ColorMA.htm" target="_new">matrix</A> one looks pretty cool but i went for a black <A HREF="http://www.chieftec.com/products/Workcolor/ColorTX.htm" target="_new">Scorpio</A>.

I also bought an <A HREF="http://www.epox.nl/english/products/motherboard/ep-8k3a.htm" target="_new"> Epox 8K3A+</A>, 512mb of DDR 2100 :D

That Chieftec DX-01 Mid Tower look like the Antec SX1040 except in blue with an extra case fan on the side. I would go with the black Antec SX1040 if I would need to buy another case, they got great 4 fan cooling setup (2 front, 2 rear) straight out of the box (fans might not included).

That other case look too weird.

<font color=red>Got a silent setup, now I can hear myself thinking. hmm still silence</font color=red>

d00d, the Chieftec and Antec cases are both made by the same company and are identicle. You can find the Cheiftec cases for $40, $50 in colors, a great value for people who would rather choose their own power supply.

What's the frequency, Kenneth?
