I was going to buy this case <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProductDesc.asp?description=11-145-025&depa=0" target="_new"> Click </A>
But from the reviews its flimsy and small.

I want a case with those colors however. It will have watercooling in it with a dual rad, so it needs plenty of room somehwere inside. I liked the fan on the window though, cause I was thinking I could use it as an exhaust fan for the dual rad. Im only going to have one SATA harddrive, and two optical drives. I want a good looking case in those colors, but one that is high quality. Thanks for the help.

Cheap copy of a Chieftec Dragon perhaps? Check out the Chieftec cases at Newegg and tint the window yourself if you have to :smile:

I bet its a POS, it looks flimsy and is far too cheap.

Well I decided on a new case: the Thermaltake VM1000a, problem is, I can't find any in the US that are under $160. If anyone knows where I can get one for cheaper that would be great.

That's a hell of an about-face from a $50 case to a $150 dollar one. But yeah, that powmax, spiffy paintjob, flashing lights, I'm betting that leaves about $20 left for the PSU and Case. Not gonna get great quality on either. Anyway, based on pricing and experience, any computer brand with 'MAX' in the name sucks. (with the exception of maxtor).
