    Just ordered some parts for a new pc, cant wait till they get here
    Its funny how you can wait weeks to order something but after you
    order it you cant wait anymore.

    Heres whats coming

    ZALMAN Z-MACHINE GT1000B
    Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem
    EVGA 132-BL-E758-A1 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
    COOLER MASTER V8 RR-UV8-XBU1-GP 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler
    G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
    BFG Tech BFGE98512GTXOCE GeForce 9800 GTX

    I have always wanted one of those case for some reason, just love the
    look of them, And I dont do gaming so this card will do anything I need for sure.

    Hoping to get windows 7 64bit so we will see, gonna use a 500gb hdd I have for now
    Still might order a 150gb wd 10k rpm hdd though since I will have to wait a bit for
    that version of windows anyways, might try out some modded versions of vista 64bit
    until then.

    Anyways will post pics when I get everything, hopefully I can get it
    nice and clean.

    Yeah, you were lucky.
    I clicked the link and saw $600 and was nonplussed, to say the least.
    I've only read about this case- and not very much at that- so it'll be interesting to get a real person's opinion.

    Now you will be able to go back to being plussed I hope.

    I almost bought the case a while ago.One the the boutique builders was using them then(I can't remember which one) and I liked the look but the price turned me off .
    I think it's a good case but not exceptionally cool if I remember right.

    Being minused was a drag.

    Zalman has a very weird history when it comes to cases.
    Their first efforts featured complete heatpipe cooling for the entire case but limited the buyer to a very small range of compatible hardware.

    Now there's this unit which, although the hardware restrictions have been lifted, is priced at the extreme high end of the market.
    Especially odd is the choice of the PSU.
    You'd figure (or at least, I'd figure...) that someone who's willing to drop $600 on case is going to have a pretty high end system to put into it, in which case a 600w unit ain't gonna cut it.

    It's almost as if they approach the case market as a hobby and don't really care if/how many they sell.

    I agree just like there fatality case thats like this one, it had some problems and they had so many logos on it it was retarted.
