    gday pals,

    well iv been discussing with Kai on msn about which case i should get and we nailed it down to these 2. However some opinions from the BOARD wud be good.

    Here they are


    Thermaltake Highest Xaser III VM3000 Series Mid Tower (Skull)

    This one will cost me $240 NZ (actually only $90 when i sell my current case)


    and

    Thermaltake Xaser 5 damier Black with window
    This one will cost me $240 as well ($90)


    so which one do you guys like.

    I dont really like the design of the 2nd one, but if its better than the first then i dont care,... ill take it.... otherwise im going toward the 1st one....

    theres also this case but its mainly between the top 2 cases.

    Thermaltake Highest Performance XaserIII Case - Lanfire

    i would say the skull one is a bit nice, because it doesn't have a checked pattern on the front - actually, i think they're both ugly

    how was it unnecessary? it fits your question perfectly. you asked which one was better, and he said neither. you never said that he had to pick one...

    for the case: if not then google "U2-UFO" to find any that do.

    same with the vapochill cooler. i was originally planning on promoting those new drivebay watercoolers but then remembered the extra case worth of room inside that beast and sed to myself "Why not a vapochill???"

    in fact, why not 3 vapochills? one for the cpu, the other for the northbridge + voltMods, the other for the GPU

    see why im promoting the vapochill tonight, kai?

    i suggest the 1st one. but i would prefer not getting a extremely flashy case, but put good shit inside. i would get a regular chieftek/lianli/wtf/huh (tower with window) and put some wc in it. still ends up around &#036;240, maybe less. but u get good power. u can always mod up a plain looking case.
