If there was an Nvidia Edition of that case, I'd get it in a second

That probably would look good!

The chances of them making an Nvidia Edition of it are probably slim, but looking at it, I doubt it'd be that hard to mod myself. The side panel is pretty much the same, so all I'd have to do is cut out a side window and take the window off my current case and stick it on, respray the silver strips and take my Nvidia badge off of this case and stick that on the front, and voila

That sounds like a plan my friend!

This is my Cooler Master HAF 932. This after I modded it a little bit. I of corse. Painted the inside black. Did some painting on the outside, as you can see. I added some UV lighting. With some UV reactive cables and fans. I guess you can consider this a work in progress. But I wou HIGHLY Recommend this case. It keeps all of my stuff nice and cool. And it looks awesome too. Let me know what you guys think!

The nicest 2 features of the Smilodon are A) Both side panels open all the way and/or can be removed...and B) Airflow is excellent...Q6600 never gets above 41C even when beatin the snot out of it.

BigBlitz, I just bought a new Haf 932 today. Took me hours to move everything over, and get it all ready.

Then I messed something up and it wouldn't boot, which took me like 2 hours to fix. Of course, I messed up my OS, so I am reinstalling now.

However, I LOVE the case. It is amazing. The hard drive bays are the best thing I have ever seen, SO much better than my Antec 1200 (which was awesome, but drove me crazy). The only mod I have in mind for now is filters for the fans. I was thinking of using a semi-thick fabric as a filter, anyone have any other ideas?

looking at computer cases
I'm looking at computer cases and cant seem to make up my mind. I'm mainly looking for good air flow rather than style or prettyness. It needs to be between $50-$80 and support Micro ATX motherboards. Outside usb ports would be nice on the front or top
