i would go with the aspire since it has a 420watt psu and is tool free.
don't see how this could be a cooling question though, lol
i believe there is a case section..

my friend runs a 2.4c intel with regular stuff and has a 350watt psu working fine. but personally, i would be a little ify on anything under 400watts, expectually if u plan on adding fans, cathode lights, ect.
btw, the asprie also has removable HD bay which is really nice, but the enermax does have a nice temp display..
well for 11 bucks more + an extra 5 bucks shipping for the enermax, the 16bucks u save can get u nice baydrive fan controller/temp display, lol

The Aspire looks like a better cooling case. Its front bezel has an open grill, allowing its intake fans to take-in outside air.

I am going to have to agree with anvil82 on this on b/c niether case has sufficent cooling!

Mattman gives u a link to the Antec Solution Series Case with 350W Power Supply and it is one heck of a case with a great cooling system in it already! And besides that on the other cases what ur realy paying for is looks, and the antec case u get both
looks and some sweet cooling!

I know the Antec cases are excellent and that case does look quite nice! I wonder if the front door can be removed easily from that case? Bill

Both cases seem okay, though I like the 2 rear 80 mm fan mounts on the Enermax better. I'm partial to Antec cases myself though (along with some experienced folks here) so check this out :http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProdu...1-129-122&catalog=7&manufactory=BROWSE&depa=1

Happy Holidays! :)

I like the Antec better just because of the quality of the chasis, but what you probably don't realize on the Enermax case, is that it also includes a fan controller, which explains why it's so expensive compared to other cases just like it. If you go to Directron, you'll see they have the exact same case and it shows you the fan controller in detail.

My buddy is actually getting that exact same Enermax case against my wishes. For under 100 bucks he could have gotten a Thermaltake Xaser shipped. That Enermax is 90 bucks shipped :eek:
