Which case is the best performer/value for the money?
MY current case is very cramped and I'm running CPU temps of 47C idle with the side cover off. I need maximum cooling and a good value. I'm leaning towards the Tornado, but if anyone has any better suggestions please share. Thank you :)

WinWBK38/ArcticSilver and a sardine can for a case.

I own the Addtronics 6896A and can't say anything bad about the case. I chose thise case after reading nothing but good reviews on the case and everything Addtronics makes.

The case is sturdy, has great airflow for overclockers and has so many extras that other cases don't have. One thing that seperates this case from others that I have seen is the way it is built. The designers definitely took their time with it.

It is expensive though, after shipping I paid about 200.00 with all the extra fans and the deluxe castor wheels. But it was well worth it imo. I don't mind spending extra for items that I don't plan on upgrading for quite some time (i.e.-cases, monitors)

Check their home site for some reviews that have great pics on them.

I am leaning towards this case, it seems to be going for 80 bucks with the front fan included. I'll probably do a mod to the side of the case(sometime) There seems to be a substantial temp. drop with a fan (or two) blowing onto the AGP/CPU area according to varying reports with different cases. But then again, the Tornado looks pretty nice...decisions! THanks for responding :)
