Looks awesome. I'm jealous. I wanted the PSU soooo bad, but just didn't have the extra money to spend there. I love modular PSU's. I also love the x25m Intel SSD. It is blazing fast. Watch out though, its so big its hard to find room for it in these cases. With that case you might want to look at getting a heatsink and fan that blows the air out through the top since you have two fans up there. Would like to see some pictures when you get it built.

With that slightly slower CPU and no plans to overclock I was just going to used stock cooling.

What do you mean big, its only 2.5 drive.

I am getting by with stock cooling and I ran the intel burn test. Though the intel burn test really heated up. I was being sarcastic about the SSD. It's smaller than a 2.5 HDD. It's so small I had to modify my drive bay to secure it. It looks hilarious sitting in there.

LOL I missed that one completely
Yeah the case specs state that you will need screws in a screwless case to fit one of those.

They are both very nice looking cases and I am now sad that I didn't buy one. I do like the HAF 932 better. It comes with the side fan and the other doesn't. Also saw better reviews on the 932. Both seem like they will do a pretty good job of cooling. I'm not a fan of the red, but they did have them in different colors on newegg.com.

Led's can be changed but I like the reds blues and greens so its all good.

Sniper has full dust shields and HAF doesn't that could be a major.
More thoughts guys?

I wish I hadn't seen those...

It's like a homeless guy looking in a bakery window, he'll never taste that fresh bread, only the scraps in the bin around back...

LOL.

It looks very impressive, and by impressive I mean it looks like it could sprout legs and take over the planet O_o

Damn!
I want one. I'm currently trying to save up for a new rig, once we know the graphics requirements for TOR. The only problem is that I have no idea how to put one together, only that I'd know where to get the parts.... crap!!

Thanks for posting the pics! I really like the case man. I'm loving the huge fan on the side. The CPU heat sink looks pretty wicked man. Very nice rig!
