is that the Best Buy case that I have seen several people posting about? I've never seen an actual full case shot of it before yours. Looking good!

Yup .. that's the one.. You'll be amazed by its size. It is taller, higher than TT Armor 8003 series..... plenty of room for water cool system..... specially for its price... no other full tower aluminum cases can beat its price (~$50 at local Best Buy). Recommended case.

I nabbed a couple of those Rocketfish cases too - can't beat the deal! Did you remove the H-shaped aluminum from the front intake opening? I have found that that metal causes noisy interactions with many of the fans I have here - particularly the stock one, but most others as well. The same shape metal piece in the filter holder doesn't seem to cause the problem as it is far enough from the front of the fan.

No. I did not remove that h-shape, but instead, I replaced all stock fans with what I already had (SilverStone FM121)

I must say that the case is awesome and nobody can beats its price .... :D :D

Looks like there is plenty of room for some serious cooling. And some serious cooling you have put in it, I'm quite jealous.

Just how big is the case? (I'm thinking grab a tape measure :P)

Instead of re-do my case, I asked my nephew-in-law to search around.. He finally found the last case in the Best Buy store (close be his house) at cheap price ($49.99 +tax). Result as follow ....

Below are some pictures of my 2nd Rocket Fish case .... :supz: :supz:

Note: Pictures were taken just after I finished put thing back into case. As you can see, the RAMs were not there ... :D ... All were done after 3 beers .... :drinkers: :drinkers: :drinkers:

Now that you've put in a window, you need to find some way of tidying up those wires in there :axe:

Looks like a very clean cut ^_^
