same case as me chrisftl

The only case I would consider an upgrade is the Silverstone TJ07.

BTW, since all the new SATA III 6GB/s SSDs are coming out, I may as well wait until they come down in price. In about a month, I could afford a Crucial C300 256gb, but would rather not spend like $760aud on an SSD and have no more money to buy anything else. I think I will stick to something like the Intel X25-m 80gb, Seagate 500gb hdd and get another ATi 5850. Speakers would be cool, but I don't really need them.

*Shrug* 4 star on Newegg with 300 reviews and all the review sites said it was decent. at 35 dollars I couldn't say no. The other was a Cooler Master Silent Pro M600 but that was 62 bucks.

Might as well post my specs again, along with a few peripherals:

Case: Cooler Master Stacker 830 w/ window
PSU: Thermaltake 1200w (was only $275aud)
CPU: i7 920 @ 4ghz
GPU: ATI 5850 @ 1000mhz/1100mhz
RAM: 3x2GB G.Skill Trident 2000mhz @ 1600mhz
Motherboard: eVGA X58 Classified E-760
Sound card: X-Fi Elite Pro
HDD: Seagate 500GB
SSD: Intel X25-M 80gb
Monitor: BenQ G2400W (no need to upgrade)
Mouse: Razer Deathadder 3500DPI (Logitech MX518 broke)
Keyboard: Logitech G15
Mouse pads: Razer Sphex, Razer eXactmat, Razer Goliathus Speed (medium)


I thought of going RAID 0, but it just won't be worth it. One 80gb SSD for my OS and main programs is plenty. HDD will remain for a while I think for other things like games i rarely play, music and videos.

I do plan on buying some computer speakers instead of another 5850, but we will see in about a month what I end up getting

OH MAN. haha forgot to mention that i also have a creative sound blaster titanium sound card.

and yeah, stang. our cases are lil' beasts. no joke though, it's HUGE. i had to actually buy a new desk to fit it. (uh, i needed a new desk anyway, though. haha) i'm not sure how to feel about the tj 07. i feel that lian li cases and maybe antec are the only companies that can one-up. i've seen a few other contenders recently, but i don't really remember any of them.

my only gripe is the front panel connecters are so flimsy and badly wrapped. one bad move on those sharp corners in the case, of which there are plenty (i can't go in it without my hand coming out full of mysterious scratches), and those cables are done.

Yeah it's pretty shocking on the inside. No real means of cable management and those front panel cables are terrible, almost too short to reach the connectors on the mobo. I once accidently pulled one of the cables from the front panel and canot get it back in again, as the case is so cramped there, I need to pull it apart

Have you seen the CM ATCS 840? DAMN! Inside you could fit a stacker 830

It is monstrous on the inside, PLENTY of room for the motherboard etc. But the only real case I consider an upgrade is the Tj07. I would only buy that if I were going liquid cooling though.

That's a beautiful build: fully utilized case but with ample & quiet cooling. Only thing I'd add is an ugly bolt-on handle for portability
