What kind of case have you installed your mother board in? Curious to hear what all kinds of cases you people are using :)

The case is not that important, but...

I love silence, good power supply and space (for ventilation and hardware)

so i choose the antec sonata II

I smell a contradiction ;)

Also in my Idea, the case is very important for example in ventilation system, weight, size.


I use Aopen H800(gray). it's a user-friendly server chassis with the restriction for a class B device of the FCC rules, CE, C tick and all EMC requirements.
I realy like it. (I bought it 2 years ago)

you can see it in this link:

Antec Plusview 1000, Nice case but has some faults.

Front USB is not USB2
No brackets for 120mm fan, case needs to be moded to accomodate
Door is flimsy, better if it was unclipable when working on the insides.

I have an Asus Vento 3600:

It may not be the best case (depending on what you want to do with it), but it functions quite well. Between the case and its fans and my water cooling system my Prescott CPU temp idles at 36 degrees and, under a heavy load, is only 45 ... usually only 41.

The case seems to be well thought out and, as a result, it is easy and quick to install everything. Not only that, it is very quite, especially with the water cooling system installed.

Some people don't like the design (and I would not recommend it for those that want to carry off their computers to a LAN party or something), but I am very happy with my purchase.

Edit:

I forgot to mention that it has four front USB2 ports as well as a mic and speaker jack in the front. The case does not require screws to be removed to be opened (you simply twist the handle on the side) and virtually every componant (CDs, DVDs, video card, etc) can be installed without a screw.

The fact that "Prescott CPU temp idles at 36 degrees and, under a heavy load, is only 45 ... usually only 41." Just ammuses me, since you're on water cooling :P

I got the CMstacker by CoolerMaster and it is fantastic. Lots of room, great airflow, very quiet. I was debating on the Lian Li v2000, but I think the CMstacker has a better look and is $100 cheaper.

Why does that amuse you? I didn't fork over big bucks for one of those expensive water cooling systems. It was just the Thermal Take Big Water system. Prior to using the water cooling system I was approaching 65 degrees under a load. I live in a very hot area of the world, btw. I think knocking that much off my temperature was well worth it ... especially considering the ambient air in my office is fairly high.
