I do admit that it looks better in the pics then online. Here are some other great cases from what I consider to be the best chassis maker around.

I have as you know the Kandalf with 2x120mm on front, 80mm on top, 120&80mm on back and the 250mm on the side. And its uber cool, I would love to get a new case but I cant get rid of this.....all fans are quiet except for the TuniQ 120 HSF fan which I need to have med/high to cool my clocked Quad.

I really admire the tidyness of you case...man no matter how hard I try I cant get my case tidy. Also my old man has the Antec 1200 and he routes the cables from the BACK of the mobo...really tidy.

I dont like the second one but the spedo is nice that was one of my other choice's.And my case omg its freaking huge.Its making me rethink my whole area.I cant keep it on my desk like i did with the CM690.So i guess its going on the floor.So im gonna have to get me a piece of .25 alum from work and cut it to fit the bottom on my case(I dont want it sitting on rug) and paint the aluminum brown or tan to match my rugs better

That extra PCI slot is for devices that do not need to be plugged into a PCI slot but fit in an expansion slot, for example my old MSI (Intel 865PE based) motherboard had an extra device that plugged into the motherboards USB headers which provided extra USB ports and diagnostics LEDs but did not have to physically plugged into the actual PCI slot. There are also fans which can sit in slots like those without needing to be plugged into the actual PCI connector, among other things. That is a great feature though, no need to waste and block a PCI slot for one of those type of devices.

Lmao @ Mothow,

Yeah, once its raised of the floot a little bit your good to go, so its not sucking all the dust up. Or just get nice hardwood floors like me and its great!!!!

Some guys are soooooooo hard to please. An Antec Skeleton case is what you really need :P

But that 2nd case is the business, re-movable mobo tray, cable managment the works, tooless design etc. Jeeez throw a dog a bone already...
