    With a reminder about the old adage on advice....

    The Zalman GT1000 Z-Machine case:

    Lots of cooling, tool-free drive bays, double access doors, all good.

    Down side, the LED type cooling fans are more expensive than the normal (non-LED) fans. So are they worth it? My take on all LED fans it that they are expensive eye-candy and are not any better than non-LED fans. Of course, if one of these fans goes out, you can replace them with normal fans.

    Notice they don't list the power supply specs, so is the power supply included? If yes, why not the specs? With all those fans + whatever you install in it, I would say you need 500w or better PS.

    Cooler Master Stacker 832:

    Again, the LED fans. Not much to the specs on the page. You should ask for more, again the power supply question.

    they probably don't have PSU's in them. I would imagine those cases are made for people who buy a seperate PSU so they can be sure they get a good one...as most case-makers don't put high quality PSU's in their case, so buying one with a PSU in it is worthless unless you go with an Antec or something similar...
