    Having a look around the new Antec super lanboy looks a good bet, alu chassiswith 120mm fans, and it looks good too.



    Buy : http://overclock.co.uk/customer/prod...cat=248&page=1

    Not bad for £55.55
    specs : http://www.antec-inc.com/us/pro_deta...p?ProdID=15001

    As for the mobo its got the hooks that you get on Intel boards, Asteks mounting recomendations for the NB cooler on that board is cable ties.

    do any of the lian li's have 120mm fan mounts? i dont really like the look on the entec one. a few ppl have said to me tog et that but i will be getting a prometeia in the next few months and i think a lian li would go better if i got the matching kit.

    Kind Regards

    there arent any holes for screws or anything around the northbridge on the ic7, I dont think any intel boards have them. All they have are little metal loops on each corner that you can use to strap the waterblock onto. When I setup a water cooler I used those zip ties to hold it in place, sounds a bit dodgy but actually it was very secure and quite tight on there, so I'd recommend that.

    Have a look at the Savrow SR-71 uses 2x 120mm fans. Probably best case you can get and got a great review from custompc mag.

    It is expensive but what about the SR-71 which is only £107 inc VAT & Del and comes with

    4 x casters
    1 x SavRow CardKeeper AGP retention mechanism
    6 x Anodized Thumbscrews
    2 x 120mm fan

    It's only missing the ultra quiet fans and custom painted front panel.

    apols for dragging up an old thread.
    interested to know how the case worked out.

    I'm looking for a full tower with 120mm intake and exhaust. Seems impossible to find.

    I just picked up an Antec 1080 AMG (no PSU) for £30 plus VAT. Comes with 3 x 80mm fans, 2 rear mounted and 1 side mounted. Also space for 2 more 80mm fans in the front (which I have fitted, rude not to). Installed my Abit IC7-G with loads of space for the Zalman CPNS700a cooler. 4 x 5.25", 2 x 3.5", 4 x 3.5" internal. Very quiet and cool (temp wise) case. You can get one with a 430w true PSU for about £84 + VAT. Worth a look and well under your budget.

    I was about to reccomend the new TT Lanmoto cases, they look excellent, and seem to fit the bill nicely.
