    I've just finished building my system with a P180, and I must say it was a great case to work with - cabling can be tidy if you spend time figuring out the best ways to route them. I didn't have any problems with the PSU, but, I did have an Antec PSU I suppose the two are quite likely to work well together

    yep . with door , must cover the dvd rom , dvd rw, floppy, etc.., but the door must stay in an metalic front panel not plastic like my TT. Like I sayd before must be 100% metalic chassis,(maibe the only the window could be plastic).
    Lian Li 101 could be an option...

    Hmmm, Antec slacking a wee bit?
    My akasa mirage does the same. Really annoying when i was putting the gfx in, i have to kinda jam the monitor in the port, hope it doesn't break the card.

    Honestly, most dcent cases cool fairly equally, it's the fans, components, and ambient temperatures that are far more important. Get something that's solid, well-built, practical, and that looks good in your study / bedroom whatever.

    My Eclipse 62 also does this. I managed to plug it in by opening up the case and pushing down on the graphics card to make a mm more room. Sucks though.

    Normally you can just hold the card down a touch while you're screwing the back plate in (or using the built-in mechanism, though this can be a bit more tricky). Obviously some cases are simply poorly designed, but I find that's reserved to the cheap cases.

    Me too, I got the corsair 620 PSU, I did need extensions on the 4 pin power cable though as my mobo has that right at the top but the extension cable was about £3 from scan so there were no problems with that at all. I though cable management was easier than most other cases to be honest. It's a superb case when built, really quiet and cool, and it's quite a looker too and it feels really well built.

    the p190 looks nice but the dual PSUs, hmmmmmmmm, seems overboard tbh when there are quality 1kw single PSUs anyway.

    EDIT: Also i have the tj05, its nice but cooling is not too great cause front fasia/ hard drive cage seriously limits air flow.
