  1. P180 FTW I have it and it's well insulated, well laid out. Also has 2 tri-cool fans included. Get another one for the front to complete the job. The power supply is at the bottom of the case in a separate compartment AND it's separate from the "UPPER" chamber. This DOES indeed cut down on heat production since the cpu and GPU do a good enough job at doing that . I wish I could input a shot of my case so you could see how I have mine laid out. Oh yeah, if you do decide to go with an Antec P180, make sure you get a power supply that has a long wire harness. I had to mod my wires to "CLEAN" up the inside for good airflow and also I found that my 4 pin MOBO plug was short ( the plug that is just above the cpu ). However, if you like to do stuff yourself, like me, then the wiring won't be an issue. Thermaltake power supplies have an adequate harness length. Now you will have PLENTY of recomm's for which case to get, but for your case budget, silent operation, TONS OF ROOM for HDD's ( I have 3 myself) , you can put at least 6 HDD's with lots of room. Great case for the money. Go to www.antec.com and browse to the P180 case. It has lots of images and an interactive 180 degree view to see tha whole enchalada
