no ill just keep my case, but that thermaltake is a killer case

not portable at all though, but mine isn't exactly a traveling lan case either

ahh, suppose i should read the review also

that thing is designed to hold 2 independent computer systems, and can hold 1 more 120mm fan then mine :cry:

and what do you do with your computer?

personally i could use a bigger case, but most likely not that big. I am currently pushing around HD video on a singel drive. I would really like 4x drives on a RAID-0 for this kind of work. but i think i am going wait till Vista comes out and buy dual Core 2 extreme (hopefully they will be at 3.7Ghz or greater by then)

That's the first Thermaltake case I've seen that looks good...everything else has either been way too bling (Xaser line) or a copy from something else (i.e., Coolermaster).

I'm still happy with my modded Antec P160 though.

Here's a review of the Thermaltake Mozart Tx case:

http://www.overclockercafe.com/Reviews/ ... index.html

Personally, I don't like it. Also not to impressed, since I had an idea about 2 years ago for a similar shaped case (mine was to 'fuse' 2 server towers together side-by-side). [-X

I love that one of the cons is the price

$270.76 shipped is damn cheap for a case like this

mine was $330 shipped

im actually very seriously considering this case

if that is the case, do i have any offers on mine?

I like this case myself...at least the internals. Not as sure on the exterior. My current case looks good, and is big (hey, the 6 CD bays come in handy!), but the internal design leaves ALOT to be desired...Gonna switch right after I get that C2D...

Sweet :)

I think the 810 is the newer version of that, but I'm not 100% sure.

Either way, I really like the interiour layout...especially how the PSU is at the bottom of the case...
