    I'm getting a Cooler Master Centurion 590 instead. Is this case good for overclocking i7 920 to about 3.2-3.4 Ghz?

    Why 300, the price?
    I hope you're getting a good aftermaket air cooler before you even thinking OC the i7. This sucker run pretty hot if you overclock it.

    Yeah, basically because it's a lot cheaper than other cases. And I wasn't thinking about buying another cooler, just extra fans.

    If you're on a tight budget, take a look at the Cooler Master 690. Very good case and ventilation for the price. An excellent budget case.

    the extra case fan are not going to help keep overclocked i7 any much cooler than as with CPU stock cooler.

    Yeah, so for $10 more I'll buy a Centurion and with another $20 I can get 4 120mm fans. Would this be a better idea for overclocking to 3.2-3.3Ghz?

    Seeing as your planning on overclocking, the Antec 300 is not going to provide enough cooling. We will be publishing a review on the new Azza Solano 1000, this case is under $100, it has two 140mm fans in front, 120mm in the rear, 200mm fan on top panel, and another 200mm on the side panel.

    This case is black inside and out, and it's also a full tower, this should leave you money left over to buy a air cooler, something like Xigmatek's Dark Knight, so you can overclock your new 920. In our review, Sky was able to hit 4 Ghz with this cooler.

    I concur. It's not the least expensive though but if someone can swing the extra budget this rock is simply amazing. Looks at your case as an investment, spend an extra $30 on it and it'll last several years. Definitely worth the money......just order one less pizza and case of beer and BOOM, there's your new hotrod case!

    Attachment 57It's not stupid buying the case you need to fit your build, most cheap cases are just that cheap. The HAF is a decent case, so is the Solano 1000 both offer excellent airflow. My custom Silverstone TJ-07 was made to fit my Boreas, which brings me back buying the case to fit your build.

    The CoolerMaster ACTS 840 is another excellent case, one of the best we have ever reviewed. What I am looking forward to is the new Obsidian 800D check out the photos, this case will be $299
