Even for an air cooled setup it's got tons of fans doesn't it?
I saw the video, I liked the pivoting fans for the Hard drives, but I hate the side windows like that. Using an Azza Hurrican, by the time I get a new case I might look at the 810.
I'd like to take a moment to thank Marest for his sample builds, which helped this first time builder put together an awesome "core" machine (with a little help from my brother and a 12 pack). Also I'd just like to say that this computer forum is a pretty cool place in general; I mostly just lurk here but I've learned quite a bit from it.

Had to do some minor changes after some bank disagreements stopped me from placing my order earlier...
Upcoming PC is going to be
Intel i5 2500k
Corsair Dominator 16GB (2x8GB) I wanted to buy two pairs, but I'd somehow misclicked and only ordered one, lol.
Corsair Force 3 240 GB
EVGA GTX 680
Corsair AX 750
...at least I know my warranty's gonna be real good with almost every one of these companies.
Oh, and also!
drunken drop the 2500k and board and do an EVGA LGA 2011 xeon board with 2 $210 xeons would be sexy.
Xeon is pointless for gaming. And the evga srx has pink expansion slots.
