    It's 50 lbs here. If it's more you are entitled to have help and or equipment to use.

    Yeah of course you wouldn't have a problem with air cooling. It's pretty damn good at it. Though one thing to keep in mind if you get one of these is you need to remove the front pannel and adjust the dust filter on the fan. They put it on too tight so it rubs again the fan. Good idea to have one but a stupid way of putting it on.

    Also if you ever plan on water cooling it does come with pre drilled holes for 1/8", 1/4", and 3/8" tubing for external kits.

    And I'm sure you will be going to water cooling. =P
    (both the 8800GTX and the R600 are comming with preinstalled water cooling units)

    One of my friends has that case for his old A64 3200+, Radeon 9800XT rig... he likes it so much he wants to keep the case and gut it when he upgrades to a Conroe/Radeon x1900XT machine later this year.

    The Thermaltake Armor case is awesome for watercooling, my other friend with a custom DangerDen kit mounted his radiator w/ two 120mm fans on the front of the case with no problems at all.

    I'll post some pics of all three rigs (including my own) next time we have a LAN :O

    I was using this case with my old 4000+ and x850XT setup. Then went to a 4800+ and SLI 7800GTX and now it's a Conroe CrossFire rig. Who knows what it'll be next year.

    Yeah I know they are good for water cooling. The Armour and Kandalf are both the same case as the CM Stacker series (810 just a little taller) just with a different cover.

    I was thinking about getting the Kandalf since it looks better then the Armour but I found it couldn't be locked so I went with the Shark which was a redesigned version of my old Raidmax Scorpio. Which of course both are a damn Antec/Chemming rip off. :icon6:

    I'll post some pics when I start to do my water cooling project with the case. Going to be cutting out 3x 120mm holes on top of the case to mount a tripple rad. Shame that my case is .23mm too short. If it wasn't I could mount everything inside. Just going to have to put the rad on top of the case and the fans inside. Probally get a nice rad grill and some dust filter to put on top of the rad.

    liquid cooling is alchohol+water right? thats what my friend said but my other friend said its only water and never put alchohol in it. but the alinice is alchohol+water and the instructions on my thermaltake says nothing about adding/not adding alchohol to the water

    To be honest. Water cooling is more popular in europe then America. =P

    Liquid cooling is good but expensive.

    You should NEVER use alchohol with water in a cooling loop. The best way to do is is use distilled water. That will give you the best performance. Most of the liquids you buy are just water with car antifreeze (9 to 1 ratio). A lot of them also adds non conductive elements into the liquid so that it wont hurt electronics.

    The stuff that Alienware uses is the Koolance bottled liquid. It's distilled water, antifreeze, blue dye, and non conductive elements. That stuff does work as it says. It doesn't hurt your computer if there's a leek. My res leaked all over my case (stupid plastic barb) and it never hurt my stuff. Also that thermal take stuff is total crap. It clocks up your stuff because it's too damn thick. Looks nice but it will kill your system if you don't change it ever 2 months and flush out your system with water.

    Silly person. Should have gone with non liquid cooled version and added your own. Thoes Tt ones are total crap. Weak pump, crappy rads, horrible blocks.

    Make sure you use your zalmen blocks with it. The Tt ones are no good. Prone to leakage.

    u really think so ,ive examend the blocks and they looked pritty solid , the cpu block is squar and is mounted on with 4 screws unlike my zalman wich is round and only mounted with 2 screws

    anyway i m not planning on switching cases anytime soon ,i changed my mind and i m gonne stay with the kandalf i just love the design. ive just bought it cous its hard to get here and it was in stock atm , i m only planning on putting some peace's in the tai chi when atlon releases there quad core technology, so a few months to go i recon
    and i probably had to change the cpu block anyway cous it probably wont fit on there new socet

    If you want to change your cooling setup I can give you some pointers.

    And thoes Tt blocks tend to crack and leak. Not to mention they don't cool nearly as good as the zalman one. Just because they look good doesn't make them good.

    Lol, I just ripped out those video cards and are going to sell them and go back to my wife's old 7900GTX. Shame on how Crossfire don't work with most new games so it's a little pointless running them on old games as a single card can run them on high settings anyways.

    Oh well. If you want to get horneh over a computer you should check out my wife's. Now that's a nicely done computer. ;)
