eh sorry i didn't mean to make it seem like i was attacking you, i guess it kind of did. anyways, i'll list reasons i don't like those two cases for modding. and the reason i stated 300 was because of the fact you plan on modding it; it's going to cost you another 50 on top of the 250 for the temjin, which is what i was inferring.
-i don't see why this case costs 250$.. i wouldn't even classify this case as awesome.
-hard drive brackets suck. if you wanted a suspended hard drive setup, you're pretty screwed with this case. this may not be a priority to you, it is to me though.
-80mm fans. it's going to be a bitch to mod this case to fit 120mm fans. this may not be a priority to you, but it means a lot to me.
-not enough room for a dual PSU setup. maybe you want to mod it to include this, it'll be a bitch considering you'd need to put the second psu on the side of the case, but i guess it's possible. would increase temps though unfortunately, since there's not enough room for it since it wasn't designed for this. i'd rather just get a case that can actually fit 2 psu's properly in the first place.
-no easy access side panel door. i'm spoiled. maybe this would be a cool mod to undertake, though i think the time:benefit ratio isn't very good.
i'd honestly just stay away from this case. aesthetically the thing is beautiful, maybe this is what you're going for, but i'd rather something with more functionality.
the coolermaster case
-are you sure you can cut through that blue stuff and not ruin it? i'd check out the thing in person first just in case.
-i'm guessing your mod doesn't include painting, because it'd be a bitch on this case.
-front panel only has 4x 5.25 inch drive bays. if you're modding you'll probably have at least two of those used up by fan/drive controllers. are you sure there's enough room in this case?
-80mm fan problem again. might not be an issue to you.
-psu problem again, only here it's impossible to make a dual psu setup. maybe this doesn't apply to you, you might have enough juice with just one for what you do.
case isn't very roomy inside honestly. sometimes this is better though depending on what you're doing.
about the lian li.. i like that case a lot more than the two you listed. if you're modding you can actually do something original with it since it's not already modded for you. there's plenty of room on the bottom for a dual PSU setup. the fact the psu's are on the bottom is a lot more efficient also. the drive cages are great - you can do anything with those. there's 5x 5.25 bays like the temjin, so a decent amount of room for that. comes stock with 2x 120mm fans like any case of this caliber should. this case is really worth the money in my opinion... the two from xoxide just aren't to par with this lian li in any way shape or form.. except maybe aesthetics (and i wouldn't say the lian li is a slouch in this category by any means.. just doesn't have flashy blue paint that's ruining some heat dissipation).
