    Anyone with any pointers - will be appreciated.

    I want to build a new Pc around an overclocked Pentium 4 2.4 or 2.6 on air cooling -

    never done this before, but for now i am looking for the Pc case only - PSU - picked later

    Mid tower Size black or silver, with window and maybe drives hidden behind a door. Nothing too over the top but stylish

    I want one with good airflow, but what size, number of fans etc should i be looking at for a good overclock? Been looking for weeks but totally overwhelmed by types. Maybe only one fan is ok?? Don't Know

    Is money spent on a case that important as prices vary a lot between steel and aluminium. Not many with 120mm fans around either - Antec P160 looked ok - but never seen it close up.

    I saw a cool Skyhawk case with motorised door but read the case is poor for cooling

    Also most cases i see have the front fan intakes externally covered - seems pointless

    Any links appreciated

    Check out Thermaltake here
    I have had two cases made by thermaltake and they both have excellent potential for good cooling. Plenty of space for fans etc. Perhaps a little OTT for some but well made.

    Hope this helps.
