    I am on the verge of buying this bundle:

    Intel Core i7 920 D0 Stepping (SLBEJ) 2.66Ghz @ 4.00GHz Max / Gigabyte EX58-UD5 Intel X58 Motherboard / Patriot Viper 6GB DDR3 PC3-12800C8 1600MHz DDR3

    I would like to know which case people think is suitable (to accomodate the large heatsink in terms of size, cooling & noise)?! I am looking at the Coolermaster RC-1000 Cosmos Silent Full Tower Case, but wondered what other suitable cases have been used with the above bundle?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    The Silverstone FT01 would fit those components quite comfortably. Good cooling, excellent cable management and noise profile. Looks better than the CM, but that's subjective. Similar price point.

    I put mine in the Antec 300. Works fine.
    If I had the money, I would probably have gone for either the RC1000 or the new ATCS 840.
