Advise on "Best" Air cooled case

Was wondering on a good case with the best Air cooling options so far I have been looking at the

http://www.nmsuperstores.com/store/i...&productId=648

Since you get a 25cm Side fan Top grill and fan and also you can customise the front to add 3 more 120mm fans, Id say it has exellent intake and exhaust but I would like to hear your opinions .

That's a pretty thermal-friendly case. The Lian-Li cases are designed with good thermal dynamics in mind too, I'd have a look at those as well.

Currently the best case for air cooling is the Akasa Eclipse. I know the front is ugly but the case itself is very very good

and just in case you missed this, Stacker gets my vote too (so wish I'd gone for one over the T/Take Armor)
