    copper- best emi protection
    steel- very good emi protection
    aluminum- moderate emi protection
    acrylic- no emi protection

    Aluminum is the best material. I have a Coolermaster and i love it almost as much as i love my girlfriend. And i would die for her. :rock:

    *cough...give me a beak...cough*

    Anyways...on topic I'd go with aluminum. Its decently tough, polishes nice, and doesn't way a ton. I am being built free side panels and was just informed they are being made of 1/8" to 1/4" stainless steel.

    :waah: It's going to way a ton... :idea: Paperweight!!!
