    People say ThermalTake stuff is ugly but I think the Soprano and Tsunami are very nice cases.

    Yeh sum of there stuff is like there new case thats out. One thing i dont like is the toolless 5.25 as you have to have full size devices and same with the 2 xternal 3.5 drives i got a 3.5 card reader and it was to sort could only scre it in with 1 screw as theres only 2 screw holes on 1 side and 1 hole on the other. Sorted it buy buying a longer card reader. Lots of room in the case. One other thing i dont like is the xtranal drives you have to use devices that have no big knobs and things on them but i gess most doored cases are like that.

    This is the new TT case.
    http://thermaltakeusa.com/product/Chassis/fulltower/XaserVI/VaserVI_index.asp

    I like it a little apart from the top front lights thing and that the power and usb and that are on the top.

    I removed the 2 blue cold cathodes as installing the 3 led laser lights in it very small and bright installing 2 x UV purple 3 led units and 1x blue unit.

    This is the card reader i got 42 in 1 card reader black face plate on it.

    sweet its a good case and i love it lots of roomly thing i dont like is the toolless design on the drives i used thumb screws on mine and u have to use full size devices.

    Top panel a modded its a A.C.Ryan 3x 120mm grill for fans and radiators i have 1 120mm in the front hole at moment other 2 are just got a fan filter in them there is not room for the other 2 120mm fans but if you installed the fans on the outside of the case on the grill and installed grills on the fans it would work or a radiator on the top. :)

    also i have modded the side window fan was a 90mm now is a 120mm with the 120mm grill same style as the top grill.

    About the dual monitor / single wallpaper thing guys. There is a way to get a single wallpaper to fit dual monitors. If you get a picture that is the right resolution, say you have two monitors at 1280 x 1024 and you've got a picture at 2560 x 1024 what you do is set the picture as your wallpaper and set it to do tile.

    It'll do you a wonder of good. Try it out. it's pretty good. A lot better then running a program to do your wallpaper =] Cheers!
