    I'm looking for a case for gaming, i'm getting an I7 overclocked with a cooler and i have a lengthy graphics card, i don't mind how big it is and i'm looking for one with plenty of cooling but is also balanced with being quiet. Any recommendations? No price limit

    ^^ This.

    Great case. Good price. Can cool very well with fans added.

    Failing that, I'd look at something like a Corsair Graphite

    I've recently acquired an R4. It rocks.

    So you'd recommend adding more fans to it? Which fan would you recommend i add and how many/where? I dont want to add too many to make it noisy or pick a fan that is noisy.
    Much appreciated.

    I've just picked up an R3, and it's instantly shot up into my Top 3 of Cases.

    What's the difference between the R4 and the new Core 3000?

    I can't see much difference, apart from a bit of rubber on the routing holes, and probably a bit better build quality with thicker steel due to the R4 being 12Kg and the Core 3000 being only 7Kg.
    Cooling wise though, looks pretty much the same, 3000 might even be better due to the entire front being perforated.
    Visuals, I think the Core looks better.

    And price, the core 3000 is £30 cheaper. Seems alot for not much gain to me.

    What i'm doing is upgrading my current motherboard + cpu. And so i'll be making another computer with these parts, my current case is DF-85. However i've had some weird issues with it such as if i plug anything into the front usb ports, then my pc powers down, i've googled it and seems a few others are having the same issue. Do you recommend i stick with the same case when i upgrade or change my case for use for my main gaming pc?
