A HUGE NZXT H440 con for me.

There's no place to put a CD/DVD drive. I know I could easily install my OS via USB but I've never done that before and I like watching movies from my collection of movies and ripping CDs from my CD collection. I love the case but it's making me REALLY not want to buy it.

Buy an external drive and slide it underneath the front of the case.

Not hard at all to install your OS via flash drive or external hard drive. I haven't done an install or build in about 9 years and I just installed W8 the other day on my machine... I have the 440, it's a gorgeous case.

How is this one? I'm just worried about how loud it will be.

Go with whatever you are comfortable with.

I wouldn't think the drive would be that loud. Plus if you are watching a movie using it you'll have sound to cover it.

Ah... CD collections, I remember those... then someone stole mine.

Well I never invite people over to my house so I tend to not worry about people touching my **** lol a deadbolt and a German Shepard take care of that for me. I'll work my parts list around the H440. My only problem is which color to get. My color scheme is red/white right now but it can be converted to red/black easily at the expense of some peripherals.. I just don't know if I want to sacrifice those. Here is the parts list I have so far.

Yea, I was in HS and kept a book under the seat of my car... pos car, literally 0 reason for anyone to break in, but they did.

Your scheme will go great with either case. White http://pcpartpicker.com/b/ObB Black http://pcpartpicker.com/b/M7Q

I wanted the black and red... but my mb is blue ( http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Wilcstado/saved/3MHP )

I was worried about it at first but it's not a big deal. External CD Drive all the way.
