    I want something that has plenty of cooling for at least a couple of hard drives and a Conroe chip. No cheap flimsy junk or rice, please.

    I have Xaser III case that's a tower and it came with 7 built in case fans. I haven't hooked it up cuz I'm waiting to buy all my server hardware after I graduate. I do know some people that built one and they said it wasn't very noisy at all and had great ventalation.

    This link is not my exact case but it looks similar:

    the Xaser series has been shitty the entire way. Re-branded Chieftec cases with stupid ricer styling is all Xaser gives you.

    Fuck thermaltake.

    depends on numerous factors. Sparkle is perfect if you want no-frills, server-grade reliability for a good price. Fortron gives you a little more in the way of features and looks, but has Sparkle build quality. Enermax is more of your "feature-oriented" PSU for a decent price. PC Power & Cooling would satisfy your ultimate desires, at the expense of a thin wallet.
