Had to document the box my computer case came in: "Fully equipped with one 140mm and three 200mm fans for the high airflow and low noise"
"Unrivalled Cooling Capacity to mount up to nine fans for a symphony of airflow"
High-end water cooling solutions up to three fans for a push-pull configuration: 90mm of internal top space with top 280/360mm and bottom 240/280mm radiator support for unmatched liquid cooling"
"Rear I/O white light for visibility in dark environments with a toggle switch"
My case: By far the best I've ever owned, though it has a fatal flaw with harddrive noise in certain harddrive cages, and I wish the windows were bigger, and I wish the color-cycling could be automated. But still: This NZXT Phantom 820 Series case was $199.99 from NewEgg.

BACKSTORY: Building my new computer! We decided to name it Thailog. Thailog ("Goliath" spelled backwards) is the evil twin of Goliath from the cartoon Gargoyles±. ±Carolyn's± computer is named after Goliath, so it just makes sense that ±Clint's± computer is the evil twin of ±Carolyn's± computer. A quick summary of the computer's specs is: Intel Core i7-5820K Haswell-E 6-Core 3.3GHz with an Arctic Freezer I30 cooler on a ASRock X99 WS EATX motherboard with 24G of Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4 2400mHz RAM, a Radeon R9 270 video card, and a Crucial M500 240GB M.2 SSD...all inside a massive NZXT Phantom 820 case. It was a $1560 build, summarized on my blog at clintjcl.wordpress.com/2015/03/06/journal-hardware-purcha...
