I want to buy this case

http://www.amazon.co...60950184&sr=8-1

and wondered if it's okay. Is it a good one? Are there enough fans, etc?

Hey.

I have the same case and it is really good. There are enough fans but if you want u can buy a 2nd fan for the top of the case.
Enough slots for everything.

greets

My first case was the Antec 900, it had that kind of mesh on the side too.
Don't take it, the noise it going to outweigh the 'cool' look.

Take a look at the Antec Performance One cases, they're really silent and of really good quality.
I do not suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

if you want quiet then fractal design define r4 or nanoxia deep silence 1

the phantom is nice enough, I don't like the look of it but thats personal

other than that all-round I'd recommend corsair 500r or 600t depending on how much money you want to spend

I don't care too much about noise and it seems to be a good case overall so I ordered it.

What does the USB 3.0 in the title of the product mean? Does it mean that the front USB connections are as fast as the back ones that come from the motherboard?

I've got the case and changed cases. It was the first time for me doing this and I heard cable management is important for cooling.
Can you tell me if it is fine?

Looks fine except for what I'm guessing is your 4/8 pin cpu power going across your cooler.  Can you not fit that behind the motherboard?  (There's a hole directly above and left of it, which is typically there expressly for the purpose of that cable and any back & top fans you have).

But even with that, looks fine.  Not a big deal.

unless you get an extension cord the cpu power cable can sometimes be a bit too short to route behind the mobo, I've not built with a HX model before so I'm not sure about that one

you could always give it a try

You're right, it's too short and that's why it doesn't go behind. I'm not going to purchase something just so I can push the cable behind. I guess it will work fine like this, way better than what it was before.
