Right this is a bit of a lazy shopper question...
I'm in the UK and I want a Coolermaster Wavemaster case (in plain metal)

Can anybody find a price on one cheaper than that at overclockers.co.uk
I also need a windowed side-panel...

I'm awarding lots of points for this one because i need accurate answers and I need them fast, so points for speed too.

Including window and VAT overclockers charge £125

Also pionts for people that reccomend a case which is cheaper than that which i'm taken by... I look forward to seeing your results...
The reason I want this case is the complete aluminium build which is fantastic for case cooling.... I'm an avid overclocker so I need as much cooling as possibe and steel just doesnt cut it when it comes to a high powered CPU running 20% above the recommended max settings....

Added bonuses if you can help me find them cheap or built into a case:
- Air filters to stop dust getting in my case
- Better lighting systems than cold cathodes
- Good HD cooling (currently have a fan ing front of them pushing air over them)
- Good and fairly quiet fans...

The system going in this is a AMD64 3700+, 1 gig of OCZ Ram, 4-6 HDs, and 2 DVDRW drives... With an Antec Trupower PSU...

I know how to cool a system so no points for the traditional "airflow" answers...
Points will only go to people who answer any of my points or people who genuinly help me...

Ultimate_NescaFe: yeah similar prices on the wavemasters and i'm not too keen on those thermatakes, i've played with a few and they're just not as solid as the wavemaster...

jbedwar1: similar prices again... but thanks The komplett one woud be cheaper with shipping but they're out of stock for a little bit...

I'm looking for sub £100 prices here because it is a lot of money for a case...
