note about asgard - screwless locks do come with the case.

I got screwless locks with Asgard too, other thoughts; the included fan is too noisy for non-gaming use, I used a resistor to bring it down to 1000rpm - at which it gives acceptable noise.

And a rear fan, low rpm, should have been included. And a sideway-mounted harddisk-cage with rubber damping would have made the case an almost perfect budget-case.

I wouldn't use such a case for a high-end gaming rig anyway, I use it for my Linux-box and I have added some bitumen damping for extra quiet operation.

For gaming-rig usage I'm more than happy with the Fractal Design R3-case, which is booth silent and happily cools both an OC:ed Quad and a Fermi.

Asgard is a good budget, low performance, case. If one needs just that.

It is sad, that very few manufacturers of cases consider existence of eSATAp (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ESATA#eSATAp). It would be very easy (and virtually without additional costs) to implement this connector in place of typical eSATA.
