    BeanTech doesnt manufacturer the case either. I do not recall the manufacturer off the top of my head, but I am pretty sure its a no-name guy.

    This is the exact same case as the BeanTech BT60B. I know, I bought it about a year ago from GamePC. Don't get me wrong, it's a great case. It was the first case (IIRC) to have rubber hard drive mounting grommets standard. However, the design is a good year old, and other companies have taken BeanTech's design and improved on it (like the Antec Sonata's removable HD trays with rubber grommets). Reply

    I have this case and it kicks ass. I was able to fit a radiator and two 120mm fans on the front part of the back panel of the case. Install is easy and runs beautifully. Blacklight, watercooling and still able to benefit from all the glorious features. Only thing they could have done better is include USB front header wires to the clip-and-go feature. Reply

    I still dont have a hold of this system. Sorry about the double post.

    The Antec Lanboy weighs about 13lbs with a power supply. The Kingwin KT-424 weighs 20lbs without a power supply.

    I have found no evidence of necesity to ground a hard drive on the outside. Obviously, grounding a power supply over the molex is very important, however.

    Grounding - if there's grounding in the HD power connecter, then why does the Zalman heatpipe HD cooler have a separate grounding/chassis wire? They say its necessary due to their rubbber grommet mounts...

    I want to thank the author for writing a good article. I also have a question. I have an Antec lanboy and I really love its weight. The author says the KT 424 is rather heavy. I wonder, how much does it weigh? Or at least, is it as light as a lanboy? Thanks. Reply

    #3 - no need for a grounding cable, remember there's two grounds in the power connector.

    kris - is the typo the only comment worthy of a response from you?

    On the benchmarks page, under decibel measurements, you list "Kingwin KT-436-BK-WM Aluminum" as the first and last case. I'm assuming one of these should be the 424...? Reply

    Wouldn't the harddrives need grounding cables? (because of the rubber mounting grommets) Reply
