hello here for an update.
the scythe does fit into the praetorian with about a few millimetre to spare, very close shave.
i love the case it's very good for airflow considering i took at every single fan out of the case fans and not running any. got a 120mm on cpu blowing through the heatsink and out the rear case vent, and thats it.
cpu idles between 30- 35C on athlon64-3200
the down side is, the case is very loud for yr hard drives. it doesn't come with any rubber washers so the harderive connects directly against the chassis and amplify the sound.
if yr getting this case make so u get some hard drive enclosure boxes, im looking for some now. wud apprecaite some recommendation.
